    Oh, interesting. My hair is fine and for years I didn't use conditioner at all because it's so easy for conditioner to just weigh it down. I only need conditioner now because I have damage on the length/ends.

I've just read a lot of cases where this turned out badly for people who thought it was the way to go.
    Oh, yeah, letting your scalp sit with grease and mank on it for as long as you can stand doesn't sound good. In my experience it's fine to leave it an extra day or so from the point of "yeah, looks like it could use a wash", but I think that's also because my hair is fine and low porosity so you just need to look at it funny for it to start getting greasy around the hairline and someone with coarser hair might find that by the time their hair looks greasy their scalp is getting itchy and needs washed.

    Ah, thanks, I also strive to leave it on overnight but that only works on the weekend. During the week I'm too lazy go get up before work for a hairwash, so an hour in the evening it is

    I have increased my wash to 3x a week and I may go to 4. I really think my hair hates my own oils.

    I sometimes am tempted to wash everyday. Just for comfort it gives me...
