shampoo:conditioner

In my household, the shampoo is always noticeably and consistently used faster than the conditioner, no idea why as I assume shouldn't it be roughly the same? How's it in your home? Poll added.

because you only need to use a bit of conditioner compared to shampoo, like half the amount each time. Also, if you buy those sulfate-free shampoos, you don't really need conditioner anymore.

The last time I used either shampoo or conditioner was more than two months ago. I have discovered that a daily vigorous scrub with my fingers using nothing more than the warm water in the shower leaves my hair looking better and healthier than it ever has before. My wife agrees! Give it a try.

I stopped using conditioner because I found my hair was softer but a bit greasier.

My hairstylist told me not to use conditioner because it was not suitable for my skin/scalp type.

Plus, people only need a little bit of conditioner relative to shampoo.

I wonder if there's a 'proper' way quantity-wise for using both? I assume it should be roughly equal but actually wouldn't shampoo be used less since a little dab creates a big lather vs conditioner needs to cover the whole strand of hair?

To the 2nd person, maybe we have the same hair type, oily? I could go w/o conditioner too but if you wanna use it for more shine, smoothness, etc, gotta avoid the scalp and concentrate on the strands.

Yes I have oily skin.

I have found that my hair is shinier now than before and then change is two fold IMO. I stopped using hot water to shower and clean my skin (dries me out) so I use like warm water. Not cold though.

And after I do my skin care (my method is to use my products and put it in my hand, rub a bit and then pat my face to apply), I then take my palms and just brush my hair since I hate products on my palm I might as well put it on my damp hair.

It doesn't smell. My wife agrees, she says it smells just fine. Like I said, I wash it every day, but just with warm water and scrubbing with my fingers, no shampoo. I wish I had discovered this years ago!

Are you trolling me bro? How can that possibly smell good? Solely water, not even residue soap from showering?

I wouldn't have believed it myself if I hadn't tried it. The natural oil produced by your scalp is there for a purpose; it protects your hair and is a natural conditioner. Why shampoo it away, only to replace it with artificial conditioner that costs money and doesn't even do as good of a job? I also wouldn't have believed that it would smell good either, but my wife confirms that it smells just fine. And believe me, if some part of my body stinks, she tells me.

I dunno man. Anyway, going w/o shampoo and conditioner won't work for me, my hair's too oily, need something to break that down.

Yeah washing with just water won't do it for oily skin. I tried to even shampoo less often and it just didn't work for me after 1 month of trying.

Apparently your scalp will overproduce oil for about two weeks after you stop shampooing. But after that it will balance itself out. That’s why many people who try this give up, they can’t wait two weeks.

TX for the info, I'll let someone be the Guinea pig on this one though. I can't imagine not washing my hair (in traditional sense) skipping a day, never mind over 2 weeks lol.

I don’t wash/condition like people with non curly hair do. I co-wash most of the time and cleanse/low-poo maybe once a week. I deep condition once every 1-2 weeks. On non DC days I use conditioner. My products all run out at different times.
