    I don't shampoo very often. It sounds gross but, the hair cut lady I go to says my hair is more healthy and thicker then ever.

    I use shampoo every day, but only once. If I work out a bit and take a shower before bed I'll just rinse off.

    I shampoo my hair every other day or in the summer everyday if I'm out and get really hot or start to sweat it just makes me feel clean once it's washed

    I shampoo my hair every day, and condition every other day.

    "chemical-free"? You do know that air and water are chemicals, right? I understand what you mean by "green" but it's far more important energy and food-wise than in shampoo. I understand their ingredients are generally benign.

    That said I use regular shampoo once a day, and not really a lot of it. Just enough to keep my hair from getting matted.

    Do you need shampoo? Not really. I think the reason why most people prefer it though is that it helps with your hair texture and is easy to apply.

    My city is so polluted I wouldn't even think of going a day without washing my hair... I come home after work and my lips taste like dirt from the pollution... I also have pretty long hair... like down to the small of my back~ so, that ish needs to be taken care of XD;;;;

    I use an organic herbal shampoo once a month/once every two months. Back when I had longer hair I washed it every 2-3 days and it was thick, shiny and healthy albeit coarse.
    Now that I've cut my hair short, I wash it daily, or every other day since it dries faster and I can do it quickly under running water.

  15. i use shampoo but only wash my hair twice a week because its oily and apparently the more you wash it the more oily it gets. sometimes pushing my luck once a week. (call me a skank haha).

    deffo helps with oil production though (for my hair anyway)

    I only wash my hair about every other day and I use LUSH's shampoo bars (scalp exfoliation ftw). Since cutting down my washing times and switching to non-chemical shampoo, I've had a massive drop in oil and dandruff. (~.n)b

    I hate using shampoo or harsh soaps. I get really dry skin and it itches like crazy. So I just don't do it.

    I use a mild natural soap or salt scrub on my skin and just let my hair do whatever. I condition without shampooing pretty regularly and only use shampoo when there has been product in my hair.

    I also don't shower every day, maybe a few times a week...and when I do, I use cooler water. The hot water dries out my skin real bad and I'm not a very sweaty person and I work inside so I don't even feel dirty after most days.

    My skin is hella soft and my hair is really really shiny and full looking. And I feel and smell fine so I must be doing something right.

    LUSH <3 <3 I love their products (many of them are vegan and none of them are tested on animals) but their shop is always overwhelmingly fragrant.

    That reminds me, I should go buy some face scrub.

    I use shampoo everyday. When I leave a day out and don't wash it, my hair gets sooooo greasy :icon_sad:
