Do any of you only use shampoo, no conditioner?

rainshowerrainshower Posts: 4,420Registered Users
I'm trying to hone down my product usage.

I want to use a natural shampoo with very few synthetic ingredients, but one that will impart detangling properties and softness, so that i can forgo using a rinse-out or leave-in conditioner afterward.

anyone? is it easy to maintain healthy hair without using conditioner of any kind?

my hair stats: lengthy 4aish-3cish hair (one length all around. front of breasts in front, bottom of shoulder blades in back) thick, very tangly.

    Aubrey Organics has shampoos that many people say detangles their hair nicely. I have the AO replenishing conditioner and it's great.

    thanks for the reply. it's been a while since i've used aubrey organic shampoo. i may give the honeysuckle rose shampoo a try since it's moisturizing.

    anyone else?

    The idea of using shampoo without conditioner is alarming to me, because my hair would dry out in a New York minute. I think if I were going to eliminate one, it'd be the shampoo, and I'd just use conditioner.

    I'm the other way around. I pretty much eliminated the shampoo.
