what was happening with me was my hair was becoming burdensome. Id have to get up earlier to allow it to dry naturally - crazy, huh? so I decided to try drying it. I use a hot sock and keep the dryer moving. I cant believe that it is terrible for the hair - after all, before I became CG, I washed daily, just llike I do now, and dried it with a dryer, and my hair was never in bad condition. I think its important to adapt our routines to fit our lives - not vice versa.
