i've used shampoo just once in two years.
water is just fine
do you use shampoo? why?
to wash my hair
remove grease, dirt, sweat, bacteria, smells - same as with your body...
i've done it before and my hair is nicer condition but it kinda smells like 'wet hair' after you rinse it.
but i've seen people's hair when they don't wash it. And it looks fucking gross.
i mean you still wash it thoroughly you just don't use shampoo
but they shower daily
it's just the most confusing thing i've ever encountered, were you raised by apes?
Then you don't get to pretend you're in a really strange bukkake video though.
I'd have thought putting it in your mouth would be worse than on your head, and It's not like you can brush your teeth with water?
please don't link me to any pseudo-science or anything from the daily mail.
I'm not trying to argue, I just wonder where people hear these things - I work in cosmetics and there has never been a conclusive test as far as things go?
can't be arsed searching for the link though
"Some products containing SLES have been found to also contain traces (up to 279 ppm) of 1,4-dioxane. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends that these levels be monitored. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies 1,4-dioxane to be a probable human carcinogen (not observed in epidemiological studies of workers using the compound, but resulting in more cancer cases in controlled animal studies)"
Many sites also claim that its a myth, but I'm of the opinion if its a slight risk that can be avoided, then avoid it
is using something new and untested and not proved to be any better or worse.
Also, as I pointed out - There is no conclusive proof - No more than the accusation of using a cellphone or anything similar causes cancer
"no conlusive proof' no.
But most certainly reason to be concerned or at least suspicious.
and lack of proof, if anything that makes me feel safer rather than more at risk tbh.
In what dosage? And administered how? Do either of those bear any resemblance to the kind of exposure you get from shampoo? How does the one study fit into the wider picture of research? What do the meta-studies say?
better than the normal shit, teeth feel glassy and clean all day.
I nearly got one from holland and barrett the other day but I was sceptical as to whether it would be any good for my hair.

but not SLES, which is good.
but yeah as a QI list the 'natural' things are pretty low down.
both sodium laureth and lauryl sulfate are "naturally derived" in that they're made from coconut or palm oil.
Which is secondary to the fact that there are loads of "natural" chemicals which are spectacular irritants and even cytotoxins so to deduce that something is "naturally derived" means it's inherently better or safer than those nasty "synthetic chemical" bastards is ludicrous.
But a very effective marketing technique.
aspartame is perfectly safe
Laureth is also a suspected carcinogen.
not such an effective marketing technique
and you are right
- genuine facebook text-jpeg i've seen doing the rounds with a list of 'deadly' 'chemicals' -__-
mainly because my sister did and her hair is gorgeous.
Before then my hair needed washing every day (although I didn't because I knew it would make things worse in the long term. I had to use an awful lot of dry shampoo on day two) Now it only needs doing twice a week, with no need for dry shampoo in between. And my hair feels soft and thick and lovely.
I'd recommend it to anyone.
I think it's only available in boots and Sainsburys.
Shampoo is full of utter shit, SLS's and such which they use as industrial surfectants.
I nick my girlfriend's shampoo and it looks much better now. May depend on the kind of hair you have, but mine is much more manageable after shampooing and conditioning. Doesn't stick up in the mornings for a start. I read somewhere that shower gel is in fact the biggest con. it is just soap, runs out really quickly and is expensive. I buy bars of soap now for less than 50p which last for months.
Though I have been tempted previously to not use shampoo and go through that whole stage of never washing my hair but it's just that stage where it's horribly greasy that puts me off.
But it always made my hair go flat and horrid and dead greasy, and by the end of the day I'd be running to buy shampoo even if it meant forgoing eating
by purchasing a shampoo BAR from Lush. Its like a bar of soap but its shampoo and gets well frothy and makes my hair amazing. I want to buy another one they have which has coconut oil in it and its a shampoo and conditioner all in one bar.
They're great. I only wash my hair twice a week though as it doesn't really need it. PLanning on starting running again soon though, so I'll need to wash it more often after that, obvs.
the presenter stopped washing her hair to see what would happen. Like wishpig said upthread, after a few days it went shitty and greasy for a time then corrected itself with the natural oils produced by the scalp. The hair was in good condition afterwards, soft and manageable.
I bet she shit-stank though
it's not particularly bad and doesn't smell of anything when dry
then it's a given
JFC, you guys.
For the record (someone's probably already mentioned) if you're not going to use shampoo you shouldn't even wash your hair in water. Instead brush it daily really well and the natural oils will clean it.
Who has looked at 'Shampoo is unnecessary' and think of 'just use real poo'?
Only a chauvinistic pub shitter would.
would have expected better from the pub shitter
I use so much Dax Wax (Red). If I didn't wash every day my pillow would probably be see through with the amount of grease.
I'd forgotten about that stuff. Absolute bitch to wash out.
Water can't volumise.
Consequently I have not showered.
Consequently my hair looks awful.
Because it dries out skin (which it does, if you use shit soap). But yeah, never. She just splashes a bit of water on her hands, if she needs to. If she needs to.
She'll probably get pink eye.
She often wears the same clothes a few days in a row and sleeps fully dressed. Also, apparently, you don't need to wash 'that often'.
in fact, even some animals use shampoo....you're a monster
