If you don't clean your hair for a certain amount of time then hair will naturally clean itself.

The smell however would be terrible.
Yes but it takes quite a while. I had a friend who done this after watching something on telly. It goes through loads of horrible stages. Greasy, smelly etc. The end result was lovely glossy hair.......I wouldn't do it though!
I don't know about 'clean itself' but apparantly, after approx 6 weeks, hair does balance itself i.e. oils etc. I've been told that it'll look great, good body/shine etc. But the getting to 6 weeks without washing must be hell!
Oh yea..and you can't use swimming pools because the chlorine strips the natural oils and puts you back to square one!

Thanks everyone! It seems a lot more effort to not wash your hair then it does to wash it!
my ex bf didnt wash his hair for a good 3 years, and the only time it smelled was after a visit to the pub or a smokey atmosphere, remedied by rinsing with water thoroughly. other than that it did not smell.
