Depends on what I'm doing that day/week.

I typically only wash my hair twice a week, unless I'm going out somewhere special on an "off day" then I will wash it.

Usually every other day during the summer and up to every three days during the winter. I'll wash if it gets particularly greasy and sweaty during the day or after I go to swimming regardless of where I am in my washing cycle.

Usually every other day I'll do a full shampoo and conditioning. Sometimes in the winter I'll just add a dab of conditioner between washed just to tone down the frizzing between shampooing.

I shower every day, sometimes twice a day, but only do a full shampoo/conditioner every other day/sometimes every third day.

I shower every day, shampoo once a week, and condition on shampoo day as well as once or twice in between. Sometimes more in winter.

My hair is curly...the more I wash it, the worse it looks. It turns into a fizzy disaster and I feel like Mrs. Crabtree from South Park minus the birds in my hair. LOL So, I truly wash it with shampoo once a week. I use a "low Poo" shampoo for curly hair. Once my hair got used to low poo hair and the once a week washing, my scalp stopped pumping out oil. So, my hair doesn't get greasy despite my washing it less. If I need to reset the curls or if I have been outside in the dust/pollen/whatever...I just rinse with conditioner only.

I started this curly hair care stuff this past year after I switched hairstylists...I now see my Agility BFF's partner. She was the one to pointed out that my hair wasn't frizzy but curly and I wasn't caring for it correctly. At some point in my 30's, my hair went from wavy to more curl and I didn't really realize it. My old hairstylist, just had me blow it out straight which took forever and was a pain. I wouldn't ever go back to the way I used to wash my hair every other day now that I can see how low poo shampoo and less frequent washings seriously reduces the frizz I had going on.

I wash my hair every 2-3 days with shampoo and conditioner. By day 3, I can usually tell it needs to be washed.

Once or twice weekly depending on activities.

I wash with castile soap diluted with water and things like essential oils added and then rinse with a rinse made by Dr. Bronner.

Every morning and sometimes I'll wash it again at night depending on what I did at work that day.
