Light Bulb Moment!
I just realized this is the first time in my life that my ends haven't been dry. Growing up I always heard keep your ends conditioned, they'll dry out. Not necessarily directed at me, but just the general hair care wisdom of growing up in a black home. And I've always struggled with that. When combing my hair those tiny pieces would break off and my ends just looked bushy.
I can't remember the last time I saw hair fall out of my head that wasn't the length of my hair and when I touch my hair it's all one consistent level of moisture (maybe a drier canopy) from root to end. It's kind of mind boggling. I've never thought that was possible.
