Hair care and the luthier (or, Uncle Greg checks in!)

How much conditioner do you use when you know that you are sanding that day?

Now, one might brush this off (seewhatididthere?) as a silly question, but let me make it perfectly clear when I say that it's a very important issue. When working in the shop in the Texas heat, you not only need to make sure that you keep your body hydrated; you must also keep those tresses nice and nourished! Sawdust (or sanding dust) can definitely dry out many a surface, that's why I'll slather on half a tub or so of petroleum jelly, just to keep that glorious mane of mine protected.
