Since then, I haven't washed it consistently. You'd never be able to tell by looking at it or feeling it- it's soft, and not greasy looking at all. I rationalize a bit, yeah. People didn't start using shampoo until about 100 years ago, and not everyone had lice, right?
I've been reading alternate methods of washing it, that are cheaper as well. A baking soda/water wash, with apple cider vinegar/water rinse. Haven't tried it, seems like it would be a bit stinky, but apparently it balances out the pH levels in your hair.
I hate the feel now when I put shampoo or conditioner in it. Squeaky, dry, more oily feeling than if I hadn't washed it. It hasn't been an issue since I started.
Until now. Before I would never tell people, because it wasn't a big deal. But I told one of my friends, and she thinks it's the nastiest thing imaginable. "You'll get lice, it looks so greasy!" (Even though before she knew she complimented me on how soft it was/good it looked) More people began to find out, and I get a lot of beef from people about it now. They say it's the unhealthiest and least hygenic thing they've ever heard. To me, it's natural and normal now. It doesn't feel or look gross, but people freaking out about it has made me think about it, and reconsider consistent poo'ing again.
What do you guys think? Completely nasty, or ok if it looks/smells/feels good?
