Poll: How Often Do You Wash Your Hair?

When it comes to hair, every woman has her own routine. What may work for one, might not be the best option for another since there are many different hair types, from fine to thick and oily to dry.

That's why the number of times you wash your hair is often a very personal decision. Some women wash their hair every day; some every other day; and some may only wash it once a week— especially with the magic of dry shampoo. Women can postpone washing their hair even longer and prolong a blowout!

So we want to know your shampoo number—how often do you wash your hair?

    I wash 1 to 2 times a week because sometimes I style my hair using hairspray or mousse without using any products I would probably go longer I believe the natural oils are good for hair & skin. I have long hair down my back slightly wavy medium thick all natural. †

    Most of the time I wash it once a week with shampoo and sit for an hour with a hair mask (usually on Saturdays. Sometimes I'll wash twice a week but only wet it than apply a 5 Minutes Mask (no shampoo).

    I have long wavy thick hair that is colored red.. I only wash 1-2 times per week to keep my color from fading. I also put the John Freida Clear Glaze on my dry hair for 20 minutes before washing.

    I have to wash my hair everyday, because the next day it's already very oily and dirty looking. I also have fine hair.

    I wash my hair once a week; it can be quite dry as I have colour on it and it is naturally curly .

    I can go the longest 4 days and I wear my hair down. I have thick hair which makes it easier to go that long ... It doesn't look gross either I swear, get compliments on day 4 then I tell them it's day 4 since a washing...some people think its gross :)

    I wash mine every other day. Would like to wash it less often, but have oily, semi curly, frizzy hair that gets unruly w/out washing frequently. Dry shampoo does not work well on my hair and tends to make it sticky and dry looking.

    I wash my hair once a week. I also don't much like to use shampoo, and I'm planning to stop. It's not necessary; conditioner only, water only, baking soda and vinegar, etc., can all work fine.

    I actually shampoo every 5-7 days. My hair doesn't get too oily and since it's dark, curly and long, I don't feel like it's necessary because washing it drys my hair out. Besides, my best hair day is 2 days in from a wash :)

    It depends on how I am wearing it. My hair is naturally curly and very frizzy, and almost down to my butt, so if I spend an hour blowing it out and an then another 45 minutes flat ironing it, I will go 2-4 days without washing it, depending on weather and other circumstances. If I wear my hair naturally curly, I wash it daily, because I have to use ALOT of product just to keep the curls and frizz tamed, so I like washing it out of my hair.....How about YOU, NewBeauty how often do you wash your hair?

    About 1-2 times a week. I color my hair and I have really thin, fine, very long hair. If I wash it more than that, it becomes completely unmanageable and dry. Not sexy! lol.

    Depends. Most the time once to twice a day if I workout, but I am a competitive swimmer. But when not swimming every other day.
