    I find that it's just the opposite. When I go too long between washes, my hair is dry as a bone. (Product buildup = not much water getting to the hair shaft.)

    I wash my hair about once a week. I would like to find a way to wash it every 4-5 days. But when it's not in box braids, mid-week washings are difficult to fit in.

    I shampoo weekly with sulfate free shampoos without dryness. I don't co-wash. I use elasta qp creme conditioning shampoo. I'm also a fan of the new creme of nature argan oil moisture and shine shampoo.

    Somebody -- might have been The Natural Haven -- did a poll recently asking how much people shampooed vs. co-washed. I think most people were like me: Shampoo regularly, co-wash occasionally.

    I shampoo once a week with a shampoo that will purposely strip my hair of product because I WANT it to be completely naked and ready to receive the conditioner (and later, other products) I put on it. I alternate between Hello Hydration (sulfate) and Giovanni Deeper Moisture (sulfate-free) and my hair is JUST FINE. I might co-wash once between shampoos if I want to recover some of my coil definition but other than that...nope.

    In the beginning, if you really don't know anything about natural hair care, you're going to go along with the herd...but eventually you're going to have to figure out what works best for YOU alone.
    Hello, 2021. Glad to see you. Hope you're bringing us goodness and light this year!

    I love the feel, look, and smell of my hair after a fresh wash so it is pretty much a weekly shampoo for me. But I can see myself washing it two to three times a week like I did last week. I am only three months into this journey so it is all new to me. Some other naturals at work have told me that I am doing too much to my hair. But then they turn around and tell me how much my hair has grown and how nice it looks every day

    no issues with dryness but i also use non sulfate shampoos. i use oyin honey wash
    ^^ I started doing 5:30am cardio at the track everyday and the humidity is ridiculous by 6:30am The cardio im doing isn't even the hardcore stuff like what your probably talking about and I'm sweating like crazy afterwards so I should probably start doing daily rinses or something.
    Also I've been wanting to try oyin products. Do they only sell online?

    ^^The bolded makes so much sense lol.
    And yea youre right it is easy to get caught up in what the mass is doing. I suppose ultimately its a game of trial and error.

    I shampoo at least once a week with Kinky Curly poo and twist with KC Knot Today. I work out daily so co washing in between shampooing is a must.

    My hair likes Shampoo. I love Sheamoisture and Organic Root Stimulator. I shampoo whenever my hair feels dirty. I only cowash when I work out and dont feel like shampooing or when I run out of shampoo. I like sulfate and sulfate free shampoos, never had any problems with my hair.

    I used to shampoo my hair every two to three weeks, but as I learn more about my hair, I realized that my scalp and my hair can't deal with waiting that long for a wash. Now I shampoo every week with shampoo bars. My hair is grateful for it.
