The test said my hair is high porosity.Could it have been dead hair?

My hair does absorb heavy butters easily but oils drown it. High porosity hair is considered damaged but my hair seems healthy.

Quick note: hair is, technically, dead. High porosity hair does not equal damaged hair, if your hair is naturally like that. High porosity hair can be considered "damage" if it is the result of something you have done to your hair...bleach, relaxer, straighten, etc. I would suggest conducting a few different types of porosity tests before declaring what you are. Some tests, like the water in the cup test, are not accurate.
