new *hair* obsession

February 20, 2009

the whole “no shampoo” or “no ‘poo” hair fad has really caught my attention starting with a chaz dean info-mercial for “wen” and then i saw this new york times article that has been kicking around on the internets.  my hair (and face) are super oily.  gross oily.  overactive nasty oily.  i figured that if i didn’t shampoo my hair it would lead to mega disaster, so forget that . . . maybe if wen was not almost $30 for 16oz i would consider trying it.

then liz and i were strolling though the new section at the christmas tree shop and way up on a top shelf this caught my eye:


way, way up there on the top and i still heard that little light in my brain go “ding.  look at that.”  it smelled good, which might make me want to buy most anything (hence my love for bath and body care products, so many of them smell good).  the cucumber smells nice, but i liked the smell of the olive better, but the olive was for dry hair, and mine is not dry.  the “hair one” is available at sally beauty supply for $10 as well as the christmas tree shop for $9.

here is a picture of my hair after a recent haircut, it’s all styled up, but i washed it with shampoo.  let’s call this the “before picture”:

hair before pic

after a few weeks of “hair one” washing i will update with an after picture.  i would also really, really like to try “wen” but i’m not sure i will get around to it because it involves internet ordering . . . although it is available on amazon.

    This topic fascinates me to no end. I desperately wish to be a non-shampooer, but aside from my freakishly oily face and hair, I also tend to have my hands in my hair a lot throughout the day and being a massage therapist, that means that my hands are already oily….you get the picture. Also, before having kids, I could pull off about 3 days without shampooing, but after kids…well, let’s just say that if I go more than 24 hours my hair looks like Swamp Thing. Can’t wait for the after shots.
