    I know for a fact that my hair is very healthy with low porosity. Because, I don't get any split ends or damage hairs at all. Even though I chemically treat it. I also keep it up with oil treatments and deep conditioning, and protein treatments.

    I suspect mine is on the lower side of normal. oil and products don't make much difference, very few splits ect. The drying is strange, the clumps of waves take longer and if it's up in any way will still be damp 24 hours later, but if it's down to dry it's done in a couple of hours. Water doesn't seam to penitrate very easily, but the ends don't get excessively dry either. If a run my fingers up the hair shaft the only difference from down is a slight squeaky noise. It makes hair care cheaper though - most products make very little difference so there no point it buying them!

    Might we agree that relative to its natural predisposition, hair becomes less porous as it becomes healthier?

    In the Curly-Girl-method community it's often reported that after a while the hair doesn't quite need the same amount of products as before to stay moisturized.

    I'd be more comfortable reversing it. Damaging hair makes it more porous.
