I just wanted to start to get to know you guys and hear from you about your personal tips regarding hair care and where exactly to start when I start growing out- I want to make sure to keep my hair as healthy as possible and I want to know what I'm doing when I start, so that I don't screw up somewhere along the way and mess up the work I've put in.
As we recognized before; One (1) guy's regiment of hair care might not be the way another guy cares for his hair. That being said; here is my hair care regiment:
I shampoo and condition my hair twice a week, on Sun. and on Wed. I use shampoos and conditioners that are sulfate free and/or enriched with biotin. In fact, I take a biotin supplement each day for the purpose of strengthening my hair and fostering hair growth. For shampoos I use "Everyone Nourish Shampoo" and "Mill Creek Botanicals Biotin Shampoo". For conditioners I use "Mill Creek Botanicals Biotin Conditioner" and "Marc Anthony Hydrating Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Sulfate Free Conditioner". I use one (1) set of shampoo/conditioner one (1) week and the other set the next week. I do this because it prevents build up of the same product in my hair and the variety is good for my hair. I let my hair dry naturally; I do not use a blow dryer. Upon coming out of the shower I comb my hair back with a wide toothed comb, detangling any tangles. Don't force the comb through a tangle. This will tear your hair and break it. Work tangles out gently with your fingers. After combing I brush my hair back. I tie my hair back into a simple pony tail. I use two (2) ties. The first I tie low at the back of my head. I use the second tie as far down on my pony tail as possible. In that way I can position two (2 chains from two (2) religious medals which I wear so that they catch the second tie and hold my pony tail down. Then I can put on my shirt and my pony tail is under the back of my collar and is secure under my shirt. In this way I look professional. If someone looks at me directly in my face they may not notice that I have a pony tail. If they look at me from the sde they may notice my pony tail, however, they will not know how long my hair is because it is under my shirt. At night, as I am praying I take my hair out of the pony tail and finger comb it, gently working out any tangles. I may comb my hair after finger combing it with my wide toothed comb and may brush it. If I feel the need to scratch my scalp I do so with my finger tips and not my finger nails. This kind of massage is good for my hair and scalp as it promotes blood circulation which feeds the cuticles of my hair which promotes hair growth.
I hope that this is helpful. I have more to say in another post.
Your long haired bro,
