Everyone's doing it, but is going product-free right for your hair?

If you’re reading this article, then I commend you for thinking about going completely product free. It’s a challenge that many men and women are taking after looking at the long list of ingredients on the back of their shampoo bottles. The fact is, no matter how amazing those celebrities look in commercials, store bought shampoos are full of processed ingredients that are doing more harm to your hair than good.

Hi! I'm Susonnah Gonzalez. I write, work and live in Austin, TX. I began my wavy hair journey in college, which is when I really began to explore the needs of wavy hair and the products that work best with it. Every day is different with my hair but every day I learn something new!

I mean if you want to walk around with a huge triangle head, go ahead and go product free! Curly hair is often very dry and needs moisturizing products to replenish moisture levels, and other products to define the curls. The logic in that article is horrible. "If you don't understand how the ingredients in a product work, just cut out all products!" That doesn't make sense. Companies spend a lot of time and money formulating products designed to make hair look good (whether curly or straight), even if we don't understand how all of them work. I suppose this is more possible if you are using a natural alternatives for your products... but that does not sound product free to me. It seems like this method would be more accessible for people with straight or nearly straight hair types.
