I had heard bits and pieces about stopping using shampoo and conditioner a few years ago but never really looked into it. Then last summer I stumbled upon Amanda's amazing blog, Living In Another Language, where she talked about stopping using shampoo and conditioner in this post, this post, this post, and this post. Once I was done a little bit of blog
|This is what people look like when I tell them I don't use shampoo. This is a day I would have washed my hair. It's a bit messy because I was out in the wind all day.|
That's it. It really is easy. I did experience a bit of a transition phase when I first started where my hair was still trying to figure out how much oil it should be producing now that I wasn't stripping it of it's natural oils anymore. But I took some of Amanda's tips and just changed the ratios I was using in my solution to accommodate for the oilyness that I was experiencing.
|This is my go to look on days where my hair has gotten a little too oily to wear down. Just throw some dry shampoo in it and up it goes.|
Some people I have talked to about this seem interested, some people immediately shut it down. If you're interested I highly recommend going to read more about it at Living In Another Language and then giving it a shot. If you have any questions about it feel free to reach out and I'll do my best to answer them.
Could you stop using shampoo and conditioner?
