I just want to take phrases like "Is your hair 4a, 4b or 4c" and "define your curl pattern" and throw them in an incinerator with words like "swag" and "fleek" and turn it up to I-never-want-to-hear-this-ever-again heat levels.
So... I'm looking for new hair styles and stumble across a post about hair's porosity. WAIT A MINUTE? What is this science I've never heard of before?
While I could give two damns about how "curly" my hair is, how to "prevent shrinkage" or how to "keep my length," my biggest hair goal in life is to keep my situation consistently moisturized. Meanwhile, since I've moved to Pittsburgh, I've not been able to achieve the moisture I want because the air is SO dry. (Or maybe Chicago's air was just so humid). Nonetheless.
I did the hair porosity test and originally thought it was a bunch of crap (three strands stayed at the top and one dropped to the bottom). But moments later the one at the bottom rose again like Christ on the third day. I'm thinking it was just full of product and therefore deceptive at the first pass.
So I read how best to moisturize "low porosity" hair and guess what, it worked! After
Hair follicles on fleek! I'm excited.
