    Default New here!

    Hello and thank you for accepting me onto this forum. Iím not sure if this is the right place for my first post so feel free to move it. Iím afraid I do not understand the letters used to describe different hair types, so I cannot use that to describe my own hair. Itís longish, reaches the base of my shoulder blades. Slight wave, medium to fine but thereís a lot of it so it looks thick when it really, isnít if that makes sense.

    I just wash it in water, so I donít use any shampoo, conditioner or hair products (sometimes a tiny amount of coconut oil on the ends). No heat styling tools either. So very low maintenance. Not sure if thereís a current water only thread here? I recently wrote a short blog about my water only hair journey because several people didnít believe I didnít shampoo & condition it and with the lockdown they wanted to try it

    Hi Feral_!
    I'm new here too. Just noticed we posted a minute apart from each other.
    I'm interested to know if you scritch and preen in order to wash with water only? What's your secret for successfully going water only? 😊

    Hi! I’m currently washing with water properly once a week. I’m exercising daily (running / weights) so I rinse the underneath, or wait til the sweat is dry and brush my hair. No smell! Before I do the weekly wash in the shower I detangle with wide comb, do a head massage (scritch) and then brush my hair. I don’t preen. I know water only isn’t for everyone but it definitely works for me!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Look at the stickies in the forums, those will help you out loads.

    Also i ii or iii is to determine your thickness. You measure that by making a ponytail containing all of your hair, and measuring around the base (not including the elastic, but that's kind of a given).

    The wave pattern, maybe you should let us hairtype you (just shampoo, condition, lightly toweldry, then let it dry without ever brushing or combing). Pictures of the back of the head are best.
