Yep, I did the water test. After 2 minutes my hair still floated on top of the water & continued to do so for days--lol.
I recently paid for a hair analysis that confirmed that I have low porosity hair, but also stated I had fine hair when I thought my hair was medium or even coarse.
If you wish to find out your hair texture, porosity & elasticity, check out Curl Wizard. For $19.99 you get a profile that tells you what type of hair you have in the aforementioned categories along with a listing of products to try. I think you can purchase the hair analysis sans the product listing for $9.99.
