Does it matter when you perform this test? Freshly washed hair ( no product) or with product in hair?

Thanks !

Best results from freshly washed, no product hair; and use room temp water.

remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
What is the test?? I need to do this..

Float test is notoriously unreliable. I wouldn't waste the time. Best thing is to run fingers from tip to root. If it's smooth and squeaks, it low porosity. If it's bumpy, it's high porosity. If it's in between, it's normal.

Drying time is also a good indicator of porosity. My productless hair used to take about six hours to dry after towel drying and diffusing for a bit. I don't have a lot of hair, so that's a fairly long time.

Thank you for breaking it down, I didn't know the differences
