    When I was twelve I only washed my hair once a month. It was bad 😅

    I think the longest was 3.5 days. My scalp gets really unhappy if i go more than 2 days, so i wash every other day.

    My most recent record has been 9 days. I usually wash about twice a week.

    Some years ago I took a medication that made my body not produce oil, so I could go long without washing my hair, but I washed it like once a week just because my ends were crying for moist But normally I could go a couple days without washing if I'm not going anywhere since I wash daily.

    4 days if I remember it correctly. Wish I could go longer but the itch is the worst.

    9-10 days is my maximum. I was originally aiming for 14 days to recover from washing too much but the itching got too real. Now I go for CO once a week and my scalp has gotten used to it.

    I've never counted but definitely close to a month on a few occasions, most during camping. My hair starts getting pretty greasy and uncomfortable around the 2 week mark though.
    Usually wash it every 4-7 days.

    I got very depressed after my daughter was born and quit washing my hair for maybe a few weeks. I have a picture someone took of me from behind and my hair appears to be black with gold streaks. Apparently that’s what brown hair dipped in grease looks like!

    Most of the time though, I use shampoo every three days and the rest of the time just rinse and condition.
