Default Hair One

I just went shampoo-less on Thursday. I'd been wanting to try the shampoo less method in a long time. I'd seen the WEN commercials but knew that it wasn't in my budget. A message board I belong to they'd talked about Sally Beauty selling a product called Hair One that was a WEN dupe. So I read reviews and while they were mixed I decided to give it a try. I've washed it once already and didn't notice a huge difference but I've been told to give it a while before I'll notice a huge difference as the hair has to get accustom to the no shampoo routine before you'll see the full effects.

I've got naturally wavy/curly hair. Its somewhere in between depends on the length of my hair. If my hair is short then its curly if its long its wavy to almost straight. Right now my hair is at my shoulders so its mostly wavy. I'm tryin to get so that it will be curly as it gets longer.

What I'd like to know is other than using about 15 pumps to wash and 2 pumps of my Hair One as a leave in what other sulfate free products would you recommend. I can't afford the prices of WEN. I'd like to try JessiCurl products. What I'm mainly looking for is styling products.

I should have been more clear when I originally posted this message.

Here are the ingredients for Hair One.
The one w/Olive Oil:

water, cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, amodimethicone, glycerine, aloe leaf juice, butylene glycol and anthemis nobilis flower extract, cofea arabica extract and vaccinium myrtillus fruit extract, roas roxburghii fruit extract, propylene glycol and rosemary leaf extract, olive fruit oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, hydrolyzed wheat protein, menthol, panthenol, behentrimonium methosulfate, BHT, Polysorbate 60, PEG 60 almond dimethylamine, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, citric acid, disodium EDTA, 1, 2-hexanediol and caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, sorbic acid, fragrance

It has a cone in it that is water soluble. It can build up on some finer haired curlies.

Any of the Suave Naturals conditioners are sulfate free and do not contain any 'cones. You don't mention if you are trying to be completely CG or not. If you are planning on being modified, there are many sulfate free low poos available and they would also prevent 'cones from building up on your hair. I use Jessicurl's hair cleanser, which has no sulfates or silicones. Samy's Escentia (sp?) and Everpure, are all sulfate free but contain some 'cones. Are you avoiding all silicones or just the non-water soluble ones?

Hair One is not a Wen dupe. Amodimethicone is way higher on their ingredients list.

Suave all the ones that I've tried dry out my hair and make it feel like straw. I'm just trying to find a healther alternative to my shampoo that doesn't cost me a ton. I've heard about the EverPure but also heard that it stinks. I'm more so trying to go sulfate and not necessarly "cone" free.

with either WEN or Hair one - you should be using waaaay more than 2 pumps to clean with. If your just detangling or using either as a leave in 2 pumps is way enough but to clean....moremoremoremoremore.

I started with WEN, pretty cool...outrageously expensive ( for my budget anyway!) but I liked the feeling of no sulfates. Then I tried Deva no poo...it was just meh. Then I discovered hair One, I liked it, it is NOT as good as WEN but it sooooo much cheaper it is very good -in my opinion- alternative. and a nice way to wean yourself off the poo!

I have since gone to CO washing only and I am my hair are quite happy

Good luck!

I'm using 2 pumps as a leave in conditioner, to wash it I'm using the recommended amount or more. I really need help with styling products, all of mine i currently own are sulfate or cone.

Default Hair One is great

I used Wen once when I was at a friend's house overnight and showered there. Nice, different. When I saw the price I decided to try Hair One for curly hair... love it! It is about $10/bottle but to stretch it out my girls and I just scrub our scalp with it to get the minty clean feeling, then use conditioner on the rest. It works great and our curls always look fantastic! We are all 2C/3A and Hair One allows us to go either curly or wavy/straight w/o using any other products!
