All at night:
1) Comb through with wide-tooth comb
2) Brush with nylon bristle brush for 5-10 minutes, being very thorough to brush through every every from root to tip.
3) Hop in shower and scrub/massage hair and scalp as if I were lathering up shampoo, only without actually using any product.
4) Squeeze water out, towel-dry, and put up in a specific way so as to have a consistent wavy curl similar to my own natural texture the next morning. It air-dries over night.

So yeah, that’s it. Water-only, don’t use any styling products. Haven’t in years actually. Cheapest, easiest, and most reliable hair care routine to date.

I’ve been wanting to try this for so long, but I have a very oily scalp! I really want to try the Morrocco Method hair care products. Which bristle brush do you use?

Fatana – no, it actually doesn’t. At first my scalp might have smelled a little less “fresh,” but it never smelled gross. Just didn’t smell like clean fragrance. I don’t think my hair ever really even smelled actually once I went water-only. I’d think that if it did smell, one could just use a DIY hair spray with essential oils to add a scent to it after showering.

Lindz – My hair, while dry-ish on the lengths and ends, was also always oily. After 2 days of not shampooing, you’d be able to tell, but then my lengths would look awesome. Now about 2+ months in, I really don’t get oily on my scalp. Like… if I run my fingers over my scalp, I don’t actually feel any slick oil residue. And I just use some old cheap Goody one, it’s one of those round brushes. I rinse it every night and wash it with soap 1-2 times a week. Once I started using the brush, it definitely made a difference, and my scalp no longer shows any build-up. It’s a bit gross though – when combing and brushing, any dead skin cells, dust/dirt, and oil that has combined together will stick to the tools and create a thick whiteish coating. This isn’t visible on my hair, and I no longer have anything transfer to my hands if I’m casually running my hands through my hair, and the residue rinses off entirely with water.

I’ve been loving the Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner. For a product you can buy at Walmart, it’s AMAZING!!! 🙂
For a deep conditioner, I use one from the Matrix Biolage line. And then I use Moroccan Argan Oil Cream after I get out of the shower… 🙂

I use Organix Coconut Milk shampoo and conditioner every other day, followed by the Coconut Milk leave in serum by the same brand. I let my hair air dry as much as possible and then blow dry it to smooth it out for a few minutes.

I’m testing out a new shamp/cond set but after i get out of the shower i always use my macadamia leave in conditioner and then the macadamia healing oil treatment. they make my hair so soft, shiny, and healthy looking. luckily those products last a long time because you don’t need much 🙂 so very worth the money

I stopped using shampoo since January. I’ve been cleaning my hair w/ baking soda, and rinse it w/ water and apple cider vinegar. My hair has never been healthier and it’s very forgiving on my natural curls – no frizz.

I tried no-poo, but it a) made my scalp verrry itchy, b) broke me out, c) felt like too much effort, d) smelled weird in the shower. Water-only works insanely better for me, but yes, my hair is also much healthier than it once was! It now has a reddish tint to the ends though, but is never really dry.

I use the l’Oréal Everstrong Reconstruct shampoo every 2-3 days along with the conditioner on the top half of my hair, and on my lenghts I use either the l’Oréal Everstrong deep replenishing masque or the Organix moroccan oil masque. I rarely blowdry in the summer and stopped using my straightner a couple weeks ago, I just wear my hair in a side ponytail everyday and keep it wavy. When I blowdry I use my Sally Herschberger Go with the Blow thermal styler or my Tresemmé heat protectant.

I wash my hair every other day with Tresemme shampoo and conditioner (usually something moisturising as my hair is dry from heat styling). I use Aussie 3 Minute Miracle maybe once a month is my hair is feeling dehydrated. Tresemme heat protection spray for blowdrying and a heat protection flatiron/finishing spray to straighten. I don’t use any other products on my hair, and although I straighten it every other day (Srsly my natural hair is like a blonde, toned down Afro) it’s in really good condition and only feels dry if I skip conditioning.

When I shower: Whatever shampoo I have at the moment (currently, Shimmerlights). Rinse. Whatever conditioner I have (currently, a pink Pantene…something, but I’m very nearly out). Rinse. Air-dry. Straighten whenever I feel like it. Curl whenever I feel like it. Dye it sometimes.
I’m a lazy bum.

Mild shampoo and conditioner everyday, deep conditioner every 3 days.
I always use a wide-tooth comb.
Dry my hair using a fan instead of blowdryer.
I use heat protectant serum before I use my curling iron/straightener

If i can get away with it, I wash my hair the night before and just use dry shampoo in the morning. Saves a lot of time for me. Haha!

A very intresting question indeed =) I recently updated my weekly hair care routine and I believe it’s paying off:

1) Firstly, I’m down to washing my hair two times a week. If I’ve been a lot at the gym, it might be three times a week.
2) I wash my hair with shampoo twice (one time for getting rid of grease and old styling products and one time for giving the shampoo a chance to really do it’s job)
3) I use a soothing hair mask after the shampoo and leave it in for approximatly 2-3 minutes while I use a nice shower gel for my body.
4) Rinse out the hair mask and applying conditioner. Rinse out the conditioner with lukewarm rather than hot water.
5) Giving the hair some time to dry out, applying a heat protecting gel and then blowdry and occasionally using a hair straightener.

I rather treat my hair thoroughly twice a week and be happy with the styling results than doing something half-heartedly.

I wash my hair every other day with shampoo and conditioner. I put in a mask each time, too, but I soon realized that you don’t do your hair any good by overdoing hair care so I will just reach for mask about every two weeks.

Since discovering Moroccan Oil a few years ago, it’s blissfully simple. Shampoo (AG – a great Canadian brand – or whatever salon litre bottle Costco happens to carry) and then Moroccan oil applied to towel dried hair and a bit more after I’ve finished drying/flat ironing. Moroccan Oil has eliminated the need for anything else -conditioner, styling products, glossing/smoothing products. Once in a while, in winter, I might use some conditioner if I have time but rarely do I need it.

Alternate Bb. Color Care Shampoo and conditioner with Bb. Mending Shampoo and conditioner, Bb. Thickening Serum, and Bb. Tonic Lotion spray. I don’t use anything but a wide-toothed comb. No blow-drying or hair brushes… and my hair is pin-straight.

I use Lush Cosmetics solid seanik shampoo followed by their solid jungle conditioner. I am absolutely in love with their solid conditioner. It doesn’t feel like anything going on and you only have to rinse for a second, but it makes your hair so soft. When I get out of the shower I comb my hair and then lightly blowdry it.

I have my father’s dry hair and recently my scalp has become flaky, so I do two things.

For the past couple of months, I have been massaging extra virgin olive oil into my scalp, then leaving it there for at least half an hour (sometimes longer) before washing my hair.

I carry about a spoonful of brown sugar with me, and I massage it GENTLY into my scalp for exfoliation. It’s actually kind of moisturizing, and I use brown sugar to exfoliate my face and neck as well.

I then use a little bit of Garnier Fructis’ Anti Dandruff Shampoo (doesn’t really work for me, and feels drying more than anything) on the top front of my head, because that tends to be my problem area. I finish off with Garnier Fructis sleek and shine conditioner.

Thanks to the olive oil, my dry hair isn’t such a hassle for me.. it feels so healthy and moisturized. And using brown sugar to treat my scalp seems to work more effectively than a dandruff shampoo. I ran my fingers through my hair just now to test, and my fingertips came up empty! (As opposed to last week when I didn’t use brown sugar and my scalp was a mess).

And then I wrap a towel around my head for about twenty minutes, then take it off and let my hair air dry.

I wash my hair at MOST twice a week. Washing your hair daily, makes your head produce more oil, which makes you need to wash your hair more.
SO, since i have oily skin, i have greasy hair.
I wash my hair once with shampoo to get the grease and dirt out.
I rinse that out.
I re shampoo and massage that into my scalp for about 5 mintues.
Rinse that out thoroughly.
Apply conditioner to the length of my hair
rinse that out in hot enoughh water, then i turn the cold tap up and the hot tap off completely and blast the entire length of my hair with cold water.
This seals the hair shaft all the way down and gives an excellent shine to my hair.
Towel dry and apply a leave in conditioner because my hair is incredibly tangly lately.
Brush through with my hair brush (for some reason i CANNOT find a widetooth comb in my town)
Then i blow dry my hair.
I dont use a straighteners because i have pretty pin straight hair anyways.
Ive recieved compliments on how soft and shiny my hair is and i get asked what i use regularly. I happen to SWEAR by cold water. Give it a try! It also prolongs the clean hair feel. So you need to wash your hair less because it stuns the grease producing follicle and it reduces production of sebum (My uncle is a professional hair stylist and he was shocked to know that i knew that trick.)

Pureology Nanoworks shampoo and conditioner. I only wash my hair every other day. Every third day I use Nexxus Phyto organics Chroma Life color lock masque 🙂

I co-wash, i.e. scrub my scalp with conditioner (Suave Naturals Coconut). Then I rinse out and use a deeper conditioner (Giovanni 50/50) and leave that on my hair while i wash, shave, etc. Then I detangle using a wide tooth comb and rinse that out and scrunch a hard holding gel (Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee) into my hair while bent in half in the shower, hanging my head upside down. I squeeze out the excess water with a microfiber towel and diffuse upside down until 75 percent dry. Then I scrunch in a lighter gel (Kinky Curly Curling Custard) and diffuse for another 2 or 3 minutes. Flip my hair back, shake it out and don’t touch it until it’s 100 percent dry. When it’s 100 percent dry I can scrunch out crunch, if there is any. It sounds complicated but it’s not and the results are soft, touchable, almost frizz free curls. 🙂
