the great unwashed

I had no idea that my laziness was not only a trend, but an article in W Magazine. Christa D’Souza stylishly introduced the idea of forgoing shampoo for healthier hair. Since I color my hair it tends to get very dry, so I wait a few days between shampoos. The last day is always an interesting hairdo- a hat, braid or topknot, usually set off my blinding pink lipstick or killer shoes- you know, to take any attention away from the dirty hair.

D’Souza goes 6 weeks, that’s right- WEEKS- without shampooing. So, I can imagine that her creativity with masking dirty hair needs to be a little more in check than mine. It’s a very interesting article, though. Check it out!
