I detangle every time I wash which is usually every 3-4 days. I work out a lot so if I want presentable looking hair I have to wash more often, but I really don't like to because I feel like too much hair is coming out.

Teri Laflesh's book "Curly Like Me" sits on my desk and everytime I get frustrated and an impulse tells me to shave my head, I look at it in hopes that one day my hair will graze the top of my butt.
