    I usually go a week between CO washes but I do water rinses when I shower. I'm not sure if those count.I think the longest is two weeks without washing and maybe 4-5 days without rinsing with water.

    A few days for me. Never longer than four days, that's for sure.

    Normally 7-10 days between washes depending on my work schedule and if I have the day to air dry. I think Iím going to have to start documenting it on my calendar because I actually forget and have to back track to figure out my last wash day. 😂😂

    14 days due to medical reasons, and so for a long time, I could only wash it once every fortnight. Got a *major* case of SD (seborrheic dermatitis) afterwards. That was no fun!

    Never again. 1 week is good enough!

    About a week. I've been stretching my washes, but honestly I hate how gross it feels when I get to day 5. I usually wash around 3 or 4. I just hate being greasy! It feels way nicer freshly washed. I could go longer but I'm no longer enjoying my hair by then.
    just growing along and seeing how far I go!
    originally made it to BSL, then cut to chin in june 2019 to remove damage. current length: APL

    As a child I've gone 2 weeks without washing.
    One time back in 2015 I hadn't washed my hair in 7 days.
    Now, I go no longer than 3 days.

    13 days and it was so difficult. And now, I wash it twice a week.

    A few weeks, close to a month I think. Bad, bad idea though... I really can't stretch washes for more than a week. By the 4th day the oil is starting to build up on my scalp and I'd deal with it then if it weren't such a tedious process.
