Shaving my head because I dont use shampoo

I decided to stop using shampoo but my hair is so greasy. It's like greasy halfway down my head. Would it be easier just to shave it all and start over?

Were you washing with something besides shampoo?

Not everyone can "no-poo."  Now go wash your hair!

You're still supposed to wash with something. My sister uses baking soda and apple cider vinegar. And there's going to be a transition period where your hair will be greasy.

I heard that can dry out your hair. Plenty of people just use water.

Use a cleansing conditioner. I use a WEN knockoff called Hair One

There are products that are chemical free that you can use(powder) or you can make your own.

I still shampoo, but not that often because I have dry hair and going a couple of days wouldn't make my hair oily at all. I shampoo about once week at the most but more often every other week or less.

Yes, eventually. Most people start out using something.

It would be easier to just use shampoo.
