Yay hair-growing mode! lol Of course, the longer it gets, the more shampoo it requires... but that's okay!

Just while we're on this topic: numerous stylists have informed me that Pantene Pro-V is a terrible product for your hair. Not only does the waxy formula cause breakage, the wax also clogs your follicles, which can cause baldness! Shocked

(I've actually considered using it on my legs if this is the case...)

PCP, you're a card.

Tetris, that was your dub on the last forum too.

Here's a hint for people concerned about shampoo - the natural oils in your hair only go down to your shoulders, then it stops going down your hair. So you only have to use shampoo on the top half of your hair. Really, putting shampoo on the bottom half directly is actually bad for your hair; it's stripping away oils that won't get replenished naturally. once you've lathered the top, let it rinse through to your end, but don't really work it in. That will save on shampoo.

And the opposite for conditioner - you need to put oils in your ends artificially since your scalp's not handling it anymore, so if your hair is midback (which is actually at about the bottom of your shoulder blades) or longer, get a specifically conditioning brand or leave-in conditioner. If your hair tends to be dry, deep-condition once a week, and make sure you have some sort of product to keep your ends smooth. "Garnier Fructis Style Smoothing Milk: Strong" is what I use, and it works really well. For shampoo and conditioner I usually use Garnier Fructis frizz control stuff, but they don't sell it in Israel, so I've been using Herbal Essences. Which doesn't hurt, but it's not being any specific help, either.

My hair takes three days to dry in a braid. And no, I can't let it dry loose, because for all that I've got a LOT of hair, each one is very thin, and breaks really easily on its own. And when it dries loose, each hair dries individually. So I've taken to braiding it when wet, so it'll dry in clumps. Safety in numbers, you know. However, when it is down, I know it only takes a day and a half to dry. Impossible to work with, but dry.

I'm just going to throw this out there - is there any type of hair spray or styling creme that does not make your hair feel like paper maché?

But... but... but did we even make an introduction on the last forum? Let alone post in the Dubbing thread...

Sorry, off topic. We'll shut up now.

I'm curious, has anyone donated hairs to Locks of Love or other organizations?

I'm thinking of donating my hair someday.

I donated the first time, this time I'm doing it for myself only, so I'm not planning on donating it at a specific time. If I ever cut it off, it will of course be donated, but I'm not planning on it.

I'm not too fond of Locks of Love. They make the recipients pay for the wigs they make; not exactly something I'm fond of. I don't mind paying to get it chopped off and sent in, but if I'd rather the recipient get it for free no matter what I'd have to pay.

Instead, I went to the Aveda Institute; they train young professionals in cosmetology and esthiology. I really do like the idea that when I get my hair cut, I'm helping somebody learn and train for the career they're likely to be doing the rest of their lives. I know that I personally appreciate patients that come into a student-run pharmacy.

Me, next time I cut it it'll go to a wig-maker. One who makes high-quality wigs for religious Jewish women who can't afford them otherwise. I know of two, there's probably more. It's been mentioned before, but I"ll restate it now so people don't get confused - religious Jewish women cover their hair after marriage.

Huh, I've studied a few religions but never come across that, mind if I ask why Asa?
