i've had a shaved head for the last 5 years or so, but over the past few months i've decided to grow my hair out. it's still not that long yet (maybe 1-2 inches) but starting to get to the point where it will look silly if left alone.

my question is i've started using a comb for the first time in a loooong time, and i LOVE the feel of it lol. i don't comb it aggressively or anything, but the teeth of the comb lightly slide along scalp, and it feels great. is this bad for your scalp though?

Just don't be any agressive. Regarding the feel of it, it will increase oil production which is a problem for people with oily scalp.

my hair/scalp is typically too dry if anything, so that's a good thing for me.

In my opinion, brushing the scalp is essential for healthy hair. The brushing helps exfoliate dead skin-cells, which literally block the hair from sprouting out from the scalp. I personally use a bristle-brush and brush my scalp religiously.

misterE's regimen:

1. Eat only vegetables, whole-grains and beans
2. Drink only water or organic green-tea.
3. Exercise.
4. Get plenty of sunshine exposure on the body.
5. Intermediate fasting.
6. Apply glycolic-acid to the scalp.

No. The hairs that would fall off from MPB would fall out anyway, brushing does nothing to advance it.

Current regimen:

5% topical Spiro cream twice daily
2% Nizoral schampoo twice weekly

I parted my hair in the same place for a long time, and now the hair along the part is noticeably thinner, at least in the front. So combing certainly hasn't been good for me.
