Does a woman requires to wash her hair each time she made love with her husband even as it is complicated to always wash and dry the thickly built hair.

الجواب حامداومصليا
Washing of head hair is required for both men and women in an obligatory Ghusl but if a woman's hair are braided then it is permissible not to open the hair as long as water can reach the roots of braids. If the water can not reach the roots of braided hair then she would have to open her hair and wet them.
And Allah knows best.

عن أم سلمة رضى الله عنها قالت: قلت يا رسول الله! انى امرأة أشد ضفر رأسى, أفأنقضه لغسل الجنابة؟ فقال: لا, انما يكفيك أن تحثى على رأسك ثلاث حثيات ثم تفيضين عليك الماء فتطهرين.
