    Some girl told me she rarely shampoos her hair (and it looks great :hsugh: ) and that you're not supposed to shampoo it everyday... well i tried it out for the past 3 days and dam... she was right. My hair looks better/easier to style without using some product (using that stuff is a pain in the ass with my semi long hair so i like being able to shape it and have it stay b/c my hair is oilier now)

    so how often do you shampoo?

    what do you do to keep your head from smelling like shit inbtwn shampoos? (im a guy btw so i dont want to perfume myself + cologne smells like shit with bodyodor)

    yea but I workout + do cardio + go outside + play football + go to the pool etc etc... so i'm not the typical guy who sits indoors all day or doesn't get dirty/smelly

    this is the end of the 2nd day of doing this, and people are saying my hair doesn't smell bad, but doesn't smell that great either lol

    if you're that worried about it, try washing it every night and then put pomade in your hair before you sleep so it has that weird look to it for the next day :dunno:

    I wash it every day. My hair is light blonde so if I don't wash it it gets more greasy and darker in colour.. and it doesn't look so great.

    I don't style it or use any products on it though.. it's just a slightly touselled look. Any products just tend to make it look darker or greasy.

    I just wash mine at night, and then the next day it's pretty awesome.

    I personally hate the feeling of your hair (w/o product) right after the shower, so by giving it the night to 'relax' :dunno:

    Works for me.

    If you play sports or workout regularly, that pretty much forces you to have to shampoo everyday. No big deal, use a good quality gentle shampoo, and apply conditioner. Hair will be just fine compared to somebody who washes every 3 days. And will smell good.

    Using excessive amount of styling products causes way more harm to the hair compared to daily shampooing. If you want to improve hair quality, try using less damaging styling products and try using smaller amount at a time.

    i was told washing hair everyday is not good for that hair because shampoos wash out the natural oils in on your head that is good for your hair

    usually i will skip a couple days of shampoo. i still rinse it every day, but i let the left over product and oils sit in it until it starts to look greasy :o

    I only wash my hair like twice a week...every 3 or 4 days. You can use a dry shampoo like Psssst or Oscar Blandi between shampoos if you feel it gets dingy.

    My hair is much healthier this way.
