    I wash mine after I work out, so usually 4x a week.

    I normally wash mine somewhere between 2-4 times a week. I normally wash every other day, but sometimes I go 3 days if I don’t have anywhere to go, and sometimes I have to wash everyday (heavy cardio days or leg day when I sweat a lot more). I also telecommute for my job, so I don’t really have to worry about seeing people most days, so that helps.

    I’ve tried to get into a routine to where I can plan my wash days accordingly. IE – if I know which day I’m going to do leg day, I will purposely not wash it the day before since I know I’ll be washing it after. Or I try to plan to wash my hair on a Friday afternoon so I can get by without washing it until Sunday afternoon/evening. (this also makes styling it on the weekends a breeze).

    I also had to try several kinds of dry shampoo before I found one that worked well for me. My favorites are Not Your Mothers or Psssst. When I had blonde hair (never again!), I used baby powder instead of dry shampoo. It works so much better for my hair, but makes dark hair look weird.

    Everyday. My hair gets way too wild at night so I need to wash it every morning before I can do anything with it. I know you shouldn’t but my hair is in mega good condition and I am always getting complimented on it so figured it can’t be doing that much harm.

    I wash my hair once a week but it’s definitely taken some training to get to this point. Just start stretching out washing it, first go two full days, then three, etc. It’s so nice because I basically only style my hair once a week since my curls will last until I wash it the next wash (usually). Very occasionally if I’m sweating a lot or have a function or something I’ll wash it more often but it’s pretty rare. I also detest dry shampoo and will only use it if I have to. I have blonde hair so I substituted cornstarch on a fluffy makeup brush which worked pretty well (but still freaked me out when I ran my fingers through my hair). One thing that works really well to redistribute the oil (that I use instead of dry shampoo if necessary) is using a natural bristle brush and brushing the oil from your roots through the length. I do this especially around my face and part and it’s definitely helped get me an extra day or so.

    MrsSapphire : I don’t always wash it twice a day, I usually wash it in the mornings. But sometimes I might go somewhere or do something during the day that makes my hair dusty/sweaty/smelly… then I’d wash it before bed again

    mandipandi :  This! 

    OP, it takes some time to train your hair (I was a daily, if not twice daily hair washer), but it’s so so worth it.  I now wash it once or twice a week depending on how it’s looking.  My hair looked gross even with dry shampoo the first week or two, after that it got a LOT healthier.  I went from daily to every other day and after it adjusted, moved to ever 3 days.  I workout (running, lifting, cycle – I get VERY sweaty, including my hair!) 5-6 days a week and still am able to keep my hair fresh for 4+ days.  My hair now will get a bit oily at the roots (easily fixed by dry shampoo) and dry midlength to ends (easily fixed with argon oil).  I hate washing and styling my hair and can’t imagine going back to doing it every day!
