It’s not unheard of to go a few days in between washings – in fact, many dermatologists and hair stylist recommend it for girls with course hair who need a bit of extra oil. But lately, a no-shampoo (no poo) trend has been emerging, which advocates followers to skip shampooing all together or go a lot longer in between lathers.
The people behind this trend claim that shampoos do more damage than good to your strands, which isn’t really true. There are plenty of brands that don’t strip your hair of its natural oils and can actually give your scalp more moisture. L`Occitane – Shea Butter Ultra Rich Shampoo is just one example of a product that respects the natural balance of your hair and scalp.
It’s totally okay if you want to try the trend, but prepare to get pretty greasy for the first couple of weeks that you start it. A product like Leonor Greyl – Tonique Vegetal sprays onto your scalp and prevents oil accumulation while giving your hair extra body, so you won’t look like you need a shower.
