So happy to find this thread, I had the same thought. All that rubbing on the roots of hairs, I've always wondered if you could be pulling hairs out by the roots, or breaking them close to the roots. Also, I know for a fact taht my scalp is irritated right now by over-scrubbing and massaging. so I really could use some advice/tips on how to scrub/rub/massage, in which direction, how long, how hard, how to know you've gotten every area. I need help!! Do you all continue rubbing when rinsing, and in which area, do you actually move the fingers around on the scalp and move all those roots in circles? I feel your pain, I"m suffering and I want to continue CG, but need help as I'm over-doing it trying to clean!
