How often to you wash your hair?

Even though I shower each day, I try not to wash my hair everyday. I have color treated hair and I want to make my hair color last. Is this gross or just something I need to do to not ruin my hair color. I use good shampoo's that are meant for colored hair.

  • Im 44 with colored hair. I wash mine every other day to prevent the wash out of color and to keep my hair and scalp from drying out. If my hair is dirty or I was outside mowing the lawn in the 113 degree weather we've been having, I will wash it everyday.

  • yea, I only wash about 3-4 times a week. Some people need to wash everyday because of the natural oils in their hair but I dont think its gross, hey I do it too!

  • I wish I could wash my hair every other day. I just don't feel clean if I don't wash my hair. Most people I know wash their hair every other day.
    This is not gross at all! Not only will your color last longer but your hair will be healthier.

  • I wash mine every day, it get's really heavy if I don't....color treated, natural curl that is blown out every morning. I have to use anti frizz products, so it weighs it done some.
