Every second day or so. I dye my hair, and the colours don't stay in for long if i was it everyday. (The dye is permanent, but my hair is too ruined from previous dyes)

I wash mine every two/three days! Apparently, its bad for you if you wash it like, all the time!

i have to wash it everyday- i have an oily scalp and skin and live in texas where 6/7 days a week it its super hot! even in the winter i sweat profusely. my hairlength also plays a role since it is long enough to be in a ponytail. maybe the better question should be if people shampoo their hair more than once when they do wash it, i know i have to!

I have very long hair down to my butt and I hate to wash it (it takes so long), that's why I only wash it twice a week (it's better for the hair too).

I have long, thick, curly hair so I can get away with washing it every 2-4 days. If I wash it every day it gets way too dry and then gets frizzy. Every time I shower I wet my hair really good and apply conditioner to the ends only, they need it.

I know it is bad to wash your hair everyday, but I live in Arizona where sweating is the name of the game. And after cycling class - I hate to have sweaty smelly hair. So maybe every two days or so. I am bad :(

I wash it every couple of days but rinse the hair around my face everytime I wash my face. Otherwise all my facial products make it greasy. I'm currently growing it out and I quit coloring it as well. Anyone else trying this?

Since my hair is thick and straight I wash it every 5 or 6 days. I'm very lucky that I don't have problems with greasy hair so I prefer not to wash it and blow dry it too often. This system works out for me great and I'm managing to keep my hair healthy.

About twice a week.

Highlights + dry hair + long + thick + doesn't show oil = you really don't want to know how long I've gone upon occasion

My hair is thin and fine and on the oily side. So i pretty much have to wash it everyday if i want it to look good. If i'm in a lazy mood the most i can skip is a day.

I have really thick African Amer. hair so I got to the hair dresser every other week to get my hair washed.

I try for every other day. My hair just looks and feels better, and is easier to manage, on the day after a wash.

every few days. i can't do it everyday, although i am tempted, cause i love washing my hair, but then it gets too dry.

Before I joined the military, I'd wash it every other day. Now that I'm in, our hair must be super-slick, strict, and ready for action. The best way to achieve this is wet hair.

I also have fine, thin hair, and so I have to wash it everyday or it becomes totally flat and is a greasy nightmare.

99% of the time I wash it once a day, but occasionally I won't feel like it! But usually I can't stand the way it feels if I don't wash it!

Mine is really fine, so I have to wash it every day. If I don't, it's flat, lifeless, and greasy - not a good combination :p

that's awesome party sugar i wish i could get a routine down like that. mine is thin, pin straight and gets oily looking if i skip a day. i do try to skip a day once a week for my color as well since it is dyed very dark brown with dark purply red highlights.

I have semi-dry scalp so the doctor says that its unhealthy to wash away the healthy pore coating oil that tries to form in my hair i I washed everyday, so I do so every other day. AND shampooing too much is bad for atopic skin...ANYWAY.

I wash it every other day, sometimes more if the airs dry. I have very straight hair and its easier to style on the second day. Sometimes if I'm feeling icky on the second one I'll get my hair wet in the shower and just use conditioner, then it smells better and I've rinsed it.
