    Hair Oil

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I don't shampoo or condition my hair, and I absolutely LOVE the body and texture of my hair when it is in its natural state.

    Here's my problem...

    I also love having pink hair. That means about once a month I go to my stylist and she colors my hair- complete with a shampoo.

    Ugh.

    It takes about a week to get my hair back to its natural texture, and it drives me CRAZY all the while. Any suggestions on what I can use on my hair to either stimulate the natural oils, or to simulate them until my scalp does its thing?

    Coconut and olive oils are a no go. They're too greasy and make my hair look yucky.

    Have you ever tried doing an egg treatment? I'm also no shampoo/conditioner right now, and on one of the 'not washing hair' threads, someone recommended this. I tried it once (whipped up an egg, worked it through my hair, let it sit awhile, then rinsed out with water). Felt pretty good.

    Also, I haven't yet tried this myself, but I read about a banana milk hair mask on Crunchy Betty that sounded killer:

    I haven't. I'm not trying to get my hair clean or anything. The opposite in fact. I need to grease it up a little, without it being oily.

    I use a mix of egg yolks and coconut cream on my hair. The coconut cream has the oils in it but not so oily as the straight CO. There is also a lot of fat in the yolks.

    Argan Oil works Realllly well ... Not cheap but it only takes a lil bit.
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    I have the same problem (only mine is purple). I use a small amount of almond oil, like 4-5 drops smoothed over but keep it away from my scalp. I still takes several days to recover, but it's not as dry and frizzy.

    Does your stylist have to 'poo to dye? I mean, will your hair's oils interfere with the process? You could ask her to try just putting the dye in your hair and then rinsing it out...once. To see what happens.

    I just got my hair done over the weekend as well and the texture is wrecked because of course I don't put in all the product they do nor do I have time for a fancy morning blowout. =P

    I've thought about asking them to skip shampooing but honestly it feels nice when they do it, and massage the scalp and so on. Its a nice experience. :3
