I hopped out of the shower to get ready to deep conditioner and for a few seconds I considered skipping it because my hair felt fluffy and soft. Old habits die hard, especially habits I'm not willing to break, so I applied my deep conditioner.
As much as I love my roller sets, I missed my fluffy air dried hair tons! I was literally counting down until wash day until the fluffy mass was back. This wash day went well, but my favorite part? The very small amount of hair I loss while detangling. I'm 7 weeks post and in comparison to the amount of hair I have on my head, having this wispy tuff of hair is great. I detangled using a "two-comb method," first detangling with a larger wide-tooth comb (my Hercules Sagemann HS5580) and then scaling back to smaller, but still wide-toothed, comb (Hercules Sagemann HS1975). Admittedly I don't always use two comb, but I'm 7 weeks post and my curls are popping up so I have to really take the time to work out tangles as best (and as gentle) as possible to avoid matting.
