Porosity is the rate which hair absorbs liquid & holds it. A liquid such as water is the main hydrating agent that penetrates down to the cortex plumping and softens the hair.
Tightly closed cuticles scales (non-porous) lay flat protecting the cortical fibres to prevent protein loss. Healthy hair that is in good condition is non-porous. However, this makes it difficult for water & other ingredients to absorb immediately into the hair shaft. Various raw ingredients can build up easily onto the outer layer of the hair strands, further preventing water from entering. As a result, this causes brittle dry & dull hair. Many may refer this as "Low Porosity.”
