Personanlly, I'm worried about smell too...but if you're washing it with warm water (no shampoo) I don't see the problem...
However, the point of the thread is, is this different for guys with MPB? As DHT accumlates in the hair when not washed?
I know clearly, that not washing your hair won't halt MPB alone.....BUT men with MPB don't wash their hair, will that hasten the process?

shaved my head for 4 years in jan 08 i grew my hair out.
For about 6 months i used Niz since i heard it was good for you. It turned my hair into crap, my sides and other non MPB areas were thinning. I heard people use other shampoos or conditioners to help this. BUt all it did was make my hair dependent for shampooing everyday. I was shedding alot, flakes, dryness. Tried to stop shampooing but things got worse. Guess my hair got addicted to it
In Jan 09 i shaved my head again for 2 weeks got some sun. Grew my hair out, only shampoo 1x every 10 days, just so my hair smells ok. Alot of the hair i lost came back, my hair was darker and thicker. All was awesome.
But this week i had a out of control dandruff problem with lots of shedding. Im using Niz and selsun blue. Im hopeing that in a week this will be over and i can cut the use of shampoos.
So basically ya, i think cutting shampoos will help. It did for me. But i have bad hair, that im guessing needs PH balance all the time or something.
Funny you should mention that... I think I read somwhere that washing with vinegar is need for PH balance...not that I'd do that...
But I'm confused should I just use Alcepin once or twice a week - despite the website saying I should use it daily to wash the DHT out of my hair?
