How often do you wash your hair?

Post by CarlaAR on 24th February 2011, 8:57 pm

I've been on a two day a week schedule (if time permits) when it comes to washing my hair due to my workout schedule. I'm on day 3 since I last washed my hair and its feeling pretty gross and itchy already. I would rather not wash my hair so often due to time and also the fact that I'm in protective style mode (buns) until the weather warms up a bit. During the summer when I do a lot of wash-n-gos, its not such a big deal.

If you workout on a regular basis, how often do you workout and wash your hair? It could be shampoo or co-washes.

Wow now I have proof that I am lazy. I work out at least twice a week and I only wash my hair once a week.

I'm at the gym 4x and I wash once per week as well. I sweat a ridiculous amount in my weekly spin class, so I'll usually do a water rinse on that night.

A water rinse counts! I may start doing that in addition to the co-washes and shampoos...

I work out 3-4 times a week and wash once a week. In the summer it seems that I co-wash more often or do a water rinse.

I work out 4-5 days a week and co-wash every two-three days. It mostly depends on how "eww" my hair feels. Some days after a run or intense step class, I HAVE to co-wash. Others, not so much.

I work out 4-5 times a week and co wash my hair once a week. I usually twist my hair and put on a cotton scarf before I work out so my hair won't frizz up badly.

I workout 3-4 days a week and I only wash or cowash once a week. In the winter months its too cold to deal with my hair frequently so once a week will suffice.

I work out 4-5 days a week and only wash my hair once a week. I don't have the time or energy to do more. However, I have seb. derm., so if my scalp is flaring up, I'll wash every 2 to 3 days.

Thank you everyone for your responses! I was afraid that the sweat would dry my hair out if I don't wash it more often, but I think the JBCO oiling on my scalp is helping.
