How long will you go between shampoos?

April 29, 2009


A friend passed this article on to me today about the “no poo” movement (read: eco-conscious AND beauty tipsters who are ditching shampoo for healthier hair).

I totally believe people should go longer between shampoos since your natural oils do condition your hair — but I mean like, a couple days. Months? I’m not sure I could do it.

I don’t know though, is it just a social taboo, or are we trained to think we have to shampoo multiple times a week? Hard core environmentalists love that no more shampoo = less chemicals and less plastics being used. But what about products like Concept Vert that I mentioned are making a move towards even eco-friendly recyclable packaging? You can even return the bottle to the salon to them. It’s an interesting topic though!

Read the article and let me know what you think — Would you be able to be a, umm, “no poo-er”?

    Ya know, I’m actually considering trying this and washing with baking soda instead. I have super thick/curly/dry hair and if I wanted I could probably go a week without washing my hair but don’t bc of the gross factor. However, if this makes my hair more manageable and doesn’t require me to use the straight iron daily, I’m Down!
