Any of you wavies (or curlies) do the water wash method?
Hair Type 2
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.
Do a search for water only on the long hair community. They have tons of info.

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.

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.
