Low-porosity hair

Low-porosity hair looks good by nature. They are nourished and heavy and therefore often have little frizz and are “puffy”. They therefore require light-weight styling products. Use lightweight cosmetics to nourish the hair. Use heavy, nourishing products mainly on cold days and apply them to the ends of your hair. This is particularly important in winter when hats and scarves are worn. When styling your hair, choose brushes, which comb your hair well but do not pull it through. In this case, we recommend a brush enriched with coconut oil. Why coconut oil? Because it contains vitamin E, which has a beneficial effect on scalp circulation and thus nourishes the hair. The vitamin K contained in it in turn nourishes the hair roots. Vitamin A is involved in building the hair shaft. The most important feature of coconut oil is that it is hydrophobic, that is, it does not combine with water and thus reduces water absorption by the hair. This makes them less susceptible to harmful weather conditions, or wind and frost. The fact that coke oil reduces water absorption makes the hair not “flabby”, the oil does not weigh it down additionally. And it is known that low-porous hair tends to have little volume. The brush has pins connected to the bristles, so they gently comb the hair and do not irritate it.

Medium-porosity hair

If you have medium-porosity hair, use moderate hair care. In this case, you should be moderate in your use of cosmetics, which if not used correctly can have the opposite effect. Unfortunately, cosmetics are often chosen by trial and error. It is difficult to predict in advance what is best for them. Often it works to use two different ones at the same time, for example high-heat products for the ends to prevent splitting, and light ones for the roots. Use a gentle shampoo for everyday shampooing and a strong cleansing shampoo occasionally. A brush enriched with plum seed oil will also work for medium-porosity hair. The oil has a regenerating and moisturizing effect. It protects against moisture loss and stimulates microcirculation, which benefits the hair roots. It contains nourishing vitamins B and E, Omega acids and regulates the work of sebaceous glands. It prevents greasy hair. Avoid styling and colouring your hair.

Highly porosity hair 

Highly porosity hair requires exceptionally well-tailored styling. Highly porous hair requires exceptionally well-tuned styling: The hair is damaged, quickly becoming static. It is visibly dry and difficult to tame. It is easy to dry hair after shampooing but it absorbs water just as easily. Highly nourishing masks and shampoos are good for hair care. This is why highly nourishing masks and shampoos work well for hair care. Because of its wide open scales, highly porous hair easily absorbs the rich nutrients from cosmetics and gives them back quickly without weighing it down or leaving it limp. In this case, we can recommend a brush enriched with raspberry seed oil.  Raspberry seed oil is ideal precisely for dry and frizzy hair. It is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, so it nourishes them and improves their structure. The hair becomes more resistant to moisture and damage. It strongly moisturizes the hair and makes it more flexible.

When you comb your hair with brushes enriched with oils, you gently distribute the given oil over the entire length of your hair and thus additionally support cosmetic care. The brushes have pins ended with balls and bristles, so they comb your hair gently and do not jerk it. The oil contained in each brush lasts for about six months of use.
