    Default How often are u shampooing?

    My locs are 17 mo old and now that it's warmer in ATL, after 2 or 3 days of working out, I can smell the sweat in my scalp. So it's time to wash my hair every few days and I'm wondering if anyone else is doing it too.

    There is a boatload of us doing it. I wash my hair at least once a week with shampoo and twice a week with conditioner. But almost every morning my scalp and hair a wet, because I like water.

    In the fall winter months about every 2-3 days. In the summer every day. Water and soap never hurts dreads. Eventually you can find what works best for your hair. Some may feel every day is too harsh or once a week is not enough. Trial and error. :-)

    a little over a year and a half loc'd.

    this past fall/winter i've been doing once a month washings and every few days i wet my hair. once summer hits i'm going to go back to washing every 2-3 weeks. my scalp really doesn't ask for any more than that right now.

    Default Re: How often are u shampooing?

    4 months locked and I wash weekly. I've noticed when I don't wash my hair it feels dry. As shampoo is all I use, I think water is my moisturiser.

    I wash, co-wash, or rinse daily. The time of year does not matter. I've been locked for just over 16 months. Love it.
