I wash mine once a day with shampoo and conditioner. I've read somewhere that it is better to wash the hair less frequently, maybe every other day. But i just can't stand not washing my hair daily. Plus, i have oily hair, so i guess it's justifiable. How about you, do you wash your hair everyday?

It`s individually. If you have oily hair -of course, you must wash it daily or at least once at 2 days. You must use very mild or neutral shampoon. An advise: finish with vinegar-diluted in water. Arround a coffee-cup vinegar. I wash my hair twice weekly.

thank you for your advise. but what does the vinegar do? and won't your hair smell "sour" like vinegar of you use it? =)

I agree with Magica. I used to daily wash my hair but it was making my hair dryer. Then I had my hair rebonded and I was advised not to wash it for 3 days when I left the beauty salon. I noticed that oil is coming out and it was good for my hair. Since then, I just wash my hair twice a week. But like Magica said, it depends. When I was in Thailand I worked in an airconditioned classroom, I lived in an airconditioned apartment, and I take the airconditioned bus and there is less pollution--at least where I was working. But here in the Philippines, I don't think I can stand two days without washing my hair. The air pollution is just too bad.

yes, i wash my hair everyday.it's not oily or anything like that, it can even get dry sometimes. but if i don't wash it everyday i usually feel like my hair is dirty and it can even get itchy when it's hot (i don't have dandruff). with my busy schedule, i sweat a lot..well i guess not that much but enough to make me feel sticky that i really have to wash my hair. i just use conditioner so it won't dry up

i wash my hair everyday, can't stand the grease if i didn't do that at all. but it has been recommended to shampoo just every other day so as not to deplete the hair of natural oils

I wash it daily when i take showers..yeah its true because of the hard chemicals in shampoos and conditioners that might make your hair beautiful for a while but they make them weak.i use shampoos which i can use on daily purpose..light shampoos not hard ones...i know if you got oily hair its just unbelievable not to wash them everyday.i do not use conditioner everyday but shampoo yes everyday..

I have really dry hair, so I only wash my hair every other day... At the most. On an average I wash my hair about two or three times a week. I wish I had oily hair so I could wash it more!

I wash and condition my hair daily. I have rather oily hair and going one day without washing and conditioning makes my hair look a mess so I have to do it. Washing your hair every day strips your hair of the oils it needs to stay healthy, that's why they say you should wash every other day, but condition your hair daily. Too much washing can actually damage the hair folicle and root if you're not careful.

I have also heard that it is better for your hair to wash it only every other day. I am with you though. I wash and condition my hair every day. If I don't it feels dirty to me and drives me crazy!

I do so three times a week, because my hair looks MUCH better when it already has product in it from the other day. It's easier to handle and takes less time, and I don't look like a bum either. It's also a LOT less frizzy.

no i actually wash my hair every two weeks i am african american mixed with portuguese and my grade of hair has its own mind. its thick and it jus does its own thing. and plus my hair isnt that oily and stuff and i dont sweat on a regular basis so there really is no need for me to wash it everyday or even every other day.

I am thinking of having straight hair again because I am so bored with it. I like almost all color. But I think I like red the most and I dont know the reason. Maybe it just fits my character. I'm not really brave though or maybe I just want to be brave:P But for my hair I'd prefer natural although I once paint my hair red.
