What is Low Porosity hair?
You can do this simple test at home to find out if your hair is low porosity.
- What you will need: A clear/transparent glass, 250ml of water, and a strand of your hair.
- Add water to the clear glass of water and drop your DRY strand of hair into the clear glass of water.
- If the strand of hair floats on water, then you have LOW POROSITY HAIR.
I chose to do an article on Low porosity hair products, because, like I said earlier, I mainly write from personal experience. And I happen to have Low Porosity hair. As soon as I gather enough information on other types like, medium porosity hair and high porosity hair be sure that I will share with you guys. If your hair does not float –worry not. For more detail, you can read the hair porosity article here http://kenyankinks.com/2015/09/14/hair-porosity/ .
