As we wrote this, we wondered, is "shampooing" an actual word? (Quick check: It does exist. We're all good.) And if you're wondering how many ways can you shampoo your hair, you'll be surprised. If you dread having to wash your hair (dry shampoo can only go so far, *cough* day four...) because your scalp feels like it’s incredibly stripped, then there are other ways to deal with de-gunking your hair and it doesn't have to be shampoo, rinse, repeat anymore.

While you may still want to nourish your hair and keep it clean, you don't want to strip your crown of glory of essential moisture. Try these ways to give you hair that's good to go and see how far it gets you. And before dreading how weighed down your hair might get, hear #TeamCLEO out on the different ways of shampooing you have to try.

There is talk about the “no poo” (that is, no shampoo!) method that limits sudsing up to once a month. A CLEO staffer has experienced doing this when it was all the rage ten years ago. The verdict: Don’t do it. You must wash your hair; as you must wash your hands.

But consider a happier medium: co-washing means leaving out the shampoo and relying solely on conditioner when washing. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, have dry hair or are a colour junkie, co-washing is perfect. Here’s a conditioner you can try to ease yourself into this new routine: Specially tailored for normal to dry hair, it nourishes hair deeply and leaves it feeling softer.

Unshampooed hair retains more of its natural oils, so your conditioner’s moisturising agents will leave strands even smoother. But you can’t do this forever eventually, you have to (sham)poo. Go for a clarifying one for good cleanse, then close with a nourishing conditioner. This is a cleansing cream you can try, that ensures that you’re not doing the just-conditioner route, and hair still gets a clean.
