I doubt that washing your hair so many times dries out your natural hair oil. You guys are silly. -___-
It's impossible to dry out your hair from everyday washing, unless you lack some kind of gland in your hair rooting.

So it's like this, on your head you have sebaceous that's often attached to a hair folicle. It contains or secrets AN OILY MATERIAL call sebum gland. And to further elaborate this sebum gland, its a gland that prevents hair to become dry or brittle. Moreover, there's that thing with old time Chinese women combing their hair 100 times/or strokes to so-call get their hair glossy and shining... Uh, yeah, that's the sebum that's creating the shiny-ness. There was something with (if I can remember correctly) the motion (like brushing, tugging, etc..) done on the hair that will activate the sebaceous to release the sebum.

So, there you go, the answer to washing hair and having it to do with drying out one's hair oil. *shakes head* Not possible. I'm glad that I took Bio-20 last semester. *two thumbs up* Love that prof. She was awesome and quite the entertaining lecturer with her funny stories to make a point about something she's lecturing on.

Side note... the thing with baldness, it's a genetic trait disorder that is to be linked with the mother's side of the family. It's so sad, mothers carry the genetic trait that will make their children either bald or not. xD Yeah, life is full or fairness.

>>>>> WASHING HAIR ONLY HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH KEEPING UP YOUR HYGIENE. nothing more, nothing less. -___-


I agree with the whole baldness thing. I find it funny how it's in woman's genes but it's mostly the men who actually do go bald. -- heard it in TV. LOL don't ask.

Although I have to disagree with how you say that washing your hair everyday or however much is NOT bad. Shampoos do have acids in it, and depending on which shampoo you use, it can actually be harmful to your hair. I'm not too big on that detail but my friend takes the hair and aesthetics course in my school and told me about that.

I usually wash it every second day.

It's meant to be good for your hair if you don't wash it in AGES(once a week or something.) and when you do wash it all off, it leaves your hair looking shiny and gorgeous.

wow that's quite a bit of washing

technically it's bad to wash your hair that much since you have more of a chance of gaining lice, who are very attracted to clean hair over dirty hair

washing your hair ever other day is much better for ya, allowing it to obtain natural oils, so that when you do wash your hair it makes your hair super fabulous shiny =D


Gawsh you sound.. pro? Haha
