As you can see by the product names, these are geared toward either low or high porosity hair. So when it comes to hair porosity and picking the "right" products, does it matter? In my opinion, it depends. If your hair is truly low porosity and hates any inkling of protein then, yes, porosity likely does matter. If you hair is truly highly porous, and needs certain ingredients or a certain method to keep the moisture in then, yes, porosity does matter. I'm somewhere in between. Prior to coloring, my hair was low porosity through and through, but since coloring my hair is kind of stuck in between. You see, my ends have been bleached (this process opens the cuticle thereby increasing porosity) so I would consider them to be medium-high porosity while my roots (uncolored part of my hair) are still "virgin" so at this point my hair could go either way.
