Kathymack... it makes sense what you're saying about porosity. I always thought I was high porosity because my hair liked protein. (I can't really tell by the slip and slide test, sometimes I think I feel bumps but they may just be kinks in my hair. My hair floated in the water test but I know that test can be unreliable.) Anyway, now I'm thinking it's actually low or normal... it seems to fit better with the other descriptions.
fine - low porosity - medium density - normal elasticity
