    I could list so many things here but it depends on whose opinion wrong is. According to the industry everything everyone does here is wrong. I am of the opinion nothing works for everyone so you have to do what works for you. If that's sulfates great. If its conditioner then great. Btw when my Paul Mitchell trainer mentioned Co at my last training, saying he didn't know people were doing that I knew it was getting more exposure. All in all its what does your hair need.

    Mrs.Q, It was the same way for me. Missing the feeling I got when brushing my hair was one of the main reasons why I did away with my wide tooth comb and went back to ball tipped bristle brush.

    I can see why people would do that.

    I still don't like the ball tips though - my hair gets caught in them and rips out. Instead, I use a denman brush like this:

    which gives the same feeling without the hair-getting-caught problem that I have found to be pretty much unavoidable.

    I can't agree with this more! Gosh I love my (well, it's my husband's really) denman brush.

    I also have to wash often because I get these pimply sores on my scalp if I go too long without washing. Not a lot of them, but one or two is enough!

    Is CO washing a problem for you? (or anyone out there who'd like to speak up ) I'm just wondering because if CO is supposed to be gentler, can I use it more often without damaging my hair?

    I wash everyday but don't consider it a sin anymore because my scalp would be worse if I changed that (have tried many times).

    I think about diffusing it more often all the time, my sin in this case is that I don't do it! Need to get off my lazy bum and make some pretty spirals...I guess this could be read as too much neglect/not caring about hair enough to make something special once in a while...this IS a sin!

    That's interesting because your hair type is like mine - and yours is gorgeous! If I don't detangle my wet hair, I'd break it all off trying to detangle it later.

    Lots of wrongdoings here...

    Bonkers, you can safely CO about as often as you like. In fact some people add extra CO washes, even if their scalp isn't greasy yet, because it adds moisture to their length.

    That may be true for you, but I've found out that when I find the right ball tipped brush it doesn't pull my hair out as long as I'm careful with it and detangle if I encounter any tangles. The other side of brushes is that from a Russian TV show on health and medical issues I've learned that ball tips are kinder to your scalp as TT and other brushes similar to it (the brush you linked to has bristles that look similar to denman) as sharp or uncovered brisltes can really scratch your scalp which isn't good for hair. About a week ago when I was at TJ Maxx, the brush I ended up getting is a non-cusion brush that has balls covering the tips of the bristles (that even when trying really hard I couldn't pull off) with widely-spaced bristles. I've been using it ever since I got it and so far it's been gliding through my thick hair as well or better than the wide tooth comb I used before (when I brush I tend to detangle if I encounter any tangles, through this site and LHC learned not to be ripping through the tangles).

    Yes. I've tried CO for about 10 months. But I encourage anyone to try it.
