How Rarely Is Too Rarely To Cleanse / Co-Wash?

I have type 3A hair with some 2C locks underneath. I use Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus shampoo, mousse, and smoothie, Young Living Lavender and Peppermint conditioner and Shea Moisture High Porosity Mongongo and Hemp Seed Oils co-wash, masque, and rehydrating spray. I generally alternate between the co-wash and masque, and the shampoo and conditioner, every other wash. I've been washing my hair once every 7-10 days, and am concerned that having washes so few and far between is affecting my curl pattern (I generally have to wear my hair at least half up by day 3). How often should I wash to maintain bouncy curls without overdoing it?
