What happens when you STOP using shampoo?


Can you imagine getting into the shower every day and NOT rinsing your hair through with a lovely smelling shampoo? Neither can we but it is becoming more common as increasing numbers of women (and men, of course!) are leaving the shampoo and conditioner behind.

As many of us become aware of what we are putting in and on our bodies, more and more people are turning away from traditional hair care products, opting instead for more natural alternatives, or simply just water!

So, what happens when you leave shampoo and conditioner behind? Is your hair a massive, smelly ball of grease like you imagine it would be? As it turns out, that couldn’t be further from the truth…

From checking out bloggers that have quit shampoo, like the Hairpin, the friskyLittleOwlCrunchyMomma, Treehugger and loads more, it looks like while your hair may go through a period of ‘greasiness’ as it gets used to be being product free, once the PH balances itself, it becomes strong and healthy.

It would appear that once the natural oils of your hair take hold once and for all, your hair becomes softer, more manageable and a lot less frizzy.

Many of those who do not use shampoo instead use a mixture of baking soda and cider vinegar, though many opt just for water too.

Would you forego your shampoo routine and try the natural way? We’re intrigued!
