Default Does this tell me anything about my hair?

When I pull my finger down a strand of hair and it is squeaky, does that mean anything???

Wavy wonder, I was hoping that it might be explained in Tiffany's blog post about porosity, but it isn't. Several commenters have posed the same question to that blog post, so hopefully, she will answer it soon....

Tiffany says: "When your hair is totally cleansed of not only dirt, but oil as well, there is nothing between you and your hair shaft when you run your fingers down it. The friction caused because there is no longer any buffer between finger and hair shaft causes the hair strand to "squeak." Not a good thing: yes, the hair is clean, but there is no lubrication or moisture in the strand either."

interesting... but i wonder if this is accurate to all hair... if so, my hair is in A LOT of trouble because it squeaks maybe 90% of the time, whether clean or dirty, and i always have some kind of product in it. i have really thick hair, and my strands are really thick and strong and of lower porosity. i wonder if that makes a difference.

Yes I know, My friend left a strand of her long hair at my house that I found, she was shedding because of spring time, when I examined it I stumbled upon noticing that it squeaked in one direction and not in the other.
