Using plain water as a conditioner

I made an incredible discovery last week. I got extremely off schedule with my client timing. My natural client had to sit room temperature with a plastic cap on for about 45 minutes. I had shampooed her with Pureology Nanoworks shampoo a few times then skipped conditioning. Amazingly, the water alone seemed to soften her natural tresses without any conditioner being applied.

We were purposely skipping the conditioning step because we found if the hair is too soft that it would not hold the curls. So her hair ended up soft from the "tap" water. I also have to admit that our city has "soft water" running through our tap versus hard water in other states.

If you live in a "soft water" area, then consider just sitting with a wet head in a plastic cap for about an hour while you complete household chores. You might save on having to buy so much conditioner.


  1. Great tip! I used the Pureology shampoo and the Joico Detangler like you suggested and my hair actually had body and maintained the curls!

  2. Goodie Goodie Gumdrops! Smile. I am excited to hear this! I love both of those products!!!!
