If I'm not mistaken, her method is less is more. When her hair was short she would just wash and condition, that's it. No gel, no nada. The last time I checked her Fotki (which was probably 8 months ago) she said that she was using products in her hair. Its easier to go "Bohemian" when you have a TWA or at least short hair. If I did that to my hair (I'm APL) it would probably take over the world or something LOL I need to tame it.

I think it's a great method, a lot of people swear by it. I agree with Maria that it's probably easier on shorter hair.

I just tried to look it up again, but I guess she removed it from her fotki?

I think I've always liked the "less-is-more" concept re: hair, but it wasn't until recently, at nine months post-chop, that I've decided to implement it. My PJ traits have disappeared -- three cheers from my wallet!



20-some years ago, we didn't know as much about products BUT my sweet Mom cultivated my natural hair, with great results, prior to the straightening comb and relaxers. So I figure, why not revisit some of her techniques, minus the mineral oil, intense heat styling, and other harsh chems?

I need to update my fotki... but at this point I basically only use V05 to co-wash (but may give that up too), OR occasional baking soda and water or Chagrin Valley soap to cleanse, ACV rinse to clarify, and pure shea butter mixed with some oil for styling/moisture. I LOVE this routine!

I do the Bohemian method now since I have a TWA (I've been doing now for about 5 months), what it is is you co- wash your hair & squeeze out excess water, then apply a little more conditioner for hold. Then, leave it 2 dry on its own. No heat.. When it dries fluff. Maybe once or twice out the week I have a moisture night. It works very well for me. Actually it -to me- defines my curl better. I have a cabinet full of product that I don't use because I just use Elucence.. BUT, as I see my hair gaining a little more lentgh/fullness I have to use more condish which means that I'll soon have to start using product.. (or maybe it's due to the weather change) But you should give it a try you may like it..

You can use any co-wash condish or DT.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
HTH!!

everyone has basically summed things up for you.

i remember when she first posted her "bohemian method" on another site. thats what i had been doing to my hair around the same time she began sharing how well it was working for her so it just seemed like common sense!

it does work well for me even though i dont have short hair. its past APL when stretched and i basically stick with the less is more routine because its easier for me. i suck at doing protective styles, i hate doing them, and i hate the way my hair looks in them. and im really not into the pudding/custard look anymore so thats why i really embraced the less is more attitude.

ditto 2 years ago, I didn't think it would ever work for me. Now its the only way

bohemian method is fine for me if i do buns or twists (all i use is a leave-in and moisturizer)....but for a wash n go....boho is a no go for me. i've tried it for a few weeks and didn't really like the way my hair responded. while it was soft, it also got a lot more tangled and knotty because the curls were not clumped. my hair only clumps with product. I wish it worked for me though!

same here. My hair needs different products for different styles. Plus i'll always be a PJ.
