    Okay, that's kind of what I figured. Thanks so much!

    I'm planning to oil tonight but I just came back from a bike ride that resulted in a really really sweaty head. My thought is... head sweat has a lot of sebum (right?) and sebum is great for your hair.

    So, basically I'm curious if my conditioning treatment would be more effective if I washed my hair before or not. I personally feel like I should just leave my natural sebum in while I do my normal treatment and that washing it out prior would just sort of defeat the purpose.
    Sweat is not sebum so it should make no difference anyway

    O.K so I don't know of this one has been asked, for those of you who wear your hair up in a protective style everyday, does your neck get cold? . I wear my hair up a lot in the summer because it's so hot and I sweat but in the winter less so.

    Nah, my neck doesn't get cold unless I'm outside during winter And when I do get cold when inside, it's easier to wear scarves and/or shirt with high collar when my hair is up and out of the way.

    Yes. Particularly the part of my neck behind and just below my ears. I never realized how much I usually kept that area covered when it was cooler and my hair was down. I wear a neckwarmer in the winter, or turtleneck shirts, or decorative scarves that also have some warmth to them, but it's not quite the same. It's worth it to me so I put up with it.

    Not generally, but if I'm outside during the winter I can easily wear a scarf.

    Yes!! My neck becomes very cold! And my ears. I started wearing more scarfs, turtle necks, and beanies now that I'm wearing more protective hairstyles.

    Yes but I've always worn my hair up so I guess I naturally compensated with my clothing choices. Rollneck tops, cardigans with collars on, and then gilets/body warmers that zip right up to over my chin, [warm] scarves, and of course coats with collars that do right up. (Usually every single one of those if I go out in winter, plus a couple of thermal layers - I wear 6 or 7 layers to leave the house in an average winter, 8+ if it's colder than usual!) I dress according to the weather mostly, not according to which season it's supposed to be, so my thicker cardigans with collars I'll wear all year round on chillier days, and I'll happily wear a rollneck top in, say, June if it's still a bit cold.

    Initially when I started wearing my hair up often, it was fall/winter and I really started noticing that my ears felt cold which had never been an issue before, although I think I eventually got used to it. I don't remember noticing my neck feeling cold as much, maybe because usually I'd be wearing a coat or jacket outdoors which provides some insulation for the neck.

    This is mostly an out of curiosity question. What happens if you use curly hair shampoo on straight hair?

    I've been contemplating switching up the shampoo I use and wondered what might happen if I tried using curly hair shampoo. Of course I don't expect that it would make my hair turn curly, but might there be any noticeable impact of some kind?
