This is a weird topic. I have decided to grow my hair long. I have always been using a shampoo or conditioner every other day. Sometimes I would use shampoo all week or sometimes I alternate using Shampoo or conditioner every other day. Which is healthier? What works for you?

Shampooing every day is not too great for your hair because it strips out all of the natural oils and makes your hair too dry. I generally shampoo every second day, but I condition every day.

Thanks for the response. Is it really safe to use conditioner everyday?

well i do use shampoo and conditioner on my hair but not everyday. i use it twice a week. using too much shampoo on your hair may leave hair with lot dryness and using too much conditioner may also make hair limp. and my hair are a lot oily and got a lot of dandruff so i never use shampoo or conditioner on my hair daily. just due to these reasons :) happy mylotting

I have heard a lot of people saying that using shampoo everyday is unhealthy. I am not sure about conditioner though. Some people does not wet their hair when taking a Bath. Would it be better if we do not wash our hair daily? Thanks for the response

I think you should only shampoo your hair twice a week since it strips off the nutrients needed by your hair making them dull and dry. You may even lose your hair because of using too much shampoo. It would be best if you just use conditioner everyday and shampoo your hair twice a week in order to remove the dirt in your hair which your conditioner can't remove.

Taking shower and having shampoo and conditioner isn't good for the hair [they said] which I agree about that. Using shampoo and conditioner every other day is the best thing to do. Don't use too much conditioner, if you do, apply conditioner mostly on the end of your hair where split ends occur. With shampoo, before applying in your hair put a little water with the shampoo. Rinsing is very important with your hair too. That's what I do with my hair when I am taking a shower. Massage your scalp with the tip of your fingers softly. And with conditioner, for a softer result let i stand/stay in your hair for 3-5minutes. That's my routine

I do try to minimize the use of shampoo or contioner. Normally I talk a bath at least twice a day. I use those products only once a day every two days. Thanks for the response

They said, when you use shampoo everyday it makes your hair unhealthy. But of course we need them everytime we having a bath to make it smells nice and shiny, what i did is i take a bath alternate and just use small amount of shampoo. Happy posting.

Its better that you use both if you have the budget to buy it. Shampoo only used to clean your hair and conditioner must be put on to give your hair and scalp more nutrients for it to become healthy and shiny.

It's not proper to use shampoo on your hair on a daily basis. Based on my experience, it's better to do do shampooing every other day but using conditioner can be done daily. Just make sure that you are using shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type.

I do not use shampoo and conditioner to my hair every day. I use shampoo once in every one week or two weeks. I don't think it is healthy to use shampoo every day. I think you should try to use it alternate days or between once in a week. I think herbal shampoos are better than other shampoos.

well, I shampoo my hair everyday but I mix it with a little water before applying it onto my hair. I know that using shampoo everyday will strip the natural moisture of our hair, but I noticed that if I do not use shampoo everyday , my hair becomes dry and difficult to comb.

I use shampoo every other day and I use conditioner every day because my hair is dry and if I wash it too much with shampoo, it would only get drier, so I use a conditioner everyday instead as a kind of treatment.

I shampoo everytime I sweat out alot or been under the sun. But usually its every other day and I condition everyday. Its suits my hair better. Shampooing everyday drys up my hair and becomes brittle.

well. i have long hair. my hair is almost 1 and a half feet long now. i only grew it for 11months. my secret is that i use shampoo every other day. and conditioner likewise. my hair grew fast that way. i also advice you now to stay under the sun too much because it dries your hair and it causes your hair not to grow faster. that is all i can say pal.

Hello there! I'm not usually use shampoo everyday, I use shampoo every other day and I used conditioner everyday. Have you try soap powder in your hair? Many said that it is good in our hair because it will keep the hair straight, well sometimes I try it and not bad after all. Happy mylotting!

I try not to use shampoo everyday... and use conditioner like three times a week... using these two everyday can lead to dry hair... and that is a no no when one has long hair...
