While many people in the United States now wash their hair on a near-daily basis, there are others who've joined the "No Poo" movement and given up shampoo entirely. Is that a good idea? Well, here's what could happen when you give up on washing your hair.
One of the benefits of skipping daily shampoo sessions is the return of nourished hair. While you may think conditioner is the best thing you can use to prevent dry hair, our scalps are actually pretty proficient at doing that all on their own. The body naturally produces oils, and while those oils are responsible for making our hair feel greasy in between washes, it's also what naturally hydrates our hair.
When shampooing your hair, you may be cleansing it, but you're also stripping your scalp of those valuable oils and ultimately, what it needs to make your hair shiny.
And, really, who doesn't love shiny hair? Unfortunately, your scalp is not exactly great at evenly distributing oil, which is why the tips of your hair can look dry while your roots will look mighty greasy when you skip a wash or few.
