A Few of My Favorite Things: Conditioner!

I've been No-Pooing (no shampoo) since my first big chop back in 2007.  There are about a million websites, blogs, and forums that will give you very detailed specifics about the benefits of No-Pooing so I will not go into them all, but my 2 main reasons for sticking to conditioners are...

1. It's just plain cheaper - The less I have to spend on hair products the better!  Right hand raised and currently seeking a meeting, I am a products junky and if I can keep my hair healthy with just conditioner why would I waste money on shampoo.

2. Shampoos are abrasive - Most shampoos are simply stripping the oils and moisturizers that conditioners are replacing in your hair.  If you need to clarify in order to get rid of product build up, you can easily find a conditioner with enough cleansers to rid your hair of build up or find an easy homemade clarifying recipe (another good use for Apple Cider Vinegar).


In my years of searching for the best conditioner without breaking my pockets here are a few that I have come to LOVE...

Suave Professionals Rosemary Mint Conditioner

THE BEST conditioner you will find for the price.  A 32oz. bottle will run you $3-$5.  Great for detangling, curl definition, and moisture.  I no-poo my hair with this as well as add it to my favorite daily spritz.

Organix Hydrating Teatree Mint Conditioner

Not as good as Suave Professionals but still a great hydrating conditioner which makes for easy detangling and distribution.  Sulfate and Silicone free.

Philosophy Amazing Grace Perfumed Hair Conditioner

This conditioner takes my curl definition to the max!  Great for a wash and go in the summer time.  A little pricier than the conditioners above (about $21.00) but if you only use it for a wash and go like I do, it should last you a few months.
