I had long hair. I use standard shampoo and conditioner with sodium lauryl sulfate and all. But I only washed my hair every 6 days before. In a society where most people wash their hair daily, that sounds awful, but honestly my hair was fine until the 6th day (and then, yeah, it needed a wash).
I was planning to finish my shampoo and conditioner and switch to no-poo. Which honestly would still be months in the future since I don't go through too much of it.
So then I got a hair cut. It's not *short* but I had 6 inches taken off and it's heavily layered. Shoulder-length for the longest layers. If that matters at all. Now I cannot go 3 days without my hair needing a wash.
What's going on here? Oh, and I got that haircut in early December so it's been a while and still hasn't "settled down." What is it about cutting my hair made it so oily? Is it that I'm, I dunno, producing the same amount of oil in my scalp but I have a lot less hair for that oil to saturate?
If it matters, I have "dry" type hair (which is probably obvious given that I could go 6 days without washing it in any way).
