What is Hair Porosity?

HIGH po.ros.i.ty:

Hair cuticles are prone to damage, breakage and gaps that allow moisture to flow through the hair structure without retention. Hair looks frazzled, and feels dry and coarse.

LOW po.ros.i.ty:

Hair cuticles lay flat and tight around the cortex, resisting moisture and conditioning oils. Product builds up easily, making protein-sensitive hair feel dry and brittle.



Other factors such as environment, wash cycle and styling products may temporarily affect your porosity. Results may vary.
