I’m Off of Shampoo

It’s been a month since I last shampoo’d my hair, and I don’t plan on doing it anytime soon.

Ask my girlfriend, and she’ll tell you that it smells fine and feels thicker than it used to.

To me, it feels a lot softer, and it stays where I put it better, which I think is called manageability in the industry. It also looks more voluminous than it used to. The biggest upside imo is that my showers are faster and more convenient.

When I’m in the shower, I do the same motion I used to do to rinse out shampoo. Basically, I massage my hair under the running water for roughly 30 seconds.

Most accounts detail an extra-greasy transition period of 1-2 weeks. Mine lasted about 4-5 days, and was barely noticeable. I was worried I’d look like Danny Zuko, but I didn’t. If anything, my hair looks more natural now.

A word for any out there interested in ditching the goo themselves – make sure to remove your bottle from the shower. After roughly 30 showers, I still reach for the bottle most of the time. I’m sure that if the bottle were available, I would have shampooed without realizing at least a few times.

Next Move? Ditch the face wash.

I’m Out of Shampoo

I’m not in the habit of posting shopping lists here, or asking for free samples from companies (though I’ll take them). So why let the world know that I’m out of shampoo? Because I’m going to see what happens if I don’t buy any more.

A quickly growing sector believes that they are cleaner if they forgo the sudsy stuff. If I like the results I get from skipping shampoo, I’ll next try dropping soap. This all sounds pretty bare-foot drum circle-y to me, so I need to ease in slowly.

See the second half for links and discussion on the subject.
