Habit 1: Shampoo sparingly Almost every woman talked to says they only shampoo and condition their hair every other day or two to three times a week. Reader Aly says her thick hair can only handle a washing every three to four days and "actually like[s] it best by the 2nd or 3rd day because it's weighted down enough!" she says. Reader Lindsay agrees claiming she only washes her hair every three days with gentle shampoos and conditioners that don't contain sulfates, which she says, "are good for my hair and the environment". Perfect-haired Holly declares she only uses shampoo twice a week: "I guess you could call that a secret, but it's widely known that if you wash it to much, it dries it out." If shampooing only twice a week will leave your hair an oily mess, fret not. Other perfect-haired women like Amanda say they wash it every other day which still protects it from being "dry or over-worked." she says.
