Any of you wavies (or curlies) do the water wash method?

I was wanting to try the water wash method, so I was wondering if any of you had tried it and if so what do you think?

    No-one? Well I guess I will just have to do some more research and try it for myself. :blob3:

    Don't know if I can get past the no shampoo thing, I couldn't with cg cause my hair got so weighed down, but maybe with no conditioner or product my hair will do better.

    I used to do this! I would occasionally shampoo/condition though, if I felt I needed it. I honestly think it was the best shape my hair has ever been in, BUT, my hair is a lot wavier/curlier now.

    On wash day: Yes to Carrots Shampoo and Conditioner is my jam, sometimes I dabble with their anti-frizz serum, too

    I have tried it once, when my hair was way longer. And I didn't use any styling products back then. But it seems water builds up more than using no water at all.. Too much mineral build-up from hard water. So, this is not for me.
