It started out with the dandruff problem that kept recurring and how I was so annoyed that I'd wash my hair with the dandruff shampoo and almost immediately my scalp would start to itch. Following that, I read that to have healthy hair you should just stop doing things to it. Then, I got tired of feeling guilty if I didn't wash my hair often enough and thought about how Europeans don't feel guilty when they don't shower as much as Americans, so why should I always be worried about stupid stuff like this? THEN, I noticed how NOT washing my hair seemed to stop the itching. I still worried about whether it would stink like dirty hair, though, but I asked Em to sniff my hair and he said it didn't smell like anything.
So, I'm gonna see how long this will last. It's not as though I have oily hair (Mine is dry), so my concern was really about whether it would stink, and I think that took me back to the days when I smoked. Since I don't smoke anymore and haven't for about 8 years now, what might cause my hair
to stink? I don't go to bars or other smoke-filled rooms (as though there are even bars where smoking is allowed these days).
My maternal grandmother had hair even longer than mine and she rarely washed it ... perhaps once/year. I like having long hair, but I don't like washing it and I don't like having an itchy scalp. Seems to me my grandmother had a solution to the problem.
I'll keep you informed of any progress.
