I shower daily, so my hair gets wet everyday, but I only wash/condition it Mon/Wed/Fri. The other days I just condition (well, Sunday I do a protein treatment) it, but I use the conditioner "like" a shampoo.. I still work it into my hair a bit. I have extremely fine/thin hair (I've been losing it for a few years) and it's still never oily or anything like that. But, I also have curly hair, which is naturally more dry.. hence why I could NEVER wash it daily, it'd be a puff ball LOL.

I mean, I have curly hair and don't brush my hair... sooo maybe if I had straight hair that I was running a brush through, it'd get oily. I don't know. And it's not that I can go days without co-washing though, either... my scalp starts to feel yucky if I don't scrub off all the junk every day.

IMO washing your hair is more about the "motion" and less about what you actually use. If you just gently rubbed shampoo through your hair, that's not really gonna do much as far as cleaning goes. Massaging it into your scalp is where the actual cleaning comes in.

Yes, I have noticed that my hair gets just as clean with conditioner as it does with shampoo if I work it into my scalp really good once or twice (if its really dirty) then if I just smooth it through.

I have thin straight hair - extrensive brushing does make it oily (at least for me) I brush well in the morning - esp. after I washed my hair. I only use ONE brush for that. During the day I'll use a comb, same in the evening. Using a comb def. helped alot as aposed to a brush. I do have to brush in the morning though because my hair tangles easily.

Does he wash every day? I feel like as girls, we're told how damaging that can be, but lots of men don't get that memo. Boys are also more likely to skip conditioner. Changing to a sulfate free shampoo would likely help, too.

My hair is absolutely nasty if I don't wash it every 24 hours. I can't imagine not washing it every day.

I don't shower everyday unless I'm really sweaty and gross so I don't usually do anything special to my hair in between. If I'm icky then I'll get it wet but that's pretty much it. If I worked out on a regular basis then I'd probably end up doing more.

When he asked me he was washing it daily and not using conditioner at all.
I told him to start with the conditioner and we would go from there.
I am shopping for an affordable SLSfree one now.
He has started using a axe all over body wash and it is helping , but it still is
frizzy, but some curls are starting to stay curly and not frizz.
i will get some pics later tonight. He also brushes it , i told him to finger brush it but he says its not brushed then. should i suggest a pick and a leave in.
his hair is kenny g curly also.

Combing rather than brushing would help the curls form but won't do much to help frizz caused by dryness. Also a good diet, vitamin e supplement, and staying hydrated will help.
