Stickin' It To The Shampoo-Industrial Complex

Over at Healthy Life, a regional magazine out of Albany, New York, I wrote an article explaining why -- this is true -- I have not shampooed my hair since March. The accompanying photo was taken last July, three months into my no-shampoo experiment.

Rare is the woman courageous enough to plunge herself headfirst into the field of gonzo women's beauty journalism. But I am that woman, yea, for verily I kick ass.

I'm still a libertarian, not a hippie. I swear.

I still have a tube of Prell from the 1970s in the shower.

You, of course, are arguing from a biased perspective.

Such a hygiene practice might work in the Northeast, but in Florida, where you start sweating the millisecond you walk outside, regular hair cleaning is a must...

I'm half way with you, Jen.
Years ago, I stopped blindly following the instructions on the shampoo bottles to "lather, rinse, repeat."

Once is enough, every other day.

Off-topic, Cap'n: I tried posting a comment on your blog the other day, and eventually got an email from Google telling me it didn't go through; I guess my comment never made it to the point where your ladyfriend the moderator could get it. Dunno why. Probably because computers seem to bear a visceral hatred of me.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Ms. Abel. Or perhaps I should now refer to you as Ms. Benny? :-)

It's been a while since we've seen anything from Jennifer. I wonder if this whole shampoo thing had some negative side effects.
