Don’t Washing Your Hair or Brush It!


Are we witnessing a new trend in hair care? It seems that more and more people are confessing to skipping out on washing their hair or even ditching their trusty hair brushes altogether. This so-called ‘no wash hair trend’ has sparked curiosity and controversy alike.

While some swear by it, others are skeptical, even downright disgusted. But what does this mean for the world of hair care? Could it be a revolutionary approach to beauty or just another gimmick? Let’s dive deeper into the no wash hair trend and what it entails.


Don't Washing Your Hair or Brush It!

The prospect of skipping shampoo in the name of beauty is, to some, a paradoxical one. How could going without something that’s traditionally considered crucial for hygiene make anyone look better? And yet, the trend has caught on like wildfire in recent years, with influencers and celebrities alike promoting the benefits of a ‘no-poo‘ lifestyle.

Advocates claim that ditching shampoo and other hair-cleansing products can lead to shinier, fuller hair, as well as a more balanced scalp. But critics argue that the trend is just another disturbing fad, one that could lead to greasy, unhealthy locks and even hair loss.

So who’s right? As it turns out, the answer might not be as simple as one would think.

What is it?

Have you ever thought of ditching your hairbrush and shampoo? Well, if you’ve been following the latest ‘hair brush-free beauty routine’ trend, then you already have! The new trend proposes that washing your hair every day can strip away the natural oils, while brushing can cause breakage and split ends. Instead, going longer periods without washing and simply running your fingers through your hair to distribute natural oils.

Don't Washing Your Hair or Brush It!

Critics argue that going without washing or brushing can lead to a build-up of oils, dirt, and other pollutants, resulting in an itchy, flaky scalp and even hair loss. Others believe that while the trend may work for some, it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution.

So, what do you think- should we brush our hair and shampoo it every day, or go with this new trend?

Pros and cons.

‘Washing hairless: beauty benefit or myth?’ is a question that has sparked a controversial beauty trend – going without washing your hair or brushes. It seems incredulous that someone would opt-out of this daily ritual, but some swear by this haircare routine.

The idea behind washing hairless is that the natural oils from our scalp are enough to keep our hair clean and healthy.  Healthline, argues that it can lead to softer, shinier hair and less styling damage, healthier hair and scalp that produces a more balanced amount of oils in your hair, more voluminous hair, better-textured hair, and less need for styling products, less exposure to potentially irritating chemicals less plastic packaging waste, breaking an artificial cycle of shampooing, which dries out the hair, causing you to use products to add moisture back, and then shampoo again to remove product

However, experts believe that not washing your hair could lead to a buildup of bacteria, oil, and dandruff, causing it to look greasy, limp, and flaky. While there is no research to support either side, it’s clear that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to hair care. Angela Lamb, MD, an assistant professor of dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, says that washing your hair depends on its thickness, how much you sweat, exercise, and style it. You should go with your gut feeling on how long you can go without washing your hair. Lamb says, don’t go longer than 14 days, ever,

So, whether you prefer luscious locks or freshly washed tresses, ultimately, the decision is up to you.

Impact on hair health.

‘The no-wash hair movement’ has garnered its fair share of controversy and popularity alike. Some swear by the practice, saying it has transformed their hair game, while others remain skeptical of its effectiveness and even hygiene.

But what impact does forgoing shampoo and brushes have on hair health? While there’s no denying that going without washing your hair can lead to a buildup of oil and product, some experts argue that over-shampooing strips the scalp of its natural oils, leading to dryness and potential hair loss. Brushing, too, if done too aggressively, can damage hair strands and cause breakage.

However, others point out that going too long without washing can lead to dandruff and clogged hair follicles, ultimately hindering growth. It’s a contentious topic, to be sure, but one thing is clear: there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to hair care.

From a medical perspective, Carolyn Goh, MD, assistant clinical professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, says some of her patients only wash their hair once a week. She says as long as they don’t have scalp problems that seems OK. She doesn’t advise them to wash more often.

So, yeah — you need to wash your hair. Alli Webb, professional hair stylist and founder of Drybar. “For hair that’s normal in terms of oiliness and medium weight, I sometimes tell my clients to go as long as they can without shampooing.”

Yes, it’s a new ‘brush-free hair care’ trend that’s taking the beauty world by storm.
