What's hair porosity and how do i figure out mine? Hair porosity basically refers to how porous your hair is.
Low porosity hair has cuticles that are tightly closed and flat. Its harder to get moisture in but once its in it takes a while for it to escape. My hair is low porosity, it takes forever for my hair to feel wet when I'm washing it.
High porosity hair is usually damaged hair but can also be genetic. The cuticles easily let moisture and easily lose moisture as well.
How do I determine hair porosity?Get a cup of water and place a mostly clean strand of hair in the water.
If your hair floats at the surface for minutes your hair is low porosity and is having a hard time absorbing the water.
If your hair sinks quickly or within a few minutes your hair is highly porous and is quickly absorbing the water.
If your hair stays around the middle but doesn't completely sink your hair is considered normal porosity and is holding onto a proper amount of moisture.
