You don't need shampoo.

  1. I haven't used shampoo in years now Blades. I stopped because it doesn't make much sense.

    Most shampoos contain the chemical sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), and sometimes sodium laureth sulfate. These are industrial-grade degreasers. If you've had to mop a fast food restaurant, chances are your mopping solution was mostly SLS.

    When we put this chemical on our head, it strips the scalp and hair of naturally occurring oils. If you use shampoo now, you've probably been using it your whole life, since your parents started giving you baths in Johnson&Johnson.

    Our bodies have an incredible capacity for maintaining balance, even under harsh conditions. To compensate for the oil your hair and scalp lose during shampooing, your body creates extra oil. This is the reason that your hair isn't brittle and snapping off in pieces.

    If you stop using shampoo, after a while your body will readjust and produce just enough oil to keep your hair the way it's supposed to be.

    If you don't want to do it for the loss of unnatural chemicals on your body, do it for the cash you can save :D
  2. I use a natural hemp infused shampoo, and i only wash my hair every few days...

    Its so soft lol.... nice n thick n strong too.... doesnt even smell..... in the summer i wash more frequently for obvious reasons.... but in winter... i find very little need to much more than just rinse the salts from my sweat out of my hair and leave the oils.....

    Ive also never washed my face more than once a day, and it doesnt ever get fucking oily lol..... im convinced all this shit people do to their face has the same result, more oils in the end....

  3. I'd guess the same about oily faces. I shower "mostly" everyday, just because my boss wants me to look decent. I get in the water, scrub my scalp really good with my fingertips and then softly with my nails to get rid of any buildup I might have acquired. I scrub my face really well with a soapless cloth and wash my body with Dr. Bronner's.

    What more do you need?
  4. The alternative- made with real hemp seed oil! :hello: (No, it won't get you high!)

    Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps All-One!

    Dudes, Dr. Bronner may have been a bit "eccentric" (read the label!), but he made a great soap! I have used it for over 30 years! Comes in various scents- peppermint, rose, eucalyptus, almond, tea tree, and lavender.

    And if you get spider mites on your plants- :eek:

    (unlike insecticides, a simple rinse with warm distilled water will remove the soap from your buds! No nasty flavors/ chemicals are left on your buds! And yes, it works! The soap dries on the bugs and suffocates them!:smoke: )

    Available at most health food stores and online. Ya can't beat it! :D

  5. I don't think that would work too well for everyone though, I mean if I didn't wash my hair after a workout or wrestling then it would smell horrible! And probably get ringworm, staph, or MRSA on my scalp (I've had ringworm there before and both staph and MRSA on my body, don't wanna catch that shit again!)

  6. Well, I'd hate to tell you to do something and have you contract a disease because of it, but I have faith that your body can adjust as well.

    Have you tried only washing your hair with water after sweating a lot? As long as you really get in there and get the grime out, I think you should be fine.

    Let this be a testament of the wonders of no shampoo:

    Friend of mine recently picked up MRSA at the local hospital. I made her a simple cannabis extract (cannabis, rubbing alcohol and some mint extract for a nice scent) that she applied a few times a day. The visiting nurse was so impressed by the speed of healing and disappearance of the MRSA rash that she asked for the studies, the recipe and did more research on it herself! :D

  8. Testimony for barely shampooed hair?

    When I do shampoo (every 4ish days) it's with 4 baby pea sized drops that I spread evenly throughout my hair.

    Me sexy hair:

  9. Looks healthy dude. Keep it up. Maybe try to ween yourself off?
  10. Back in high school, I used to wait every like 1-2 weeks before I shampooed, because I was experimenting (I used to wash it everyday, and it was frizzy) and it would get really really greasy. So I found my sweet spot and have had awesome hair ever since.

  11. Your hair looks almost exactly like mine
  12. you put chemicals in your mouth and on your skin and in your body everyday homie

  13. But they're usually carbon-based.

    I try to avoid synthetic chemicals as best I can. My soap is natural, my toothpaste is natural, my food is natural.

    The Earth provides the animals that live on it with everything they need. Why synthesize this stuff in labs?
  14. Are you mad ya don't use shampoo I wash my whole body in shampo it's better than sope it doesn't dry out ya skin a keeps you smelling fresh (coconut shampoo is the best )
  15. Well, synthesizing in labs could be analogous to a cellular community (organism) making a new protein; the protein may do something new and awesome for it, but it may also mess up its processes and kill it (or some other not so negative consequence).

    As far as the OP goes though. How long did it take you to not have greasy hair?

  16. My results are a little skewed because before I stopped completely adding things to my scalp, I used vinegar and baking soda for a couple months. After I stopped using those it took about three weeks, maybe a month or so to get good. It's completely normalized now and isn't greasy ever. I can go several days without any kind of washing and it still stays at this nice stage.
  17. Did you post a video of improv guitar on here? you look familiar :hello:

    i have dry hair and it gets greasy if i dont use shampoo, I'm probably gonna stop using shampoo and then shoot for a hemp based hair styling thing that they sell at the barber shop down the road :smoke:
  18. Since I'm fairly new here, I'm not sure how GC takes to dreads, but I'm on my second set. My first ones I combed out due to my morning sickness while pregnant(although, now I'm not sure why I did). My point being, I VERY rarely wash with shampoo. Its mostly just water or water and baking soda(it strips residues) and an apple cider rinse. I don't put any kind of chemicals on my hair and my hair has never been healthier!!! I see nothing wrong with occasional use of natural, chemical free shampoo but you are right, most Shampoos just damage your hair.
  19. Shampo cleans ya hair cuz If it didn't no one would buy it so they wouldn't make it shampo is essential for me any way

  20. Yeah I had one up for a while. I've also got some videos of me eating bugs, haha

    Sounds like a good hair strategy man.

    What I want to get across to people isn't "ooo, be a hippie, shampoo is bad for you," because there isn't much evidence that it IS bad for you. I want Blades to know that you don't have to spend the money on it, and that they're being sold an unnecessary product that American society has deemed so essential to good hygiene.
