Washing your hair everyday...
Is this going to damage my hair?

My hair tends to get greasy if I leave it unwashed, but I hear washing your hair daily will dry it out. Should I start wearing a shower cap?

I use to wash my hair every other day, but since I cut it short I really need to wash it/style it everyday. So far, I haven't noticed any damage to my hair. No split ends or anything. I do use a leave-in conditioner every few days, which I think helps a lot. I think it really depends on your hair, but as long as you're hydrating it with conditioner (a good one), I think your hair will be ok.

i wash my hair like twice a week-- if your hair gets greasy, try a dry shampoo like klorane's which is nice for volume-adding styling

I wash my hair almost everyday. I feel gross when I don't but I use hot oil or my hair gets really dry.

I've started only shampooing every-other day. I use Dove's moisturizing shampoo and only use a little on the roots. I tend have an oily head too, but I can't really tell the difference. (Actually I'm kind of dry and oily ) On days when I don't shampoo I just massage my scalp with water, or use conditioner. I think conditioner can clean fairly good as well.

I can't tell if my new habits have worked that great yet. I just want to chop all my hair off because it's so damaged from dying it in the past. I use deep conditioners every day, but nothing can cure the damage.

Whatever I do, I can't stand not showering every day. I keep trying, but it bugs me.

You need to start using a protein treatment on your hair once a week only, anymore and it will totally ruin your hair and make it even more straw like. That combined with a good deep conditioning treatment such as kerestase will help. In terms of the protein treatment, the most effective one I've ever used is the Joico Kpak treatment. Having coloured hair is so expensive lol......

I've been washing my hair everyday for the past three years or so and it's really healthy and beautiful. I use a light leave-in conditioner every other day and let it air-dry as often as possible.

I wash my hair about that much... maybe even a bit less than that... it takes a long time before my hair gets really oily. I love not washing my hair for three or four days because it just LOOKS better. Plus, my hair stays healthy because I rarely blow dry it and use minimal product.

every other day...its very good to have your natural oils come out, they rejuvinate your hair and help to keep split ends out of the picture its worked for me so far.

I read an article by a top trichologist (specialised hair doctor) who said its best to wash your hair every day. He said that hair needs water, moisture and vitamins, and not oil, to stay healthy.

Your diet has a lot to do with how oily your hair will be. I take Omega-3 (fish oil) capsules nearly every day, and since I started, I can really tell that my hair gets more oily faster. I used to be able to just wash my hair every other day, but with the fish oil I really can't or I just feel too gross.

I really have to wash my hair all the time else it gets really greasy and stringy. I'm not really sure why, I wish it could stop. I'll have to try the dry shampoo thing!
