    I did often go two or even three weeks between washes when I was on medication for my skin that also dried out my scalp, so my hair barely got greasy. It was pretty great even though it made my hair look bad.

    Under normal conditions though, probably a week.

    1 week is my maximum, during this quarantine... My oily scalp and hair can't take any longer lol

    Actually, my hair is greasy as hell after just 2 days... Imagine 1 week! I didn't wash it only because I was on quarantine and nobody could see me

    I don’t think I have ever had more than 4 days between washing. Even when we go camping. Even when I was working in an emergency camp doing hurricane relief. Even after a minor surgery.

    Maybe there was a time when I was much younger around 18 that I washed less when I was farm volunteering. But it was certainly not a week that went by. Maybe a few days.

    I've gone a couple weeks when really sick.

    2 weeks during my deepest depression. I had super-short hair though anyway...

    But I normally only wash every 5-6 days anyway so I suppose 2 weeks really isn't all that surprising!

    I've only gone about a week without a proper wash as a kid due to camping. I get a nasty scalp very quickly unless I at least CO. I S&C every day now though. I just needed to find truly gentle products so I could do that.

    The longest without any sort of wash is about a week. I usually co-wash every 2-3 days though, and shampoo.. basically never! Maybe once a month! My hair has improved so much since I stopped using shampoo!

    1 week. I tried to 'train' my scalp to produce less oil. I did this for a few years but it didn't work. I now wash daily/every other day and it's been in the best shape ever.
