Perhaps, but I think it has to do with standards of hygiene. It's been a very recent development that the average person could shower everyday.

Women used to go to salons and get their hair done and that was the only place they really washed their hair. It's why we have iconic images of women sleeping in rollers and scarves.

Once a week to everyday shampooing is a big leap.
