    Also every day. It is short, so gets messed up by sleeping, plus fine so looks dirty quickly.

    Haha no. I have really dry hair so it doesn't get greasy unless I leave it two weeks, which I had to do after surgery.
    I beg to differ....
    ah no lucky you.

    when my hair was quite long I'd wash it every other day
    now that it's short, I wash it maybe every 2 or 3 days
    but with a short back/sides and long on top style, if your hair is anything like mine, washing it will get all the volume out of it, and make it completely flat/lifeless
    so washing it makes it soft but that's no good for a style like this

    Once or twice a week, with dry shampoo top ups if it gets greasy I've noticed my hair is in much better condition since I quit washing hair daily, I use regis olive oil shampoo & conditioner.

    Hair care has actually become one of my favourite hobbies
    But I keep having setbacks so I'm switching from relaxing to texlaxing haha. Can't go natural for reasons I explained in that PM
    Why can't you go natural?

    Everyday. I have to, because my hair is greasy that oil could drip if I don't wash it after 24h.

    3-4 times per week because my hair gets oily, if I do it daily, scalp gets very itchy and cannot stand that!

    Just get decent shampoo. I would rather have more oily hair in the long-run knowing I can just wash the oil out than go around with sweat and dirt in my hair.
    I do have decent shampoo, it's because I know more about hair that I decided to not wash it every day. That shouldn't happen

    I've got the same cut but my hair type is already extremely thick so I have volume, I even get my hair thinned at the hairdressers cause it's so thick

    How are you all getting away with so little??? Mine has to be every other day but starts looking a bit grim a day after!!
    I have thick hair that's like very dark, it takes ages for me to not wash my hair before anyone notices

    The experts say wash hair every other day. there is no harm in washing hair every day. That's a myth some stylists use though research by scientists into the effects of it turn back nothing overly negative.

    I have extremely thick hair too - it's just very straight, so it is naturally very flat so if it's washed it just gets very uncooperative when I'm making it stay up and out of my face - it's unfortunate that a build up of hairspray and an absence of shampoo (/conditioner) makes it more cooperative because some might think this is dirty. either I have soft and shiny hair which just lies flat, or I have less clean hair which looks "cool". it's a harsh compromise lol
