hmmm.....I just did the test and I can't tell if I am normal or low porosity. I'm not sure if my hair repels products or not lol how do you think I can tell??

I know my hair takes a long time to dry, even with it short and thinned out.

it feels pretty smooth and it kinda squeaks going up lol

3A curls, fine texture, thin (it's always been that way). A few inches past shoulder length and would like it to grow very long.
