Hey guys I exercise everyday and sweat like a crazy person to the point my hair looks like I'm from a pool. I feel icky about sweat so i remove it by letting my hair run under the water everyday. I only co wash twice a week. Please give me a regimen for naturals who exercise
This is a question we got from one of our readers. To answer for naturals who exercise a lot
If your hair is long try and put your hair in a loose bun at the top of your head and wear a sweatband.
If you are rocking a twist/braid out again put your hair in a loose bun at the top of your head and wear a sweatband,if you feel you sweat too much rinse your hair with plain water after your workout, use some holding cream or shea butter retwist/braid your hair then release in the morning
Another alternative is to use dry shampoo, ORS have a dry shampoo for about Kshs 400 which you can use on your scalp. This could be an option and I think it can be used every other day
Should you wish to cleanse your scalp after your workout, try mixing water, conditioner and 4-6 drops of teatree oil in a spray bottle and spraying your scalp. The tea tree has lots of antibacterial properties which will attack any that are found on your scalp after sweating
You can twist your hair as a protective style for a week, then just rinse your hair as soon as you are out of the gym. You can then dry the twists and seal the moisture in with a butter or oil
