day 8

My good friend Amanda just left me to live in St. Paul, MN. I am quite unhappy with this whole leaving Oshkosh, WI, and me as well. (I know that I am also moving at the end of August, but I wanted Amanda to stay with me until the end of summer. I know...selfish, but I DON'T CARE!)



Anyway, I've decided to start a blog so that I can tell her about my life since I obviously won't be able to talk to her as much now. (Not that this is just for Amanda though. Feel free to keep reading, whoever you are.)

Awhile ago, my lovely roommate told me about an article she, and her friend, had read about not washing your hair EVER. It basically says that your hair has adapted itself to being washed on a regular basis. It gets greasy when not washed because the natural oils are out of whack from chemicals in shampoo and conditioner. When not washed with soap, only water, your hair goes through an extremely gross couple of weeks and then "normalizes" itself. I tried to do this awhile ago. I lasted 3 days.

My roommate recently told me that her friend stopped washing her hair and it now has more volume. After doing some research, I decided to really try to do it this time. Some of the articles said they did a 6 week no-washing study. So, that is my goal. 6 weeks. I am now on day 8. My hair looks fine, but feels pretty gross. So, if you see me in the next few weeks, please don't touch my hair.

I did that in Alaska for 20 days and I can tell you that it's strange but true! I highly approve even though I am washing my hair somewhat consistently these days...
