[su_dropcap style=”flat” size=”5″]I[/su_dropcap] Is this real life? You betcha. I too thought it was crazy considering my oldest sister has been a hair stylist for 15 years and is now a salon owner. She would probably flip if she knew I was doing this, but it will be our little secret (until she finds this blog and yells at me with concerned love in a comment) *giggle snort*.
This actually started off as an experiment but after the first hair wash without it, I was hooked. You’re probably thinking my hair is really dry.
But it’s not!
It’s more healthy and voluminous than it ever has been and I’m 30 years old!
When I was living in a SW suburb of Denver earlier this year, I made several lifestyle adjustments. I was pretty much alone aside from my parents living 30 minutes away that allowed me to spend time discovering new ways of living in a completely different environment.
I had moved from the desert (Scottsdale, Arizona) that left my mind & body out of whack from the sudden change of the high altitude of 5,280 ft, every day.
It wasn’t one thing per se that pushed me to experiment, I literally woke up one day and said I want to stop using conditioner. I, as a whole, felt heavy. I wanted to do something small or big to feel lighter so I started with my hair.
[su_dropcap style=”flat” size=”5″]B[/su_dropcap] By not using conditioner, you absolutely run the risk of tangles, dryness, and dull. The hair still needs to stay healthy – this is where supplemental nutrients become vital, otherwise, you risk having dry and brittle hair.
I already am a lover of oils and extracts so this was an easy move for me, but if one wanted to make this move – one would need to be acclimated to having properly proportioned oils in their hair.
I didn’t just drop conditioner either further nourishing it,
Now obviously the amount used will determine the “greasy” factor, so keeping in mind that a little goes a long way is key.
Moreover, I’ve had [without a doubt] wholesome hair since I was in 8th grade (and every color you can think of) because of my sister as a cosmetologist and “hip/stylish” mother even prior to that, so I think overall I’ve been pretty lucky to have the organic desire to keep it healthy.

[su_dropcap style=”flat” size=”5″]S[/su_dropcap] Since [finally and permanently] moving to Portland, Oregon June of 2016, there is one major thing I noticed with my hair: it is completely fluffy! So take the above positive attributes of no conditioner plus the moisture in the air, this is the happiest I have ever been with my hair even in its natural state, to date.
Overall, I would highly recommend this method to anyone. I’m so happy that I’ve gotten rid of that greasy, weighed down conditioner!
What’s the worst that could happen? Nothing [in life] is permanent. If you have any questions I’d be happy to answer them or give advice on anything you’re curious about. Give it a go!
