Call Me a Quitter, Nah! Conditioner Only Results
The most important thing is that I tried! Yes, for the past 11 days, I did not wash my hair with shampoo, but conditioner only. I know that you are all dying to know the results! Here's what happened:
-I realized that my hair doesn't have to be shampooed every day.
-My scalp produces too much oil, because I make it. By shampooing my hair daily I strip the natural oils from my hair causing my scalp to over-produce.
-On Sunday I realized that my hair really was lacking body.
-This morning after a misty walk (which was called off by rain), I threw in the towel and shampooed my hair.
I do believe with more "practice" my hair could do MOSTLY without shampoo. I decided last night that I must start shampooing my hair every once-in-a-while because my hair needs every bit of body that it can get from shampoo, conditioner wasn't cutting it.
Here's my new plan:
-Limit Shampooing to three times, or twice a week.
-Find conditioner with EXTRA BODY!
-ALWAYS leave in conditioner as long as possible before rinsing
-ALWAYS rinse with the coolest water possible. It seals up the healthy shine in my hair.
What do I recommend?!?!
TRY IT! Don't be afraid. If you get scared and panic, just shampoo like normal. Take baby steps by skipping one day here and one day there. I truly believe it's worth trying!
For future reference, this is my hair, hehe! I probably should have shown you these first. These two were taken on Sunday, I started on Friday. Check out New Mom at Growing Up Gracefully, she took pictures after the first day! Let's watch her blog as she experiments with CO!
