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
