Every day to every other day, and I wash my hair every time I shower. I usually shower at night because I can't depend on waking up in time to shower. But my hair looks sooo much better when I shower and then blow dry and straighten it.

Generally every other day. More often if I get peed on or something gross like that, or if I just feel dirty/stinky/whatever. But usually every other day. I also condition my hair every other day, and shampoo once or twice a week. I have issues with transitioning into the water and again transitioning out of the water (part of my autism) so I don't do it more than I need to.

I shower at night because I cannot tolerate blow-drying my hair. I let it dry overnight and then straighten it if needed in the morning (to de-frizz or something). I'm also SOOOOO not a morning person lol. When I work at the zoo I have to be to work at 8 but cannot be even one minute late, so I get up at 7 and take my time, I leave around 7:45. When I work at the clinic I have to be to work at 7, but it's just a ballpark figure - depending on the number of dogs in the hospital I go in earlier or later as needed, so I get up at about 6:25 and leave at 6:45.

Once a day, at night, so I always go to bed clean. I wash my hair every other day or two.

I try to shower every night, but I sometimes skip a day or two. My hair starts to get really greasy after a couple days, though. I can't skip more than two days. It starts looking dull after a day and GROSS after two.

Oh, and I shower at night so my hair will be dry in the morning. If I blow dry it, it looks crappy. If I shower in the morning, I either won't wash my hair or I have to either braid it or have time for it to air dry. I also hate feeling dirty when I go to bed, and I'm way to lazy to get up an hour earlier in the morning to shower. Lol

I can't shower unless its super hot and my hair gets sweaty if I just leave it up, or at least I feel it is sweaty.

1-2 times a day depending. Time 2 is just if I need a relaxing bath. I LOVE either a bubble bath and doing my nails or a bubble bath and reading.
