    It depends on the season… during the summer, definitely everyday. During the winter, mostly every other day and sometimes everyday. My hair is very thick and long and takes forever to dry but I still need to keep this bunch clean! :)

    I thought everyone washes their hair daily. O.o
    My sister was disgusted that I only wash once a day, since she washes 2 or 3 times. I think it’s cos we live in a tropical climate, perhaps? It’s hot everyday here.

  3. I can go about 5 days without my hair going greasy and me getting iffy about it so 2 thumbs up for me :)

    If I would wash my hair every day I think I would go bald ?!
    My hair is v e r y dry and I need to treat it with masques , balms , lotions , … I couldn’t imagine attacking it with shampoo every single day.

    I have to wash my hair at least twice everyday cause if not I feel like it’s dirty.It doesn’t get greasy but I just feel dirty if I don’t wash it twice a day

  6. Once every other day! =]

  7. I try to do it every other day to preserve my haircolor but sometimes my hair is just to greasy! haha Then I need to do it everyday :)

    Most of the time everyday, I live with smokers and can’t stand that icky smell in my hair. Sometimes I still my bros detangler(because he has thick short hair thats alwasy messy) and spray it in my hair instead of washing lol.

    I have long curly hair, so I wash it 2 or 3 times per week. It all depends on how my curls are looking, if they’re still looking good then they don’t need to be washed. I’ve gone through phases when I was younger of washing it every day, and every second, but it ruins curly hair. I don’t have oily hair luckily, but if I did have straight hair that showed oil, then I’d wash it every day.

  10. I guess I am really lucky cause my hair is long and thick…
    So I wash it every other day, sometimes every two days, depends….If I washed it every day it would dry it out!

    once a week! i have long, colored, curly hair. my hair looks its best 3 or 4 days after it’s been washed!

    Once a week. If I wash more often than every 5 days or so, it gets incredibly dry and brittle. It would take two weeks or more to ever look greasy. I occasionally spritz some body spray in at the roots and comb it through to eliminate any smells it may have picked up along the way. In particularly dry weather, I rinse it thoroughly and condition it once or twice between washes.

    How do you people have time to wash your hair 2 or more times a day??? You obviously have no children. 😉 I only wash my hair every 3 days partly because I don’t have the time, partly because I have dry and frizzy hair that actually looks its best the day after I washed it.
    When I was a teenager, my Mum didn’t let me wash my hair more often than once a week, she used to say it would get more greasy if I did, so I was walking around with greasy hair for days. :( Yuck. I can’t believe I let her talk me into it!
