protein, moisture and porosity??

curlyaniecurlyanie Posts: 111Registered Users
can anyone lead me to a thread that can tell me how i would know when to put more or less protein and moisture in my hair?...i know i've read something like that a few months ago, i guess, something to do with elasticity, breakage and things to that effect...
if not, maybe you can just tell me if you know :D i tested my hair when i washed this morning, it was stretchy but then broke when i put a little more pressure on it. i may have to test again though, coz i think i really just pulled it so hard :))
afterwards, i put a strand in the water and it floated, what does that mean? i believe you can tell if its porous that way ...i thought i had the guide to these things on my computer, but as it turns out i dont :))...so, anyone? TIA!!
