What are signs of high porosity hair?

High porosity hair can display a number of signs, including:

  1. Rapid absorption of water: High porosity hair tends to absorb water quickly, often causing it to feel heavy and weighed down.

  2. Dryness: Although high porosity hair can absorb moisture quickly, it also tends to lose moisture rapidly, which can lead to dryness and brittleness.

  3. Frizziness: High porosity hair can be more prone to frizz, as the raised cuticles allow moisture to enter the hair shaft, causing it to expand and become frizzy.

  4. Tangling: High porosity hair can tangle and knot more easily than other types of hair, as the raised cuticles can snag and catch on each other.

  5. Difficulty holding styles: High porosity hair can be more difficult to style, as it may not hold styles well due to its tendency to lose moisture and become frizzy.

  6. Color fading quickly: High porosity hair can have difficulty retaining hair dye, as the raised cuticles can allow the color to escape more easily.

  7. Products being absorbed too quickly: High porosity hair can quickly absorb hair products, leading to buildup and weighed-down hair.

If you suspect that you have high porosity hair, it is important to take steps to care for your hair properly. This may include using hair products specifically formulated for high porosity hair, avoiding harsh hair treatments, using heat styling tools sparingly, and incorporating regular deep conditioning treatments into your hair care routine.
