i've heard varied times so far on this site and i just want to get a general idea of how often people wash their locks. i'll post how often i do mines after a few replies i guess. but i can already tell you some of you wash way more often than me.

Why are you waiting for others to post how many times they wash their hair before you say how often you do? I don't understand the point in that. Everyone is different when it comes this.

thats basically what i said in my post.
i just wanted to get a general idea of everything first.
@kris thats wild man. 3-4 times a week. i'll go like once every two to three weeks, maybe every week when it gets mid july to the end of august, but even then thats kinda soon. in between washings i use this stuff i made up in a spray bottle.

oh whoops i misposted haha not too far off but i do 2-3 times a week.

But yea, wash your hair whenever it feels like it needs to, i know some people wash once a week but thats probably the longest most people would want/recommend.

I wash mine once a week usually. If I am doing really dirt work or something i will wash it more often. In the coldest part of the winter I wash less. I have an old house that is not heated well. Wet hair for hours when it is that cold is miserable!

once a week.. it takes far too long for mine to dry and i don't have time to wash it more often.. sometimes i leave it a bit longer, but the itching drives me crazy!!

At this point, twice a week works for me. I still have some undreaded hair that tends to get oily after a few days, but not daily as it was before dreading. I wash when I feel dirty, end of story.
