Should I wash it everyday, or is that too much?

well friend i wash my hair after every alternate day as they say that too much of washing can spoil your hair so i dont wash my hair every day.We all wash our hair with shampoo and so the overuse of shampoo might spoil the hair lusture as well. have a nice day...

This is kind of what I was getting at. Honestly at this point in my life I think learning what the "right" amount of hair washing is too late. I am 24 and have been balding since 20. Slowly, but surely my hair is receding and thinning. I was wondering if the fact I've washed it everyday since I was like 11 had something to do with that. Hum Oh well, I'll be a sexy bald man! :P

I think you should wash it how ever often you want to. Of course if you feel you need to wash it everyday, buy a shampoo that's gentle enough to use everyday. I wash mind according to if it needs it or not. If I have worked outside a lot and sweat (I live in the south and it gets real hot here) I'll wash it everyday. I think the longest I'll go is maybe three days. I always have it up in a ponytail.

I was my hair when it needs to be washed or when it makes my head feel unwell, which is about twice to three times a week. When I go swimming a lot I do wash my hair after every swim so that would mean more washes that week. I have hair that almost touches my shoulders, until I have it cut next week, then it will be short. My husband washes his hair every day, but his hair is so short he doesn't even need to comb it! My daughter has short hair and she washes her's every day, but I think that is only because she has a shower every day and her hair always gets wet so she think s she may as well wash it while she is in the bath. My little girl has haie that touches her bottom, I wash her hair at least twice a week, my boys who have short hair and also don't need to comb it, depends how often I wash it, at least twice a week as there heads tend to get sweaty and while in the bath they get the bubbles in there hair. You have decide how often you want to wash your hair, how often you feel you need to wash your hair, and how much time you have to wash your hair and then make a rota up so you don't forget to wash it etc. I'm sure your hair is very nice.
