Do you have hair that is coarse, wiry, or resistant? Do you struggle to achieve curl definition? Do heavier oils and butters sit maddeningly on the outside of your hair, either weighing it down or making it feel hard and brittle? If any of the above sound familiar, you may have low-porosity hair, which can occur in all textures – from tightly coiled to bone straight. The cause may be due to a variety of factors, from genetics to aging (grey hair tends to have a much more tightly sealed cuticle), but the solution is always moisture. Once moisture is allowed to penetrate the hair shaft, the hair becomes softer, curls pop, frizz abates, and all is right in the world.
But how do you get that stubborn cuticle to open up without the use of harsh chemicals or overly alkaline DIY treatments? We’re thrilled to introduce our Moisture Detox™, one half of our Hydrophil™ System, a unique approach to moisture balancing that not only enhances texture, but which also improves the health of the hair! Formulated specifically for the needs of low porosity hair, the Moisture Detox™ is a pH-balanced treatment that effectively removes build up, gently opens the cuticle and infuses the hair shaft with moisture. Best of all, the results last for weeks (4 – 8 on average*) making this a sustainable and long-term solution to help balance your moisture levels and tame your mane.
The star player in this fabulous fusion is Green Illite Clay, derived from ancient marine beds and rich in mineral content. It is strongly adsorptive, which means it functions as a magnet for toxins. Clay also possesses demonstrated benefits on curl grouping, allowing the individual strands within a curl cluster to more effectively wave or spiral together as a unit. This produces a noticeable improvement in textural definition and curl formation.
A complementary treatment for high-porosity hair will debut later this Spring to complete our Hydrophil™ System and making this the first comprehensive texture-perfecting salon treatment to provide long-lasting cosmetic benefits by improving the overall health of the hair.
Currently, this treatment is available exclusively at the Original Moxie Salon in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
