Thanks for any help you can give"
Advice: I completely understand your frustration and confusion. It seems as though your hair is appearing as Low Porosity hair yet, in fact, it has all the characteristics of High Porosity hair! Huh? Not to worry. There is a possible solution. I would assess your hair based on the actual behaviour of the hair itself. If you're noticing that your hair:
- Dries very fast
- Always feels dry
- Easily processes with chemical treatments
- Tends to feel rough due to raised cuticles
Here are a few articles I wrote regarding Hair Porosity:
