Skip the Poo

No, this is not another one of my toddler's poop stories.

I was at this dentist office earlier this week. I was reading a magazine while patiently waiting for the dentist to come check out my teeth. I stumbled across an article about skipping shampoo.

Apparently many people are completely skipping shampoo for many reasons. 1.) Save money 2.) Eco friendly- Fewer plastic bottles and chemicals 3.) Healthier and shinier hair.

It sounds kind of strange. The first two reasons make sense but how can not shampooing be healthier for your hair? According to the article shampoo strips  your hair of it's natural oils. Hmmm. Ok, that makes sense.

I think I'll give it a try (when I run out of the bottle I already have.) I could probably go without shampoo but there is no way I could skip the conditioner.

What do you think? Could you skip the poo?


  1. ugh no way. I have to shampoo my hair or it turns into a big ball of shinny oily nastiness.

  2. I only shampoo 1 or 2 times a week. I use a dry-shampoo spray in between washings. My hair is way healthier and les frizzy than it has ever been.


  3. I agree with the article, except you should only shampoo every three days. I actually met someone who said their friend only used conditioner for 30 days and took a picture every day to show how much healthier her hair was, but if your like me, and your hair actually gets really oily on it's own, then every three days should be enough.

  4. Not for me- shinier would=greasier. Yuck! I'd love to skip a day, but I don't want to look like I didn't wash my hair.
