WHAT IS "HAIR POROSITY" AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT ?
This is the most important information you will read! Knowing your hair porosity will save you a lot of time, money and headache, because not all products work the same on all hair porosities. Before purchasing any OrganiGrowHairCo Products you MUST learn your correct hair porosity. Hair porosity is simply the ability for your hair to absorb and retain moisture. This is important because knowing your porosity will help you determine the best ways to maintain, style, hydrate, deep condition and take care of your hair. Hair Porosity is broken down into three categories, Low, Medium (or normal) and High.
HOW DO I DETERMINE MY HAIR POROSITY ?
There are several ways to determine your hair porosity. You can take the hair porosity strand test by simply dropping a single clean non conditioned strand into room temperature glass or water. After 15 minutes, if the strand floats, your hair may be low porosity. If the strand sinks just beneath the surface or in the middle you may have medium porosity hair. If the strand sinks all the way to the bottom you may have high porosity hair. You can also do the spray bottle test. Take room temperature water and mist it over your head. If the droplets sit on top of your hair, you most likely have low porosity hair. If the droplets easily absorb into your strands you are most likely a high porosity head. If the droplets sat on your hair and after a few minutes absorbed into your hair you are more than likely medium porosity.
