How often do you wash your hair?

For me, I wash my hair everyday. I don't feel very comfortable going places without taking a shower and washing my hair. But I have a friend that washes her hair twice a week. I ask her why she doesn't wash it everyday and she says, "IF I wash my hair everyday, it feels like it's drying out." What about you?

I know people who wash their hair once a week. Most of them complain that long hair is 'difficult to manage' and takes a long time to dry. I keep long hair too, and I just don't understand what is wrong with hair taking a little long to dry! I also know people who think that if you wash your hair everyday, they break or fall more - I guess for them 'wash' means 'shampoo', and that is why the myth. I believe that hair should be washed everyday (but without a shampoo) so that it remains healthy and bouncy.

I have tried different anti-dandruff shampoo's for it but it seems that they do not make an effect with it. I also have an excessive dandruff problem which i have found impossible to treat- its been with me all my life. Every morning which I wake up I find my pillow dirty with bits of hair and dandruff and it just makes me feel really dirty - it makes me too embarrassed to ever find a girlfriend. So, I normally wear a hat or a beanie but whenever I take my hat or beanie off a lot of dandruff falls down and people would very easily notice that I have dandruff.

I wash my hair every two - three days. It is different for every individual, as you can see from what's already been posted! Mine dries out if I wash it too much, it only gets greasy after three days of not washing (so I always wash on the third day!). To each his own!

Same with you, I also wash my hair almost everyday. sometimes if I'm very busy, I wash my hair once in 2 days. But I don't feel comfortable. because my hair will be itched and oiled. And I smell something bad smell from My hair. it's so uncomfortable. Maybe it's because I live in Indonesia which has dry season. When I went to another country like China in winter, I can wash my hair three times a week. because it's cold and I don't feel my hair oiled and bad smell.. ^^

I wash my hair every other day - because it IS thin. Often, on the "other" days, it just seems more manageable, probably due to build-up of styling products that make it easier to style. It may not necessarily be a good thing, but it works for me.
