Stoney Uses The Boar Bristle Brush To Distribute His Sebum



by Mr. Stoney

Hello. I probably have been washing my hair with “mostly” water only, for at least, 2 years now. I say mostly because it’s kind of been “on and off”. Sometimes shampoo, sometimes not. Most of the time I just washed my hair with soap. It was never really a big thing for me and some of my family thought it was just disgusting.

I really have not been keeping track, but as of this writing, I have been completely “Water Only Washing my Hair” for at least a year now. My Wife has been doing it for close to 18 Months and the Kids joined in somewhere between the both of us.

Well, firstly I’d like to say that my hair doesn’t smell and I haven’t encountered any Mold or Mildew. I understand that sometimes you need to really clean your hair and that’s why they’re people out there who create “Natural Shampoos” for you. You do not need to use the Commercial Chemicals what-so-ever. In fact, my hair has actually gotten stronger and longer using the “Water Only Hair Washing Methods”. I think it’s gotten longer because I’ve been experiencing less breakage and it’s growing faster than it has in the past. Look, I’m a Guy, and I ain’t getting any younger. I thought that at this point in my life, I would be losing hair, not continuing to have it grow. I’m not supposed to be thinking about this stuff….but I am. It’s very interesting and intriguing.

Secondly, all I do is wash my hair with cold water. That’s it! That’s my secret. This is what works for me. It may not be for everyone. Look, I’m all down with the “Natural Hair & Water Only Hair Washing Methods and their strong Movements within our Worlds Culture, which is continuing here in 2015, but that doesn’t mean that I have to follow just one persons methods. I have something that works for me and no one can say that it’s not. I really don’t have much to say on this subject, but if you Check out the Blog, (if you’re not already here), because she’ll give you tons of good, needed and quality information, as I’m just a Pebble in the Ocean.

Before I finish. I’d like to say this; There’s a lot of “So Called” Professionals and non Professional people out there, who might say that, washing your hair with water only is impossible if you want healthy hair. They’d probably say something similar to:

“You need to use hot water to open up your pores and wash all the dirt away including your “Natural Oils” and loosen up your hair follicles and get it squeaky clean by washing away all of those white flakes that may actually be the Sebum you need to get your hair to grow. Then after that, “slap some Conditioner in your hair then Shampoo it, or is it the other way around, and don’t forget the special rules like for people with longer hair cause they would use Shampoo first then Conditioner…or is it the other way around”.


  • I’m just telling you what I know and what I’ve experienced, which is Over 1 Year and:
  • No Shampoo
  • No Conditioner
  • No Soap
  • No Smelly Hair
  • Less Breakage
  • Continued and Steady Hair Growth
  • Keeping More Money in my Pocket

That’s it for now!

    Hi, I am sorry to hear of the illness your son has been going thru, I will keep him in my prayers. Which shower system are using or your prefernce, I find that my natural is very dry, and my skin I will be trying the water only method again. I got frustrated before, but since, I am wearing my hair in natural state I figured let’s give it shot, I am sick of buying products.

    I often use the mud shampoo are those okay when doing water only, I have the greek seeks, I use those all the time and aloe. I will try the flaxseed. Any other pointers. Thank you

      Hi. Thank you for your prayers, I truly appreciate it. I am currently using this exact filter: Culligan WSH-C125 Wall-Mount 10,000 Gallon Capacity Filtered Showerhead, Chrome Finish (it’s about $30.00), I bought mine from Lowes, but you can also get it from Using a mud wash and other natural products that are food and plant base are all fine. Flaxseed gel will strip sebum though. The trick is to make sure you’re using the right product for the amount of sebum you have in your hair. If you have very small amounts of sebum you’ll want to avoid certain natural cleansers and or conditioners; like amla powder, cassia, henna etc. You would only choose the previous herbal powders mentioned if you have medium to large amounts of sebum on you hair (you don’t want to strip your sebum). If you want to use the mud wash test it on a small section of hair before you commit to doing your entire head. Apple Cider Vinegar, banana baby food, rice shampoo, aloe vera ect. will work when you have a small amount of sebum (light layer).Hope this helps.
