If you don't want to go through the 6 weeks or whatever of greasy hair while it gets used to no shampoo, then give Shave for a Cure a thought, and start with a clean slate. Worked for me.

I remember reading the thread when it was around. I haven't washed my hair with shampoo since I got it cut into a pixie cut about 18months ago. I do get it washed when I get my hair cut every 6 weeks but I do actually find that my head is always itchy for about a week afterwards (I assume a reaction to the chemicals). My hair isn't dry or greasy so it works for me

I've also just shaved my head to do this! Also because I dyed my hair in the postpartum "I'm gross and need a pep me up" haze and didn't want to continue dying or grow it out!
My DP hasn't washed his hair since he was around 18 (so about 20 years) and his hair is DELICIOUS. No smell whatsoever, no grease and the most delightful curls.

I have long fine hair. I used to wash my hair every 2nd or 3rd day but since I started using Dry shampoo my hair is sooo much less oily and I only wash it once a week.
Maybe try this method first. It took a while to see a change but others at work use it too and everyone loves it. The one in target that is $2 is awesome. Pink or green can with black lid.

This is almost inspirational, especially if not washing hair eventually results in better hair. I wish I could bring myself to do it.

I have tried it a few times but can never get past that horrible super oily stage, I feel disgusting and always end up giving in and washing it.
My DD's don't use shampoo and they have beautiful hair, it is soft, silky and never oily.

Do you still use conditioner if you use this method?

I wash my hair once a fortnight, I used to wash it everyday and it was so oily and thin then. It's never oily now, I might try and stretch it out a bit longer and see what happens!
