Morning BBB brushing of 50 to 60 strokes with head inverted a la Dr. George Michael (scroll to posts 21-26)
CWC twice per week: Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner on length, diluted Hairprint shampoo, rinse, then Hairprint conditioner, rinse, then Paul Mitchell Detangler, rinse, and finish with cool water rinse
Tools and techniques:
Mason Pearson rake comb, T-shirt for hair towel, silk pillow case
air drying
some oiling with EVCO or my new sample of Argan oil

Way back in April 2007, I found the Loom and started measuring my hair (17.5 inches). Since then, I have grown my hair (but not longer than 23 inches) and cut it off (from 16 to 17.5 inches) many times because I struggled with health-related hair thinning and loss for many years due to autoimmune thyroid disease. I am thankful to God that my hair is much better now, and coloring it with Hairprint gives it nice texture and shine.
