Stylists Approve: Best Ways to Skip Shampoo

05/18/2016

Let’s talk about one of your likely favorite things to do: lathering up and shampooing your hair daily. “Lather, rinse, repeat” may have already become your life’s mantra, but know that while it can eliminate dirt and odors on your locks, shampooing every day can also trigger the removal of natural oils that nourish and make hair shiny. 

Here are simple, highly doable ways to skip shampoo – straight from hair stylists themselves:

  • Do it gradually. Try washing every other day this week, and then every third day the next. Take baby steps until you are down to shampooing once a week. It can be a little scary and appear to be counterintuitive, but lessening your everyday hair wash will you teach you great lessons about proper hair care and maintenance. 
     
  • Shower every day. Skipping shampoo doesn’t mean foregoing your daily shower. Experts advise you may rinse and scrub your scalp while bathing – without actually applying shampoo. 
     
  • Style up! Unwashed hair can be quite a handful, so give it the touchup it needs through using a blow dryer or flatiron, or experimenting with a new trendy updo. Do a high bun or keep your bangs tidied up using a nice cloth headband. 
     
  • Find the right products to use. You may go one of two routes: commercial hair products, or DIY home remedies such as eggs and coconut oil. The latter is great for smooth, shiny, moisturized locks that will better help you through the process of skipping everyday shampooing. 
     
  • No reason to skip sweating, too. Your hair mission isn’t an excuse to not go to the gym and work out, or to ditch the sun simply because you’re afraid to sweat. Simply cleanse your hair more often if you do sweat a lot; just like in the second tip, rinse and scrub your scalp without using shampoo. 
     
  • You don’t need to swear off shampooing forever. Guess what? You may also switch to sulfate-free washes to lessen or eliminate use of conventional shampoo brands that are removing your hair’s natural oils and nutrients.
