i wash my hair every third or forth day. when you wash your hair with shampoo it strips your hair of its natural oils and it then overcompensates for that loss and your sebaceous glands overproduce the oils making your hair appear very greasy/oily looking. when you shampoo your hair very rarely your sebaceous glands produce the proper amount your hair needs and it actually is self cleaning. when you strip your hair of the natural oils too often your hair may become dry and straw-like. showering and conditioning are all fine and dandy as a daily ritual, but shampooing should be limited for your hairs sake. for the first little while your hair may look greasy when you try to space out your shampooing but it will get better eventually and in the long run be better for your hair. in the meantime you can use a dry shampoo to adsorb access oil or even baby powder.
