That's what I also thought... but according to what I've read on the other thread titled "Conditioner Only Washing," you're supposed to wash your scalp well with the conditioner. At least that's what I got from all the responses.
That's why I also think it would add more oils into the hair and leave hair looking dull and more greasy. But I guess it works.

I don't think I'll be trying it though. For whatever reason weird reason I wouldn't feel like my hair is clean unless I wash it well with a shampoo, plus I like it to smell nice. I also just spent $10 on a tiny bottle of Redken shampoo and I'm definitely NOT wasting it. These products are so expensive.

I think after a while of washing your hair with a conditioner it would probably produce buildup... so if you're going to do that, you should also probably also wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo once a month or something.
That's just what I think though. I'm sure people who actually do this would know more about it.
[QUOTE=steph66]Has anyone looked into ''no shampoo"? It's where you don't use any traditional shampoo or conditioner, but you wash with things like apple cider vinegar and baking soda, there are tons of other things you can do if you are looking to stop using shampoos because they are ''too harsh''. just do a search on the web and i'm sure you can find more info. try "no pooing". I myself have not tried it but i am seriously thinking about it and doing a little research myself. Anyone here tried it?[/QUOTE]
There are mild shampoos out there that won't damage hair nearly as much as some. People make a big deal about the chemicals, it's not like anyone ever died or lost all their hair from washing it with shampoo... seriously.

But anyway, baking soda is even worse for hair than any shampoo. A lot of "experts" recommend that you DO NOT use baking soda in your hair. It just dries it up and creates more damage.
I don't know about the vinegar though. That may work, but I'd still do A LOT of research before trying anything like that.
conditioner only washing is best for thick, curly or wavy, coarse hair. if you have thin, fine, or straight hair it probably wont work as well.

i have done this method in the past and it worked okay. but just a little something that you guys must know.... you CANNOT use just any conditioner for a conditioner wash. it has to be something that has actual cleansing properties.

i know that suave coconut conditioner is good for this, or a clarifying conditioner like vo5 kiwi and lime. choose one that does not have a lot of silicones in it.

and if you use a good cleansing conditioner, you will not get dandruff or have hair loss.

also, baking soda is ok to use on your scalp if used once a month at most, to strip off buildup. it can be drying and harsh, but if used occasionally it will not cause damage.

I tried vinegar in my hair once, as I read it was okay to use occasionally to make hair soft and shiney.... I didn't really see much of a diffrence... and I couldn't get the smell out until i shampooed!!... so I guess that would defeat the purpose.
