Hair Porosity!!
Hey Everyone, im sort of a rookie to Naturally i cant even begin to tell you just how long it took for me to figure out how to post a new thread! >.< But anyways... I Decided to do the porosity test to find out what kind of porosity my hair had.... I did both tests described in the Hair Types column on this website under Porosity... I smoothed my hair strand upward and felt some bumps, but when i put a strand in water, it floated on the top.. Do i have High porosity or Low porosity?? Im super Confused! :sad2:

This article gives you other characteristics of high, normal, and low porosity hair. It will help you better determine your hair's porosity.

The float test can be unreliable. I've seen instances where someone's hair floated, but they later found out it was actually normal or even low porosity. Instead, I would look at the strand test and how your hair usually behaves. The link Ml001posted has good info. If you want a definitive answer, you can also order a hair analysis from here.
