  3. Wow. You read my mind as I was just getting ready to request that you discuss porosity and hair type! In various forums I have seen a lot of women in the type 4 category describe the hair as low porosity. With the shape of kinky coily hair strands, isnt it virtually impossible for a type 4 to have low porosity? I understand that low porosity means that your cuticles are closed and laying flat so moisture is better retained but it is also harder to moisturize. But your cuticles can't lay flat on a kinky hair strand because of all the bends and curves. Couple that with the fact most of us with kinky hair have elliptical shaped hair strands and it would be pretty difficult to have cuticles to lay flat. I think alot of women may be confused because they think that because the have to re moisturize frequently that it is due to low porosity (moisture cant get in) when its actually due to high porosity (hair easily loses moisture).

  11. 2. is there a relationship between low porosity and protein-sensitive hair? I reckon I am protein sensitive as I have suffered severe breakage due this.I noticed that all my hair products had one form (or more) of protein and my hair was constantly dry and breaking. I have have since gone to the basics of spritzing my hair with a mixture of water and glycerine and sealing with olive oil and there is a huge difference in moisture level. I was formally rinsing my hair with ACV and spraying hair with aloe juice and I read somewhere (cant remember) that these are acidic and would close my cuticles preventing moisture from entering. So I wonder if there all low porosity hair are protein sensitive.

    I am never going to try the TMS...i think it is a hoax and the maximum hydration method is tiring to read about not to talk of actually doing it IMO.

  12. #5, #2, and #1. I personally have been dabbling in the mhm and have experienced great results. Pinkecube on BlackHairMedia Forum has detailed this method and for me it has brought about significant and positive changes to my hair.

  14. #1 should be interesting. I didn't know what this was until I Googled it.

  15. I agree with Puff; but, adding to that. Transitioning young children who have had texturizers - what are the long term implications to the health of a childs hair.

  16. Another vote for #1. I am not considering anything along those lines for me personally, but better to be informed rather than misinformed about a process that is becoming popular with naturals.

  17. Porosity and the Maximum Hydration method, please! Like jbaby901, I have seen quite a few women stating that the difficulties they're encountering with their hair stem from low porosity. While I think that's entirely possible, it would be nice to see a scientific post discussing porosity and its relationship with temperature, pH, and humidity...and how that relates to care/product usage. As for the Maximum Hydration method, it would be awesome if you could do a write-up on how it might work for shrinky, kinky, "type 4" hair....because I tried it, and the fro wasn't having it!

  18. 1, 2 and 4 in that order.

    I do have other topics that you can discuss but they are probably outside your scientific remit.

  21. Hi JC

    I vote for #5 Maximum Hydration Method - from a scientific viewpoint.

    Thanks

  22. I know you have a lot of articles on mineral oil, but I would like to know if it clogs pores on the scalp and prevent hair from growing OR if anything at all can clog pores on the scalp and prevent hair growth. (I know it sounds a silly question).

  23. I vote for porosity and how it relates to gray hair for us mature naturals.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Late to the party - but I think Porosity and Ethnicity and Hair Products would be fascinating to read about!

  30. I'll look for your blog on Max Hydration. My second choice is Porosity and my real choice would be: Would you update the pH balance list? I'd be interested in additional information on sulfate free shampoos and higher end lines like Paul Mitchell, Aveda, Redkin, Kenra, KeraCare, Joico, Pureology, Matrix, Nexxus, Frederic Fekkai, etc.
