Do you consider it dry, normal, or oily?
I wish that mine grew that long. Mine is the slowest growing hair that I've ever known. Phooey.
My mother used to use VO5 in a tube (like an old fashioned toothpaste tube.) for flyaway hair. She'd squeeze a little onto her palm, rub her 2 palms together vigorously, then run her palms over our, or her hair. It worked, and you couldn't see or feel it there.
Yes, definitely be careful around fans, candles, and gas stoves!
My grandmother had hair as long as yours when I was small. She would put a straight backed chair, from the kitchen, into the living room, and let us brush it when she took it out of the bun that she wore when cooking and cleaning, etc.
Then, one day, she cut it. She had my cousin's best friend, who was actually a hair dresser, I think, come over...maybe weekly?...to 'do her hair' in the kitchen. Becky, the woman who did her hair, also did my aunt's the same evening/night. My aunt lived next door. Memories.
