The poll doesn't allow for more than once a week but less than every day. I wash my hair two to three times a week because my hair is very dry. I don't normally use hair products so it stays clean for a few days. If I do use any kind of products, I usually wash it within 24 hours though.

I voted once a week, but I actually wash it twice a week - or more if I've gotten sweaty working out. I have long hair that I usually keep in a ponytail or braids. No reason to wash it every day.

I use to wash it every day, but in the past year or so (I'm 34) that has been making it too oily. NOw I wash it every other day to every third day, my hair is much happier and healthier for it. The bad thing is it doesn't look as great on the second day, so I wear lots of ponytails.

Smile Hair

I wash it every day. It is oily. If I go for a day and a half, very oily. It is fairly straight, thank God.

When I was a kid, (there were 4 of us), if the hair dryer (blower) was in use, we would go outside and stand by the air conditioner, dried in like 2 seconds, super straight.
