So...I have made it a full week with no shampoo or conditioner. My hair is not tangled, it does not smell funky and it is not greasy, per se, but I do find it incredible hard to style. Not that I did much styling to begin with, but blow-drying and straightening right now are out of the question. The texture is hard to explain and I am not sure if this is the "detox" period that some have forewarned. I am going to give it a couple more days and see what happens but as the weather gets colder here, I am wanting to have the hair down and straight so I may give in. In the meantime I will continue to take full advantage of side updos and hair accessories.
