So I’m sitting in my room one day looking at a half full bottle of water when I think, “Hmm I wonder if I can wash my hair with this…” As you guys may soon realize, I’m a google addict, so I went to google to see if any other people had tried it. Turns out I’m far from alone! All I saw was raving & recommendations for using bottled/distilled/filtered water at least as a final rinse.
So today I decided to give it a try. First I deep conditioned with ORS hair mayo as always. Then I cowashed with V05 Moisture Milks. I rinsed that out in the shower then did my final rinse with bottled water. I used a good bottle & a half to make sure my hair was thoroughly rinsed.
After I t shirt dried my hair I could tell the difference immediately! My hair was smooth, silky, & sooooo shiny!! I added a little leave in & sealed the moisture in with a new oil blend I’m trying (coconut, castor, olive & tea tree oil) which is also AMAZING!
I can’t believe how soft & nice my hair feels. Like, I literally can’t keep my hands out I it. It’s pretty much all the way dry now & it feels great! The ends are a bit puffy because I air dried, but overall my hair did well.
I’m not telling you to go out & buy cases of water every month, but I would definitely look into an alternative. I already have a Brita pitcher so I’ve just decided to filter my tap water one week at a time. You could also get a water softener or a shower filter. Some people even use rain water! All I have to say is at least try it once. I’m sure you’ll live the results. And if you don’t, you won’t have lost much anyway.
Happy hair styling!
