DLers who work out every day

Or almost every day: how often do you shampoo your hair?

by Anonymousreply 26June 17, 2024 7:40 PM

Rinse immediately in shower to get sweat and dirt out. Shampoo and condition as needed. Needs vary by hair type/thickness.

Also, you know you need a shampoo when your hair feels overly greasy to the point where you'd think it is holding dirt and smells. The oil on your hair themselves aren't bad, it's the dirt and impurities that gets stuck in that oil. That's why it's important to rinse instead of using shampoo to strip your hair of natural oils.

I am a sweaty betty, so I have to shampoo pretty much every time post gym otherwise my head stinks. I use a gentle, SLS-free brand, in the hopes it’s not too stripping. Even if I just wash with conditioner, when it dries, I can still smell the sweat.

If it’s a mediocre workout or my hair early fries on the way home, I can sometimes get away with using dry shampoo.

When my hair was longer, almost shoulder length, it was less of an issue because I presume the perspiration went down the length of the hair shaft and partially evaporated off. But post chemo my hair is short and it’s even more damp.

It’s urban air pollution that has me washing daily.

Of course, I also find heavy smoking of high-stink weed and tobacco compliments my workouts tremendously.

I too shampoo after using public transport, r4.

My personal trainer has an impressive mop of curls which he told me he only shampoos weekly using the “curly girl method”. He also claims it doesn’t smell. I agree with him, but I am lying, because he’s a nice dude and has improved my fitness substantially.

You should shampoo your heads every day, pigs.

On my HEAD?

I don’t have hair on my head. Makes things a little easier.

People who don't bath and wash their hair are slobs and skanks, trainers are not someone to take advice from, they aren't really doing anything, just playing around pretending,

R8/9 do bald folks shampoo their scalps? Or do you use regular facial cleanser?

by Anonymousreply 11June 16, 2024 2:14 PM

I shampoo every day.

R1, your hair varies?

by Anonymousreply 13June 16, 2024 2:56 PM

Daily makes no sense; you’d strip the oils away.

I work out every day and use shampoo every second or third day, depending.

Rinsing your hair in the shower does a sufficient job in between.

Rinse with clean water after a workout, shampoo once a week.

Yes r24, let's get our filthy habits from Today.com, fucking bathe every fucking day, YOU FUCKING STINK, has society sunk to the lowest level, you're humans not animals, it is not acceptable you filthy POS.

Daily. If I don't wash my hair every day, it turns into a greasy mess.

by Anonymousreply 17June 17, 2024 2:39 PM

I don’t think it’s necessary, or even advisable, for most people to shampoo everyday. Its a combination of how active you are, how much oil your scalp produces, and the texture of your hair which determines this.

It should also be said that most people, men with shorter hair use too much shampoo. Like with laundry detergents, many people think more is better which is not the case. For most short hairstyles, a dime to quarter sized amount of shampoo is correct.

The type of shampoo and conditioner you use plays a big role as well. Products that contain sulfates and silicones are harsher on your hair, and people with curlier hair types would benefit from buying products which don’t contain these ingredients.

How lucky you all are to have hair to wash.

by Anonymousreply 19June 17, 2024 3:10 PM

Every morning for work. Shampoo/conditioner.

A second time after working out in the evening, before bed.

I'll take a third shower/shampoo on wierd days or weekends where I've sweated again after needing to be cleaned up for an event.

Stinky BO or hair is gross, and yes--if you're not cleaning with soap regularly you stink even if you can't smell it anymore.

As if there has ever been anyone on DL who works out every day.

Washing your hair every day can lead to hair loss. You can condition every day, but wash once a week

by Anonymousreply 22June 17, 2024 5:16 PM

If your head sweats you need to shampoo it.

Use something conditioning if you're worried about "stripping the oil" from you scalp which is utter nonsense anyway. This doesn't determine the health of your hair or scalp. Who wants to walk around with smelly grease head? I smell this on fraus who wash their hair once a week and think they're doing themselves a favour. Even though they shower daily the smell of their dirty hair is overwhelming. It makes me gag. Don't be that person.

If you must, wash it every other day, but no less than that. On non wash days use J&J pure corn starch with aloe on your roots to absorb the extra oil. Do not use dry shampoo as it contains benzene which is known to be cancerous.
