That's a great story! Made me smile.
My boyfriend has 3B hair. When we first started dating it was mid-back length but was in pretty bad shape from using shampoo and brushing it, etc.
So a couple years ago he chopped it all off into a military/cop cut. I absolutely hated it but hey, it's his hair.
Last year he started letting it grow back out and it is now about 3 inches long, thick and curly and healthy. And he hasn't used shampoo once. Only conditioner. And never uses a brush or comb, just his fingers. Good boy. : )
