Hi, I have always had very short hair and now that I have grown it, just wondering how often I should wash it? I have heard that every day can damage the hair, but don't know if that's true.
I could Google this, but I like to get a personalised answer from real people ;) Thanks all.

Depends on why you wash your hair and what you wash it with. If you have dandruff and use a special shampoo, like head and shoulders or whatever, then everyday washing is necessary, (my brother uses head and shoulders.)
If you have really oily hair you have two options really based on your preferences. If 1) You don't mind oily hair or even prefer it (there are many reasons oily hair is beneficial; Google that (= keeping in mind of course that oily does not mean greasy) then wash your hair every other day to prevent drying out your hair and scalp. Or 2) If you don't like oily hair, wash it everyday.
Personally I wash my hair everyday, I just like clean hair. Not to say unwashed hair is unclean hair, I just feel like it is. But I'm a bit of a clean freak.
