I saw a study once about hair washing. It takes roughly a month or so for your hair to stabilize but it does not get greasy or smelly. It's happy to look after itself. Unfortunately we've all been convinced that if you don't wash your hair everyone will hate you and you'll smell.

Consider this: Six months without deodorant does NOT mean six months without washing your pits... Six month without washing your hair is unarguably the fool's choice in this poll. Nice job thinking it through, Forty Percent-ers! Haha!

Have you people smelled funky armpits before?? Waaaay funkier than smelly hair, that's for sure!

Your hair doens't need to be washed everyday but every other day at least, but bodily hygiene is far more important so because of that I said pit reek is worse.

If I don't wash my hair for a couple days it gets Soooo greasy...

I shave my head, so the choice was easy.

Of course most girls say hair mess is worse lol. With all this hair it is unbearably uncomfortable to not wash it for more than a day or two. I can't imagine not being able to wash my hair, I'd rather have stinky pits than gross oily flaky hair.

I would just put conditioner in my hair. It's not a wash, but almost.

I pick deo... I could always get my hair braided and just wear weave... But in the south especially in the summer no way u can walk outside with out deo...

I couldnt go a week without washing my hair...besides good soap and/or cologne is just as good as deo.

If you just use water, your hair will actually work itself out quite well. It's a rough time getting there but when you do, the final product is really nice. Google "no poo hair" for more info on it.

Do you know how great any braids I had in my hair would stay? The grip the oils of your hair give you when doing certain styles would be awesome with all that time to build up.

I said no deo would be worst because I wear a hat 90% of the time so I could just cover it with that.

I have to wash my hair every day. I've tried going a couple days, but by the second day you could fry French fries with all the grease in my hair. So I chose to go with out deodorant.

I have long hair and it would be flat and my scalp would be itchier than hell..I'd deal with the stinkiness more than the itchy head

My hair is down to my waist, and a curly mess if I don't wash it. So I'd go with the pit reek. Shouldn't be too bad with bathing.

I would go with no deodorant and just shower three times per day. That should take care of the pit reek. Not much you can do about hair that you can't wash though.

I'd be rocking the white man dreads, and the ridicule I would receive for that would be way worse than no deodorant haha

I could go without deodorant for six months with no problem at all. Bathing is really helpful...

I have really greasy hair and perspire more than the average person. Either would be a nightmare. I would just shave my head and put on deodorant.

Eeek. Don't even want to imagine six months of greasy hair. My hair is down to my waist. It'd be beyond disgusting.

Stinky pits stink! bad! big time!

Just say no to stinky pits!


06/29/12 7:58 pm

I would find other ways to keep smelling fresh but the dirty hair-- heck no. I have thick long hair so that would be bad.

You can wash your pits and keep them bacteria-free, but keeping your hair from being stinky and gross without washing it at all would be impossible. I'd rather just shave my head.

I don't sweat. I do but it's only when I'm stressed or work out (obviously) but I have curly hair, if I don't wash it at least very other day the curls become frizzy and it's just a hot mess. I guess I could do dreadlocks or cut my hair super short.

If I say pit reek does that mean I absolutely have to wash my hair every day? I'm confused. Maybe too much water on the brain .....

I can put powder under my arms, but I cannot deal with dirty hair.

You can wash your pits frequently and keep your arms down. The look and smell of dirty hair is unmistakable and disgusting, though. I need to be able to wash and condition my curls every few days!!

I have a buzz cut, so I chose pits.

Body wash would work as deodorant cant go without washing hair

Under arms. Cuz like some someone said, I work in the water too. I teach water yoga, and for some reason I don't have much BO. I also use powder to help sweat problems.

I have very short hair, so hair is the obvious choice.

This was a hard decision but i picked washing my hair but I only have to wash once a week cuz my hair doesn't get oily and have dreads. But the non washing would catch up eventually. I just take more showers and use more perfume instead of deodorant

Deodorant burns my skin. I work in the water so I'm clean. I use dusting powder. If I need anything

It isn't clear to be which button is voting for what. But, I'd rather do with out deoderant. Because i can wash my pitts several times a day and use baking soda on them. I'd rather actually BE CLEAN than merely smell clean.

I cannot go two days without a shower. Instead on deoterant i can use a lot of perfume idk i would make do!

When I came into this country I was stuffed in the back of a semi truck with 74 of my fellow Mexicans.

You haven't smelled stank until you've been confined in a small hot space with a bunch of Chicanos that just filled up on al pastor burritos before taking the trip into America.

My hair is generally 1/4 inch long and I hate BO. It is the worst smell known to man.

I have no hair and am allergic to deodorant. I do wash my scalp, however ...


06/29/12 1:25 pm

Washing your hair. At least with no deodorant as long as you bathe regularly it won't be a big deal.
