WASH YOUR HAIR! Posted on 12-02-2004

Dallas, TX
I know they are a lot of hair post but think about it, hair Is an important issue to Black women. But my question is, how often do you wash you hair? This has been a controversial subject for us Black women for many years but how often do you truly feel we as as sistas should wash our hair. My mom use to say "Stop, washing you hair so damn much, you ain't White!" HEaven knows I don't want to be white but I just couldn't stand my hair to be dirty. Now I know it is out of the question to wash it everyday, unless you got that "other" kinda hair. But I feel the need to wash mine every week. I hate when my hair starts to overly smell like hair products and feels heavy. Any imput sistas.

from what my hair dresser has told me african amercian women should not wash our hair everyday. white girls do it because their hair get grease and dirty and nasty ours doesn't. we need the **** in our hair to make it grow and be healthly and strong. Me personaly i was my hair about every 2 weeks. i like the way it works when it is semi dirt semi clean. it curls right lays right and thats alright with me! But i gues it is whatever floats your boat!!

I was my hair every week half of the time. I can go two weeks alot of the time because I don't put anything but shampoo, conditioner and setting lotion in my hair.

oh its cool, like my hair does get dry if i wash it everyday with "shampoo" because it strips it of its natural oils, but if I wash everyday with conditioner (especially that suave lol) it actually adds moisture and shine......, like every morning i just let the conditioner sit on my head for like 5 minutes then just rinse it out......for MY hair, if i didnt do this and just shampooed my hair every 2 weeks, my hair would be even more frizzy and **** just because i have naturally dry hair to begin with .....but thats just for my head...but someone who had a GORGEOUS fro tipped me on that, and ive been hooked ever since....

So many people say dirty hair grows fast. That is a lie! Before I moved to Springfield last semester, I would get my hair done every 2-3 weeks and get it washed and stuff. When I went to SPringfield, I didn't have anyone to do my hair and I had to do it myslef so I wore it curly, my natural hair. I washed my hair every week and my hair grew 1.5 inches in 2 months. WASH THAT SCALP!

Washing your hair is healthy. I wash mine every 2-3 weeks. Keeping it moisturized and not using heat is also very good. People say that my hair has grown too. I don't know how much though.
