    Who’s going to hire an actress with oily hair. Bacteria is gonna enjoy eating the oil on her head and face!

    There are ways you can get rid of oily hair, if you don’t wash your hair for awhile. It’s not that hard to figure it out how. If Cate wants to stop washing her hair, let her do it. It’s her decisions. At least she has an excellent reason of doing it. Sooner or later, people would slowly start doing the same thing too.

    maybe she could create a co-op where oil from their hair is used as a biofuel…..

    She’s from Australia anyhow, don’t they just go for months out there with the kangaroos and not wash themselves??
    People with millions of dollars should be expected to be the first to go green anyhow, seeing they are the only ones who can afford it. If these companies weren’t also in it for the money they would make it more affordable to the common man!!!!

    A priest leads by example rather than by the speech of a preacher. Where there is a lead, others will follow . . .

    I’ve always found her very mannish-looking. I guess now she’ll look like a man with greasey hair…

    your hair doesnt need to be washed as much as people do, ppl didnt use to wash their hair at all, they would bathe once a month. you hair has natural oils that keep it healthy, and if you stop washing your hair within a month or so it will keep itself clean. besides she still showers so its not like she is going to smell or anything SHE IS DOING HER PART IN SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT!
    you should all do your own part in this, we all destroyed the world together now we all must save it together.
