As you grow up you are told that you need to wash your hair with shampoo at least every other day, often times at least once a day. However there are some people that are choosing to go against what they were taught as kids and going sans shampoo. That’s right, they use nothing to wash their hair. Just water. Nothing else.
Jaquelyn Baers has gone without shampoo for over five years now but you wouldn’t be able to tell if you look at her hair. She said that she started using organic shampoos because she was worried about the chemicals that were being used in her hair when she was using regular shampoo. Then she realized how expensive the organic shampoos were and stopped using those as well. She had searched for alternatives and found that some people were using baking soda and apple cider vinegar so she tried that as well but she said it just didn’t work for her. Finally she gave up and used nothing but water.
Baers is not the only one to ditch the shampoo. It is actually becoming quite the growing trend these days. There is a small adjustment period that your hair goes through when you stop using the shampoo but after that people have found that it grows more quickly and is much shinier and healthier. So if you really don’t need shampoo at all, why are we putting all of these chemicals into our hair? Most of them are too dangerous to ingest so why should they be put on your scalp?
Would you try using just water to wash your hair as opposed to using shampoo?
