    So you haven't put anything in your hair for two weeks? Have you just been rinsing with water, then?

    Your hair probably feels greasy because water alone will not remove the natural oils your scalp produces, and those are coating your hair. What removes these oils is motion -- you need to scrub your scalp vigorously with your fingertips in order to remove the grease that accummulates there.

    As for getting rid of all the oil that's already in your hair, you may want to try a lemon rinse. Invest in a light conditioner (I like Suave Tropical Coconut) and mix about a quarter-sized blob with about 2 Tbs of lemon juice. Pour that over your head and SCRUB. Your hair will be clean without the use ofany harsh chemicals.

    Now, shampoo and conditioner aren't just for straight hair. Some shampoos can be helpful in removing build-up on curly hair, and you won't find a single person on these forums who doesn't use conditioner (sometimes three in one shower!). Moisture is essential to curly hair, as it is what controls frizz, and curlies can get this moisture from conditioner. Since your hair looks pretty good with nothing in it, you may not need to much moisture -- you could probably stick with the same light conditioner for both conditioner-washing (applying conditioner to the scalp and scrubbing, to help remove dirt and grease) and regular conditioning (adding moisture to the length of your hair).

    That said, shampoo, conditioner, hair gels and hairsprays are all not necessarily bad for hair, as long as they don't contain "bad" ingredients, such as drying alcohols, silicones, mineral oil, or heavy waxes. Unfortunately, most products do, which is probably why you've had bad luck with them.

    Hope this helps, and keep asking questions!
