Thanks for sharing! I'm pretty sure I already know but I'm gonna do these tests anyway for fun. I'm gonna leave a glass of water with a hair in it on the kitchen counter and freak some members of my family out :grnbiggri

I'm pretty sure home porosity tests have been debunked. E.g. here (http://www.thenaturalhavenbloom.com/2013/01/junk-science-hair-porosity-tests-float.html).

The DIY porosity tests are not well thought of by those with a science background.
