A funny thing happened ...
 
while sitting in the dentist chair.

About six months ago at my last cleaning, my male dental hygenist with curly hair (and 6 kids!), mentioned how great my hair always looks. He said he one has daughter with very long hair like his which would be at least 3B maybe some 3C and how long it took for him to care for it (his wife had given up) - trying to brush out the tangles wet, that it's always so dry and frizzy, the usual.

I asked if he washed her hair and what he used for condish. No conditioner and only shampoo. I told him I hadn't washed my hair in a very long time and it made much easier for me to care for. Much conversation followed culminating in a product recommendation from me - LVPNG and of course, to make sure there was no A cone.

Flash forward to Friday. I go back for my next cleaning. With my mouth full of appliances, he mentions how well CO-washing is going for him and his daughter. I had completely forgotten about the conversation. All of a sudden, I have dental hygenists coming out of the woodwork saying OMG is this her??? They all started telling me how great it was working and asking a bunch of questions. Seems he told them about how well it was working for his daughter and a bunch recommended it to their family members. I told them about nc.com so don't be surprised if there's an influx of members with great teeth.

Haircare tips happen in the oddest places. :laughing9:

that is funny! my dentist, female, has long curly hair and she always compliments me on my hair, so of course the conversation is about curly hair. to date, she has not bought into the cg method, tho. you never know, tho!! :laughing8: maybe in the future we'll all be walking around with our great curly hair AND super white teeth from all the advice the new members will have!! :-)

That is so great! I'm glad your advice was heeded as opposed to him going "what, no shampoo?!". I love this story. You made a difference!

That's cool WHC!! It must feel good to help your fellow curlies without even realizing it huh??? ;)

That's great that a Dad would take so much interest in his daughter's hair. You might have just made haircare better for a whole generation in his family!

That's great! He actually listened and he told other curlies too! That girl doesn't even know it, but you saved her years of heart ache with her hair.

That is so funny and cool! Love the image of you being swamped by dental personnel while "all hooked up" in the chair.

You've provided a valuable service! And we will welcome our new members. (Are fluoride treatments CG????)

Awah thanks everyone :oops:

And it was hilarious to have them all coming to see me for tips while he was trying to polish my teeth. :lol:

I think that it's great that he actually listened! And, i agree with Sydney, it's nice to see a dad involved in hair care too.

Oh that's such a great story. And I always hate trying to keep up a conversation while you've got all that stuff in your mouth. :)

It's nice that a Dad is getting involved. One time someone's mom asked me about my hair. Since, then I have become really good friends with her daughter... but she has not bought into CG. I have plans for this summer at camp though. mwah ha ha :pl:
