Winter is here, ladies and gentle folk, and with it comes a change in weather that can have a significant impact on our hair. For those with high-porosity hair, the colder months can bring unique challenges. But fear not! MPL is here to guide you through the winter season with tips and tricks specifically tailored to high-porosity hair. Are you ready to embrace the cold with confidence and keep your locks looking fabulous? Let’s get right into it!
Before you can care for your hair, you must understand it. Let's delve into what it means to have high-porosity hair.
High-porosity hair has gaps and openings in the cuticle layer, making it more prone to moisture loss and damage. During winter, when the air is drier, high-porosity hair can become even more vulnerable. But don't worry, with the right approach, you can keep your hair healthy and hydrated.
So let’s get into the essential hair-care tips for highly porous hair:
1. Hydration is key: The key to maintaining high-porosity hair during winter is moisture, moisture, moisture! Hydration should be the focus of your winter hair care routine.
Product recommendation: MPL Hair Treatment 5 Oils is a blend of castor, argan, jojoba, coconut and olive oil that, with continued use, will leave your scalp nourished and moisturised, and hair soft and silky with incredible shine.

2. Deep conditioning delight: During winter, deep conditioning becomes your hair's best friend. Treat yourself to a weekly deep conditioning session or home-made mask. Click here to read more on DIY Hair Masks.
3. Seal in the goodness: It is critical to seal in the hydration in order to prevent moisture loss. After washing and conditioning your hair, apply MPL's Coconut Hair Oil as a sealant - which is perfect for high-porosity hair. This lightweight oil will create a protective barrier, locking in moisture and preventing dryness throughout the day. Don't forget to pay extra attention to the ends, as they tend to be more susceptible to damage.
Product recommendation: MPL Hair Oil Coconut 125g is an effective coconut oil treatment for maintaining strong and healthy hair. Specially formulated to encourage growth, remove dryness, refresh and revitalise your scalp, leaving hair strong and full of life.
4. Protective styling: Winter calls for stylish protective hairstyles that shield your high-porosity hair from the harsh elements. Experiment with braids, twists, or updos to keep your hair protected and looking cute!
5. Avoid overstyling: While it's normal to gravitate to warmth in winter, it's best to keep the use of heat tools to a minimum. High-porosity hair is already prone to damage, and the added heat can exacerbate the issue. Opt for heat-free styles or use heat protectant products if you must style with heat. Embrace your natural texture and give your hair a break from intense styling routines.
6. Hydrate from within: Remember, healthy hair starts from within. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals. Nourishing your body with the right nutrients will promote overall hair health and radiance.
Winter can be challenging for high-porosity hair, but with the right care and MPL's wide range of nourishing products, you can conquer the cold season with confidence! Make sure to follow the tips and share your own below!
