Question Fine hair and low porosity

I know the float test isn't the best test for porosity but....
Wouldn't fine hair float regardless of type of porosity? (thinking: because it's lightweight and would float no matter what??)

Yes--I think my hair floated because it is fine and just didn't break the surface tension of the water.

There are fine hared people with very porous hair...


Think about it,a sponge can be very lightweight and would float for a while, but if you were to cut some holes into that same sponge and put it on water, it would sink quicker as the larger holes allow more water to get into it...

Porosity has more to do with an objects permeability, not it's weight or size...

That makes a lot of sense- thanks!
