This weekend a friend told me that she washes her hair almost every single day, and I was kind of stunned. I started making the calculations: If you wash and condition everyday, that’s around 10 extra minutes per day spent in the shower. Plus, if you blow it dry, let’s tack another 30 minutes on to that and we’re talking almost five hours per week spent on fussing with your hair. (This is a frugal estimate too, since I’m not really factoring in the kind of days where you bust out a complicated hairstyle that involves braids, a perfectly polished blowout or a fancy updo.) Of course, if you have thick monster hair like me, maybe you can get away with less shampooing — and most stylists warn that overwashing is ultimately bad for your scalp and hair since you need to let those natural oils do their job. Then again, if you have fine or thin hair like my friend does, the grease factor can get really unattractive really fast. I prescribed her a regimen of cutting down to four times a week bolstered by Bumble and Bumble hair powder, a talc-like starch you can work into greasy roots to absorb some of the oil. Will keep you posted on how that works out. But now I’m curious: How often are you washing your hair? Do you resent the time it takes or is it just a way of life?
