Now, thanks to a recent survey conducted by the online beauty shop LookFantastic, you can figure out whether your washing habits reflect the average of women in your state. One shocker? A whopping 49 percent of the female population not only wash their hair every day, but also blow dry it seven days a week. (My survey answers must've gotten lost in the mail....)
A whopping 49 percent of the female population not only wash their hair every day, but also blow dry it seven days a week.
When it comes to lather/rinse/repeat obsessives, California takes the top spot: Women in the Golden State keep their manes Beverly Hills-glossy by shampooing every day. (Or maybe they're just constantly washing out that ocean salt.) Following close behind in second place is the unofficial big hair capital of the world: Texas. Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina round out the top five fans of squeaky-clean locks (sudsing up every 1.5 to 1.7 days).
And which states take a more laissez-faire approach to hair care? At an average of once per week, Tennessee women wash their tresses the least frequently. And, averaging one wash every 5.5 to 6 days, the ladies of Maryland, Colorado, Nevada, and Alabama have likely mastered the art of the second- (or third, or fourth) day braid.
As for how best to deal with summer frizz? That's a wash.
Regardless of which camp you belong to, you're in luck: the Instagram-friendly messy updo looks great with every hair type. And in case you were wondering, here's what happens when you don't shower for a month.
