    I would never. If you try it and it works for you (and you like it), so be it! 😀 But I enjoy my products. The things I use make my hair extremely healthy.

    I don’t think I could ever do it…I have read that shampooing less often will help your hair out and I have tried it but can’t stick with it long enough to get past the nasty phase.

    I’m pretty low key, but no way is that for me.  I can’t imagine not feeling completely grimy after using any of those products to clean myself.  I can’t stand feeling slimy, greasy and I can’t imagine feeling any other way knowing what those products do to my hands when I’m cooking.

    I use coconut oil as facial moisturizer and I love it, but this girl has to have shampoo.

    I have, and wasn’t a fan. If you really want to clean your hair without chemicals, but aren’t willing to go so far as to completely forgo shampoo, try a natural shampoo that’s formulated without sodium laurel/laureth sulfate. They clean just as well as shampoos with laurel/laureth, but are less harsh on the hair. They work especially well with curly/wavy hair!

    I didn’t vote because I don’t shampoo, I just use conditioner.  I use a silicone free conditioner, and it’s enough to clean my hair without stripping it of oils.  I haven’t used shampoo since June, and I love the way my hair looks/feels.

    I use Wen cleansing conditioner but I’ve never used homemade garb.  I have naturally curly hair so I have to be careful that it doesn’t get to dry or it turns into a frizz ball.

    I am planning to switch to no shampoo after my stash of shampoo that I got for free (with coupons) runs out.

    I’m the same as Miss Lyre.  There’s a way to go shampoo-less without it getting gross and nasty–I shampoo maybe every few weeks, but condition daily, and have for over 5 years.  There is a transition period at first, but it’s the best thing I’ve done for my curly hair–every stylist I’ve gone to has been in awe of my curls and how healthy they are.  The book “Curly Girl” was my Bible in hair care for a long time.

    @bella128:  Nah. If it works then go for it, but if you use shampoo that is right for your hair type, you shouldn’t have a ridiculous amount of issues. Have you tried a weekly clarifying shampoo to get rid of product build-up? Do you rinse your conditioner out properly?

    I admit I have pretty easy hair. It’s straight and smooth and I’ve never had frizz in my life. I just wish it had more natural volume, but all in all I just wash, condition, put in a little mousse and blow-dry… pretty easy.

    Sometimes I mix olive oil and caster sugar together to make an exfoliating hand scrub. I tried it after reading a suggestion for it online and found that it works really well.

    I cannot imagine my hair and scalp feeling clean and fresh without a shampoo that lathers and lifts away product build-up and oil.
