Default deciphering Hairdresser talk, please help!

Hello all!
I am new to cg, just 2 weeks in, and this is my first post although I've been reading posts for a few weeks. I'm having a hard time classifying my hair, so I asked my hairdresser at my appointment this week. She said I had medium thickness, but lots of it, my cortex was hollow and my cuticle is tightly closed. Could someone translate this into CG speak for me? Also, what does this mean for the best treatments for my hair?? Thanks so much.

Sounds like medium texture, low porosity. These links will help you choose products/ingredients that will most likely work for you:
