Hair porosity is key to healthy natural hair care. In this post, we’ll talk high porosity and low porosity, as well as how to test and care for your type!
The first thing people often look up when they go natural is curl pattern, thinking that’s the key to healthy hair. We’ve all seen the charts.

Are these pencil-width?”, all the while wanting to rip the hair from our head.
