I think the way commercials show people how to wash hair is wrong, but it’s pretty. Way too much shampoo to create “luxurious lather”, and piling all the hair on top and knotting it all together.

There is a way to 'wrap the hair up' after a shower, that uses tshirts instead. It's called hair plopping. It's what I do, except I use a towel instead.

It's easier on the hair, because it doesn't pull it at the roots, like the usual way of wrapping in a towel.

Tallysmom was talking about during the shower ... lathering hair and piling it on top of your head.

Nope. Years ago, I tried to gradually taper off shampooing every day; I started going every other day, then every third day, and so one. It was awful. My scalp just felt nasty, even after a few months of tapering off, and my hair looked terrible; dull and limp. I went back to washing every day, and it is always shiny and healthy looking.

FWIW, I asked my dermatologist about it and he said that shampooing has very little effect on sebum production; it is mainly due to hormones and hereditary.

Some people can get away without doing it, others can't. Just something else for people to evangelize over. There's no truth to the "scalps produce oil because you wash it away" thing. If that were true, our hands would all be oily as hell because we wash them more than any other body part.

I also wash my dogs when they start to smell or get gross; they smell sometimes because they are dogs, not because they occasionally get washed. how silly.

I can go 2 days tops. My adult son didn't shower today and looks like crap. Big, hairy guys just can't get away with it.

Funny you should say that because when I first rescued my Catahoula mix she was a bit smelly but I didn't have a way to give her a bath at my house so I had her scheduled for a bath at the local PetSmart. Then I had to walk her in the rain one day. It wasn't pouring but a good drizzle enough so that she was soaked by the time we got home. I dried her off and now she has no odor.

That's what I was thinking. My mid back curly hair would be a matted mess if I tried "lot's of towel rubbing". Just wrapping it up for a while after washing and conditioning still requires a good 5 to 10 minutes to detangle after unwrapping.
