How often do you wash your hair?

I know this may be a weird question, but I only wash my hair every other day(I take baths on the days I don't wash my hair and shower on days I do), but all my friends and pretty much everyone I know washes theirs daily. My hair doesn't get greasy or anything, andI've heard that washing your hair every day dries it out and isn't healthy. Am I weird for only washing every other day??

  • My hair gets washed once a week with baking soda not shampoo and an apple cider vinegar rinse instead of conditioner. I shower every day and get it wet, but that is it. My hair is healthier now then it was before I started thsi (2 years ago). I used to wash every other day because I have dry hair. It takes a little while to get your body used to no shampoo, but it is worth it in my book.

  • I use shampoo every other day. My hair and scalp get dried out easily. But I use conditioner daily.

  • I shower every night at bedtime and shower when I get up in the morning. I always have. My hair is really curly and it gets oily so fast I can't go a day without washing it. I know some people that can go more than a day, and I wish I could...

  • I must wash my hair every day or it gets oily and stringy and gross and yuck yuck yuck!

    Everyone is different though. Consider yourself lucky if you don't have to do it every day, haha.

  • I wash it every other day. If I wash it everyday, it's dry and frizzy. If I wash it less, its oily looking.

  • It depends on the time of yr for me. During the winter, I do it about every 2nd day (like Monday, Thursday, Sunday). During the summer, I sometimes have to do it every day b/c of swimming, the chlorine smell gets to me and it does awful things to my hair.
