What is porosity in simple terms? Everything online confuses me!
In simple terms, porosity is how well your hair absorbs water and other forms of moisture (pretty much any molecule). When you have low porosity hair, your cuticle is tighter and your hair may have difficulty getting wet. On the contrary, high porosity hair has a more raised cuticle and has difficulty staying moisturized. For more information on porosity, check out this post from Hey Fran Hey on Transitioning Movement.
Carol’s Daughter knows that transitioning isn’t easy—that’s why the brand has founded TransitioningMovement.com, a site dedicated to providing the resources that women need to embrace their natural hair. This definitive online source on how to transition was founded on the idea that every woman should celebrate her own unique beauty. As women transition from relaxed to natural hair with protective styles, the big chop or long or curly grow-outs, we aim to support them as they brave the change with fun, informative and helpful features. Let’s get back to the basics of natural beauty.
