Once a week.
We don't use shampoo at all. They don't have product build up so I find it unnecessary for my kids. I just wash their hair with conditioner (Tresseme Naturals, Shea Moisture Co-Wash). We don't use conditioners with any "cones" in them because cones can only be shampooed out or it will cause build up. I only use water and a natural oil (olive, coconut, avocado, sweet almond, etc) to style my kid's hair.
My kids get bathed or take a shower with me almost everyday or every other day. I wash their hair once a week with shampoo. (It's the baby shampoo) We've had the same bottle since my 3 year old was born so that should tell you something, lol.
Every day, or might possibly skip a day here or there. She has weird hair. It's gorgeous, but it gets random dry spots that can get knots. If I skip a day though, it gets oily and harder to manage. Plus it's on the thicker side and is curly and she's always getting shit in it.
Maybe once a week... but I don't really use shampoo or conditioner. I just use coconut oil in it afterwards. I used to use a leave in conditioner but can't find the one I used to use anywhere. They both have super curly hair and washing it too often would lead to lots of frizz.
Quoting Just Ames:" Tea Tree Oil is wonderful for this! Add a few drops to her shampoo for "maintenance" to not catch it again."
Done :wink: as soon as I found the lice, the tea tree oil was in her shampoo.
She gets stuff in it and its a tangled mess if I don't.
I also have to condition it everyday or else it gets tangled too.
once a week her hair doesn't get very dirty and I wash mine 2-3 times a week but mine gets greasy kinda fast so if I could I'd go a week like she does. that's what my hair stylist said was best for us
