I’m on a journey to minimalism, please be patient with me. I’m decluttering over 60% of my collection this time round. I have big plans for decluttering so so much of makeup collection so please stay tuned for that!!

Hi, I’m Mel! I run Aussie Beauty Talk. I love playing with makeup and skincare, and am a beauty junkie. Honesty is my policy and I try to give the perspective from Asian skin in an Australian marketplace.

    Is it gross that I’ve stopped using shampoo and conditioner? Maybe not forever but since confinement I haven’t used those products for a month and my hair has never looked better. It’s thicker, softer and shinier (maybe from the hair grease lol). I just let my natural oils come through and wash with plain water. I don’t do that for Joey either and he has great hair although he doesnt have much of it ๐Ÿคฃ It just made me think about all the hair products I wouldn’t have to buy if I stopped using them altogether!

      Melissa Gold thanks for all the tips!!

      @Aussie Beauty Talk I didn’t wash my hair for a month (as in no water at all) then after 30 days I washed it with plain water and it honestly does feel like I had used shampoo and conditioner as it feels the same now! But I think it depends on your hair. You will inevitably go through a “gross period” haha but with a bit of dry shampoo and tying it up it will help you persist!!

      @Aussie Beauty Talk I started training my hair a few months before knowing that I wouldn’t be able to wash it during confinement so started researching how others who stopped using it have done it. I started by pushing out the days between washing slowly so my hair could adjust. Things I found really helped include doing a scalp massage every day and also brushing it thoroughly to help distribute the oils. On the days it would look like a greasy mess I’d go in with dry shampoo and then plait my hair. I wouldn’t say I have a sensitive scalp but I do get a bit of dandruff although not to the point where you can see it all over my shoulders! I think it has helped with it a bit. It’s early days but I want to keep it up given my hair seems to be coping well!

      Did it take long till it felt normal? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • Melissa Gold says:

      @Aussie Beauty Talk I swear it’s a total myth that we need it! We have just conditioned our hair to get used to it!

    With the influx of new products, it made me stop buying, start thinking about consumerism and overproduction, waste and depleting resources, and made me turn into minimalism as well lol

    • Aussie Beauty Talk says:

      Thatโ€™s so great. It is so ridiculous how many new products are pumped out and how much waste there is. Iโ€™m so keen to finish up using all the products I have stockpiled then only have 1 or 2 products per category at a time.
