Ditching Shampoo: Beauty Trend 2008

What: More and more women are leaving their shampoo on the shelf and opting for a once-a-week shampoo and style at the salon instead.

The Word: According to a recent New York Times article: “Today, as textured locks and full hair begin to eclipse the ironed and Japanese-straightened styles that were previously in vogue, weekly visits to salons are more common among women who were born since the Eisenhower administration. Women say it cuts down on bathroom time by eliminating daily blow-drying and is an excuse for more pampering when everything else has been polished and waxed.

    I agree, save your money for shoes! I will say, though, that I have opted for every other day shampooing. I’m a HUGE fan of Big shampoo by Lush. It smells like a Margarita and gets your hair squeaky clean so you dont’ have to shampoo every day. I use a light leave-on conditioner by Rusk and then I’m set.

    That’s just wrong in so many ways. I can’t stand not doing things for myself, even if I can’t get my nail polish perfect, or my hair just so.

    I thought this was going to be something about the no-poo trend. I ditched my shampoo over six months ago and started using sodium laureth sulfate free products. My hair has never been healthier.

    As for these people going to the salon all the time, some people certainly lead charmed lives. I definitely don’t think many of them are here with us reading BF, they obviously have no concerns for their budgets!
