Inspired by a number of bloggers who have gone down this route (like Ariana at Paris to Go), and being a huge fan of minimalism and anything that saves time, I’ve been really wanting to try the No Shampoo movement.
Right now I’m on Day 3 of No Shampoo. I used to wash my hair every second day with Pantene shampoo and conditioner. The Long Hair Community (and they know their stuff!) will tell you that Pantene uses silicones (or something) and that it’s bad for your hair. All I know is that it made my hair incredibly silky and frizz-free, looking shiny and divine. It gave me the kind of hair that other women are jealous of while they pretend not to mind that all you did was air-dry your hair. Anyway. That hair is gone to me now!
Now I’ve got hair that is frizzy (thanks, no conditioner!) and feels thick (in a bad way) because it’s erm… greasy. I cheated and shampooed my bangs because there is nothing worse than bangs in need of a wash. The good parts are that my hair has intense volume (thanks to frizz?) and I’m seeing a whole lot of wave going on. My hair was pretty straight before but would flip at the ends and hold a curl really well if I ever bothered to style it. I’m hoping that No Shampoo will give me a little more wave and bounce! That’d be great.
And hey, if I could save $20 every four months and 20 minutes every two days, that would make this pathway totally worth it.
