Spooky, I suppose it all depends on the type of hair you have and the shampoo you use. Most of the better shampoos are gentle enough to use everyday, but I suppose if you can get away with it, washing your hair less frequently would be better. On the other hand, I would rather lose all my hair than walk around with oily/dirty hair. Good luck.
