I how my hair up in a bun and adjust my shower head at neck level so my hair doesn’t get wet.
Also, have you tried dry shampoo? As Los have suggested it would be good on the days when your hair is super oily but you don’t want to wash your hair

I have thick curly hair and washing everyday would dry it out. I put mine up in a bun and just keep it out of the spray while I wash myself. I wear my hair up on non-wash days anyways, so it works for me.

I always had fine, oily hair, and I just washed it every day until I was in my 40s. Then I could do every other day. Now in my 50s, I can go 3 days, easily. A perk of getting older!

I usually wash my hair every 2-3 days and just throw it up in a bun while in the shower.
Dry shampoo is awesome to refresh your hair but be careful! You should NEVER use a curling iron or straightener after using dry shampoo. You can actually burn your hair off!

I generally wash my hair every day because i just have to 😂🤷🏼♀️ but if i do skip, which is 1-2 times a week when i wear a top knot, I’ll take a bath.

I shower twice a day and wash my hair 2 times a week. I just put it up on not washing days and don’t let it get wet.

I have dry skin and hair so I can get away with only washing my hair once a week if I’m not getting sweaty. I do like my showers though, so i put it into a pony tail. I think this was good training fornladh extensions, I’m already used to keeping my head out of the shower stream lol.
As PPs said though, it’s the stuff in products that can be bad for hair, so it’s okay if it just gets wet. Also, have you looked into cowashing? It’s also worth a try if you just can’t break the daily hair washing habit.

I wash my hair once a week, it’s thick and curly and just can’t cope getting washed more than that. I invested in a shower cap, they are a God send! When I go in the bath I don’t use it though as I tend to get too sweaty so I just pile my hair in a top knot or use a big butterfly clip if it’s straight.
I’ve always had this routine however my sister washed her hair everyday until mid 30s when she decided it was damaging her hair, she bought a shower cap, some dry shampoo and persevered through the initial few weeks.

I use a shower cap, looks ridiculous but my hair goes so frizzy from the steam so the cap also keeps that from happening.

I use a shower cap on the days I don’t wash my hair

I have lots of extremely fine hair. I found the #1 key to not having it feel greasy and oily is to use a high end / professional shampoo and conditioner, and only a light professional grade styling product (I use bumble hairdressers oil). You wouldn’t believe the difference if you’ve never tried it. I also use a clarifying shampoo every 2-3 weeks to strip out buildup from our softened, irony water and any hair products.
When im in the shower I just put my hair up in a high bun. I have long hair so it’s never an issue.

Because shampoo dries my hair out I normally just condition every few days. On the days that I don’t condition, I still wet my hair and let it air dry. Once and again I will use one of those “AsSeen on TV” terrycloth turbans, but I really feel cleaner if I let the water run through it even if I add nothing to it.

I wash mine every other day. Usually I’ll pile it up in a bun (my everyday hairstyle anyway) or with a clip to shower or take a bath.
One idea is the “no-poo” hair wash: a mix of baking soda and water for “shampoo,” then apple cider vinegar or honey & water rinse as “conditioner.” Supposedly it’s a lot better for your hair and scalp, because it doesn’t totally strip the oils out. I did it for a couple weeks while house-sitting and liked it, but went back to shampoo when I got home. I think having a good water-softener made a difference, because our hard water just left my hair feeling tangly. 😛 BUT I really liked how soft my hair was at the other place. 🙂

I used shower caps for years, but a while ago mine broke and I couldn’t find more in the shop. Now I’m used to just putting it in a high bun and not sticking my head directly under the water. Works fine for me! I also heard that if you’re trying to transition to no-washing (not sure if it’s the same for just less frequent washing…) you should wet your hair and give it a good massage to distribute the oils better.

I use a shower cap because my hair cannot take any humidity. I freshen with dry shampoo.
