    Default How often do you wash?

    I'm still learning about how to care for long hair. And I have a question: When some of you say that you "wash" your hair once or twice a week, does this mean that you use shampoo once or twice a week? Or does it mean that you CO wash once or twice a week?

    I wash (with shampoo and conditioner) every 3-4 days. Every 4 days more often then every 3, so 1 or 2 times a week.

    You are going to get a lot of different responses from people given that everyone has a different method of washing.
    I wash twice a week. What I use to wash depends on my mood for the day. Among the things I use are: Zizyphus, Soapbars, Shea moisture shampoo and bentonite clay.
    How often you wash it'll depend on you. If your hair feels clean for a week I don't see a reason to wash more often than that.

    When someone says they wash their hair however many times a week it means whatever method they chose to clean their hair. Shampoo is not necessary to get hair clean. For some, washing could even mean just using water.

    I wash my hair whenever I feel the need to, which was once or twice a week but now that it's getting hot again it's sometimes 3 times a week. I usually use diluted shampoo. Right now I'm experimenting with full strength Toadstool shampoo. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.

    I clean my hair every other day. That might mean CO, or it might (rarely) mean traditional shampoo and conditioner (although I never shampoo my scalp anymore). I usually call it CO washing.

    I wash every other day, I first put conditioner on my length, then wash my scalp with shampoo and rinse all out together.

    I wash twice a week with shampoo and conditioner, and don't wet my hair at all on the other days. However, I'm trying to stretch to once a week.

    I co-wash every day. Pretty much any time I'm in the shower- which is usually twice a day. Shampoo- not too often unless I'm about to color it. If I want to clean my hair, I rinse with green tea. If I really absolutely need to shampoo, I dilute it with water first.

    It depends. If I wear my hair curly and natural then I can last 3 - 4 days. But if I do bun waves/bun on top of my head, my hair in one spot in the back gets oily quicker and I have to wash every other day or every two days.
