I know a girl who always has her hair washed in hairdressing parlors,and some occassionally go there.I know another girl who always washes her hair in the morning,but im not used to it.I used to wash hair at night during the summer daily.I cant sleep with sweaty hair.And I hardly ever use hair dryer.I think its much better to let my hair dry naturally.Now its late autumn here,so its cool.I usually wash hair every two days in the afternoon.Is it too often?People say its not good to wash hair too often.I love to know your habits of washing hair and maybe you can give me more information about how to take good care of hair.Have a good night.

Hi sweetyethot,you have put forth a good topic to discuss.Hair care is one of the sensitive issues to deal with.Often people take care of all things except hair and meanwhile due to their neglection later suffer from hair problems.I have a moderate length hair and i wash it alternative days and i never use hair dryers for drying my hair,i feel it is best to get hair dried naturally.Use of dryers weakens hair strands.Then i make sure that i apply coconut oil to my hair properly with scalp massage and leave it overnight that is the previous night before i go for hair wash.This is the best way i know as oil is better absorbed when left overnight and it is better not to go out with oiled hair as it may lead to dandruff problems.Not just these it is also important to have proper diet with highly protein rich foods which helps in proper hair growth and maintenance.A cup of curd consumed everyday helps in good hair growth.

I wash my hair every other day in the morning as my hair is prone to being dry and I get split ends. I either use an electric fan or a hairdryer to dry my hair, but I agree with you that it's better to let hair dry naturally. I can't do that though because my hair is all wavy and it dries up all messy when I let it dry naturally LOL! So for me the best option is to use the fan. It's better than the hair dryer though because hot air damages the hair, especially when you use it directly on wet hair. Hmmm, the one girl you mentioned that gets her hair washed in a salon... my, that must be expensive! My best friend also washes her hair everyday and goes through a bottle of shampoo in a week! LOL!

hi sweetyethot^^;; i heard that one too before that washing hair everyday is not good and it would make the hair dry and unhealthy. but well it depends maybe on the shampoo and conditioner one use. when i worked outside before, i used to wash my hair every morning as like to feel fresh in the workplace and taking a full shower would make me awake since i'm not a morning person . and there are times that i wash my hair too when i got back home especially when that day was hot. Now that i work at home and wake up late in the afternoon, i wash my hair and have a shower once before i go to bed so i would have a good night sleep feeling fresh.

i always wash my hair ... as in, daily. yes, i wash it everyday because i don't feel "complete" having to take a bath without washing my hair. i shampoo my hair every other day but apply conditioner daily. i find my hair to be coarse therefore my need of a hair conditioner daily. i like to smell clean all the time and it makes me feel good having a good-smelling hair touch ur nose and smell its fragrance once in a while, . i never use hair dryer. i go to beauty parlor for hair dyeing and go on "hot oil" process on regular intervals.

Well I heard that its not good to wash your hair everyday. Especially for girls, because than your body produces more oil in your hair and than you can see that its not clean. Well I am a guy so I don't really have to worry about that. So I wash my hair everyday. Girls should wash it every second day and you won't have problems. That's what a girl told me and I don't think she was lying to me.

I wash my hair every single day, especially when I had busy days, and I can feel that my hair was somehow oily and didn't smell very good. I can't even sleep with my dirty hair. So, I just simply wash my hair every single day without any exceptions. Well, it's always simple to keep our hair healthy. Just keep it clean, wash it frequently and give more attention of your hair's needs. =) Don't give too much chemical liquids which can threat your hair.

I wash my hair everyday i take a bath. I rarely wash my hair when I have flu as it is not recommended to take a bath when their is a colds or fever. So it is better to do the half bath or sponge bath slightly sponge the body to clean it. Well, I prefer to dry my hair naturally. I do not like to use hair blowers of anything to dry my hair. Thus, I prefer my hair to dry naturally.

During summer time, i wash my hair daily during mornings, I never get very sweaty and often dirt so I'm alright during at night. During autumn and winter, i was my hair every two days, coz i don't want to use my hair dryer everyday. It damages your hair and i started to have split ends and it losses it's natural oil. Happy myloting.

I have to wash my hair every day when I am in my home country. I apply shampoo to it and then rub my hair. Then I wash the shampoo off and then put conditioner on it. I keep the conditioner on for a couple of minutes to make my hair soft and shinny. If I wash my hair less often my hair would look oily. I like my hair to feel, look and smell clean. When I am traveling in hot countries I tend to wash my hair after swimming in the sea.

Really? I wash my hair every single day, every morning to be exact. My hair becomes sticky and oily when I don't wash it the next day. And the next time I wash it, I have a lot of hair fall. I hear people say it's not good to shampoo hair everyday, but I don't know. The effect I get by just wetting my hair and not washing it at all is the same. So yes, I do shampoo my hair everyday as well.
