Default How often do you wet/style your hair?

I don't mean spritzing with water for 2nd-day hair, I mean how often do you do a full wet/condition/style with or without washing. I used to do it every day, then every other, and I've slowly gotten down to now just 1-2 times per week. It definitely doesn't look as good on the later days, but I'm just too darn lazy to do the whole thing too often! Just curious what others do. I realize that some of the options may overlap, but most of us aren't exactly the same every week so I put ranges.

I said everyday, although on days I don't leave the house I don't bother (but that is like 1 day a week at the moment, if that). I don't co-wash every day, but probably 4-5 times a week. On days I don't I will still wet my hair through, add any extra product and leave to dry as normal.

I haven't gotten to the point where I can just spritz and go.

Pixie, I'm with you on the twice a week because I'm just too lazy to go through all it entails more often than that!

Because of the cold weather here in Norway, I have to wet my hair at night & pineapple.
I just cant go out with wet hair!

I think it's because I'm still new to everything - I want to try new things all the time, and that means re-wetting my hair/co-washing often. Once I've found the HG routine, and once my pj-ness wears off I'm sure I'll get fed up of it too

I voted everyday because... I do it everyday. My scalp gets gross if I don't wash it everyday. My hair looks better when its styled same day... I just can't master 2nd day hair.

I style my hair 2-3 times a week, but I'm trying to get it down to 1-2 times a week.

Everyday. At this point, my second day is downright scary.

I do a full soak/co-wash every 3-4 days unless I've put something yucky in my hair. Between times I let the shower steam and "spritz" and use moist stylers like Milkshake and BB Styling Lotion

I go in waves on this...every couple of days for a few months and then every three days and sometimes every fourth day for a while and then back to every couple of days. It depends on how good my hair looks or how lazy I am.

I am doing every couple of days now because lately my hair has been looking terrible! I could never do every day because that is just too much time, effort and products. And every fourth day is when I have exausted all possible hair configurations...all down, half up in a barrette or clip, ponytail or messy bun. If there were more ways I knew how to fix my hair, I probably could get away with longer as my scalp doesn't get very dirty since I don't use heavy, waxy stylers anymore!

Once or twice a week is all I need. I have no problem wearing my hair up in between if it looks bad or I will do pincurls or twists to fix it.

I wash/wet my hair 1-2 times a week at the most. My hair is naturally very dry hair and I live where there is hard water, so that is why I don't wash my hair that often.

I condition at least 6 days a week. I was actually able to get decent-looking second day hair for the first time this Sunday. But I don't think I'm mentally prepared to do it on a regular basis.

I voted every day. Sometimes I do second day hair but that's always in a messy bun. But I don't always condition when I take a shower--sometimes I just wet it and detangle with water. I have only gotten 2nd day hair once about a month ago.

2 or 3 times a week. Too much of a pain to do it more often, plus I think my hair prefers getting a break.

I voted every day, although ist's "only" 5-6 times a week. I'm lazy too but I found a simple routine that works OK for me.

My hair takes ab. 2 hours to dry, I'm kind of famous for leaving the house with wet hair.

2nd day hair means knots and tangles. Trying to get those out means cotton candy.
