STEPHEN Fry says he hasn’t used shampoo on his hair for eight years.
The TV brainbox and funnyman, 62, believes it makes his locks frizzy.
And he also revealed the only hair or skin product he uses is the occasional lick of soap.
The star of shows such as A Bit of Fry & Laurie and QI says: “It’s been about seven or eight years now, I don’t use shampoo.
“I just stand under a shower. Water. That’s the best way.
“All you people who use shampoo and conditioner, all you do is strip all the oils out and make it ridiculously flyaway with shampoo.”
Speaking on the Homo Sapiens podcast, he added: “And skin is a similar thing. This obsession with micro/bio gut, there’s also the skin as well.
“I haven’t been one for chemicals on me — skin creams and grooming and after shave, never been one for it.
“And I think it does make your skin very good, but soap occasionally, and Castile soap, it’s a more natural soap, that doesn’t lather as much.”
While shampoo is said to clean the scalp and hair, too much can affect the scalp’s microorganisms.
That may cause inflammation and the development of bad bacteria.
Daily shampooing also strips the hair of natural essential oils which keep hair looking glossy.
