jkitty92 asked: Hey, I was wondering if you might be able to help me with some hair related things? I have short, thin hair that I don't wash much since I shaved it March this year. I don't really want to start going back to the way I was washing my hair before the shave and I have heard good things about cleansing conditioners. Any suggestions on whether this is a good idea/ brand suggestions?
OOooh, shaved head! Love it.
Cleansing conditioners are really interesting. I’ve tried a few and been fairly pleased with the results - but I have massively thick hair that is curly and dry. As much as the marketing says otherwise, I’m not entirely sure that all cleansing conditioners are equally good for all hair types.
That isn’t to say I don’t think they would work on short, thin hair - I just think you might have to focus on something specifically for fine hair. There’s a Cucumber Aloe cleansing conditioner by WEN that has gotten a lot of good reviews.
(I’ve tried their Fig cleansing conditioner and I think it would be way too heavy for your hair. But I kind of loved it.)
Also, when you do try it, start with less product than you think you need! The first few times, I went through way more product than I really needed to. Use a little and then rub in circles and stick your head under the water for a second to help distribute it.
Hopefully we can get some other brand suggestions for you, too!
