Since I gave up shampoo almost one year ago, I’ve been trying to keep you updated on the status. Well, I love it. It’s cheaper and my hair is nicer. It’s fabulous. It’s good for me, my scalp, and the environment.

I admitted earlier in the summer that I’ve started to use conditioner occasionally. With the humidity in the air, I couldn’t seem to get a pick through my hair. When I stopped using shampoo, I stopped needing conditioner to pick my hair, but this all changed with the summer months.

Last week I was picking (sans conditioner) when one of the bristles on my pick broke. I continued until another one flung itself at my shower drain. My pick was done. I trashed it and started using another “Ouch Less” comb, unable to find a pick. It wasn’t ouch less when it broke in half in my hand.

Needless to say, lately, as the summer tapers off, I’ve been using conditioner more than not.
