Normal Porosity acting more like High porosity?
 
My hair analysis came back saying I had normal porosity but the more I treat it as if it is Highly porous, the better my hair behaves.

Why? any ideas?

That is interesting! I'm curious to the reason as well.

my speculation is that, my hair, left on its own, would become very porous, very quickly. Since I had been treating my hair to twice weekly heavy protein paks for almost a year at the time of my hair analysis, probably it came back as 'normal' purely because I had been treating this way. I think the long-term PT have normalized my hair but if I were to stop doing the frequent PT's, my hair would naturally be very higly porous...

that's my best guess anyway, after thinking about it a bit.

I had the same thing happen. My analysis says I have normal porosity but my hair behaves as if I have high porosity. And I don't use protein treatments much so that can't be the reason the analysis came back as normal. Not sure what the discrep is.

Could It Be?...

Another beautician examined my hair and said that my hair is "normal porosity, fine, and thick (a lot of fine hair)." She said that even when my hair completely dry, I would know if it was highly porous: it would feel mushy. My hair gets tangled easily, but thinking about it, it's because I have "a lot" of fine hair. I do benefit from protein treatments, but without them my hair is highly porous. Also, when my hair is stripped of oils (added and the sebum), it is still smooth when I slide my thumb and forefinger up shedded strands, and it floats for days. Also, water at first goes straight through my hair before it gets completely soaked, about 20 seconds.
