This may seem like a silly question, but I have read so many conflicting things about how often you should wash your hair. I’m Asian, and my hair is REALLY thick and long. I wash it every other day; if I wash it every day, it gets really dry. I have African-American friends who wash their hair once a week, and other friends who wash their hair every morning.

I am Caucasian and I have long, straight hair. I have to wash it every day or it looks greasy. If I don’t wash it, I wear it up with a headband.

I usually wash mine every other day. Used to be every day but realized how dry it got! it feels so much better now the less I wash it. And I notice it doesnt’ get as greasy as fast anymore either so that is a plus too 🙂 It also depends what I do, like work out, etc

Just about everyday. I don’t feel clean if I shower and don’t wash it.

I have to wash it everyday because it’s greasy. Sometimes I wash it more than once per day.

I have curly/wavy hair. I wash mine every two days. Sometimes it’s every other day. I always use conditioner though to keep my hair in good condition.

I wash mine once, sometimes twice, per week. I have very thick, curly, coarse hair and it gets ridiculously dry if I wash it more.

I will wash every day. My hair is kinda oily but I scrub my scalp and condition my ends if it doesn’t need a complete wash or I am just wearing it up.

Also, yes depends on what I do. I worked in a bar and it smells like food and grease. Not cool when you are laying on your pillow at night. I found keeping it up helps:)

pre-pregnancy: every other day
Since I got pregnant I can only wash it twice a week. Once on Sunday and once on Wednesday. It gets too brittle / dry otherwise. Crazy!
ETA: I’m white as white can get.

I have fine, straight hair (caucasian) and I only wash it once a week. I used to work at a salon and I learned what to do to keep it lasting, but I admit that by the end of the week it is pulled up into a bun with either a pompadour or a headband. I have a really greasy scalp, and it is possible with a greasy scalp to make a hairstyle last 3-4 days with the right style (blowout) and product (powder or hairspray with alcohol). I’m very lazy. 😉
