What Happens If You Don't Shampoo Your Hair?

It was hard getting up in the morning, so we didn't wash our hair for one or two days. But what happens if we keep a shampoo fast going for a long time, like for several days or even weeks at a time?


People say they didn't wash their hair for as long as five years. They say that when shampoo doesn't get in the way, the scalp makes its own oils that don't need conditioners or long wash cycles.


In reality, what happens to your hair when you don't wash it is up to you.

Not everyone would have to wash their hair as often. But it all comes down to your genes. It all depends on how your hair is. It depends on how much you work out.


Every part of our skin has an oil gland. Every person has a different rate at which their scalp produces oils. That means not washing your hair can make one person's hair look better, but it can also make another person's hair smell like sour milk.


Hormones can change it. It is affected by medicines. Those who can't wash their hair for a few weeks can go for four, six, seven, eight, or nine. But it's bad for other people.

It all depends on your lifestyle and the type of hair you have.


Your hair could smell bad or stop growing

It's not possible to go three months without washing your hair if you run five miles a day. This is true for thicker hair, too, which makes it important to really clean the scalp when you wash it.


People who don't wash their hair for a long time can get buildup on their scalp, which can damage their hair and even make it hard for it to grow.


If someone has short or fine hair, they may start to see a lot of grime within four to six days. This is because dirt, oil, and other products from their skin and hair can build up quickly. People with thick or wavy hair can get a little more time, up to 10 days.


If you have itchy dandruff or a scaly scalp, you might want to scratch. Then your scalp or hair might get even worse. That's never very useful. You want to try to get to the root of the problem.


Your hair could have a major breakthrough


Many people who don't wash their hair say that after a few weeks, their hair changed from dirty and slimy to thicker or naturally voluminous because they didn't wash it.


If you dry your skin too much by shampooing or using harsh detergents, it will make more oil to try to make up for it. This is true, but it also calls for a good amount of balance to keep things in check.


People who don't wash their hair like to think about a simpler time, when people didn't use chemicals or soap to keep their hair clean. The people of the past also had to deal with things like matted hair and lice, which aren't as common today.


People with thin, fine, or less oily hair seem to do better when they don't wash their hair for a long time. There aren't any scientific studies on this.


For them, too many washes and shampoos were probably bad for their hair.

It helps if you don't sweat a lot or live in a dry place. People with curlier hair can go longer between washes before their hair looks bad, so they don't have to wash as often.
