How often do you wash your hair?

In a recent interview with People Magazine, Connie Britton said she only washes her hair about once a week.

I was shocked.

My skin and hair tend to be dry and yet I still wash my hair three to four times per week–more frequently if I go to the gym.

Unless I get a professional blowout, Day 1 tends to be my best hair day.

Day 2 requires decisions: do I go over it with a flat iron? Do I dampen my hair and wear it wavy, making the most of whatever happened during wild sleeping? Do re-blowdry the hair around my face?

Sometimes it’s just easier to wash and start over!

This week I made a conscious effort to see how long I could go without shampooing and conditioning my hair, washing it Tuesday morning. By Thursday, I was brushing my hair approximately hourly. I wanted so badly to hop in a shower and scrub my scalp and hair.

And truly, my hair looked like crap. By noon, it was in a sloppy ponytail.
