How to Use Water Only Washing Method for Hair Growth (PT. 1)

I remember when I walked into a restaurant, ready to order my food, a woman complimented me on my hair. After asking me what I use as my natural hair products, her eyes widened at my response, “I only wash my hair with water but I do make my own hair mask.” I know the idea sounds quite unusual, so of course, she asked me a question that many people are probably wondering, “You don’t have any buildup?”

When it comes to the water only washing method, some people think that you aren’t cleaning your hair well without using shampoo and conditioner and many think that it might be hard to get rid of buildup but none of this is true. Your hair can be cleaned just as thorough as using shampoos but the process is different if you ask me.
When using shampoo, I used to just wet my hair and massage my hair with the product and then wash it out… done. When it comes to the water only washing method, I like to section my hair in four-parts and wash each section by massaging my scalp; Cleansing away any dirt until I feel like it’s clean enough.

You know your hair better than anyone, so when you start using this method (if you’re interested,) you will know how clean your hair is…

It might be weird at first and you might see some changes in your hair. I don’t know how to explain it but when I first started this method, I noticed that each time I washed my hair, gunk would be washing out of my hair every time but I don’t have that problem anymore. Not that it was a problem; that was just my hair’s way of detoxing. The water only washing method is just a detox for your hair.

It’s up to you if you’re okay with using chemical based products. Maybe you just want to stop using shampoo and still use conditioner and other products. Or maybe you want to just use this method sometimes or for a month, Or maybe you are like me and only want to use natural beauty products for as long as you live…

I think it’s safe to say that my hair is completely vegan and when it comes to using beauty products, such as shampoo, it has to be raw vegan plant-based or else I’m not putting it into my hair.

In the beginning, I washed my hair every other day because washing it every day wasn’t healthy for my hair but now I do it at least every three days or once a week. It depends on my schedule. You’ll find whatever works for you and yes, any hair type can try this method…

Love always,
