Hair Week: SheFinds Solution

Problem: Washing your hair every day is damaging it. Whether your problem is dry hair or an oily scalp that must be washed every day, daily shampooing does more harm than good.

Solution: Conditioner Washing. It’s a technique mainly suggested for those with curly hair, so I asked curly experts Michelle Breyer and Gretchen Heber (of NaturallyCurly.com) to explain this interesting concept:

“Shampooing, especially with detergent shampoos, can really dry out the hair. Shampoo no more than once a week using a low- or no-sulfate shampoo. On the other days, conditioner wash. That means using a conditioner and your fingers to remove buildup from the scalp. It is a misconception that lather is what really cleans – it is the water and the action of the fingers that really cleanses the hair. By conditioner washing, you cleanse the hair without drying it out.”

A great solution! Michelle and Gretchen suggest Oyin Honey Hemp and DevaChan One Condition. But, for everyday conditioner washing, I like to use slightly less expensive (yet still good and effective) products.

My favorite: Dove Intense Moisturizing Conditionericon is perfect for dry hair and moisturizes the scalp, too. There’s a Dove Conditionericon for every hair type and they only cost $4, so pick which one matches your needs and wash away.
