    Very interesting topic but...I will stick with shampoo and chemicals and all the "harmful" additives...my only real vanity is my hair, I keep it either up or braided, I watch the color and have it high lighted when it needs it. I also maintain it so it looks nice, is always soft, and my husband loves running his fingers through my hair or playing with it.

    I would also think, someone who doesn't wash their hair often would have the body odor smell to them, GROSS! I can stand any smell but sweat and B.O. So no thank you. My husband is military to the core and showers every day and washes his hair....thank goodness!

    Didn't women use soapwort, a plant that would clean hair and other parts.

    Okay, I am not sure what more conscious living is (?). The largest insult to the environment from shampoo is not the contents - its the bottle. I use castille soap on my horses (no residue), and have taken it camping..good stuff...but it doesn't exactly leave your hair feeling squeeky clean. It also comes in a paper wrapper, not a plastic container.

    In the plus column for those that wish to never wash their hair is the fact that lice is not attracted to oily, unclean hair. Poor egyptians, they didn't get that memo...so they shaved their heads....which would really eliminate the need for shampoo!
