What do you do when you get all sweaty from working out? I’ve been trying to go every other day washing my hair… But when I go running and it’s humid out, I am sweating so much and my hair is drenched with sweat. There’s no way I can’t not wash my hair, is there some trick I’m missing or what do you do??

@legenwaitforitdary: unfortunately I haven’t found a solution to this either. I have tried dry shampoo and I still feel icky after. I can take a body shower but not washing my hair after a work out just doesn’t feel right… Im going to follow this so I can see what others do. Sorry I wasn’t more help :

I don’t need to wash it everyday because even if I do workout, I don’t sweat like crazy. If I were you and did, I would wash my hair every day. I think the people who don’t shower everyday do so because they don’t have a good enough reason to do it.
If I’m in a jam though and need clean hair sort of, I use a dry shampoo. Or slicked back ponytail.

What do you do with your hair when you work out? I tie mine up in a tight bun, so it doesn’t really get sweaty. My bangs get the worst of it, so I make sure to carefully soap them up when I wash my face in the shower. Then again, I have noticed that some people’s heads seem to sweat a lot more than mine does. My face will sweat a lot, but my actual scalp doesn’t seem to … so maybe I’m just lucky there. I often don’t wash my hair after working out and it’s just been fine!

I use dry shampoo in between washing, but if I’m heavily working out and my hair gets really sweaty then I have to just wash it.

@legenwaitforitdary: And if you use dry shampoo, read the instructions and follow them exactly. Including the shaking the can between each spray, spraying a certain amount of centimeters away from your head, and waiting the recommended time before brushing it through your hair.

I ALWAYS wash my hair after working out, but lately I’ve started skipping it on non-workout days. The workouts I do involve not only my sweat but the sweat of half the people in my class, so skipping washing any part of my body is so not happening.

I don’t wash my hair every day, usually if I work out and get sweaty and don’t want to wash my hair I just get it wet and do the washing motions with out shampoo and then condition and its fine.

@iarebridezilla: I usually put it up in a pony tail.. Maybe I should try a bun? The actual ponytail doesnt get sweaty but pretty much the entire top of my head and forehead are super sweaty … I wish I could get away with not washing it

After I workout I wash my hair but don’t use shampoo. That way I can get rid of the perspiration but avoid using shampoo too many times per week which can be drying. Perspiration is just salt and water, not oil. You don’t need shampoo to get rid of it.

Do you run everyday? If not try and schedule your runs for days you know you are going to shower.
I wash my hair twice a week. It took me quite a while to stretch it out that long. I use baby powder on days I don’t shower to absorb the grease. Also, some days I just have to pull it back and not care what it looks like. I usually look at my week and figure out what days I need to look my best and when I can get away with looking like a scrub. I take my haircare routine very seriously 🙂

Yeah I can’t deal with this either. When I work out I always end up washing my hair, dry shampoo just doesn’t cut it.
Since my hair is pretty long I just lather my scalp area, so at least the ends aren’t getting a full wash every day.

Dry shampoo. Ojon from Sephora is really good, no residue.
