What Happens When You Stop Using Shampoo For 31 Days?

No shampoo


How often do you wash your hair? Could you give it up? Could you give up shampoo for 30 days? I never in a million years could! Margaret and Katherine, from Tree Huggers, did an experiment to see what it would be like to go without and what alternatives they could use instead of ‘poo.’ The results will surprise you!

I know it’s not for me, but I really enjoyed learning about their experiences. I have a handful of friends that have sworn off shampoo altogether. They love the ‘no shampoo’ method! What about you? Each hair type is different and the results will be different for everyone.

At this point in my life I have gone from washing my hair every day to every other day. I’m all about the dry shampoo and non-chemical hair products but I think that’s the best I can do for now. If I had time to hide from the world for three weeks I might be able to try the transition. My hair, like Maggie’s, is fine and looks like a stringy mess if I don’t wash it. Health.com also has some helpful tips on how to get shiny healthy hair that might be a little easier that 30 days without shampoo. Find them here.
