No silk pillowcase, no organic products, oils or butters, no trimming or search and destroy of any kind, no co-washing or sealing, no protective styling or care in the world of making an effort to retain length or for that matter even the slightest notion of focusing on the “health” of the hair…um WHAT? This sounds like a heavenly dream or a recipe that leads to the road of complete and utter obliteration of every strand on my head, but in fact it is my man’s go to guide in how he cares for his hair which is not really at all. His regimen is no regimen which made me realize what I have always known, there really is no holy grail in predicting what will work in terms of retaining length and “health” of our hair, it truly does depend on the individual.

The featured picture is of my man after I finger detangled and combed his hair. After all the previous factors that were just mentioned I could not find any split ends, I mean, I there was not one split end in existence which mystified the hell out of me beyond belief, since I have seen night after night of how he rolls around on a cotton pillowcase. Really ladies how many men have we seen with thick, long and lust worthy locks? Who would look at us as if we were speaking tongues if we asked “What is your regimen? Now I am sure it correlates with the levels of testosterone leading to the thickness of the individual strands coupled with low manipulation but this sparked an Oprah ”aha” moment or rather a question…

Have you found more success with a low maintenance hair routine?
