Sebum-coating method question for the experienced long-hairs

Question Sebum-coating method question for the experienced long-hairs
Hey guys so I just had a question about the sebum-coating method from the "Men's Hair Book" which I have and have read. The book says that as hair gets longer it will become more noticeable when you lose it as is normal daily simply because each hair strand will be longer.

However, I had two questions about the sebum-coating method:

1) My hair is approaching long and I do at times notice hair in the shower particularly after the sebum-coating part. I was wondering if the sebum method will put undue strain on the hair strands as the scalp is massaged and each lock is ideally coated...causing hairs that wouldn't fall out to come.

2) Will sebum-coating cause hair breakage?

Thanks for input!

RE: Sebum-coating method question for the experienced long-hairs
You seem to be getting good results from the Sebum Coating method from your description. While Rogelio is the guru and the one who knows all about this, I have spoken with him many times and I use his methods too, so basically:

1) This is completely normal and is expected. When you spread the sebum, you are creating a layer of lubrication across the hair strands, so the hair strands that shed daily simply fall off. Instead, if your hair wasn't properly sebuminized, your shed hair strands would remain on your head and interlock with the rest of non shed hair strands, creating knots and tangles.

Remember that in the book Rogelio mentions that a male sheds about 100 hair strands per DAY. So you are bound to be seeing hair strands in the shower, and as you quite rightly pointed out as per The Men's Hair Book, the longer your hair, the more you will notice this.

2) If you follow the instructions of the Sebum Coating method correctly, you will not do any damage to your hair, on the contrary, you will make it stronger and more resistant to the elements. Rogelio says to smoothly run your fingers through the locks and WITHOUT pulling the hair. If you're noticeably pulling your hair hard then you're doing the method wrong.

Rogelio does in fact mention in the book that at first, when you are doing the method right, you will notice more hairs in the shower than usual because you will now be optimally grooming your hair and creating the right environment with the sebum, which causes the shed hair that would otherwise be tangled, to fall off (which is what you want too anyway!).
