The “no-poo” (short for no-shampoo) is beginning to be more than just a trend. It’s beginning to take on a life of its own as a healthy habit. No-poo is short for no-shampoo, meaning to not wash your hair. The benefits of not washing your hair for a week, a few days, or even months (yes, there are people who go that long) are much more than washing your daily. When you wash your hair daily you strip natural oils, dry your hair out with chemicals, use more water and take more time in the shower. When you don’t wash your hair daily, you let the natural oils in the scalp build up and condition it while providing moisture for your locks.

You’ll also start to notice that with dirtier hair, the more certain styles hold. For first-timers it’s a bit harder to keep up with, but the less you shampoo, the easier it gets. Plus, you’re saving money on product and water bills, not to mention your showers will cut dramatically in time—especially if you have long locks.
