Need help with hair type/porosity?

PatiencePatience Registered Users Posts: 7
this is my hair freshly out the shower with no product.
And the very front of my hair is frizzy and shows no pattern because of heat damage. However the rest of my hair has been completely heat free since becoming natural.

I can't tell if it's thick or thin... Or even what hair type it is. :sad1:

    Some sections you have 4B and some you have 4C. In order to figure out your porosity, take a clean strand of your hair (that has shedded after you’ve washed it and it has air dried), and place it in water. If it floats on the top, you have low porosity. If it stays in the middle, you have medium porosity. If it floats to the bottom, you have high porosity. If you have low porosity hair, it is best to use the LCO method with protein free products (Shea moisture has a protein free line) or LottaBody. If you have high porosity hair, use the LOC method with butters like shea butter or fro butter emu oil.

    I'm not good at determining curl type, but I can help determine your porosity levels!

    Two questions:
    Does your hair get wet easily?
    How long does it take to air dry? 
    2c/3a | low porosity | fine/medium | low/medium density| protein,coconut, and green tea sensitive | Modified CGM
