Sooo...I tried the strand test where you run your fingers along the hair and didnt really notice anything =/

I'm going to try the water test later today, but when I shower my hair gets soaking wet. When I get out I usually squeeze some of the water out of my hair and it just sticks to my head. Its a bit past my shoulders (growing out) but it will stick to my neck and shoulders when wet. I have to flip upside down to get it to come away from my head.

Can anyone help with my porosity?

When you ran your fingers along your hair, did you do it in both directions? Or just one? Did you have any product (conditioner, whatever) on your hair at the time?

If your hair easily tangles, even after detangling, that's a sign of highly porous hair.
