Hair Porosity test must be done on clean hair so the next time you wash your hair (not co-wash) , look for shed hair not the broken hair . When your hair is dry drop it into a glass of water . If your hair is low porosity it will stay at the top of the water for a long time it will float . Most low porosity hair or normally virgin hair in top condition .
Natural/medium porosity hair float somewhere in the middle . This is normally healthy hair that can easily accept and retain moisture .
If your hair starts to sink right away then its high porosity hair . High porous hair will sink very fast because its normally very damage and all the cuticles are open . High porous hair take in moisture easily and lose it just as fast . So this hair porosity test should determine your hair porosity .
