Every day, and my diet won't impact that. I find most people find it objectionable if I go riding and spend time with the horses, and don't I use a very pure glycerine soap though, and keep it to a minimum. I have found that after just a couple of weeks of going PB, my skin is less dry and feels softer, and my tattoos are brighter.
Fighting fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain since 2002.
I wash every day, but shower a lot less. Unless I've been doing a lot of first-fixing/chasing at work. Then I just want the dust and concrete out of my hair and off my skin. It's the lesser of two evils to lose som natural skin oil at the same time.
Once or twice a week? I wash my hair with ACV and Egg Yolk every 7-10 days, so I shower then. I also shower when I notice that I need to shave, so it varies--but I guess about once or twice a week.
Primal actually didn't bring this "odd" habit about. You know how some people say they always liked meat and fat, and they love PB because it allows for that? That's how I am with showering and soap, haha. I've never been a big "washer" but I've never smelled bad either. I love that Primal encourages less soap!
Edit: I will say though, that when pre-PB I used regular shampoo and conditioner and I lathered up with soap whenever I showered. Now I just rinse with water. This week, I've stopped soap in the pits (the only place I did still suds) and I'm trying a home deodorant. We'll see if it works out!
Daily, though occasionally I'll skip a day or two on the weekend. Twice a day if I've been grappling with sweaty dudes on unwashed judo mats - yuck. I've always loved showering (my parents used to yell at me to leave everyone else some hot water) and find the warm water a pleasant way to wake up in the morning, not to mention the fastest way to fix my bed head. Also, I'm kind of stinky by nature
I like to smell good, smelling good is nice. Soap is nice. Shampoo is nice. Whether grok used them or not is really not a concern to me. I'd rather imitate grok by swinging from trees and lifting odd objects, personally.
I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.
