To Shampoo or not to Shampoo - that is the question

I was reading an article, in Reader's Digest I think, about shampooing hair.  I have very fine, greasy, thin hair which I used to shampoo daily.  Because I've been having problems with a spotty scalp I started shampooing every alternate day.  This article said that we should wash our hair, everyday if we wish, but with water only - massaging with fingers, not nails, as if there is shampoo on and rinsing well, and to only use shampoo at most once a week.  poliphilo and I have both started doing this and my hair feels thicker.  It does look different than when Ive shampooed it but I don't think it looks worse, if you know what I mean.

Anything that can help really.  My hair being so fine is why I keep it so short, it just looked straggly and stuck to my head when it was longer.  Also it is definitely receding, which again this article said could be due to too much shampooing.
