    Probably no more than 7 days. If I go any longer I get such bad scalp eczema and dandruff from all the sweat and buildup

    I was NW/SO for around 8 or 9 months when I first joined. I just stopped putting in the effort to keep it looking okay and that was that.

    I've gone longer than a week due to being on camping trips. I actually just went a week without washing my hair but that was a mistake - my scalp wasn't too happy!

    I usually wash twice a week.

    Three days. I donít care to do that. 2 days is ok, for me. It depends on what you eat, whether you smoke, are you excessively oily.
    Your hair will trap the smells youíve been around. Smoking, restaurants, strong foods youíve eaten and it comes out of your pores. Dust will collect. Dandruff, if youíre prone to flaky skin.
    Some recommend not washing your hair every day. But, it youíre going on an interview, a first date, or out with a group, donít be that one who everyone else will be talking about, except you, wonít know.

    About 1 and a half months

    That is not the regime I would adhere to now though. I was living a rather nomadic life at that time.
    around 20+ years ago.

    Not more than a week, and that was not intentional. I usually wash every day and my hair becomes a stringy mess if not washed for 2 days.

    I've gone for 10 days probably would've gone longer if I hadn't been massaging my scalp with argan oil nightly.
