How To Determine Your Hair's Porosity
Looking for products for your natural hair? One of the best ways to choose products and hair care grooming tools is by knowing the porosity level of your hair. There are three levels of porosity:
It’s easy to find out the porosity level of your hair. First, fill a clear glass with clean water. Next, pluck a few strands – no more than one or two strands, please – of clean, product-free hair from your lovely tresses. Finally, drop the hair into the glass and pay attention. If the hair floats, it has low porosity. If it falls to the middle of the glass, it has normal porosity. If it sinks all the way to the bottom, it has high porosity.
At Tropic Curls, we have the products you need to get the healthy head of hair you deserve. You’ll enjoy the natural hair journey more when you understand the texture, elasticity, moisture content, and porosity of your locks, though. Take a few minutes after your next shampoo to test the porous level of your hair. Knowing your hair’s porosity level will help you make smart product and tool choices and better care for your hair.
