Been doing a lot of pondering on this and I'm starting to wonder. I've always thought I was high porosity but now I'm questioning this. I am 4a relaxed thin haired woman and have had issues with dry hair on and off. I did the hair in the glass water test and my hair went straight to the bottom so I was like.......okay, I'm high. But as I've been pondering this weekend about the whole thing here is what makes me question whether I'm high po: ~Dry hair that doesn't absorb conditioners unless I put some serious heat to it. ~With no heat, conditioners just sit on top of my head. ~My hair is relaxer resistant. To acheive the straightness, I have to use a flat iron. I've used Design Essentials and Mizani Butter Blends Medium. Currently use Mizani BB. ~My hair has always absorbed conditioners better after relaxing. Could it be the alkaline levels in relaxers cause my cuticles to open and absorb conditioners like it should? ~And lastly, again my hair just loves heat for some odd reason. It behaves with heat. Funny thing is of all the years of going to African American salons and now doing Dominican salons, my hair seems healthier despite all that heat. Now here is another reason why I am confused: I use Roux Porosity control and it works but I thought it was for high po? Maybe it balances things out?? My hair does well with protein which from my understanding, low po hair doesn't like protein. And then of course, I am relaxed. I thought relaxed hair is generally high po anyway? I have read where some people can fall in between so maybe I am one of them??? Any sistas out there can relate?
