  • sweating with an up-do

     

    I practice Bikram yoga and recently put my hair up in a style to keep from having to do it everyday. You sweat tremendously during this type of yoga. I was wondering for the women who workout, and have done it with their locs styled in an up-do (or a stly you don't want to take down and put back everyday), do you rinse with it up or just let it dry after your workout and maintain a less frequent wash schedule without issues with mildew or odor?

    Thanks,
    NappsGalore

    You would be best off rinsing or washing it off after each session. You don't want all that sweat sitting on your scalp and contributing to build-up. And your locs will love the extra water as a bonus

    I used to practice Bikram regularly (several days a week), and I rinsed my hair after every session. I never styled it because it was just going to get sweated out and messy and then washed later anyway. I either wore my locks loose or tied them back.

    It was just easier.

    Thanks for the suggestions ladies. Dayna, are/were you freeforming then. The reason I put my hair into an 'up do' was I don't want to have to retwist every time I rinse. I try to practice 4-5 times a week.

    Yes, I was freeforming at the time, and I am now.

    Is freeforming an option for you, NappsGalore? It would eliminate any worry about having to retwist so often, allowing you to rinse/wash with abandon! Ahhhhhh!

    i believe there are some oils that have cleaning properties, such as tea tree oil and jojoba. perhaps a spritz would do?

    I also work out 4-5 times a week and also have my locs in an updo for that very reason. I tried rinsing after every session but my locs would be dry after that. Now,after a work out i let my locs dry and spritz then with my tea-tree and EVOO spritz and wash them thoroughly at the weekend. I just couldn't be bothered with almost daily rinses. it works for some, but it wasn't for me
