I have long EXTREMELY thick hair, and people always say, "I bet it takes forever to dry." But nope, I have low porosity, so it starts to dry instantly, and when I use a spray bottle on my hair, the water sits on it until I have enough on and run it through with my hands. I always wondered why my hair dried so quickly, then my best friend became a hair stylist and told me why!

My hair isn't dense anymore (age and thyroid.) When I worked, I'd shower at 6, diffuse for a few minutes, not use any products and it the under layer would still be damp at 11:30.
