I spent 1999-2001 with a crazy assemblage of dreads and extensions, and only washing my hair once a month. Then I spent 2006-2011 wearing my hair in two pink-tipped braids all day, every day, and only washed my hair twice a month. It was awesome and it worked great.
It did mean, however, that I needed to use a shower cap to keep my hair dry when I wasn’t washing it in the shower. I had some mangey plastic shower cap I’d gotten from a hotel room, but it grossed my partner out.
“It’s like a gross drippy jellyfish hanging around the bathroom like trash,” my then-boyfriend (now husband) complained.
“It squicks me out.”
Never one to miss an opportunity to buy myself something cute, I immediately hunted down an adorable retro shower cap, complete with a big fake flower on the side. This was back in the dark-ages of the internet (before Etsy, even… I KNOW!), so the only cute ones I could find were made by some Australian sold via a Yahoo Store.
Man, it’s so easy now, you guys. Amazon sells a whole range of these cuties, and lemme tell ya: if you’re going the “no ‘poo” route, this $12 zebra print shower cap with a huge pink rose is a pretty sweet way to say “I don’t wash my hair very often.”
Fess up: who’s doing NO ‘POO?
