Thats it.

There all kinds of reasons people don't wash their hair. How did it effect your hair and scalp. Would you ever again go for any extended period of time without washing your hair?

When i was 17, i had an afro. I though i could make it nice, shiny an full, by allowing the natural oils to moisten my head. Every night for a month i would rub in some jojoba oil, and wear a shower cap to sleep. Id wake up and my head would be all oily and wet. It felt nice, and i thought i was doing a good thing, since i was led to beleive that this was a good idea.

It didnt kill me.....

2 weeks when I was homeless. Sooo grosss. I didn't have dreads then, either, so it was especially nasty looking.

I've gone abouta week and a halfwithout washing my hair (before dreading). I used this spray stuff on it though. Made it smell nice(: I definitely wouldn't do that now since I have a dry scalp and my baby dreads. The longest I'll go now is 3-4 days. More than that is jsut a no.

ive went 3 months before, and thats because my hair needed a break from shampoo for a while, it was irritating my scalp, so i just used water instead to rinse them, if that counts for not washing?
