Water-Only Hair Washing: My Journal Entries

August 17, 2015

Water Only Hair Washing; or the WOHW Method.  Some also call it the Water Hair Washing Routine, some do it as a temporary try-it-out method, and others do it as a permanent method of hair care.  It is a method by which you are using only warm/hot water, as well as massaging techniques, to loosen and distribute your sebum down your strands to provide moisturizing and conditioning properties.  That is just a quick definition – there are many more details to this method, and I will share as much as I can with you!  But for now, the beginning – why did I start this journey and how far have I come?

Old-New Blog

August 14, 2015

You’ve probably heard the saying “out with the old, in with the new”, but for this post I’m going to revise that saying to “in with the old, bring in the new.”  Huh?  You’re probably saying as you scratch your head in bewilderment (too much?  I need to tone it down, you say?)…
