    I used to wash every day, or atleast every day that I used product but lately i've been only washing my hear twice per week and noticed that it's much healthier and shinier (not greasy). I think I was overwashing and stripping the oils from my hair. Also, I dye it fairly often (premature greys) and that has really dried it out too. I try not to use product every day, only when necessary so that I only need to wash it 2 or maybe 3 times per week (of course, I shower daily and atleast rinse it off in hot water but only use shampoo 2-3 x per week now).

    I've noticed a definite improvement.

    Pretty much every day. My hair's thick, on the long side (well, on the long side compared to my professional peers, anyway) and prone to ridiculous cowlicks. If I don't wash it it tends to feel "heavier" and is more prone to stick out in absurd directions. Sometimes I'll skip washing it on the weekend to give it a break, but most weekend days I go to the gym or work out, and I always wash it after that.

    i shower every day, but only wash my hair once a week at most. of course, i dont comb it either... or do anything to it but run my fingers thru it to keep the dreadlocks out. its been at least 6 months since i cut it last.

    ive found my hair is straight for a day after i wash it, then it starts to curl. i perfer it curly. so do the womenz.

    I think it is important to note how long you hair is. I have hair down to my shoulders and wash it everyday. I know when I had short hair once a week was fine. I'm going to try ever other day from reading this thread though.

    every 2 or 3 days.. kind of on an as needed basis.

    I've noticed that after my hair got trained to being washed more frequently, it took less time for it to get greasy after a shower. Now it takes almost 3 days to get greasy at all with no product.

    Whenever my hair gets dirty. My hair is best 'the day after' a shampoo. Normallly, I would shampoo every 2 days.
