    Default What's something you recently learned about your own hair?

    I, like many, have learned so much about hair since joining this forum.
    And seeing people who have been here for years, it seems like there's always something new. I'd love to hear what things people have picked up on, within the past, say, six months?
    Just to list a couple things I've learned since joining this forum:
    My hair color is ash brown (never knew what to call it before!)
    My hair loves the Garnier Treats line, and tangles much much less when I use it
    2 drops of hair oil may not look like much, but a little goes a long way!

    I've always been afriad of sleeping in a braid because I don't like my hair when its creaseed, but I've discovered that my hair is so stubbornly straight, that by 9:00 am my hair is back to straight and the awful creases are gone

    Finger detangling is actually possible, and may even be better for my hair than the tangle teezer.

    You got this, blackgothicdoll! I know I have a different hair texture, but I’ve been fingercombing ONLY for 3 years now. The only things different are how long it takes, and how much more gentle it is. Good luck!

    For me, the thing I’ve learned recently is honing in on exactly how much protein my hair likes. It definitely needs protein regularly to be in its best condition, but every 2-3 washes is the sweet spot, not every single time.

    I’ve learned that my hair can’t really go more than 5 days without washing. That’s okay with me because I love showering

    My hair doesn't tangle or get knotty. I always thought it did but with limited heat, a Tangle Teezer, and oil, I can easily not brush when wet or dry and it's still not knotty plus a decent conditioner, it's a long time since I actually remember having a tangle.

    Hmm, in the last 6 months ...

    My hair really truly is happiest with its HG conditioner, and cetrimonium chloride does nothing for it (hat-tip to AutobotsAttack for that revelation! I would never have twigged myself).

    A thorough combing or brushing in the first couple of days after washing makes it unhappy, probably because it's so completely disturbing what little texture and the clumps and it wants to go back to that even while I'm still combing/brushing. I think I instinctively sort of knew already but when I had to brush it out for my annual trim, it was confirmed.
    Growing back to calf with hopefully some semblance of a hemline.
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    Well, not recently, but - my hair does best when kept confined and protected from basically everything.

    It's medium brown and not dark brown like I always thought it was! What.

    I learned a few things since joining LHC. Here they are in no particular order:

    My hair strongly dislikes coconut oil it makes it crunchy even when it''s just used as a pre-wash.

    An incredible amount of DBFs cat's hair gets intertwined with mine. My hair must be brushed regularly to remove it.

    My hair is never as pretty as when I leave butter on prior to washing.
