Im a runner!

So I have been a CG all of my life (and recently started really embracing it!) I am just leary of the shampoo-less routine. Im in training, so most days I run twice a day. I don't want a lot of sweaty nasty-ness build up on my head! Does the conditioner only thing not apply to me?

    I washed my hair once every 7-10 days while I was on crew. The trick is to just rinse really well, and really get a good head-rub in -- either with water or condish. No worries.

    I'm a runner too, and co-washing is just fine. I just make sure I massage my scalp really well and rinse well.

    Good luck with your training.

    Here's from a different perspective...

    Not only do I run/jog every once in a while, I get in our sauna at least 3 times a week and more if I can fit it in. I usually get in at night because I take my shower at night. A good rubbing each time and a co-wash about twice a week keeps build-up of sweat and other stuff off, not to mention the sauna opens up my pores and leaves me feeling refreshed after I give myself a nice scalp massage.:)

    CO is fine. As a swimmer, I was worried about the chemicals building up on my head, but all I have to do is CO to get everything out.
