Innovative or Insane - How Far is Too Far with DIY Methods?

Obviously I am a fan of DIY methods of grooming, or else I would not have created this blog. However I do think there is a fine line between innovative and insane. I viewed a video by PrettyDimples01 on YouTube where she demonstrates her method of washing her scalp without washing her hair.
Now don't get me wrong, I know about 4+ hours of twisting or braiding hair and I understand wanting to preserve a style as long as possible. I like her idea of applying a baking soda paste directly to the scalp but I think it is a bit overboard to cover the ends of our hair with plastic bags to avoid wetting them. When its time to wash our hair, its time to wash our hair. Maybe I'm being overly critical, what do you all think?

  1. You said it best "when it is time to wash our hair, its time to wash our hair". Back in the days, Sea Breeze was reigning when it came time to freshen up the scalp without washing. At some point you gotta just use some soap and water an let the style go!
