    Every day. If I don’t wash it it’s noticeably greasy. I have tried different dry shampoos but nothing has worked.

    What do you mean exactly? I get my hair wet and use conditioner almost every day, but my hair is so dry/coarse I only use shampoo every few weeks.

    I wash my hair every.single.day….on Fridays, I normally wash 2x. I have long, thick, straight hair that tends to get oily even though it’s super thick. I absolutely cannot stand the smell of hair that’s not freshly washed…I also am a daily morning washer-slept on hair is not ok for me. I know I’m in the minority among most people because it seems like most wash every few days, but I really find that pretty gross.

    Every day, because I use a lot of product and it’s short so I have pretty wicked bedhead.

    every other day. It used to get greasy if I didn’t wash it everyday, but I had heard that washing everyday is not good for your hair. I spent a summer forcing every other day, regardless of if it looked greasy or not, and my hair is now perfectly fine for 2 or 3 days- it does not look greasy at all. Weird, but it definitely worked.

    I also must add that I stopped dying my hair completely and only blow dry/straighten for a formal event, which is rare.

    My hair is so shiny (not greasy) and awesome now. Hard to believe I ever treated it so badly!

    Every 2-3 days, depending if I have to go out or work. I try not to wash often. I try up to 4 days but then dandruff shows up.

    I use a dry shampoo in between if it’s noticeably greasy. Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Powder, which is almost like a fancy baby powder.

    3 times a week, its extremely damaging to wash your hair every day, especially when you have dry hair which I have

    Depends on the season. In winter, I wash it every second day; the cold freezing air makes my hair super dry and not oily even after a few days. But in summer I feel gross if I don’t wash my hair every day, even if it doesn’t look greasy.

    It really depends on your hair, though. I used to never be able to go more than one day without my hair getting greasy, but I gradually decreased since daily washing was damaging my hair.
