Hello! Hello! Hello!
For a natural, the most asked question one gets is, “What is your hair type?” And when I am asked, I usually give a vague answer of type 4 hair. I never pay much attention to hair typing in terms of 3c or 4a. because this takes the focus away from healthy hair. Hair typing is just a guide to give you an idea of what products will work on your hair. What you should be concerned about is the hair quality.
Hair quality also known as typing but more in-depth focusing on; porosity, hair width, hair density and hair thickness.
Today, we’ll talk about hair porosity.
Hair porosity is the ability for your hair to absorb and maintain moisture. Moisturised hair is the first step to healthy hair.
There are three levels of porosity;
- Low Porosity.
- Medium/Normal Porosity.
- High Porosity.
Once you know your hairs porosity you are able to take care of it accordingly and know what to do and what not to do.
In the video, I show you how to test the porosity and what each porosity means and how to manage it.
I hope the post is helpful.
