    Do you wash your hair after every workout?

    Advertisements
    Growing up i was taught to wash my hair every other day so i don't strip my scalp of natural oils. But i recently started pushing myself to work out at least 4-5 times a week and it feels weird not washing my hair after workouts. So, my question is: wash or don't wash? what's everyone's opinion?

    I wash my hair every day, my hair just doesn't work if it isn't clean. I would absolutely be washing it if it was all sweaty, like I just can't deal with that.

    I have a fauxhawk and I work out every day. If I don't wash it, you can tell because my hair is so short. It's gross. I wash it every day but only use shampoo about half the time because it strips the minerals and stuff out of your hair.

    No way. I wash my hair like, maybe once a week. I actually prefer my hair when its gross.

    My hair gets pretty dry and I've been dealing with the same problem. I can probably get a way with washing it every day now, but in the winter it might be rough. If I'm nasty and sweaty I don't think I could avoid it but maybe just rinsing without shampoo/conditioner might be gentler and you will still feel clean

    I feel smelly if I don't wash my hair everyday. I sweat like a pig when I workout so I have to wash it right after.

    Nah, I don't. I barely sweat, though. Even when I'm super hydrated, I don't sweat much at all.

    No my hair would die. I don't work out super often though either but I can only wash my hair every 3rd day or so or the curls dry out too much.
