How often?

How often do you wash your hair?
I am used to washing it every day, but I'm not sure if it's ok? I feel dirty if I don't do it though. My hair gets oily during the day;;;;
Is blow drying ok if I do it everyday? Does it damage my hair a lot or not?

Hi, Emilia!

I wash my hair about once a week (and more often in the summer months) because I have normal to dry hair.

It's normal to wash our hair daily if it gets oily. It's important to feel comfortable (and clean). :)

I think blow drying is fine, as long as the hair dryer isn't too close to the hair/scalp - otherwise it might do damage, especially if it's done daily.

I have long hair so I wrap mine in a towel to absorb the excess water. Then I let the air do the rest of the job :) - especially in the warm weather.
In the winter months, I sit with my back facing a space heater/fireplace and let the warm air do the rest of the job.

I wash my hair in the evening so I'm not rushed for time. If I were to wash my hair in the morning before school or work, then I'd see how a hair blow-drier would be beneficial. ;)

(Guys are lucky with short hair, aren't they!) :D
