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.
