I wash it every day. I have fine hair so if I skip washing it for a day it just kind of hangs there lifelessly. When it was longer I could get away with skipping a day every once in a while and do a pony tail but now that it’s pretty short, I think I’m a daily shampoo slave for life.

Everyday is a must! Any time I have tried to skip a day my hair is so greasy it looks wet in some places by afternoon! So so gross.

Ms Bunny, my hair is the same as yours–it can last about a day and a half before it starts looking really tragic.  I have fairly fine hair so it really does need to be washed pretty much every day.  Occasionally, I can get away with blowing it out on Day 1 and then putting it in a pony tail on Day 2.  I’d say I wash it 9 out of 10 days, although I shower everyday (after I workout).

I have this fine, thin hair that looks greasy the day after washing but I’ll try and conceal it by throwing it up in a pony, wearing a headband, some dry shampoo etc. or else I would be washing my hair daily and my hair would be non-existant (cause then I blowdry, and straighted after every shower!)

I have heard of the baby powder trick and I have to say I HATE it. I have quite dark hair so when I throw it on my roots my hair looks so ‘BLAH!’ it doesnt blend well in my hair which is why I have a dry shampoo which is a dark color to blend well in your hair. I also dont like the smell of baby powder….ew

Every 2-3 days. I have very dry, curly hair, so I can get away with not washing it for a few days.

Fun post!

I only wash mine 2-3 times a week but I condition every day. I’ve hugely thick naturally curly hair that dries out really easy – if I wash it more often it breaks like crazy.

I wash mine whenever I shower. In the winter, it’s usually every other day. But now that summer is here (and no air conditioning) it’s every day.

I wash my hair every other day but I do a deep condition once a week, and condition it everytime I wash. Not only do I have curly hair but I’ve colored it, so it really needs the moisture.

use baby powder on roots to cover a little greasiness to get another day out of the hairstyle. I can’t wash my hair too much as it dries my scalp out and my hair so i go as long as possible 4 days.

I have fine hair, but a LOT of it.

I wash my hair every 2-3 days, but mostly out of laziness!  My office is filled with middle-aged men, they don’t care how I look.  so neither do I!  I kind of wish I had an excuse to make myself look nicer, but oh well.  No shower = more time.

I’m sure my hair is thanking me for this, anyways 😉

Call me OCD but I definetly shower and wash my hair everyday.  Lot’s of times I shower twice a day (only wash my hair once) because I workout in the morning and I am a sweaty mess and then in the afternoon again after I have taken my babies (doggies) on a 5 mile trail run and having dust and dirt all over you isn’t particulary attractive or clean.  I don’t want to get into my bed being dirty, I would have to wash my sheets if that were the case.  Unfortunely I am a "sweater" if that is even a word and I have fine hair so I will have an oil slick on my head if I don’t wash.
