Do you use shampoo everyday?

I don't use shampoo everyday, but I do use hair conditioner everyday. I heard that when you shampoo your hair everyday, it will take away the oils in your scalp. I guess it's true. I did an experiment on myself, I only shampoo my hair every other day and just use conditioner. I observed that it made my hair silky. More manageable. Do you agree? What's your opinion about this? Care to share some hair care tips?

actually i don't really use shampoo. i can't really remember the last time i did put shampoo on my hair. everytime i use shampoo, lots of my hair fall. and i get dandruffs... maybe it depends on the sensitivity of the person's scalp.

well i do not use shampoo always while taking a bath but i use it periodically ie after one or two days. well i do not support you fully as I used to do this earlier but i didn't help make my hair sily. One should use shampoos and conditioners periodically

I dont shampoo my hair every day I just do it twice a week.I normally massage my scalp with a little warm oil and leave it for an hour before my bath.This keep my hair very soft and silky.It leaves a sheen.

Hi There, I think it is like everything, if you do it too much it will hurt you. I think shampooing too much will take away the oils and dry up your hair. That is pretty much natural. That being said, I do shampoo everyday. If I don't my hair ends up all over the place. Can't really do that when I have to go to work everyday. :) cheers,

Yes I do shampoo daily.I kind of got used to it.I hate that oily look without shampoo which gives that bouncy look.

i wash my hair most every day unless i am in a hurry or something because if i dont wash it every day, my scalp starts to get really itchy, but i dont dry it, air drying is the best for your hair.

I thought that I was the only one who used conditioner without shampoo! Just like you, I can't shampoo my hair daily or it gets stripped of all the oils. Someone with thin or fine hair could not understand this issue. They assume that everyone enjoys easy daily hair maintenance and that is not so, especially for women who have thick or long hair. I use conditioner at least daily and shampoo three to four times weekly. Thanks for the lovely post!

I go to the gym and I also swim almost daily, I kind of feel I need to shampoo my hair every day lol. I suppose if I didn't do things like that I could get away with not shampooing.

I use shampoo everyday that's my i have falling hair. But I use conditioner before after shampooing. My hair is dry and has split-ends now I'm worrying about my hair's health. Do you think I need to rebond it?

I think what you should need to have is a hotoil treatment. Rebonding your hair will make it more drier. Goodluck!

I keep my hair cut so very short that I never use shampoo, as I just wash my head along with my face and neck. Though if you care for some old home remedies, if you put a tablespoon or two of honey into a bottle of shampoo it will also make your hair silky.

Yes I do shampoo every day. If I don't my hair get itchy. But I don't used shampoo directly on my hair, it's very drying. What I do is to add water to the shampoo and then I use it on my hair.

Oh yes, those dandruffs really would be the problem. But did you know that too much shampoo can cause you to have dandruffs too? Thanks for sharing.

No i don't shampoo my hair everyday but i grease it. I'm mixed with Indian and Negro so i would have a hell of a time trying to comb my hair if i did that. Most of the time my hair is braided or in fine plates so i shampoo once every two weeks. that's around the time when it gets dirty.

i use shampoo every other day. cause it was discussed in our nursing lesson that using shampoo every day is not that good to our hair. since our scalp releases natural oil and other substance that makes our hair stronger and healthy. using shampoo every day removes hair natural substances.

Wow, I never thought about using conditioner every day even if i don't shampoo first! It sounds like you are very happy with the resuts. I too agree that shampooing every day strips your hair of natural oils so I wash mine every second day. If I leave my hair for more than two days, it gets greasy and I hate the feeling! If you want your hair to be even silkier and shinier, just pour a cup full of vinegar through your hair and comb it through after you've conditioned it in the shower. It makes it really raelly shiny and soft. Just a word of warning: don't pour it over you after you've shaved your legs because it runs down and stings!
