When It Comes To Shampoo, Less Is More

Americans love to shampoo. We lather up an average of 4.59 times a week, twice as much as Italians and Spaniards, according to shampoo-maker Procter & Gamble.

美国人喜欢洗头,平均每星期洗4.59次,是意大利和西班牙人的两倍。两倍也!!!有木有!!!

But that’s way too often, say hair stylists and dermatologists. Daily washing, they say, strips the hair of beneficial oil (called sebum) and can damage our locks.

发型师和皮肤医生说这个样子洗头太频繁,把对头发好处多多的油都洗光光,头发当然坏掉了!!!啧啧啧

Shampoo Is Big Business

The current trend of frequent shampoos may have started on May 10, 1908, when the New York Times published a column advising women that it was OK to wash their hair every two weeks. At that time, once a month was the norm.

很久以前,女性其实一个月才洗一次头。结果在1908年五月十日,纽约时报告诉大家可以两个星期洗一次。这下开了女性频繁洗头的先例了。。。

Decades later, TV marketing campaigns began to convince us that daily washing was the thing to do. A 1970s Faberge ad for Farrah Fawcett shampoo is one example.

过了几十年,电视广告开始广而告之:每天洗头是时下最流行的!!!

“All you have to do is watch her running in slow motion on a beach with her hair flopping gracefully in the wind,” says Steve Meltzer, a former ad executive. The idea was, “Wash your hair with this stuff, and you, too, can be like Farrah Fawcett,” Meltzer says.

Madison Avenue sold people on the idea that they could shampoo their way back to beauty.

随着洗发精的广告越来越多,人们开始相信洗头会让人变美丽。

Ads also convinced us that daily hair washing is healthy. Remember the Breck girls? Or how about Christie Brinkley’s body-building for hair ad with Prell?

广告蛊惑人们相信每天洗头很健康。

Skipping Shampoos Is, Well, Un-American

不用洗发精就不是美国人!!!

Americans took easily to the idea that we should shampoo frequently. And lots of us find it disgusting to shampoo any less than once a day. Take some fitness-conscious college students from Georgetown University, for example. When I told them about the old-time advice to wash once a month, they almost gagged.

大部分人开始认为如果哪天不洗头就很脏。华盛顿城大学(长春藤名校之一)的一些学生听说一个月洗一次头的老习惯后差点吐了。

“That is way too little hair shampooing,” laughs Jane Caudell-Feagan.

“If I don’t shower every day, my hair gets greasy, so I think it’s completely heinous,” says her friend Ashley Carlini. After a workout, they say, it would be disgusting not to wash your hair.

Eco-Conscious ‘No-‘Poo’ Movement

Given our cultural propensity to lather up frequently, it may be shocking that in some eco-conscious circles of society, some people are giving up shampoo.

但是目前的一些环境保护组织居然不用洗发精??!!!

“There’s a lot of people doing this no-shampoo movement,” says 20-something blogger Jeanne Haegele. She writes a blog called LifeLessPlastic.

”目前有很多人在试着不用洗发精,“ 一名二十来岁的博客写手何葛莱如是说。

In an attempt to buy fewer items with plastic packaging, Haegele recently went three months without using any shampoo. Instead, she washed her hair with baking soda twice a week and conditioned it with a vinegar rinse.

为了减少塑料的使用,何葛莱三个月没用洗发精。她每星期用小苏打代替洗发精洗头两次,然后用醋代替护发素。

She says her hair didn’t smell, and her friends were very supportive. “Maybe they were secretly wondering why I smelled like a jar of pickles,” she says jokingly.

她说她的头发没有臭味,她的朋友们也很支持她。“可能她们会在私底下嘀咕为什么我身上会散发出酸黄瓜的味道,”她笑着说。

She ended the no-‘poo experiment after developing a bad case of dandruff, but Haegele says she might try it again.

三个月后因为她的头皮屑太多,她放弃了这个实验,但她说她可能会再试。

She recalls the biggest surprise was that her hair didn’t get very greasy. For now, she’s using shampoo bars a few times a week.

她说最大的惊喜是她的头发并没有变很油。从今往后,她每星期用洗头皂洗头的次数很少。

Dermatologist Recommends Shampooing Less

皮肤专科医生推荐少用洗发精

Experts say Haegele’s observations are not flaky. As she washed less, her sebaceous glands began producing less sebum oil.

专家说何葛莱的发现有道理。洗头的频率少,皮脂腺出的油也少。

“If you wash your hair every day, you’re removing the sebum,” explains Michelle Hanjani, a dermatologist at Columbia University. “Then the oil glands compensate by producing more oil,” she says.

“如果你每天洗头,油都给你洗没了。” (纽约市的)哥伦比亚大学皮肤科医生汉佳力如是说。“然后皮脂腺又使劲造更多的油。”

She recommends that patients wash their hair no more than two or three times a week.

她建议每星期洗头两到三次。

There’s also a lot of variation among hair types. African-Americans and people with curly hair can go even longer between washes compared to folks with straight hair.

头发有很多类型。黑人的头发和卷发和应该比直发洗得更少次。

So, it seems, less is more. And maybe our grandmothers were on to something after all.

总之,头发洗得越少越好。祖母们都知道这个道理。

  1. 执子之手偕老

    我觉得凡事讲个度,不能天天洗,也不能老不洗。

  2. 我三天洗一次头发,不然头发就油油的成绺了~
    可是我的皮肤很干,为什么脸不是越洗越油呢:(

  3. 我姥姥据说一辈子没洗过头,反正我记事起,她就没洗过,说洗头后,头发太滑,就不好编缵了,天天用那种很细密的梳子来刮刮,我那时也没觉得她脏,呵呵。

  4. 每个人的发质不同。我一般三天洗一次头,要是不洗,头发不像一般人那样发油,而是发干,用洗发精洗过,再用些发膜,头发就会柔顺油亮。

  5. 我一直都是短发,每天早上起来就是个鸡窝头,所以从初中开始就养成了每天洗头的习惯,一直改不掉。:(

    我妈妈以前说过:“你再每天洗头,就只有两个后果。一是变成秃头,二是把你的头发洗成白色。”

  6. 水油平衡很关键。我就是天天洗,尤其是压力特别大,试验强度高加上熬夜的时候,不洗完全不能见人!亏我还是研究皮肤油脂代谢的。。最近换了一种洗发水,而且停用护发素,改用少许发膜。终于有所改观了,勉强撑到2-3天。回国的时候我一周洗两次就行了,因为不用见到老板,完全没有压力!

  7. 因人而异,还要看你是否使用头发定型剂,有的人每天都喷发胶之类的东西,那就要多洗几次头。

    北美的中国男生经常被人批评头发走油,头皮屑横行,发型乱糟糟,可能需要多洗几次。

  8. 想起几十年的洗发史。

    最早的时候,是用碱洗,可能艾园很多人都没听说过,就是那种白色的粉末,很强的碱性,手在碱水里时间长了会脱皮。

    比我老的人还用皂角洗头,皂角树上长的一种像扁豆的果实,揉碎了可以出些泡泡。大概可以去污。

    后来用肥皂洗,就是那种黄黄色的,像一块方形蛋糕样的东西,每人每月一块还是半块那种。

    再后来进步了,有了洗衣粉,塑料袋子装的白色粉末,抓一把揉在头发里,手和头皮都有热热的感觉。那个很去污,一洗一脸盆黑水。

    最后进步到用洗发香波。

发言的人请给自己一个比较好辨识(也比较固定的)ID,凡是没名字的,我就删掉了。
