Did anyone else give those blogs a double take when they suggested washing your hair about once a week? With my relaxed hair I was washing it, every other day or so. With the mousse, and gel, and hairspray I would often add to it, I found myself washing my hair quite often. But now, my shampoo lasts a whole lot longer when I shampoo every week or so. My hair is thanking me for it. i do usually just co-wash, but really I could just rinse it in the shower and sort of massage my scalp to get the curls back. Not a heck of a lot to it.
