haha yeah... i practically wash it everyday... like 6x a week... and sometimes... i would wash it twice a day.. morning + night... like i'm not even dirty or sweaty... but i just feel like taking a shower and washing my hair for no reason well i heard that washing it often is good for hair growth.. which i want cause i want it longer so i can do more with it... and a bad thing i heard was that it will get more oily because you're washing out the natural nutrients... anything else that is bad??? also i know that you're supposed to wash it everyother day... but i just can't do that... my hair starts to bug me after i wake up or after i come home from school

I think it'll f it up in the long run... I'm not sure. I use to be like you, I washed my hair everyyyy day. I decided to just start washing it every other day.. Well just force yourself to. The hair isn't controlling you lol.

Shampooing strips your hair of its natural oils, drying it out.

i heard if you wash it too much it will become dry because you're washing all the oil away, and oil keeps it healthy (not too much though)

i used to wash my hair everyday but then i decided to wash it every other day because if i would wash my hiar for a day it would become really oily but now it doesnt happen no more because i wash it every other day

oh you're not supposed to wash thoroughly everyday because you will strip the hair's natural oils and it'll be brittle and dry(break easy, easy to damage) so washing every other day and using conditioner is good too

washing it everyday might be ok if you use hair masks/treatments often & use a moisturising shampoo & conditioner/leave in conditioner but twice a day is way too much. washing your hair too much can cause dandruff, dry & frizzy hair & if you irritate your scalp you will cause more oil production

its really not good to wash your hair too often..

i think once every two days is the best...das what my hairdresser told me..and it feels thebest the second day afteri wash it..its the softest i think..but this has alot to do with weather also

it will get dry, frizzy and hard to manage. I take a bath and wash my hair up to 14 times a week (twice a day) since it's hot, but yeah my hair became from smooth to rough and filled with fly aways

well doing too much of anything is never gonna be GREAT for you, but i think showering a lot is A LOT WORSE for your skin than it is for your hair. so make sure you always moisturize with lotion and use a really mild body wash when you shower cause it could really dry it up. =]

oh yeah and your conditioner will weigh down your hair.

usulaly when you shampoo, you condition.

it tends to dry ur hair out because the nutrients in ur hair are being washed away...

but i wash my hair once a day, everyday. i can't stand going to sleep with greasy, dirty hair... but i need to use conditioner and hair moisturizer to keep my hair healthy

if your hair gets really oily in a short period, get a really fine brush and brush your hair more often. the thinner the bristles are, the more evenly it'll disperse the natural oils in your hair, so you won't have to wash it every day
