How Often Do You Shampoo Your Hair?

Shampoo frequency has been a longstanding debate in the beauty world. Most people agree that you shouldn’t wash your hair every day because it can damage your locks.

But how often should you shampoo it, then?

I read a recent article on Maire Claire that says unnatural redheads (and this probably goes for all people who color their hair) should only wash their hair twice a week.

Then, there was that Daily Mail article I brought up in 2009 that said you should never wash your hair.

So, that got me wondering…

How often do you wash your hair?

I’m talking a full shampooing. Every day? A few times a week?

My answer: I usually wash it every other day. Very rarely, I’ll wait two days. I don’t go very long because my hair looks absolutely horrid if I don’t wash it. Horrid!

What’s your answer? Let us all know in the comments!

  1. I usually wash my hair every other day too. It looks so stringy and limp if I wait longer than that. I’ve started using dry shampoo, which adds a little volume, but that’s about it.

  2. I wash it every other day. I have to as I have oily hair and they get greasy and dirty pretty fast.

  3. I only wash my hair twice a week. Plus I don’t use normal shampoo and conditioner. I use baking soda and apple cider vinegar to clean my hair. I’ve been doing this for about 3 months and I’m really loving the results. My hair has tons of body without using any products. My colour is bright and shiny. I no longer need detangler and my hair dries in half the time. It’s a must try really.

  4. I also wash my hair every other day. When my hair was long, it was every 2 days. Longer than that and I’ll start to look like Robert Pattinson, ugh!

  5. I wash my hair every day. Probably not good to do it that much, but it’s just out of habit.
