What is hair porosity ?

Let’s talk about hair porosity…

Knowing the porosity of your hair helps you decide on what hair products best suit your hair to keep it healthy.

There are three types in general:

Low porosity- means the structure of your hair doesn't easily allow moisture to be absorbed into your hair shaft.

Medium porosity- Sometimes known as normal porosity hair, it is one of the easier types to maintain and care for.

High porosity- means that water, oils, and other types of products can be easily absorbed by your hair.
