. While messing with your hair(with your hands) is okay once it is dry, brushing it at any time can really mess it up. Some people here prefer to use a wide toothed comb in the shower when it is soaking wet and has a lot of conditioner on it. I don't use a brush or comb, though.
3c all the way! CG. Just started a new fotki album if you wanna see.
Favorite Cheapo routine: Sprite brand shower filter($40 lasts 3 months, then $29 for 4 refill filters), Trader Joe Refreshing Condish($3), Devacurl Nopoo occasionally($12 i think)
