Whatever happened to using plain ol shampoo and conditioner?

What happened to keeping it simple? I thought that's what worked for the LHCF elders? Whatever happened to the plain ol shampoo and conditioner regimen? Now we're using ourselves for personal experiments. Sometimes keeping it simple is the best thing you can do for your hair.

ok, I'm done.:ohwell:

Thats What I Went Back To Wash, Condition, Leave-In Conditioner, Oil Sometimes, And Grease Every Night. My Hair Is Doing Much Better.

There Was A Memeber Here Who Grew Her Hair To Waist Length By Shampooing Every Night. Does Anyone Remember Her?

I'm all for doing what works for you. If using 50/11 different products works for you, then who am I to judge?

I'm way past the days of feeling like I am doing something wrong because my regimen is not like the next chick. All we can do is share our regimens and if someone wants to give it a shot fine, but I don't believe that anyone should feel bad because they have an unpopular regimen but it works for them. After all, whenever I sit down to do my hair, it is only me and me alone who has to deal with my hair.

Keeping it simple doesn't work for everyone though. Some people may need to add a few extras to achieve healthy hair.

I also find KISS subjective - people may find that shampooing, cowashing, leave in conditioner, baggying, deep conditioning is keeping it simple because they don't find doing that a problem/hassle.

Wow. Every night????? details pleeze

There Really Isn't No Details I Shampoo Once With A Moisturizing Shampoo (Cheap One At That) And Regular Conditioner (To Detangle In The Shower). After I Get Out The Shower I'll Apply A Leave In Or Oil And Grease My Ends Then I Bun. Thats It.

In High School That Was My Regimen And My Hair Thrived.

That's basically all i use. BTW The old time lhcf'ers were all about experiments too. That's how the community got started. Nothing much has changed.

Well I think for me the recession has a lot to do with me going back to keeping it simple AND my experiments... My guy is doing juicing so it's easier and most cost effective for me to grab avocado and some evoo to make a conditioner than to go to the store and get one. Also shampoos and conditioners have so much STUFF even the "good" ones to where people who have allergies (probably from the crap in our food) can't use just shampoo and conditioner. As for shampooing every night... If you have an oily scalp and you don't pay your own water bill more power to ya I have an oily scalp but every night is not going to work.

I wish it worked. I love the idea of keeping it simple. BUT 35 years of plain old shampoo and conditioner never got me past neck length.

I was just thinking about this a few weeks ago. I used to wash my hair twice a month, grease the scalp every day and brush it twice a day and it would grow like crazy. It always grew thick and full. Im not looking to gain length yet but I may have to keep my old regime in mind when the time come

Without OUR collective experiments this forum would be nothing more than constant product reviews. I'm PROUD to be a member of a community of FEARLESS women who simply share what works for them on an individual basis & are ALWAYS at the fore front of the ongoing dialogue about hair on the web!

I agree bellebebe, Keeping it simple is nice,I think sometimes so ladies do take it to far with the reggies. I use to think some were seeing who could have the longest regimen :lol: Some take it to far for Example....

Example:
Pre Poo with Honey,milk,and Satin Silk Cotton Amino Acid
Wash With Aloe honey tar shampoo
Condish with Oatmeal Sulfer mix
Oil Rinse with just a simple oil that I found it is ''Olive Cucumber Emu Grape Oil'' You can find it at any health food store or OCEG for Short :lachen:
Then I use my leave in I put Protein spray on the back of my hair, Aphogee on the right,olive on the left and then I put sugar on the middle (The sugar made my hairsoooo silky........:ohwell:
After all of this I blow dry with my ''Like Air Drying'' blow dryer that I got at sallys
I start to flat Iron with my Chi on my front, Hana Elite on the right, GoldNHot on the left,Then I blowdry flat iron my hair.
So now that my hair is silky I take my HMKBBQ Oil (Honey,Mustard, Keratin,and Barbecue Sauce'' :lick::lick: for my hair and seal my hair.I got mine at walgreens.
I wrap it with my butter and shrimp clips that I got from the BSS.
Wrap it in my ''Not gonna break my Natural hair keep it nice'' head wrap.
And go to sleep It really is simple.



I could go on and on and on :lachen: but I think you guys get the point now. Just give me some Pantene,Aphogee or Kera Care and I'm good, but thats just me. Not knocking ladies that do this just having fun.

Don't forget Mare's mane, tail, and hoofs. Made from the sweat of long haired Caribbean donkey's, and crawfish algae extract, just to my scalp every other night, you can pick it up at any horse feed shop. :lachen:
