In Beth’s Call it a Day interview, shared earlier today, she mentions only being able to wash her hair every 4 or 5 days, and that she would have thought that was disgusting before it became her reality. When I read that, it reminded me of three different articles that have come my way in the last month or two.
One is about people who have stopped washing their hair at all with traditional hair products and only use baking soda and vinegar. (The article is from 2 years ago, and you may have seen a dozen similar ones since then, because they’re all over the place. Do a search for “the no shampoo method” if you’d like to read more. The first time I read about the no shampoo method was in 2012, and it was from a hairdresser’s perspective.)
People who have gone the no-shampoo route seem to really love it, and rave about how much more well-behaved, predictable, shiny, and healthy their hair is. Though it takes awhile to get there; they all talk about a tricky transition period. Apparently it takes a month or two for the hair and scalp to adjust to the shampoo-free routine.
