The float test is pretty inaccurate. Take a strand of hair & run your fingers from tip to root. If u feel bumps, chances are its porous. If your hair gets wet quickly & dries quickly, it's likely porous. If it seems to take some effort to get it soaking wet & it takes a long time to dry, that signals low porosity. LP hair is difficult to moisturize properly. HP hair can generally benefit from protein to repair the holes in the cuticle.
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.
