  • I use diluted baking soda and apple cider vinegar solution in a spray bottle around once or twice a week unless I'm very physically active, in which case any day I sweat a lot, I'll wash my hair. The "no poo" method. Shampoo strips the natural oils from your hair, then your scalp compensates, creating extra oil. The result is that if you don't wash your hair with shampoo every day or every other day, your hair gets super oily. That's the reasoning behind the "no shampoo" method. And really. All those chemicals.

  • Every day to every other day, depending on what I'm doing and how gross I feel. I shampoo and use conditioner each time.

  • Funny thing is from the people I know they tend to overwash their hair. You can wash it with water preferably cold all you want and it will clean your hair a bit. Personally i do it like once a week with everything and the other times just cold water unless for some reason it became grimy. It also helps keep my hair colour long lasting, as if you think about it, it lasts more or less a set amount of washes.

    • why change the times you shower depending on where you are?

    • Because at home, I care about smelling nice when I go out.

      When I hang out (for multiple days) at someone else's house, I want to be clean before I get in their bed.

  • At least once a day

  • 3 x a week post workout, using a moisturizing shampoo.

    most people over do it. Then they complain they are greasy, because their scalp is producing oil like crazy trying to compensate for the overwashing, and then they go 'why do i have greasy scalp and dry ends?' yeah it's a mystery.

    • hmm, I had an issue with too much buildup (I think) for a little while, but I think it was from using thick creams on my face getting into my hair, not from washing too much.. it could be many things.

  • I've recently changed my routine because I'm trying to be nice to my hair. I used to wash it everyday religiously. Now I wash it 3 times a week with an organic shampoo and conditioner. I dry shampoo it once a week or so and I wear it pulled up in a messy bun about twice a week. I dry and straighten or curl it on days I shampoo.

  • I was going for once a week but thanks to updos I can get away with like a week and a half to two weeks and it's awesome XD

    When I do wash it, I use biolage 'hydrasource" shampoo and conditioner and then use Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum for frizz. I use batiste dry shampoo when my roots get greasy and it's by far my favorite dry shampoo.

    • hmm, I think I might try one of those dry shampoos

    • They really help give your hair texture for when you want to do an up do and extend your time between washes. You can get it on amazon for like 7 bucks.

  • Shampoo once a week, condition every other day with air drying it.

    • does conditioning so often without washing ever cause build up for you?

    • nope, it makes it better feeling for my hair, I shouldn't shampoo it so often cause of how thick and curly my hair naturally is.
      sometimes my hair will become very dry if I shampoo too much or not enough

  • I shampoo and condition every other day.

  • I wash mine everyday, using only shampoo.
    My hair is super fine so gets greasy, especially around my bangs, on a daily basis. Plus I go to the gym 3-4x/week so washing my hair after a good workout is a must.

    • I don't think thin/thickness affects greasiness of hair. it's more of an internal thing. some people just produce more oil than others.

    • Thinner hair definitely looks greasy faster. If your hair is naturally thick&glossy, it'll take a lot more natural oils to make it look equally greasy/flat as thin, fine hair. I'm not someone who produces a lot of oil.

  • Every other day for me. Gets greasy.

  • Its not the same every week. I'll wash it (shampoo, condition) on days I work. If I straighten it then I can usually get by with spraying it with dry shampoo the next morning and not washing.

  • I hate having greasy hair, I wash mine every other day. But washing hair every day isn't healthy for your scalp.

    Sometimes I try to wash it after 4 days, but I get so grossed out I wash it after 2 days :-(
