No: Water by itself will not be effective at getting rid of oils, dirt etc from hair. A number of hypoallergenic shampoos available for people with sensitivities. At age 25 why does your mother have to buy your shampoo?

I apologize, I did not realize that. You should discuss the hypoallergenic shampoos with your mother or order on line
