Funny...I just responded to someone else in a very similar fashion. The stress my hair had caused me for the first 43 years of my life was probably more detrimental to my health than the BKT ever could be! I'm not even kidding about that!
BTW, AD, I am LOVING L'oreal EverPure Moisture Conditioner. OMG, I love the way it smells in my hair, and I love my hair without all the cones of HEHH. It has also since stopped shedding so heavily, so I've introduced the V05 back as my cowash. I think I was just in some kind of heavy shedding cycle or something. I've decided to cut back on the root applications, too. Makes my roots too straight, and I have no volume. I need my root volume.
