Congratulations! That's wonderful and must be quite comforting to hear.
I wish I had a hairdresser I could talk to about this stuff. I had one in California but I've only been to her once before I moved to New York. The one I have now is the best I've had in terms of keeping my commitment to growing long hair--he never uses a razor, never slices my hair, and only takes off as much as I ask him to. However, I don't really talk to him about unconventional haircare--CWC, cone free, oiling... etc.
Then again, it never really comes up. It's a very straightforward, business-like relationship.
