Learning what my hair liked

Not necessarily a tragedy, but I have had many setbacks that come with learning your hair. I've lost hair due to taking braids out wrong and not keeping my hair moisturized. I recovered by simply learning what I did wrong in that situation and modifying my regimen accordingly.
