How often do you wash your hair? - September 16th 2014, 05:43 PM

I wash mine practically every-day. If I don't it'll just look like a greasy mess. A lot of people keep telling me that me washing it all the time is contributing to the oiliness. I just seriously can't stick my hair feeling greasy >.> It makes me feel so gross.

Re: How often do you wash your hair? - September 16th 2014, 06:04 PM

Uhhh... it varies from once a week to every second day. Depends on how I live my days. Lately, every 4th to every 5th day. Sometimes my hair does not get greasy at all until the 6th day either. But if I use hair conditioner on all of my hair, I'm practically doomed to washing it every day. So I don't do that anymore, I apply it only on half. My hair is actually easy to grease type which means I can't use any kind of shampoo - a very few.

I can speak for some of the women and girls I know too. What you say is true. Some would wash every second day while their hair would get greasy 24 hours after they've washed it. So yeah. I've been there too plenty of times. There are many factors involved in this; it may be the hair products you use as well.

Re: How often do you wash your hair? - September 16th 2014, 07:42 PM

At the moment I wash it every other day because I don't go out much so it doesn't matter if it gets greasy. I was hoping to try and reduce the grease by washing it less but it's not making any difference and it's been a couple of months now.
Once I start working next month I'll need to wash it every day. There are only a few shampoos I can use as well. Annoyingly the best one for my hair was a freebie at a hotel in Blackpool so I can only use it a few days a year because I can't find any of it online.
I find that TRESemme Colour Protect is good with my hair though so for the time being I'm using that.

I left my hair two days without washing this week and it got so horrible that when I got up in the morning, it stayed in place from being all over the pillow. It actually stuck up all over my head.

Usually every other day or every two days. I have dry hair so it doesn't get oily that fast.

I wash mine a couple of times a week normally. My hair is dry, so not washing it too often helps out a lot.

I try really hard not to wash it every day, and to keep it at every second day. I could never go longer than that. But usually by the end of the second day it's a greasy mess, and occasionally I slip back into the bad habit of washing it every day..

My hair gets super oily, so I wash it every day. Unless I don't have to go out, in which case I sometimes go a day or two without washing it. But skipping more than one day, makes my hair feel SOOOOOOO nasty.

Every other day. Every two to three if it's the weekend and I'm not going anywhere, but I start to feel gross.

Every other day or every two days. It isn't good for your hair to wash it every day.

Every other day, but sometimes I skip a couple of days. My hair doesn't get very oily so I can get away with it.

Whenever I remember, which is usually every other day or every few days. I'm not very strict with it.

I wash my hair once a week since its long. I used to wash it couple of times a week but that just made my hair really static and dry so once a week is good for me.

Every other day. I don't mind missing a day here and there, especially if I'm not going out. But the greasiness does make me feel worse

Well I usually wash my hair every 2 to 3 days. Whenever I think it'd get greasy the next day, because of school.
