What is my hair porosity?by BleuenNoirPosted 2 months, 1 week ago
Hey, I'm having issues trying to find a leave-in product that works for me and I think figuring out my hair's porosity would help me a lot with my search. However, I'm really struggling to figure it out on my own.
-My hair is bleached (I used 30 volume developer) but it's been almost a year since I've bleached it.
-I've dyed it several times. The last time I dyed it was sometime in June. Usually, I use semi-permanent but I wanted to go back to my natural hair color (because the blue dye just wasn't looking right or taking well) so I got a permanent dye instead.
-My hair is pretty healthy for being processed but it is very dry and frizzy. I only wash it once a week.
-Either the product isn't hydrating enough or it's too heavy and just sits on my hair. I can't seem to find something in the middle.
-My hair drys lighting fast. It used to take forever to dry before I started bleaching and dying it.
-I naturally have 2b/2c waves.
-My scalp is a combination. I do have some dandruff (It's pretty minimal though) but it gets oily fairly quickly. It's also difficult for me to get volume in my roots.
I'm not sure what other information would help determine what porosity I have but feel free to ask any questions you have. Thanks for your help!

If you were asking about different types of soil would be able to answer.
My guess is porosity depends on the condition of your hair. If the plates on the hair shaft are fully open being hair is very porous, then color will not hold onto the hair. Better to have plates on the hair shaft closed or partially closed so color has something to hold onto.
Suggested remedy for dry hair is to let the hair air dry. This gives time for the hair to absorb moisture that was previously lost. Since mentioned hair now dries lightning fast. My guess is the hair s thirsty for moisture.
This is my suggestion and opinion.
