    Default The effect of not washing your hair on MPB

    Hey there

    Its strange, the longer i do not wash my hair, the thicker it looks. By not washing my hair i mean not shampooing. I do let the water run over my head when im in the shower (Everyday). I use toppik and hairspray to style and cover my thinning hair.

    it really looks better when i dont shampoo but i dont want this routine to be more harmful then helpful.

    My question now is: is it possible to lose more hair if i dont shampoo? i guess there will be hairspray and skin oil that is not coming out by the water alone. It shouldnt have any effect on MBP right?

    Hey tizzle, its better not to wash your hair, let the natural oils and what not build up, there supposed to be there to protect the scalp...although it wont stop the rate at which they fall out if the cause is DHT....however generic shampoos have alot of chemicals in them which dry out the hair and scalp...

    thx for your response

    the only thing that worries me though, is that i once read that a sebum build-up can cause hair loss too. (Alopecia seborrhoica its called on wikipedia (German Wikipedia))

    In the end it doesnt really matter if you dont wash your hair or not...there are extremely unhealthy people out there that smoke, drink take drugs and still have heads of hair...if its in your genes basically your ****ed either way...im trying to accept it for myself and i am only just 21...considering taking fin or prop...i dont know just yet...

    My hair looks thicker after I don't wash it at all, I mean not even water.

    Since I started balding I have had to wash my hair everyday, it gets too greasy, the sebum build up in the morning is ridiculous so I have to wash it.

    I am guessing you don't get this?

    I find my hair looks thicker if I don't wash it as well, and more manageable. If you look at homeless men on the street, rarely will you see them with MPB. Maybe there is something there?

    this is so dumb. Not washing your hair is just denial that you think this will help keep your hair. The hair you don't wash will eventually come out and it's not good to keep your hair dirty because the pores need to breathe. Who ever dosen't wash their hair becuase it looks better is in serious denial.
