Why is my curly hair dry?
Textured hair due to its nature and shape will be drier than straight hair. It all starts at the root...the curved shape of the hair follicle makes it more difficult for sebum and water to flow from the root to the ends. The ends being the last to be served will therefore be quite regularly lacking in sebum. Here's why textured hair is generally drier and more brittle than straight hair! But how can we prevent and limit this phenomenon? We will explain everything to you !
The hair follicle
The natural shape of our hair is determined by the shape of our follicles. The more curved the follicle, the more oval the hair and the tighter the curls of the hair will be.
The more curved the follicle, the more difficult it will be for sebum and water to flow down the lengths and to the ends.
Beyond this element, the porosity of the hair is an element which accentuates the problem of dryness of textured hair.
What is porosity? And how to identify it?
We start by visualizing the hair: (be careful we enter the technical part)
Roughly speaking, a hair is a filament of keratin covered with outer layers and inner layers. The outer layer forms scales around the hair (a bit like a pine cone, can you imagine? Perfect!)
This scale can be tight, compact or open.
When the scale is tight, sebum flows naturally and sufficiently throughout the hair. We then speak of normal porosity.
When the scale is open, the sebum does not properly reach the hair fiber and lets water and nutrients escape. We then speak of high porosity, which you will have understood is quite common in textured hair.
Now that you know everything about the nature of your hair, let's see how to fix it!

Here are some tips for keeping curls soft:
-Provide all the needs through a suitable routine: shampoo, conditioner, masks, leave-in or hair milk, fixing jelly.
