Porosity is an important factor when finding the right moisturizing routine.

   By taking a clean strand of hair, placing it in a container filled with room temperature water and observing whether the hair sinks, floats or stays in the middle, will determine if your hair cuticles are open or closed.

   If your hair sinks, then the porosity is high and this means that your hair soaks up moisture like a sponge

( thicker creams work great for your hair).

   If your hair floats the cuticles are closed and resist letting moisture in.( Light moisturizers and lotions work best for your hair.)

   If your hair stays in the middle you have normal porosity and your hair receives and locks in moisture well.

   Do the test and that will help in knowing how to moisturize your hair and the best products to use.
