Have you ever tried this method? Just cleaning your hair with conditioner that doesn't have SLS, ALES, silicons or alkohol in it?

 

I've just started it and my hair feels sooo much softer and looks much more healthy!

 

The conditioner I use is "Organic care ultra miracle" which is an organic and vegan product. I love it!

Well, there's a list on the internet for swedish brands (i'm from Sweden) but since I live in Australia I had to check the ingredients in every bottle and found this one. Try to google and see if you get a list of brands in your country? I think you'll find one.

I've heard that WEN is good, but you acculy can find better things 'cause wen makes your hair a bit greasy after a while.

 

Do you have a "last shampoo" to use if someone put silikons or something in it, and do you know a good shampoo in that case?

Any shampoo by organix is good.I love their shampoo it doesn't really lather and it gets rid of greasiness while making hair soft and shiny.My favorites are keratin oil, Moroccan argan oil, and biotin.

I do this.  I use Tresemme silicone free conditioners and sulfate free shampoo and conditioner by Nature's Gate.  I go to a Devachan salon so they never use silicones on me...don't have to worry about washing out silicones with harsh sulfates after a haircut :)  You should check out www.naturallycurly.com.  Tons of information on there about the sulfate and silicone free method.

Not necessarily.  There's a whole movement out there of people only using conditioner to wash their hair.  As long as you don't use any hair products with silicones in it, conditioner is sufficient.  You have to do a last wash with a sulfate shampoo to get out all the silicones first before you start though.  It's especially good for people with curly hair.  If you have dry hair you'll notice a huge difference after only a few days...no more frizz, much softer and shinier.  Silicones cause buildup in your hair...which causes grease.  But they can only be removed with sulfates.  Sulfates are in almost every drugstore shampoo.  They're very drying..and the dryer you make your hair, the more grease it produces to compensate...kind of a vicious cycle.

I tried that, but I didn't feel like it was getting my hair clean enough.

I'm kind of obsessed with my hair and I read a lot about haircare, so I've of course heard about the big silicone controversy and tried to get used to using only silicone-free products like Aubrey Organics and the like, but to be honest my hair just looked like crap and it was impossible to detangle and lost all its shine. So I went back to using products with silicone and my hair is back to normal and looks really healthy.

I use a mild shampoo once or twice a week (generally based on situations where I use product, or if I go swimming etc.), just around the roots, and then just rinse/condition the rest of the time. It has definitely made my hair shinier and I have less problems with greasy roots/split-ends.

the shampoo is what makes your hair not be greasy so you need that 

There is fat in the conditioner and fat makes fat disappear. You only have to massage your har for like 5 minutes so everything get out of your hair. It works!

I would at least get a clarifying shampoo so that you don't get product build up.

I would try Lush's I love juicy. It's all natural.

Shampooing all the time wrecks my hair; I don't think I could get away with not shampooing at all, I use only conditioner every other time.

I use shampoo like once a month if my hair feels SUPER gross.

I have the thickest, darkest, curliest hair in the history of hairs and it's constantly trying to be frizzy and weird. Discovering that I can wash my hair with conditioner has changed my life.

 

Not to be smug but my hair is fucking beautiful now lol.
