    Hello, I’m new to the world of hair care, decided to start my hair journey. I did the porosity test but I’m confused as my strands sank then floated a minute after does this mean I’m high porosity or low?

    Due to the fact that the majority of African-Americans have multi DNA we have so many different types of hair in our heads we go from non poros to high porosity on one head of hair so the treatment can be tricky. The best thing that I have learned the more natural and milder the ingredients in the product the better. To harsh is too bad. I have been natural for over 45 years and love it! At sixty will a full head of hair no bald spots!
