A WOMAN who believes her hair will clean itself naturally is unaware that it smells disgusting.
Emma Bradford has not washed her hair since April because she thinks it does not need shampooing to stay clean, and pretends not to know that her locks now have the odour of a wet dog.
She said: “Hair is self-cleaning, just like cats and ovens. If I lathered so much as a drop of conditioner into it, I’d f**k it up beyond repair.
“Instead my scalp looks after my hair by pumping out natural oils. Sure, there was a brief phase where it felt a bit dirty and my boyfriend left me out of disgust, but now my hair’s got a lustrous, greasy sheen.
“And by shunning all the harsh chemicals in hair care products, I get to feel like a progressive eco-warrior. I don’t even buy deodorants, no matter how many times my friends beg me to use them.”
Tying up her hair in a lank, straggly ponytail, she added: “I say I don’t wash my hair for the environment, but it’s mainly just to have something to talk about at parties. Not that I get invited to many of them anymore.”
