I dont know. At least 4 times a week. That could be twice a day though and leave it for 2-3 days or it could be once every day. It also depends on how smelly the kids are as I shower with both of them.

Every day, in the evening. I can't stand getting into bed without being freshly washed. It is very rare that I don't wash my hair daily. I always hear you don't have to, but mine gets greasy fast if I don't. It's often shoved up under a riding helmet, which I am sure doesn't help.

I work with animals so I shower every day. Sometimes if I'm just kicking it at home I'll go a couple of days. I only wash my hair once weekly as I've got really thick, curly hair.

Your hair gets greasy fast IF you wash it every day. If you were to stop washing it every day, the grease would build up for a few days and it would look really greasy for a week or two, but then your scalp would stop producing so much oil and it wouldn't get greasy in between washes.

When I cut back on shampooing, I brushed baby powder through my hair to absorb the oil, and washed it with baking soda every two days.

I tried that, but my hair is too fine and scalp too sensitive. It still gets greasy every single day(while either drying out or breaking out my scalp), and I can't use any products on my hair or it gets weighed down. That includes baby powder and dry shampoo.

I can deal with greasy hair around the house, but no way would I go out on anything less than just-washed hair.

Usually every other day. More if I get sweaty/dirty, or can go an extra day if I haven't been doing much. We bath the kids generally every other day also, with the same guidelines, if they get dirty we wash them, if their not too dirty and we are too tired, we wait an extra day. We all have dry skin, so try not to bathe too much.

And I can't stand to shower without washing my hair. I guess I could get a shower cap, but if my hair gets wet in the shower, I have to wash it.

Usually once a day, but I'm okay skipping a day here or there.

I've tried the baby powder thing, and it didn't seem to do a darn thing for me. I've tried it a few times over the years, sometimes when I've been in a pinch (no hot water or something), sometimes just because someone talked me into it. I've never seen my hair get less greasy from it. I have dark hair and light skin and if my hair isn't clean, it looks horrid pulled back.

Like I said, I can't stand going a full day without showering anyway, so a quick hair wash isn't a hassle to me.

Typically every other day. If I shower after one day, it is just a quick body wash. I just tie my hair up in a sloppy bun and don't dunk it under the water. Every other day I wash my hair/condition/shave. If I go any longer than 48 hours I start to feel gross and my hair gets oily. Not to mention my unshavenness starts to drive me bonkers.

I don't know how people have trouble not getting their hair wet in the shower. I don't wear a shower cap, I just pull it into a bun on top of my head. Idk if it's because I'm so tall, maybe? The water hits my upper back, the back of my neck if I lean back, I just keep my head out from under the water.
