How often do you wash your hair?

I am a SAHM so I wash it everyother day when I was working I would wash it everyday. I have heard that if you wash your hair too often you strip away the oils from your scalp which causes it to dry up.

While sitting and watching TV I like to massage my scalp get all the oils going and then I go and wash my hair because it does leave an oil look if you don't wash it out.

What kind of hair products do you ladies use?

  • Every other day usually. I do get it wet everyday though because in order to style it i have to start from scratch. I'm so jealous of those people who have better hair the second day.

  • I wash my hair twice a day. Only because I work at a hospital, and god knows what I pick up there. LOL I have naturally curly hair, I found what works best for curly hair (got the idea from cosmo) is while your in the shower. After you put your conditioner in, brush your hair then. Do not brush it again once your out of the shower. According to cosmo, it does something to the natural curl. Works pretty good for me! I also don't use anything but 24/7 creme on my hair. Sunsilk for curly hair products works wonders on my hair. I love there 24/7 creme. Another bit of info, from cosmo, you can buy cheap shampoo, but never scrimp on the conditioner. LOL

  • I have really curly dry hair. So i wash my hair once or twice a week. I buy the cheapest shampoo. I spend more on a good conditioner.

  • I use Neutrogena T gel and I usually wash everyday because if it dont, it itches. If I am not going anywhere, I don't wash it.

  • I use the cheapest shampoo and conditioner. I however was my hair 1 or 2 times a week only because my hair is so thick that I have to put it in a pony tail to dry because if I blowdry it then it gets all frizzy. And if I leave it down to dry it gets all frizzy. So I put it up in a pony tail to dry and it takes all day to dry.
