I have a few guy friends who have hair around shoulder length or longer, and all but one of them don't wash their hair often and let it get horribly greasy. One of them tells me that it feels weird when his hair is clean. I don't know what the reason for the others are, but they often let their hair get to the point that it looks wet all over before finally washing it.
Another thing I've noticed is that all of these guys have beautiful, healthy hair with absolutely no split ends (aside from the one who does wash his hair more frequently and has very curly hair). Their hair is nicer and prettier than most girls', and definitely much healthier than mine. All they do to it is comb it out too, and most of them do not get frequent trims or haircuts. Why is this? I would absolutely love for my hair to be as healthy and nice as theirs, but am not willing to let it get that greasy, lol.

The thing is, our hair actually suffers if you clean/wash it too often. Hot water can dry it out, much like with our skin. It is obviously recommended to wash it before it gets greasy, but also to not wash it too often. Split ends are often caused by that exact thing; hot water, or in some cases, weather. It depends on the type of hair as well.2
