daily showers

I have a friend that was complaining about her head itching. I asked her If she washes her hair daily or every other, etc. She said it had been 5 days since she showered or washed her hair. I didn't know what to say. WTH does she expect. I just told her it would help if she would wash it every other day atleast. I rarely go a day without my shower, how can anyone go 5 days is beyond me.

  • Um some people have extremely dry hair and cannot wash their hair every day. People with course hair do not and it's not recommended for them to do so. That is why in the past little old ladies only went to the beauty shop once a week. Washing your hair daily is highly NOT recommended. Every other day is fine, but this is why people actually have so many hair issues right now.

  • Pew!!!! No wonder her head itched!!! That's not good! Should at least take one every other day. I like to take a shower everyday but sometimes with the kids I don' get a chance but always every other day!! Yuck... 5 days????

  • I shower everyday. I only wash my hair once/week. If I washed it would itch, strip it of its natural oil.

  • My shower is my little escape for the day. Always has been. Even if its just 5 minutes. She sounds like she is on overload, I feel really sorry for her. She needs to take care of herself too.

  • Haha I get to busy to shower when the kids are awake so you shower when their sleeping. I don't know how some people do it

  • That is a long time to go without a bath. Is there something wrong with her?  Is she not able to shower bc she does not have access one?
