Washing your hair?

Poll time, guys and dolls!

 

I am curious how often each of you wash your hair.

 

Also... do you prefer washing it in the am before work, or in the pm before bed?  I am NOT a morning person, so I definitely am an evening hair washer, and do so every 2-3 days, depending on certain factors.

 

Ok, I want your feedback as well... and, GO!!!

Re: Washing your hair?

I'm an every morning shampooer. I have fine, thin hair that gets greasy by about 6 pm, so if I want to go out and have my hair look nice, I'll sometimes wash it twice in one day. Dry shampoos haven't worked for me yet, but I'm constantly trying new ones in the hopes that I can skip at least one day here and there. 

Re: Washing your hair?

I used to wash my hair everyday because it would get super oily. I realized that the reason is because i would wash it so often And it would strip down all my natural oils so by the next day it was overproducing to keep up. i read this info on several sites online. So i started washing my hair 2-3 a week. And my hair is not as oily as i once thought it was. Smiley Happy

Re: Washing your hair?

How did that transition go? I've tried reducing the amount I shampoo, but it just gets too gross that I can't even hide it by wearing it up. 

Re: Washing your hair?

I couldn't go more than 24hrs without washing because it looked gross. So lets say i wash my hair right now...and id wait til tomorrow night to wash it...it was already super oily. Gross! And I back in late October I had a lot of free time on my hands (i was on medical leave for 6 weeks) so I got so MUCH more into learning how to take care of my skin, do my make up, hair...etc. and I learned to not wash my hair so often and another factor was that I was so high on drugs (prescription ones Smiley Wink ) and had my jaw wired shut for 10 days that I was in no mood to do anything to myself....that i didn't wash my hair daily. which I'm really glad i had this transition while i was at home where no one saw me Smiley Wink 

 

but sometimes If i try and go more than 3-4 days without washing its very noticeable. As you said I cant even hide it by wearing it up. Smiley Sad it hadnt rained where I live for months until a few weeks ago...and Ive been working so much overtime that I didnt realize that i hadnt washed my hair In who knows how long. I would get home and was too tired to even eat dinner...and in the morning i wake up realized i forgot to even take a body shower so i would jump in the shower really quick. Anyway, well one day it was raining pretty hard and me, i never have an umbrella handy...so i walked to my car in the rain... And my hair obviously got wet...this might sound gross but i got a whiff of my hair and told myself "ewww i smell like wet dog" so i immediately got home and washed my hair. 

Re: Washing your hair?

I rise my hair every night because I work out every day and want to get the salt and sweat out. I use shampoo every other day though

Re: Washing your hair?

Wash your hair as though shampoo?  If that is the case, I can go a week without washing my hair and no, my hair doesn't get oily at all.

Re: Washing your hair?

I used to shampoo every day, however..I have very thick hair. It's involved to wash and dry, it takes way to much time.  It took a while to transition, but now I only wash only every 7-10 days. I go now and have kit washed and blown out, that ways I don't have to mess with it.

Re: Washing your hair?

I work at a restaurant, so I DO have to wash /shampoo it every day, except Saturday and Wednesday, the days I don't work. If I don't, my hair smells like chicken and garlic Smiley Happy Gross!

Re: Washing your hair?

When I was younger and danced, the hall we would practice in was right next to the kitchen old women made perogies in. Their perogie making night was the same night we had dance class. I could never fully get the smell of onions and garlic out of my hair. Smiley Tongue 

Re: Washing your hair?

Every night.... I have ridiculous allergies and found that 1) I sleep better having washed out pollens and such 2) my skin is better since it's not being exposed to my hair products 3) I am SO not a morning person. I despise the alarm so this saves me time in the morning.  I have long, really curly hair and I use heavy hair products. Also, I wash with Wen products so the nightly washing isn't harsh on my hair.  Lastly, I use a silk pillowcase - good for the hair and skin. 

 

Re: Washing your hair?

I co-wash my hair ever 4 days-ish but i usually listen to my hair and how it feels
i co-wash my hair in the mornings because i have VERY curly hair so i need to air dry it and if i were to wash it at night the curls would look SOOOO poo haha

Re: Washing your hair?

I wash every day in the A.M. cause my hair gets nasty quick lol

Re: Washing your hair?

I try to wash it every 2-3 days. Most of the time I only last 2, but I like to try to make it to 3 days.

 

I like washing it at night (usually after dinner) and then I let it air dry before I go to bed. I hate blow drying my hair- 1) it is a lot of heat and 2) I am pretty lazy! Lol...

Re: Washing your hair?

2x a week max! Usually Tuesdays & Fridays. Friday for the weekend, Tuesday to help get me through the week. It does change up a lot, depending on what's going on- if I want to curl my hair on Saturday, then I'll wash it Thursday. If I styled it a lot over the weekend, I'll wash it Sunday night. 

I use dry shampoo during the week to help keep the grease down. 

I only use sulfate-free shampoo, and a purple one once a week to keep my blonde hair looking nice. I find sulfate free shampoos don't do the best job at getting rid of build up, so I do an apple cider vinegar rinse every other week. If my hair's really dry, then I rub some coconut oil into it a few hours before I wash it, and then use apple cider vinegar to help get it out. 

I'm also not a morning person, so I usually wash my hair at night & let it air dry. I sleep with it in a bun or braid, so it doesn't tangle and rip. I hate blow drying, but find a hot air brush helps smooth it out if I need it. Normally I embrace the waves I get from the bun, or I curl it. 

Re: Washing your hair?

We have the same wash schedule, hair color, hair texture, and night time bun/braid routine! Smiley Happy

 

I desperately tired to get the baking soda and apple cider vinegar thing to work for me, but neither did anything for my hair (other than make it limp and smell too strong), but it works wonders on my husband's coarse hair!

Re: Washing your hair?

@Killah, I think I do ACV differently then most, but since you're a rebel you might like my method... I wet my hair, and then squeeze some AVC in my hair (I keep a squeeze bottle of it in the shower) and massage it in, let it sit for a few minutes, rinse, then shampoo. I know most people do it after shampooing, but if I do that, then it dries my hair out. I also think getting the right combo of ACV/water is important too. Some people can only handle 1 part ACV to 10 parts water. I do either 1/2 & 1/2 or 2/3 ACV to 1/3 water. 

Re: Washing your hair?

Ha! I do the same! Awesome. I only wash my hair max 2x a week, and use dry shampoo too. Though my days are flexible depending on my plans, I usually wash my hair Sun/Thurs.

 

And I wash my hair in the evening and braid or bun it, then let it go wavy the next day.

 

I also rinse with apple cider vinegar and use coconut oil once a month. 

Re: Washing your hair?

I wash my hair every 2-3 days in the morning! But I only use shampoo once a week. Otherwise I just use conditioner. I've also taken to mixing some lemon juice with melted coconut oil and rubbing that into my scalp and leaving it for about an hour or two on weekends. 
I have a dry flaky scalp and am currently trying EVERYTHING to get rid of it Smiley Sad

Re: Washing your hair?

I have fine, short hair. I wash it every day, and use conditioner once a week. About every other day I will use a leave-in spray like Infusium. 

Re: Washing your hair?

My hair is very long and thick. I strongly prefer to wash it every day, because I don't like having all the pollution all over my face and pillow at night. However, being so long it dries out like crazy if I do. (Even though I rarely use heat.) lately I'm trying to just wear it up as much as possible after the first day so I can wash it every 2-3 days instead, but if I've been around smoke or anything then I'll still wash it!

Re: Washing your hair?

I generally wash my hair ( it is down past the back pockets of my jeans...super long some would say..lol ) every Sunday,Weds.,and Friday. The other days I always use a dry shampoo to keep it looking nice and smelling great. The reason being is that I do not have oily hair, my hair is on the dry side and I always treat the roots with Dry Bar daily, on days I wash/condition and on days I dry shampoo.

I used to wash it daily, but it took almost 2 hours to wash and condition , then another hour to dry using a diffuser ( which I hate doing because I prefer to dry it naturally.

 

Just try some different techniques and see wich one works best for you, t takes awhile but ie really worth it.

Re: Washing your hair?

My hair is very curly.  Some may think it's gross, but my hair has changed for the better since I started washing it only once a week.  I really don't need more than that because my hair is very dry and doesn't get oily very easily.  I prefer to wash it on the weekend during the day when it has time to air dry completely.  Otherwise, I wash it at night - I'm not a morning shower-er either.  

 

I clip it up at night to make sure I don't flatten my curls an to keep it off my face - it's quite long.  Oh, and I only comb through it when it is wet. I use a wide-toothed comb and only do it while the conditioner is in. Good luck trying to brush this hair without ending up with a frizz puff!  

 

I don't straighten my hair often, but when I do, I will use dry shampoo to maximize the blow out for a few days if I start to feel greasy Smiley Happy

Re: Washing your hair?

I was an every other day girl, washing in the mornings, using heat to style.

I've had a new routine for a couple of weeks now and I really like it. I use WEN and have been for a few years...

I'm washing Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings. I air dry for a while with a few velco rollers in problem areas. Then I twist and put up in 2 or 3 loose buns. And sleep on it.  I am really enjoying the process. 

Re: Washing your hair?

Same as Carrieloulou, usually Sun, Tues, Thurs

Re: Washing your hair?

I wash my hair every day in the morning and usually at night too.  I use Wen cleansing conditioner so it doesn't strip my hair. So...most days is twice a day, but ALWAYS  in the morning!
