How to know your hair’s porosity level

There are different hair porosity tests, but I prefer this (Because it’s super easy; not that I’m lazy or something though)

What you need:
Hair strands: Front, middle and back hair (They are sometimes not the same)
Stop Watch

Fill glass  with water and let it sit without disturbance. Put strands in water (Being careful enough to not move the water)
Check hair after 5 minutes

Hair still floating on the water – Semi Porosity
Hair in the water – Normal Porosity
Hair at the bottom of the glass – High Porosity
