I'm sorry but when my hair is soaked with sweat I cannot just rinse.. disgusting..
Just use a mild natural shampoo like Aubrey, Jason, and there are some others .. Kenra makes one but I can't remember the name now.
i've only had a bkt for less than a month now but found out this weekend if I dry naturally it looks as good as when I blow dry - cool beans. TR never did that!
When I had natural curls and peroxide blonde hair I always washed once a day and conditioned twice.
Only time I will skip a shampoo is if I dont' work out I might skip a day there. But never will I let my hair become soaked with sweat and just rinse it out.
Actually the posts I'm seeing is some people here that almost never wash their hair are having theirs wear off very quickly. I'm wondering if your natural oils and the salt from sweat and residue frome the environment are eating away at the bkt : )
Anyway, I also rinse with cool/cold water to seal the cuticle after the conditioner and use some styling products/serums to coat the hair as well.
We'll see how long it lasts. I just personally cannot imagine going to work with unwashed hair after a big sweat down the day before.
