      Hello Becca! I am enjoying reading your posts on washing only with water. I have been thinking about this for a long time, wondering if it would be an option. I have tried so many shampoos and conditioners, most recently started using Kevin Murphy, since it is used and sold at my hair salon.
      My hair frustrates me to no end! I have fine hair, but it’s medium thick…. Tendency to be oily after a day and 1/2 after washing… so I am in the classic cycle of wanting to go longer to wash, but it is so greasy that I cave and wash it. On top of that, my hair is very lightweight, and seems to become more so after washing. It also gets static-y! So annoying. I went clothes shopping the other day and every top I put on and took off left me with static electrified hair! Oh, and I wear it long, middle of the back. I am 44 and getting some gray roots… and have been having it covered w/ semi-permanent hair gloss. I need something to change though! I think my new strategy will be the water only washing, and no more color treatments. And that is that. I am hopeful that without any product in my hair it will possibly regain some of its thickness from years past!
      Anyway, I love your site… and I do have one question, as I am just starting out. I washed with water yesterday… and have a boar bristle brush… I saw your homemade dry shampoo recipe for brown hair. I will be trying it out, as I am sure this is going to be ugly for a few weeks or so! Anyway, I couldn’t find where you instruct on how to apply the dry shampoo (the one w/ arrowroot and cocoa). When time permits, would you please send me the method in which you use this mixture? Thank you so much! I wish I had found your site years ago. I think this regime will be just what the doctor ordered.

      Hi, I really like your posts on WO Method.
      I want advice on how to deal with beach and bathing in the ocean (sea salt in your hair) while sticking to Water Only.

    Love your posts about hair. Are you going to post about skin care soon? Very curious to know what you do.

    Hey! I love your hair posts, so much so that I just subscribed! I am on a hair journey as well. I was no poo (using various methods such as egg yolk, bentonite clay etc) from Feb-Oct last year, and then I started using some shea moisture low poo for a couple months, and now I’m back to no poo and water only after getting a water softener. I was wondering if you’re going to do a post about shea butter as a heat protectant before straightening? I don’t straighten often, maybe 1-2 times per month on low heat (I have low porosity hair and some low heat helps open the cuticles to allow my abundance of sebum to soak in), but I would still like to know what you have to say about it. Again, LOVE your posts!

      I am glad you find these posts helpful! I am currently working on a shea butter / heat protectant post. Shea butter acts like a silicone does, so it’s recommended as a natural heat protectant by some. I want to test it out a bit more before making an official post on it. :)

    Is there a way that one can replace even soap? I am trying to go for a free-chemical way of life and it is not easy. My skin is extra sensitive and I really want to improve my life. I started going no-poo and I find your website the best as of yet. I am now hoping to find ways to keep clean without using chemicals (we all know there are a bunch in soaps and shampoo’s). Any help you can give me would be awesome. Thanks.

      Yes there are. I have been using Everyday Shea Moisturizing Body Wash (Lavender) for about a year now and find while it does have lathering agents in it, it is SO much gentler & more hydrating on my skin than body wash containing SLS. You can find even gentler methods, but I haven’t personally explored the no poo body wash subject (only done reading on it).

    I absolutely love your posts about the water only hair washing that’s what I’m going too do! I’m also interested in these other natural living things like skin care and diet so I’ve saved your page and i can’t wait to learn what you do!
