An Italian girl named Margaret Bador wanted to do an experiment – she wanted to see how it would look like if she didn’t wash her hair with shampoo for 31 days!
Before she did the experiment, she was washing her hair every day. When she read about not washing her hair in the internet, she decided to give it a try. She read that the transition period when your scalp withdraws from chemicals is the worst. An most people said that it should last for 2 weeks.
This is her story:
“Personally, the first week was the worst” – she began the story.
“My hair got immediately greasy, but the intensity was reduced after the third day. Of course, it did not look better, it was always the same, “- she says. During the period of the experiment, Margaret did not feel ugly, but mostly had her hair tied. The last two weeks, her roommate commented that she looks like she has not washed her hair for two days.
“I tried to wash it with chamomile tea several times. The only thing that happened is that it smelled nicer, but the grease did not reduce “- Margaret admits, adding that she worried that something will happen to her scalp, but nothing happened.
She was thinking and whether the ability to quit shampoo depends on the environment and the rule of thumb that beautiful hair is only clean hair. After lasting for 31 days, she decided that she didn’t like it, and still didn’t immediately go back to shampoo- she started using baking soda for washing her hair.
She made a mixture of water and baking soda (ratio 3: 1) and was more than satisfied. Baking soda picked up all the grease and cleaned her hair excellently.
