Do you wash your hair every day?

I keep reading things in magazines about how people don't and it makes me wonder if I'm the odd one out.... I can't NOT wash my hair. It just feels odd to me.... So any one not a daily hair washer and why not?

I used to wash my hair daily until my stylist told me it's bad for my hair. I have long hair that tends to dry out and frizz. If I use styling products on my hair, I will wash my hair daily. It feels dirty if I don't.

I don't think you are odd at all, because I am exactly the same way! It just feels so yuck to me if I don't wash my hair daily!

I think depending on your hair type makes a big difference on your washing routine. Me personally I wash my hair every 2 or 3 days, but I have extremely curly hair and the first day I wash it I can't do nothing with it, it's just big poof ball I need some of the natural oils to calm it down a bit.

I have to wash my hair everyday. If I don't my hair itches and is very oily. I hate that I have to, but I can't stand the way my hair feels if I don't.

I wash mine every second day. If I leave my hair unwashed for more than two days it gets oily and itchy. It's gross. However I don't wash it everyday simply because I can't be bothered. I can't stand wet hair so I have to spend 5-10 minutes blow drying it after every wash. If I had a short hair style I probably would give it a quick wash every day.

I have chemically treated hair and my hair is a bit on the dry side right now so I shampoo my hair twice a week.. I use a good conditioner in between. Anyways, my hair rarely is exposed to dirt since I stay in an airconditioned room the whole afternoon..If you really can't handle not washing your hair, you may want to use a gentle shampoo suited for everyday use..

hair - long hair
I have long hair and it is impossible to wash and style it everyday. I wash my hair 2-3 times a week during the winter and every other day during the summer.

Have you ever use white hair powder? I have one by Bumble and Bumble.

it makes your hair look better between shampoo. I use it when I am sick and I don't want to wet my hair. I call it dry shampoo. It is not cheap, but does the trick. http://store.bluegiraffespa.com/-strse-347/bumble-and-bumble-hair/Detail.bok

I have been washing my hair every day for ever. Then I got too ill to do so. Now I wash it every other day mostly - and would very much like to be able to every day. Most people I know do

I have to wash my hair everyday even though I have dry hair! I just need to feel the freshness on my head everyday. I can't stand not washing my hair at all, I would feel so sleepy and not awake and not like myself. Someone doesn't wash their hair everyday because it would dry out the hair. It's actually recommended to wash hair like every other day.

I don't shampoo my hair everyday, but since my hair sometimes gets greasy, I shampoo it once in every 2 days.

In my case, I wash my hair everyday with shampoo. I can't go out to work without washing my hair daily. I'd feel sticky if I cant wash my hair. I put hair conditioner after shampooing then on weekends, I'd hair spa for 15 minutes.

I usually shampoo and condition my hair every other day, sometimes everyday. If I wash it everyday for a long period of time, my hair starts to feel limp. :/

i don't really wash my hair everyday.. i do wash my hair every time i go out but when i just stay at home for that day, i don't.. if your hair is oily, washing it everyday is a must i think, but when it's dry, not washing for a day would be fine too.. my hair is dry so it doesn't turn into oil slick after a day of not shampooing but when like, my sister smokes and the smell of the smoke lingers on my hair, i wash it right away..

I cannot wash my hair every day, it goes dry and horrible, I have to do it every couple of days to allow my natural oils to condition the hair, and then use plenty of conditioner.

In our community (Priestly community), we take headbath everyday, many in cold and I take lukewarm water. This is a practice for centuries and because of daily headbath, I feel I do not get common ailments like cold, cough, headaches etc. Probably also because I drink 3 litres of water everyday. The headbath prevents any type of dandruffs. In fact a spoon of oil is massaged and that acts as nourishment to hair roots and I greyed only after I reached 55. But still I do not dye my hair and hardly noticeable grey hair remains, rest black.

I wash my hair about once every other day. If I wash it everyday I find it gets too dry and splits alot. Also we have a dug well so I try to not waste water unnecessarily.

I always make it a point to wash my hair everyday especially now that it's summer here. It's so hot outside that hair sticks in your neck and nape. Apart from that, imaging all the dirt that your hair will catch if your commuting.

I do wash my hair everyday. I think it is but normal to do so in our country. And I think we are expected to take a bath everyday because this is a tropical country and it really get's hot at noon time. I also shampoo my hair everyday. I don't feel good when I don't shampoo it. It feels less clean.
