On the flip side with high porosity hair, high porosity hair is lifted the cuticles are lifted, but with high porosity hair, it is very hydrophilic. Before, in a perfect world healthy hair is more lipophilic meaning our hair loves oil, it has better affinity to oil our hair naturally is made up of lipids & oil. So when we go to the other side the hydrophilic side, the water side, that's when the damage can come into play because our hair does not like to be so much in that state, it prefers a lipophilic state. Secondly, hair that is high porosity has more anionic sites meaning it has more negative charges, so every part of high porosity hair and also damaged hair as well where there is any type of damage or chip at the cuticle, there is a negative charge, an anionic site. Anionic hair or negatively charged hair is hair that is more frizzier which can lead to tangles which can also lead to breakage split ends, it can also stunt your hair growth. The effects of having high frosty hair outside of the frizziness is the moisture loss. High porosity hair has a very difficult time of retaining moisture, it can take it in, but it's not holding it in because the cuticles are lifted and that water is literally evaporating out of the hair. And because the hair is losing moisture that leads to drier hair, which leads to breakage and split ends. However, with all that being said, there is a way to care for high frosty hair. The first thing is do hot oil treatments, that is amazing for the hair.

In that case, use apple cider vinegar rinses, it is more ideal to the ph of your hair and it's going to help seal those cuticles as well.

5. Avoid using cleansing surfaces to have a high anionic charge
