WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF HAIR POROSITY?
Hair porosity is the hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture. There are three porosity types: low, medium and high.
Low porosity hair – the hair is healthy and strong. The cuticles in the hair structure are tightly arranged and therefore the cuticles are tight and resistant to the hairdressing treatments. The hair does not absorb water quickly.
High porosity hair – unfortunately, this hair type is not very healthy in its appearance. The hair is dry, damaged and the hair scales are uneven. The hair also has a tendency to frizz under unfavorable weather conditions. How to determine high porosity hair? There are a few symptoms of high porosity hair: it dries out very quickly after washing and absorbs water or any cosmetics very fast. The positive aspect of it is that the hair is easy to style. It is also worth mentioning, that curly hair is a very demanding type of hair and usually by its nature has high porosity.
Medium porosity hair – it is a mixture of low and high porosity hair. It happens very often that previously healthy hair becomes highly porous as a result of regular hairdressing treatments or frequent use of a hair curler, straightener or hair dryer.
