No Shampoo Ok?

Is it bad that I don't use shampoo? I see people say shampoo isn't good to use or isn't good to use top much but if you feel like your hair is dirty you can use it. To be honest I feel like my hair is fine and clean without shampoo sp all I use is conditioner.

Hi, I think that that's perfectly fine. The purpose of shampoo is to clean your hair from the accumulation of residues of all sorts, dirt and the accumulation of natural oils. If your hair don't feel dirty nor greasy then it's ok not to shampoo it. By the way lots of conditioners contain some sort of mild cleansing agents. That's the base of the co-wash method. However depending on your conditioner and your other styling products composition you may want to use a clarifying shampoo once in a while . That's because if they contain ingredients like mineral oils, petrolatum, paraffin, heavy waxes and oils, non water soluble silicones...  you'll likely end up with built-up in the long run.Click here to read a basic guide about co-washClick here for another article about co-washClick here to know more about built-up and how to prevent it
