EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

I thought it was bad when I washed my hair once a week when I was a kid, but....EWWWWWWWWWW!

Well, with that thoery, does she neglect to wash her pubes as well?

I wonder if her head sticks to her pillow.

Hell, my water pump went out on a friday morning and I couldn't get it fixed until monday afternoon. I thought, "no problem, it's the weekend, no need to shower."

If it hadn't gotten fixed on monday I would have shaved my hair off on tuesday. It was driving me nuts.
 
2005-01-30 03:33:28 PM  
Maybe her and the dude a few threads down that doesn't flush the toilet - could get together. Imagine the water and money saved!!

It's probably really shiny.

It's a well known fact that if you just wash your hair in water without detergents then the oil that your scalp produces stabilises. Most people don't do it because there's a three month period of unsticking it from your head in the morning.

I find shampoo just strips out all the goodness and then you put conditioner on to put the goodness back in.

This coming from a chemical engineering grad? I can't find "goodness" anywhere in the ingredients list of my conditioner. I feel ripped off!
 
2005-01-30 04:23:58 PM  
OK. I do not use shampoo in my hair. Haven't for years. I clean my hair with water only every day in the shower. I was going bald and now I'm not. My hair is not oily or shiney.
Say what you will but my hair is now much more healthy than ever before.
I do keep it very short and when it gets longer it tends to be out of control. That's all.
 
2005-01-30 04:38:39 PM  
My water heater seems to be having trouble keeping up with my demands for hot water in which to shampoo and condition my hair, so perhaps I'll try this for a while.

No thanks. I'd rather study.

Not a bad idea... My hair is almost always dry at the tips...maybe letting it go unshampooed (but not unwashed) for a while would help

2005-01-30 06:13:06 PM  
She's right. Its just that it takes a good couple weeks for your hair to adjust. Doesn't mean i'm giving up shampoo though.

I used to use deodorant all the time before I cleansed the inside of my body (juice fasting + herbs), now I only need deodorant if I eat garbage (dairy, sugar, dead animal, etc.). If I exercise and eat right (mostly vegan), I have no odor.

The hair care idea sounds like it may work. The body can heal and clean itself, for the most part.
 
2005-01-30 06:17:17 PM  
Let's assume for a moment that her "goodness" theory of hair care (which reminds me of the "bodily humours" of medieval medicine) is valid. Her contention is that shampoo removes the goodness and that the conditioner restores it.

Should she not, then, use conditioner alone, thereby enhancing her hair with extra goodness?

Have you read the shampoo bottle lately?

It nothing but ad speak. You haven't the foggest clue what the hell they are talking about but it "sounds good" and you buy it.

It is all 100 percent unequivical bullshiat.

So go clean your foilical zones with your hydration supressors with act control. And feel good about yourself. And remember it "works" and "helps".
 
2005-01-30 06:18:08 PM  
I have long hair and only use shampoo once every three days. I DO shower once a day, however. Once the oil balances out in your scalp, it doesn't over produce and make your hair greasy after one day and the tips of your hair don't get dry and crackely.
 
2005-01-30 06:19:53 PM  
Shampoo also kills bacteria.

Her hair is probably infested with all kinds of buggy things.

The computer scientist never found an exit from the instructions on the regular shampoo bottle - "Wash, rinse, repeat."

She's still in the shower.
 
2005-01-30 06:36:01 PM  
Guys, just remember this... shampoos are full of 'estrogenics', chemicals that have some of the same effects as estrogen.

You're soaking that in through your skin.

Of course, they're also in most of our foods, cleaners, packaging materials.

Geeeez, folks..if you got long hair, how the fark do you think the grease gets out to the ends?
IT DOESN'T!
Soooooo....you can wash daily and just avoid oversoaping your head and your hair'll be better off. It's basically just keratin. Do you worry about your fingernails stinking?
/don't answer that.....
 
2005-01-30 06:36:52 PM  
Most people with naturally curly hair don't wash their hair with shampoo often, if ever. It's best to just rinse it with water and apply decent conditioner (not the runny Suave shiat) to the ends, if needed, once a week.

Are those of us defending our 'dirty habits' to understand that you spend 24 hours a day hosing yourself with scalding hot water? There are good bacteria and bad, good oils and bad. Some of us just treat our bodies differently than you treat yours. This does not make us smelly hippy people. I think this woman is nasty, too; after ten years you've got to have some really nasty bacteria cultivating a species on her scalp, but other than jokes, I haven't heard anyone describing themselves in a way that is 'dirty' so far on this thread.

My junior year of high school, I was on a sailboat moored at Holiday Lodge marina in Panama City,FL. As those of you from the Panhandle know,the famous Captain Anderson was nearby. They had a dumpster full of spent oyster shells that was picked up every few days by some recycling company. The stench off the seafood dumpster in 90 degree heat is the benchmark by which I compare all stench. I wonder if the chick has a burly taco.

There is a big difference between actively conforming and actively non-conforming. Both are stupid (I personally feel non-conformity is worse). You should not use the fact that other people do or do not do things as a basis for your own actions. Washing your hair because everyone else does is stupid. NOT washing your hair because everyone else DOES is even worse. Washing your hair because you want it clean and respect other human beings around you enough to clean it (so they aren't disgusted and don't get your hair lice, etc.) is SMART.

I find it horribly ironic it is the non-conformists that preach against "sheep." Doing/not doing things because others do them is being a sheep. The ones that do the same as others, no matter how much you despise them, are going to be making the better decision more often than the ones who do the opposite.

On the other hand, there is another group of people besides conformists and non-conformists. I call them intelligent people. Intelligent people think for themselves. You should try it some time.

/of course you'll ignore me because I don't agree with your pre-packaged set of beliefs

Ilarken - I think this woman is nasty, too; after ten years you've got to have some really nasty bacteria cultivating a species on her scalp...

After 10 years, that bacteria has probably evolved into sentience. It would be morally wrong for her to wash her hair.

That was a pretty heavy flame against an ambiguous statement by N.S. Radieaux. Did some non-conformists kill your dog because it was the unpopular thing to do?

Personally I find that people who rail against "conformists" and "non-conformists" tend to believe that they are the only people on earth who think for themselves. And that belief is just as dangerous as blindly following / not following the herd.

2005-01-30 07:02:13 PM  
This lady might be right.

Look at the ingrediants in shampoos. Sodiam Laural/Laureth Sulfate? That stuff is toxic. Its only added because it makes bubbles. There is more toxic stuff in there too, like antifreeze & sometimes tar. She & her children are probably better off w/out putting toxic chemicals on the skin that is right next to the brain every day. Think about it people! All of these shampoo commercials have brainwashed the public into mindless media zombies. If anyone thinks outside their limited box, the public is sure quick to form a mob and slander her as dirty, infested, filth. WRONG. Your mob, brainwashed mentality is dirty, infested, filth.

Now, let me add my input from personal experiance. I have gone years w/out using shampoo, but I did bathe regularly, including washing my hair in warm water. What I found is that my hair looked fine most of the time minus the dandruff, but I suspect that dandruff is linked to the chlorine gas disolved in the water. I have noticed, however, that after I resumed using shampoo on a regular basis, the dandruff went away, and my hear felt lighter, however, there were never any smells coming from my hair. My hair always smelled fine. There are natural oils, and natural healthy bacteria everwhere, all over our body & even inside our body. Its a simple fact. Our bodies could not survive w/out bacteria. The media has brainwashed you if you think otherwise. They want to sell their Oxy-strips & other crap, so they use fear-mongering, brainwashing tactics. Flava FlAve May have said it best "DONT DONT DONT DONT DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE MUHUHUHAHAHAHAHA"

In the 18th century there was no such thing! Nobody'd ever imagined such a thing -- no sane person anyway. Along comes this doctor...Semmelweiss, I think. He tries to convince people... other doctors mostly...that there are these teeny tiny invisible "bad things" called germs that get into your body and make you...sick! He's trying to get doctors to wash their hands. What is this guy...crazy? Teeny tiny invisible whaddayou call 'em?..."germs"!

So cut to the 20th century! Last week in fact, right before I got dragged into this hellhole. I order a burger in this fast food joint. The waiter drops it on the floor. He picks it up, wipes it off, hands it to me...like it was all okay.

"What about the germs?" I say. He goes, "I don't believe in germs. Germs are just a plot they made up so they can sell you disinfectants and soap!"

Going back to the good/bad bacteria thing...

From 1986-1989, I took broad-spectrum antibiotics (tetracycline and accutane) for acne. It caused, among other side effects, an overgrowth of candida albicans. At the time, no one knew (or acknowledged) anything dangerous about antibiotics. They were THE panacea.

Now, when you're prescribed antibiotics, you're usually given advice about supplementing your diet with good bacteria (L. acidophilus).

But why not just stay away from antibiotics? They're crap.

The clear layer is glycerin. You can mix glycerin back in when you make soap. Or you can skim the glycerin off.

You can mix glycerin with nitric acid to make nitroglyerin.

You can mix nitroglycerin with sodium nitrate and sawdust to make dynamite.

You can blow up bridges.

You can mix nitroglycerin with more nitric acid and and parafin and make gelatin explosives.

You can blow up a building, easy.

With enough soap, you can blow up the whole world.

Maybe your generalization is true most of the time, but no, I don't think you have to "rail against" sheep to not be one. As for flaming, I'd be happy to insult a hundred farkers if by doing so I got one person to change himself for the better. Fighting ignorance, and those who are content with being ignorant, is a fight to which I have subscribed. When your life is taken away from you due to the ignorance and misinformation (read: lies) of others, you become a little touchy when people praise and/or spread it. But that's a sad story for another day.

the "goodness" she's talking about, for those of you who care, is probably oils. and no, her hair is probably NOT cultivating nasty bacteria. if she keeps her hair dry, harmful bacteria probably have a tough time living there. whether or not you shampoo or not, you'll always have bacteria in your hair; hell, you NEED certain good bacteria on your scalp in order to crowd out pathogenic strains.

I LOVE Dr. Bronners soaps, I've used them for years. I never have the itchiness that Mr. Larj, my more chemically friendly husband experiences. Another good soap and product line is the "Kiss my face" olive oil soap. Only 3 ingredients. Ppl are a little too concerned with cleanliness in this country. A little bacterium in our systems helps to build up antibodies and actually increases our immune systems. Throw those anti-bacterial soaps out!

I used to use deodorant all the time before I cleansed the inside of my body (juice fasting + herbs), now I only need deodorant if I eat garbage (dairy, sugar, dead animal, etc.). If I exercise and eat right (mostly vegan), I have no odor.

Thanks for reminding me. I haven't eaten any dead animal in a few hours now. Off to barbeque!

But in this case, the woman provided a valid criticism of the item she had no need for. She sets a proud example for the rest of us, who usually purchase goods in our consumer-centric society without questioning their necessity.

Yeaaaahh.. Right. You know why you think you have no odor? Because you're used to your own smell, but rest assured that there are a few dozen people who know you and are afraid to approach you about your odor issue.

I regularly bump into stinky mo-fo's like you in art galleries... There were a ton of them at my art school too.

I was going to do a perfomance art piece where I walked around with shampoo and a water tank. I would tackle the scumbag and wash them against their will, and call it art so I wouldn't get arrested for assualt.

I'm a nonconformist simply because I naturally gravitate in that way. If I want to do something, I'll do it. If I don't want to do something, I won't. I don't buy or NOT buy something for any reason other than if I need it or not.

Shampoo. My head itches if I don't wash it. My head doesn't itch when I do wash it. I use it, not because society tells me to use it, but because I don't like having my head itch.

On the other hand, I don't wear name brand clothing. Not because I hate the brands, but because non-named brand stuff is cheaper. So are shirts with no logos or silly phrases and pictures. Why should I pay $20 for a shirt with Stewie on it when I can get five of them for the same price? If I happen to cross a name brand that's a reasonable price and quality (for example, I somehow managed to acquire Prada glasses), then I'll get it. Not because it's a name brand, but because it serves a function.

I can't believe people assume that people buy things because they're told to. And I think it's absurd to NOT buy things for the sake of noncomforming (how original). I'm sure there are a great number of people who buy or not buy things for function and not form, and there's nothing more to their decisions.

Everyone, with possibly the exception of the seriously mentally ill, is a conformist. Even those who think conformity is stupid. Even non-conformists.

Non-conformists conform to non-conformist standards. DON'T buy name brands. DON'T do something because everyone else does. DON'T do this. DON'T do that. Hell, and even then they eat, pee, sleep and wake up just like everyone else.

The most true non-conformist (about as true as you could get at least) do whatever the hell they want to. Will they buy a name brand or not? Will they do something that follows the crowed or not? Who knows? Even they don't. One second they could be buying a PS2, the next they're taking a bath with organic soaps.

Anyone seen/read Bartleby? That's a true nonconformist there... and he ended up dying.

I stopped using shampoo, althought I use it occasionally. I'm considering stopping all together. I realize some of you think that's nasty, but I've always had very dry hair, and I don't like using chemicals to remove all the natural oils. Man lived 1000's of years without shampoo, but I guess most of us have been brainwashed by procter and gamble et al. into thinking we're filthy Europeans if we don't go through $10 of personal hygene products everyday.

The longest I've gone without washing my hair is three days. Oddly enough, though, after about 36 hours, it stopped looking flat and oily and appeared normal again. Nobody noticed a difference, and I probably would have left it go for longer, had it not been for the smell.

Whatever makes the woman happy. As for me, I'll go back to shampooing regularly with my 79 cent bottles of Suave.

The lady brushes her hair every day and probably does so with a natural bristle brush. Brushing distributes the natural oils, removes dirt and makes the cuticles of the hair lay flat. I bet her hair is prettier than most and doesn't smell bad.

This has always bothered me - Other than from a marketing standpoint, why do some shampoos contain vitamins when the hair is not living tissue?

I remember this hippie chick I went to college with.

She was opposed to the use of soap for some reason or other, and it was singularly unpleasant to be around the woman in an enclosed space.

She did, apparently, believe in perfume though, and I guess tried to drown out her scent that way.

Thankfully, she didn't smoke or she would have completed the Frenchman trifecta.

Miskatonic University may actually have a good point. There are many ideas, at least in American culture, to which you must adhere, or be labelled "mentally ill" or some variation of that.

I can understand if most people find this hard to believe, as I would have to, at least until the day I was institutionalized for my beliefs and actions. They did not harm anyone else, they merely differed from the acceptable norm. I probably could have avoided it by claiming non-conformity as a reason.

When I mentioned "conformists" and "nonconformists" before, I think most people took broader definitions than I had intended. I meant people who base their actions/beliefs primarily on the actions/beliefs of others, as opposed to the reasoning behind those actions/beliefs. Going with popular opinion doesn't make you a conformist, so long as you hold the opinion for your own reasons. Basically, I don't think you should use the fact that others believe/don't believe something or do/don't do something as a basis to believe/do it yourself.

It's just scary to be forced to realize that oftentimes we still live in the dark ages, where (radical) independent thinking is looked down upon, and people can still be locked up for their beliefs, even if they do no rational harm to anyone else. Hopefully in a few years I can tell you all what a success my case was and how everything has changed for the better, but I imagine the courts will determine that.

Yes. It also improved my eyesight, doubled my running speed, decreased food cravings (sugar, caffeine, meat, etc.), increased my energy, enabled me to concentrate better, cured my ulcerative colitis, relieved constipation, improved my immune system, made sex more enjoyable (for me & her), improved my appetite, removed mental fogginess and elminated depression.

Try it yourself (or don't try it, if you're my RP-controlled minion ATostig).

Start by drinking 12-14 cups of distilled water each day. That alone will change your life.

After a while, try drinking fresh fruit & vegetable juices. Start with apples. Stay away from the store-bought stuff, unless you actually watch them juice it.

And when you're ready, try wheatgrass juice.

-You "cleansed" your system? Sure you did. And as for not needing deodorant, I'm sure the people around you are just being nice.

From 1986-1989, I took broad-spectrum antibiotics (tetracycline and accutane) for acne. It caused, among other side effects, an overgrowth of candida albicans. At the time, no one knew (or acknowledged) anything dangerous about antibiotics. They were THE panacea.

-I was seven years old in 1989, and I understood perfectly well the consequences of antibiotic misuse. Maybe you just weren't listening.

But why not just stay away from antibiotics? They're crap.

-Hey, next time a bacterial plague hits the population, feel free to forgo any use of antibiotics. It's your dumbass.

Saying that antibiotics are worthless is utter garbage. I'm most likely alive and well because of them, rather than some homeopathic nonsense about the right diet being able to heal any disease.

TheJoe03...I have curly hair too, and yes, supposedly shampooing your hair everyday is often bad for people w/ curly hair because they tend to have dryer hair than people with straight hair.. it strips out the oils causing frizz which obviously doesn't make the curls look that good...The curlier your hair is the more dry it usually is...Personally, I can't seem to give up shampoo I'm a clean freak.. so i cannot attest to it... i do however use "intense moisture" shampoo/conditioner by dove and it makes my hair less dry than most shampoos etc...sometimes they also reccomend that you don't wash all the conditioner out if you have curly hair and just leave it in....yup...

2005-01-31 12:35:32 AM  
She looks a little nutty, but I've actually heard that this works. Hair, after all, evolved without the benefit of shampoo. Your hair overproduces oil to counteract the drying quality of shampoo. If you stopped shampooing, I wouldn't be surprised if your folicles normalized their oil production. It'd rinse it weekly at the least though.

Why do poor people smell like sour milk?

Those are the people who wash underarms, feet, and between the legs, but not elsewhere either because they can't manage or don't bother. This leaves a close-range scent of lactic acid excreted in sweat. BTW, I recall reading somewhere that most people tested found this less offensive than other body odors, apparently because other people's is indistinguishable from their own. You're welcome.

On the main topic, am I the only one whose hair doesn't seem to care that it gets a bar of ordinary soap rubbed through it in the shower rather than shampoo?

Been there, done that. Went about a year. For two weeks your hair is going to look like shiat. Eventually your scalp catches on and things are OK.

You still wash your hair - I tried to use about as hot of a water as I could stand and work my fingers through my hair for about 5 minutes in the shower. After it dried about 5 minutes or so with a natural bristle brush. Hair maintanance takes longer but ultimatly I though my hair looked a lot better than it did before.

Then I spend two weeks of vacation time doing some really nasty rehab work and pretty much had to resort to shampoo. After that my scalp was back to pumping more oil than OPEC and I wasn't up for two weeks of looking like shiat, so it was back to the old lather, rinse, repeat.

I had no idea that people felt so strongly about hair-washing. Interesting.

So in related news, my brother ran out of soap one day, and when he asked his roommate if he could borrow some the guy handed him a bottle of lime dishwashing soap. My brother looked at him, perplexed, astonished, all other sorts of fun words, and the guy was like "I just like the liquid type better". Also interesting.

SwiftFox:

I used to use bar soap when I ran out of shampoo before I got more, but as my hair has gotten longer I've found that getting a brush through it is not really working out so well when I use bar soap. If I run out of shampoo I end up just rinsing my hair thoroughly and repeatedly in warm-near-hot water for that session before buying more shampoo.

i had a friend from new york come visit me in the college dorms, but he'd forgotten to bring soap. i offered him soem but he decided to try washing with the stuff from the hand soap dispenser because he'd always wondered how well it'd work. it really freaked out my roomie at the time but she never liked him much anyways... i on the other hand found it hilarious! he says it works as well as regular soap, i suppose it's just like body wash.

I used to have some long-ass hair a few years ago and I had to shampoo and conditionor every day. If skipped a day, my hair would be really oily and stringy and smell really bad. I didn't even dare try to go more than 3 days withoug washing. Now that I keep my hair really short I can go a bit longer without washing it, but it's an oil slick by the second day.

I'm actually surprised she doesn't look like this:

big ugly man doll:

Start by drinking 12-14 cups of distilled water each day. That alone will change your life.

I call BS on that (pops). Drinking that much water does nothing good for you, and if taken to the level that you suggest, can result in your body's electrolytes being diluted. Yes, people can die of a water overdose.

Wheatgrass juice is supposed to be extremely nutritious, though. Heard it takes awful, though.

/hate the way my hair feels until a few days after I've washed it

big ugly man doll - But why not just stay away from antibiotics? They're crap

A few weeks ago my brother was bitten by his neighbor's cat. He went straight to the hospital after his hand swelled up to the size of a melon and purple streaks started creeping up his arm. He spent the weekend in the hospital being pumped full of intravenous antibiotics. If the hospital hadn't done that, he would have died.

Does everyone remember the name of the "stinky kid" in school?

(No)


Does everyone remember how bad the "stinky kid" smelled?
(Yes)




Ever notice that the "stinky kid" doesn't believe that they stink? They get used to their smell. Don't be polite. Tell them they stink. It's better for them in the long run.

Her hair is fine and she has the right approach. I haven't shampoo'd my hair for about that long either, maybe a year or two longer. It's not matted. It's not oily. And if you haven't been told you wouldn't know for looking at it.

For the first couple of years i didn't shampoo people claimed the only reason i could get away with it, was because i was a guy with reasonably short hair, and that if my hair was long it wouldn't work.

So i grew my hair long (past shoulders) and still didn't need to wash it.

I've been asked by hairdressers/barbers what "product" i use because my hair is nice and soft to them. You can't admit that you don't shampoo cause some of them will go ape shiat, i just say 'not sure, my gf picks it'.

When stopping shampoo/conditioner cycle, the first two weeks are the hardest. I find that you then HAVE to wash your hair, and you do use shampoo+conditioner, but the next day it just feels so horrible that you won't do it again.. and won't look back.

If you use gel or stupid hardening shiat like that in your hair, then i wouldn't recommend it.

Look at all the simple minded little posts on here from people that have compulsory beliefs that they could not stray from long enough to give an objective view on this.

Did you little fightened children ever think that she might be right? Look at old paintings of women, they didnt have shampoo back then, and thier hair looked great.

You sick little farks wouldnt know objectivity if it fell on to your face and farted. Poor scared little morons.

If your hair feels "greasy" if you don't wash it every day... that is a problem. It is either psychological (un-greasy hair does not mean clean unstinky hair) or your body is trying to compensate for a stripped scalp.

Conditioner isn't needed. Ever. If your hair is long, you DEFINATELY do not need conditioner. The ends will dry out too fast, and frizz or split.

Too many people use far too much shampoo. Yes, shampoo is supposed to lather, but not into a big white afro. Try using half the shampoo you normally do, wash only the scalp, and you probably won't have to use conditioner.

While excessively stinky people bother me, people who spend WAY too much time on themselves bother me even moreso.

biatch, lay off the damn perfume, I can't farking breathe. And what the hell is that crap in your hair? Mousse and hairspray... christ.

The most beatiful woman I ever met washes her hair once a week, and doesn't use any hair products. She DEFINATELY doesn't stink (but her smell is delightful where it counts)

What scares me most is that thing got married. What the hell does a geek have to do, to get these inferior specimens to quit multiplying ?

I know, launch a potent biovirus, and infuse the antidote in every bottle of shampoo!

you know what I figured out


EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT, my hair is an oil mess if I dont shampoo it and some people have dry scalp, we will all find that differnt things work

for a while there I started to see women with the greasy hair look in the malls, I just wanted to run, it looked discusting, and they had their hair style straight with those phony looking highlights in them

look........... greasy hair just looks nasty

Hair or a scalp that smells unwashed is nasty. I've seen otherwise cute girls whose head grease I could smell six feet away, and it pretty much destroyed the desireability they would have had.

Even if your hair is clean you have to make sure to clean down to the scalp, or you'll end up smelling like an old, sweat-soaked hat.

I agree with you that drinking too much water is bad for you but I don't think that 13-14 cups of water will do it. Visualize it as 6-7 500 mL bottles of water...not that much actually.

As for "water intoxication" (what happens when your electrolytes go wonky because of too much h2O) I've been there and done that. It was during my first year of university. I started off wanting to be healthier and drank "normal" amounts of water but stress soon got to me and drinking water became a nervous, compulsive habit. I was drinking about 2 litres an hour without realizing it, started to feel weak and went to see my MD. They originally thought it was diabetes but no...I was just addicted to water. I didn't end up in the hospital but I did have to get blood work done every week until things became more normal.

/In my second year I switched to alcohol...MUCH better. ;o)
//I still can't believe I was "addicted" to water...my friends won't let me forget.

"Mrs Weynberg brushes her hair daily to remove dirt and smells"

what about other hairy places on her body? If my old lady didnt wash her you know what for 11 years, eewwwwww
 
2005-01-31 10:53:17 AM  
That's a buncha horse shiat. I can understand maybe if you are concerned about certain things in shampoo but 11 years???? That's disgusting. At least clean it once in a while. That picture was exactly what I was expecting to see when I opened the link. No way would I ever date, sleep, or anything with someone that had a head that hadn't been washed in 11 years. Imagine having to go to the vet to get some advantage because your wife has more festering in the bed than the family dog.

If the hospital hadn't done that, he would have died.

False dilemma. In your narrow-minded perspective there were only two choices: death or antibiotics. "But that's what the doctors said, and they know everything!" Did you even consider an alternative? Of course not, because in your head, doctors are gods.

State_College_Arsonist
Saying that antibiotics are worthless is utter garbage. I'm most likely alive and well because of them, rather than some homeopathic nonsense about the right diet being able to heal any disease.

You're setting up a strawman. I didn't say anything about homeopathy. I said "natural healing".

I was seven years old in 1989, and I understood perfectly well the consequences of antibiotic misuse.

You were seven, and you understood not only the definition of antibiotic, but what constitutes misuse? Riiight. Nobody at age seven, especially back then, knew that taking 500mg of tetracycline for more than six weeks constitutes misuse.

The Dark One
I call BS on that (pops). Drinking that much water does nothing good for you

As has already been pointed out, I didn't say drink like a fish. I gave a specific range of amounts.

Water acts as a solvent to remove waste from your body. Distilled water is the purist water commercially available.

KoolMcKool, State_College_Arsonist, The Dark One
Is that the best you guys can do, put words in my mouth and call me names? (pops, moran, etc.) Can you not simply argue a point as it is presented?

Take a look at the countries with the lowest incidences of cancer. What are they eating? How much do they pump themselves full of antibiotics? Which herbs do they use to take care of themselves? (This type of research takes more effort than reading headlines and may tell you something you don't want to know, so you may want to wave the white flag and go back to your name-calling.)
 
2005-01-31 06:02:04 PM  
I think that 11 years sounds a wee bit excessive, since in 11 years I'd think one would do SOMETHING that would get something in your hair (paint, mud, whatever) but I only wash my hair twice a week and it isn't oily or smelly or gross. I rinse it between that with hot water but no shampoo. Your scalp overproduces oils because you strip them out by shampooing every day. If you shampoo less, your body produces less oil. Simple fact.
 
2005-01-31 06:12:22 PM  
Why do people keep assuming that because she doesn't use shampoo, she doesn't *bathe* at all? I mean that's a pretty big freakin' jump.
 
2005-01-31 09:42:45 PM  
Not that anybody will read this, but I know my face definitely produces less oil if I don't overwash it. I had the Teenage Zit OMG HORROR! thing going on when I was younger and I would wash and wash and wash my face to try to heal the zits. It really just made it worse, because it would dry out my face pretty bad and cause my skin to overreact. Now I wash my face 1) after I wake up in the morning 2) when I shower in the evening, and that's it. My skin has definitely settled down.

I exercise everyday and I walk many blocks in a smoggy city. There's so much crap stinking up my hair by the end of the day, I HAVE to wash it.

I'm not gonna freak out if somebody misses a shower once in a while, but this lady just sounds pretty nasty.You can take my Pantene when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.

Oh, you don't have to be a dirty hippie to try that Dr. Bronner 18-in-1 Peppermint Castile ALL ONE! DON'T DRINK SOAP OK! ALL ONE! soap. It's not very good to my hair, but it makes you feel like a gigantic Altoid, which is very interesting in certain...areas. :)
