Wink How long you can wait till you need to wash?

Hey girls I was wondering how long you had to wait before washing your hair (in average) and what's the longest time you left them without having to wash them?

I'm just starting Curly Girl method (2 weeks ago) so my longest time is not really epic; 3 days straight with decent hair.

Otherwise, I generally wash it every other day for now.

Not sure exactly what you mean by "wash" (cowash? low-poo? wet and restyle?), but I can go up to three days without needing to do anything to my hair if my first day hair came out well.

I typically cowash every other day due to my workout schedule.

I can go up to four days before co-washing and have decent hair but I rarely get to that point because I do cardio every other day. So it's usually just up to third day hair. (For instance, I washed Sunday morning and I'm going to wash tonight after working out.) I've never tried just wetting and restyling though.

I can go 5 days with it looking good and no dry shampoo i don't know why but my hair does not really get greasy at all... But I tend to wash it 2-3x a week just cause 5 days sounds gross haha

My hair doesn't get greasy either, it gets more and more frizzy and messy.

I live in Florida so I cowash or lowpoo every other day in the summer, my scalp gets pretty gross if I go 3 days. I can go a little longer in the winter.

Even with working out I just have such dry skin my scalp doesn't really get oily quick. The max my hair can go without being poo'ed is around five days. I know when my hair is dirty when it refuses to clump or respond to products.

I wet and condition pretty much every day, but scrub my scalp by cowashing or low poo 2-3x a week, depending on what my hair needs.
