As a black woman, the notion of washing your hair every single day is foreign to me. Since the texture of the black woman's hair is different than that of other races, it's not recommended or required of us to wash our hair every day because of how dry and brittle it can become. On the other hand, my non-black friends find it interesting to know that I don't wash my hair every day and always question me about it. Surprisingly though, there are weird things that happen if you don't wash your hair every day — regardless of your race — and not all of them are bad.
I've never washed my hair more than once a week. To be honest, I really wash my hair bi-weekly, but will do it weekly depending on what that week consisted of. For me, daily washing of my hair just seems like a bad idea, but if it works for you, keep doing it. I would like to point out, however, that there are many benefits of not washing your hair daily that I'm sure any woman would appreciate. Of course, the texture of your hair has a lot to do with how it acts when it's clean or dirty, so being knowledgeable of what works for you is super important.
Not sure whether or not washing your hair daily is something you should continue? These 11 things can help you determine if you should decrease your cleaning frequency or keep it going.
