It surprises me how many posting wash their hair every day. -- It is my observation that hair becomes accustomed to what you do. In other words, if you begin to add a day between washing, then it will adjust and not be so "in need of a wash" every day.
I had a college girlfriend that was going to be travelling / camping in Middle Eastern countries and would have VERY limited access to water, showers, etc. She began 2 months before leaving, to add additional day(s) to her routine w/ her hair, body, etc. She and several other girls were able to recondition their hair to do fairly well with ONE shampoo, wash & condition per week. (Granted, their climate they were travelling in was dry. But it certainly was hot and sweat was a part of life.)
So all that aside. I wash my hair every 4 days. And I exercise 300+ min. per week, most weeks. And I have to have a towel due to the sweat. -- I shower daily, but cover my hair.
* Maybe it goes back to an old-fashioned upbringing where our hair was shampooed once a week on Saturday--to look nice for Sunday!
-- Seems like all the shampooing that is done + all the additives in shampoos / conditioners aren't doing anyone any good!?!
??? Train you hair while you train your body??? Hmmm... a new "study" for someone that has nothing to do! They could entertain us w/ the answer!?!
