Dread update - 6 months:)
Thanks for the advice re: drying. I will try a sham-wow.
I have to keep my hair up at work, hence the bun. Most of the time it's down.
And yes, the finger-combing - bad habit I admit!! However if my hair was to dread any faster I feel like I would be totally overwhelmed! Every morning I wake up and there are new loops and tucks and pulls. I feel like I need the slow process in order to keep up with it mentally. Maybe thats why I have subconsciously started finger combing.. Thanks for the reminder that it will not help in the long run!
