  • I am the queen of the slicked back bun aka – I dont wash my hair enough. Ideally I will try to do it every 2nd to 3rd day but It doesnt always work out that way.

  • I often massage my hair and scalp just with conditioner or a mask as my hair is super dry already.

  • Apparently washing too often can actually make it more oily. I wash every two or three days.

  • A couple of times week but definitely more in summer. I think the theory is the more you wash it the more you strip it of natural oils

  • Once a week for me – any more often and it gets very greasy.

  • I was mine once per week as I have coloured hair and it makes it last longer. Overwashing will leave the scalp dry but it depends on your hair

  • I wash my hair when it dictates it. In other words if it is oily and looks drab I wash it. More so in the summer than the winter. Just look at your hair and you’ll know if it wants to be washed.

  • Interesting to read the different answers !

  • I wash my hair every 4 days

  • I wash my hair every 3 days. As my roots start to get oily and my ends go dry :)

  • I shower morning and night and my hair gets a clean then too. I’m a senior and its still going strong.

  • It’s actually best to wash less often as the natural oils in your hair are healthy for it and make for stronger hair. I wash no more often than once every two days.

  • Once maybe twice a week

  • Every second to third day, otherwise it gets very oily

  • Every second to third day. Any longer I find my scalp gets itchy
