how often do you shampoo your hair?

i used to do this everyday, but my stylist discouraged me from doing so as it tends to make the hair dry. he suggested that i do this just every other day, but recommended the daily conditioning of the hair. what's your opinion?

I used shampoo everyday. Sometimes, I shampooed my hair 3x in a day when i take a bath. I know that it is not good for the hair but, i feel awkward of not using one during bath time. But I do condition my hair once a week --- hot oil treatment all by myself.

I was mine every other day and use a light conditioner. I don't use any styling products so I don't find my hair needs to be washed very day.

Actually it's not, I don't have to use alot of gel or hairspray in my hair so it stays clean. I take good care of my hair so it's healthy, if I wash it to much it will fall out.

My hair tends to be quite dry so it's rare for me to wash every day. Usually every other day, and sometimes even every third day. I believe in regular conditioning but don't typically condition if I haven't washed, except for the occasional use of leave in conditioner.

oh, leave-on conditioner? heard that's not good for the scalp, though. but thanks for responding. your opinion mattered.

I am not using shampoo in recent times. i am using vedic and natural powders for my hair.. it seems it is working, it stopped my hair from falling.. Also coming to point, dont use it daily, use in a weekyl once basis.

With a good shampoo I guess that would work I seem to be a bit picky when it come to my hair.

i don't comb my hair often enough. I wash my hair about 1 time a month. Sometime I will wash it 2 times. I comb my hair about 1 time a month. I just keep it in a ponytail.. Sometimes I will brush it,not very often. My friends and family always laugh at me.

oh, well, hehe. even if you don't wash your hair everyday, you must at least comb it, to free the tangles. i think once a month is too long --- even in the freezing temperature.

I tend to wash my hair once a week. It tends to get to dried out if washed daily. In the summer I might wash it three times a week because of the heat. Also, I keep my hair very short. God Bless
