(Reactions Splash Intro)
Tiffany: Are we boring you with all this hair talk, Jon?
Jon: We’ll that’s mildly sexist, and no.
Y’all can talk about hair all you want, I’m just upset
because we’re at this 1920s party
and none of you are in the correct decade.
Megan: Look at you, you didn’t even dress up.
We’d at least put forth some effort.
She looks like she came right out of Ridgemont Hig.
Jon: Well, you know I’m lazy.
This is something that you guys know.
I don’t even wash my hair.
Tiffany: Oh… Don’t tell me you’re doin’ that no poo thing.
Jon: Yeah, I am.
Smell’s good, smell it.
Tiffany: Oh no. No we’re good thank you.
Jon: It smells fine.I do co-washing.
Megan: What’s co-washing?
Co-washing is just using conditioner
without shampoo to wash your hair.
It’s part of the “no poo” craze
which is short for “no shampoo.”
People have started doing this because they’ve read that
shampoo and conditioner are damaging to your hair.
There’s some merit to this :constantly
washing and conditioning your hair with water
stretches the cuticles of your hair strands.
These cuticles generally lie flat
but every time they get wet
they can dry in less than flat formations
making your hair look dull and more easily break.
Dull, breaking hair = generally not good.
Trina: You have all that
oily sebum and pollen and dirt and pollution and
油脂 花粉 灰尘 污染
random stuff in your hair.
So be prepared for that smelly, greasy, mess.
Some people claim sebum stops being secreted after a few weeks
because your hair has plenty now.
That’s not true,
it’s produced from the root which has no idea
how icky the rest of your hair has gotten.
Going “no poo” anyway?
Consider using a mix of dry starches or clay
to mop up that messy noggin.
A less extreme version of this movement
is called “co-washing,” short for
Washing you hair with Conditioner.
People following this regimen skip the shampoo step and
just use rinse-out conditioners.
Trina: Does it work? Sort of.
Conditioners have some of the ingredients that actually clean your hair,
but not as many as shampoos,
so they won’t dry our hair out as much.
They also have slippery silicones that help combs and brushes
glide through your hair easier,
That’s why conditioners help detangle.
So sure, go ahead, don’t wash your hair.
所以 来吧 别洗头
Or just use conditioner.
That’s totally up to you.
It’s probably less damaging in the long run.
but it also smells bad.
And hair strands are actually dead,
so if you damage your current hair
the new stuff growing out of your head
starts with a healthy clean slate either way.
What you SHOULD NOT DO is try
weird gimmicks or home remedies
without researching first.
You shouldn’t use baking soda and vinegar to clean your hair.
For example, it’s an old wives tale
and it’s actually bad for your hair.
Vinegar has a low pH
meaning it’s quite acidic and putting
acid in wet hair is very damaging to your cuticles.
and there’s really no benefit.
Shampooing your hair can dry it out
but it’s not nearly as bad for your hair as dyeing, relaxing
or doing other chemical or heat treatments to your hair.
The fancy claims on shampoo bottles may not work for you,
but one thing’s for sure:
it’ll help your hair look, feel, and smell cleaner.
And that’s a win for all of us.
