I'm a bloke and therefore lazy. Hair gets washed once a week because I hate damp hair on my back and neck. It tends to look better when greasy though.
Yes its complicated.
OMG! This thread is just getting depressing (and self defeating).Probably as complicated as it is with me. I have long (14"+) hair, and I rinse/comb my hair daily in hot water, which serves to rinse most of the crud, but not all of whatever eminates from my pores to provide nutrients and substinence to my hair. I hit it with conditioners once a week, but I'm beginning to think whatever my own body produces to help my hair has gone through a million years of evolotion, at least, and is probably far better than anything I might find in any "beauty" store, even if that's the isles of Wal-Mart
My hair looks best when all I've done is given it a hot rinse in the shower for more than a week. Only then has my mom commented on my curls, the color thereof, etc....
Just wish someone my own age would appreciate the same.
On the other hand, if we're going to discuss hair syles, I've gotten pretty good results with Clairol Natural Instincts #13. It looks very natural. The fact that some of the grey on the sides refuses to color helps a little bit, I think. It has a mature, but not old, look.
