Default Going product less

Does anyone go product less? By that I mean not leaving in any daily conditioner, not using gel, hairspray, or any other styling products? I know how big my hair can get without products but I've been contemplating going product less to avoid the wet look since I'm not having any positive results in achieving dry soft bouncy curls with any methods so far. If you go product less how does your hair look? Does it look presentable?

I do 100% of the time. However, I am experimenting with products as I am sick of having to avoid touching my hair while it dries!

My hair, absolutely no product - Going product less-imageuploadedbycurltalk1360609350.962048.jpg

It has the potential to look as good as this with no product too - Going product less-imageuploadedbycurltalk1360609617.329739.jpg

However, it usually looks like this by the end of the day

And this is today with product :S Going product less-imageuploadedbycurltalk1360609776.343920.jpg

Not a huge fan but it's more to do with the fact that I raked in the product thereby breaking up the clumps.

I have tried going without product a couple of times...it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be but my curls didn't feel as moisturized and they kind of expanded without any hold and got really big and fluffy looking although it still looked defined and pretty good. However I do prefer the look and feel of my curls with at least some type of leave in conditioner or cream based styler in it.

gorgoes curls! i just condish only style, with a touch of same sort of oil, it was doing so well for so long, but lately my hair hasnt been that good, ive been thinking i might need to use some sort of product. product free, i have alot of fizz and not much definition at all, though my curls are soft and feel good. its strange.

I just can't have my hair without product, or it would be a big mess

I always have mousse on my hair. And do the pinneaple so at the other day i just moisten my hair a little and add a little bit more of mousse in some parts to avoid frizz.

But seriously, my hair is a mess without any form of product on it.

I do, and the first day works out okay, but forget about second day hair.

I've done it before. But with Western Washington rain, my hair is a nice frizzy mess by the end of the day. I do enjoy the initial look and feel, though
