What is Hair Porosity

Posted on January 14 2015


Hair Porosity

Hair porosity refers to the hair’s ability to absorb and hold in moisture adequately. The outer layer of the hair, called the cuticle, plays the role of a sponge. However, hair porosity should be balanced.

If the cuticle absorbs too much moisture or unable to retain it then this leads to high porosity, which in turn means damaged hair with absence of lustre or shine, and is prone to tangling. High porosity is usually caused due to raised cuticles. In the case of low porosity of hair, the cuticle is extremely compact and is not able to absorb moisture, though it may have good retaining quality. Low porosity may be a better condition than high porosity but it lacks elasticity and lies flat. The best type of hair is that which has normal or average porosity, where the cuticles are compact but not overly so, thereby both absorbing and holding in moisture adequately. This hair type is healthy, bouncy as well as elastic in nature.
