Do You Shampoo Your Hair Everyday?

Do you shampoo your hair every day? What about conditioner? I read that it was not good to shampoo your hair every especially if it is dry. But it is ok to put conditioner but rinse thoroughly. I used to shampoo every day but when I noticed my hair was getting brittle I stopped. I tried to shampoo every other day only. Sometimes if I am not going anywhere I just take a half bath or shower. Sometime I wet my hair but most of the time I don't. I only shampoo and put conditioner if I have to go somewhere and the next day because I don't like to wet my hair at night so next day I shampoo.

When we get older the strands of our hair becomes thin even if we take supplements. Stress can also cause thinning of hair and unhealthy strands.

When you brush or comb your hair when it is wet it easily breaks. So better wait when it is almost dry and comb slowly. You can even put some hair lotion or leave on conditioner to make the hair soft and full.

Having a hot hair treatment at least once a month is also good for the hair and scalp because the beautician usually massages your head and scalp then placing the hot oil treatment, cover with a towel and place the steamer. The steam and heat help the treatment get absorbed in the hair strands. The head and scalp massage helps relieve the stress and stimulates the hair follicles.

It is good to take care of you hair to prevent premature balding :)

My stylist told me 20+ years ago that I should only shampoo a couple of times a week. My hair is long so I always brush it before I wash. It helps keep loose hair from clogging my drain and allows me to wait until my hair is dry before I brush it.

I only shampoo about twice a week. I wet it on other days if I need to.

I wash my hair every 2 to 3 days. It is better for it, not as dry.

I wash my hair every other day. I used to take two showers a day, once in the morning and another before bed. My hairdresser said my hair was getting damaged from all the washing. So I wash and condition it every other day. I don't use hair spray or mousse in it any more so it stays clean longer without it. I do have a leave in conditioner spray that I use if I'm going out somewhere.

Actually I do but a lot of my friends are telling me not too because it is harmful to one's hair.

Yes I am and I recognized you too. :) That's true that is why I use conditioner instead of shampoo...unless that is harmful as well...

How often I wash my hair is directly related to how much outside work I do and how hot and humid the weather is. In my climate if you go outside in the summer you sweat A LOT. During gardening season when I might spend several hours a day outside I have to wash it every day, like it or not. I tried just rinsing it good with water but by the next morning it smells dirty and I can't stand it. I recently visited Colorado and it's dry there. I easily got away with washing my hair every other day.
