    Right now I wash every other day. I'm still trying to figure out what works best for me and my hair, though! For most of my life I was a daily washer with sulfate shampoo and very cone-y conditioner. I still miss that freshly washed feeling every morning! I tend to have more luck with daily co-washing between shampoos during the summer, and I speculate that's what will happen in the coming months.

    right now i'm attempting to stretch washes. i used to be a daily s/c person, but i switched to co washing to encourage my new found wavies right now i'm washing every 3 days, but my scalp still gets super oily in between. i just hide it in ponytails/braids and using a wide headband on the day before washing. i've been doing a water rinse on day 2 then conditioning the length since it's really dry.

    Over the past year I've been able to "train" my scalp to accept shampooing once a week without my hair looking greasy in between washings. Every so often, like if I've been around our fire pit and get smokey smelling or if I've gotten really nasty and sweaty, I may wash between my regular once a week routine, but for the most part my hair does best with minimal treatment. Once a week clarify and condition, dry in a Dutch braid, use the Tangle Teezer on it exclusively all week. I'm thinking about doing coconut oil on the ends every so often to help them and for shine.

    Works like a charm for me.

    Since I can now put my hair up I have managed to stretch washes from every day to every 4 days and it feels great! I still wash my bangs every day but I don't count that. After wash I wear my hair down for two days and then up for two days (or just up if I use too much coconut oil after wash ).

    Between 3 and 4 days. My hair feels the best after the wash if I wait for 4 days to wash. I try to wash Sundays and Wednesdays if I can.

    once a week. it took me a few month for my scalp to be able to handle it. i was used to every other day or few days. Now my hair is used to it and I can get about 4 days in before I need dry shampoo. not touching it and no products will help to keep it cleaner.

    I wash my hair 2 or 3 times a week, but only shampoo my scalp - nothing on my hair below the shoulder. I also use a specific reconstructor conditioner instead of regular conditioner - this combination has made a huge difference in my hair and keeps it soft instead of drying out.

    Every 5 days, sometimes 6. If I wash my hair more often, my scalp gets very dry, and if I don't wash it for more than a week, then my scalp gets flaky.

    2 or 3 times a week for me.

    Sunday is my day for a conditioning treatment of some sort, if I feel like it/have the time. Then wash (egg wash) in the evening. Then I see how far I can go into the week without washing, I usually make it to Tuesday or Wednesday night before it's too greasy and it needs to be washed. If I'm doing something on the weekend I may wash again on Friday.

    On the last day it looks pretty greasy...I'm hoping it will properly adjust to this twice a week washing sooner or later (that is, without the awfully greasy last day).
