Some frequent questions asked of us are regarding porosity and how Curl Definition products work on low or high porosity hair; mainly low porosity. This is because of the recent understanding in the community that low porosity hair can seem resistant to moisture and product absorption due to the tightness of the hair’s cuticle layers (the outer protective layer of the hair).
Porosity levels range from:
- High Porosity, more porous (easily allows water in and out)
- Mid Porosity
- Low Porosity, least porous (resistant to allowing water in and out)
