Does anyone else shampoo daily?

Just curious
Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
I cleanse my hair daily, unless I seriously oversleep. I mainly use low-poos or cleansing conditioners, but occasionally throw in a traditional co-wash or (gasp!) a gentle sulfate shampoo. I don't have a set schedule- I just use whatever I think my hair needs that day.

How do you folks who cleanse daily stand it?

If I were to cleanse daily, I would either have to walk around for 8 hrs with wet/damp hair (which I HATE) or I'd have to diffuse or at least 1/2 hr every day, which is not a lifestyle I ever intend to pursue.

Am I missing something? Do I just need to cut my hair shorter to be able to cleanse & diffuse daily? My hair is fine, medium density, BSL.
2BC/f/II. fine - low/normal porosity - medium density - normal elasticity.

Currently using:
Cowash: Cure Care diluted with water 1:1
RO: Cure Care, V05 Kiwi Lime
Styler: UFD CM (old formula), FSG + CNPF
PT: IAgirl's gelatine

Experimenting with: CeraVe Foaming as low-poo, gelatin gel

light moisture, hydrolized protein, jelly stylers
guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, sulfates
Neutral on cones.

I don't cleanse daily but I have to wet it daily unless I'm going to wear it in a pony tail.

2A/B. Mix of fine, medium, and coarse (mostly medium). Dense. Mix of normal and high porosity.
Dry climate.


My hair is also fine and dense. I almost always air dry and my hair dries between 11:30 and 1:30, depending on what styling products I used (hair is washed and styled by 6:30, so yeah, it's half of my day). I do martial arts most days so my hair just gets too gross at the roots to not cleanse. If I had the energy to get up 20 minutes earlier I would probably diffuse part way, but that almost never happens. I'm not thrilled about the crunchy noodle hair all morning, but I prefer it to my other options.

I wash my hair every morning that I have to go out. So 5 or 6 days a week. I shampoo and condition. I diffuse because otherwise my hair takes a good 4 to 5 hours to dry. It's still moist underneath for hours ever after I diffuse. If I don't wash daily my hair gets oily and I can feel it in my roots. My hair will also get even more limp than usual, esp at the roots -__-

i actually wet and cleanse my hair with something everyday or my scalp hates me and i look really bad with second day hair. I need to start shampooing more often though
Hmmmm. I also wonder about those who are prone to dandruff or SD, like myself. I think having my hair be wet for so long every day (if I don't diffuse) would be just the funnest for the Malassezia yeast. Malassezia Magic Kingdom every day.

I cleanse pretty daily. My hair hates too much product, so I kind of have to. I have to wet my hair every morning anyway, so it doesn't matter too much abut the wet hair. I've been cleansing at night, but thinking about doing it mornings now instead. I used to have awful 1st day hair and good 2nd day. Now it's reversed.
There is no such thing As 2nd day hair for me unfortunately

I wash every day, sometimes with low poo and sometimes with Garnier PureClean (it has ALS which is milder than SLS). If I'm wearing my hair down I diffuse, otherwise I'm rockin' the wet bun look.

There are conditioners and styling products in there too but I didn't want to make a list.

2c/3a, fine, low porosity.

Poo: Garnier Fructis Pure Clean (yes, it has A Sulfate!!, but I have Teflon hair)
Co-wash (when I feel so inclined, which isn't often!): VO5 Kiwi Lime Clarifying Conditioner
Conditioner/LI:
same for both -- whatever I have in the shower at the time (I experiment a lot)
Style: EcoStyler Olive Oil <3
Dry: Diffuse or air dry, or both...depends on my mood

PROTEIN LOVER!!!

Wishing my hair would be more like this ------>

I cleanse daily, but mine really only takes a couple hours to air dry. Maybe an hour to an hour and a half if I diffuse. No biggie for me

I cleanse daily (due to the gym). Would prefer it if I didn't have to but my hairs not quite long enough for a quick up do. I'm lucky that it dries quite quickly and u also have the car heater on low during my drive to work (which takes about an hour).

FYI - my hair is drier, lacks shine and bounce when I wash it so much... :P but I haven't found a compromise...
