Symptoms of porous hair is dry no matter how much you deep condition or moisturize. Porous hair has no elasticity, & won't hold a curl...
To check if hair is porous ... Take a strand of your hair and place it in a sink full of water...Healthy hair will float..If the hair sinks to the bottom the hair is porous...
Porosity is related to the condition of your cuticle layer. Porous hair has a raised cuticle layer that easily absorbs water and is quick to lose moisture as well.
Low porosity is when the cuticle of the hair shaft is compact and does not allow moisture to enter or leave the hair shaft..
Its very hard to process and extremely resistant to chemical services...
In this case I would suggest using a porosity conditioner a few days before relaxer/color so that your relaxer or color takes better
Overly Porous hair is the result of damage...Either, chemical, heat damage, chlorine, and sun damage.
3. Acidic Shampoo and Conditioners that are designed for overly porous hair ( Roux Porosity Control Step 1 ph 4.5 Corrector and Conditioner)
