  • a few times a week. I have psoricos(spelling?) and gets bad if it's washed too often.

  • I wash mine every day. I have very curly hair and I have to use products in it to keep it from frizzing, so I like to wash it every day so it doesn't get to dirty or weighed down from it. However, I don't dye it, perm it, blow dry it, or use curling or straightening irons on it, and that cuts down on the damage.

    I'm not too worried about changing how often I wash it though, because over the years, I've gotten tons of comments from hair dressers about how healthy and how thick my hair is. (Well, it's really fine, but there's a lot of it, so it's thick in that way.)

  • I wash my hair every other day or every third day if I can possibly make it. My hair is so much healthier now that I do that instead of washing it everyday. I've had a lot of processed done to my hair though, so you have to treat fragile hair with care.

  • When it needs it... usually once a week?... my hair gets really dry and frizzy really easy even if I use the moisturizing shampoo AND conditioner so I just stopped washing it unless it needs to be. Seems to help, this way I only have horrible hair one day out of the week.

  • this isn't a new study... when you wash your hair, you are washing off its natural oils that protect it, and replacing it with a chemical based conditioner.
