Why I Stopped Washing My Hair With Shampoo
I have a confession to make.
I stopped washing my hair.
Before you scroll away, let me add that it’s been one of the most transformative liberations on my selfcare journey.
I used to think I had to wash my hair every day and the whole process from start to finish took approximately 30 minutes outta my day. It was a time sucker.
I stopped washing my hair purely out of sheer experimentation. To see if the curly girl hair method would work for my greasy-dried-out-limp-hair-that-lacked-luster-and-stylability. (If you haven't heard of this method, here is an article for beginners: How To Do The Curly Girl Method For Beginners).
Turns out. It does!!
Seriously, my hair has never been healthier, has never had so much shine, volume & pizazz aaaand it has saved me hours in my week + my colour stays put longer.
Another big bonus is that I am committed to only using a natural plant-based product. I am on a mission to eliminate as many toxic, synthetic chemicals to my body, home and the environment as possible - and this is a HUGE ONE!

Here is my easy hair care plan that will save you time and reduce the chemicals in your life:
1. Stopped using shampoo
2. I only ‘wash’ with a huge gob of doTERRA conditioner. Really massage it in!
3. Hardly wash any of it out
4. Towel, then air dry
5. Use DIY dry shampoo to soak up scalp grease (Message me for the recipe on Instagram).
6. massage my scalp with my fingers everyday, morning & night. Sometimes I use a natural bristle brush to do this too.

Hi, I'm Melissa 👋🏻
If you hang around me long enough I will convince you that you are worth anything your heart desires. Yes, anything!
I live on an acreage on a small island on the West Coast of Canada (Salt Spring Island) with my husband, two boys and animals.
I pump my tires on empowering women to make themselves a priority, and living an intentionally clean and natural lifestyle- I love to live sustainably and I like to DIY the shit out of everything.
When I was employed, I quickly learned that I hated working on other people's terms. I disliked trading my precious time to build somebody else's dream and I wanted to be the one raising my babies at home with me. The essential oil industry has allowed me to build my dream life and dream business from home.
You can find me on Instagram for daily tips for self-care, essential oil education, and lots of laughter.
