Her name is Sarah Theeboom, is an American blogger and above all she hasn’t washed her hair with shampoo for six years . All because it believes that the detergents contained in the main hair care products contain substances capable of damaging the scalp.
Sarah’s example is certainly not isolated. Also on this site over the past few months we have spoken and discussed how the No Poo (no shampoo) or Low Poo (little shampoo) movements are being widely distributed in the United States, and beyond. So popular that even some stars of film and music have said they are in favor of embracing a new philosophy of life that knocks out detergents.
But let’s go back to Sarah. The girl said that she stopped washing her hair with the products on the market six years ago, following the example of a close friend of hers that the secret of her hair was to use only running water. Taking advantage of her 15-day vacation in Thailand, the girl wanted to follow in her footsteps.

Just the first 15 days – says the girl – were the most difficult to deal with. However, at the end of this first purification period, the welcome novelty arrived: “ The hair began to gradually lose its oily appearance, returning to a better condition than when I used shampoo. I started to see my hair clean and natural, it was silky and no longer frizzy “- said the young woman -” All this because I didn’t use chemicals “.
Not only that. “I started to see my hair clean and natural, was silky and no longer frizzy . All this because I have not used chemicals “- said the girl again, who then specified that when she goes to the hairdresser she explicitly asks not to use shampoo, generating a bit of disbelief.
However, not everyone seems to approach these thought movements for the same reason as Sarah. Some of the most prominent stars (from Gwyneth Paltrow to Brad Pitt) have in fact said they want to refrain from using the shampoo because they are concerned about the damage to the environment of the toxins contained in the shampoo. What do you think of it? Do you use shampoo or have you joined Low Poo?
