    I'm starting to do light exercises before I go to office. There is barely any sweat and I don't wash hair except 1 to 2 times a week.

    Now I plan to add cardio exercise, which will create lot of sweat.

    Should I wash hair everyday to clean sweaty scalp because sweaty scalp is not health? But washing hair every day is not healthy?

    What to do? Should I oil my hair BEFORE exercise, then after exercise it is safe to wash.

    Please advise.

    I still do 2/3 times a week. I apply a leave in conditioner to my sweat soaked hair and dry it with a towel on other days. My hair gets dry and dehydrated if I wash daily.

    Hello Laks,

    Leave-in conditioner sounds good.

    I think you should wash it after doing cardio. Like Laks mentioned, a conditioner is really good. Also you can use 1-2 twice a week some oil and leve it in over night.

    Yes, night before I wash I just soak my hair and scalp in olive oil. Then I condition with 50% conditioner, 50% amla oil

    My cardio vascular exercise is gardening. I still only wash my hair every 3 days. After gardening I use a damp facecloth to wipe my scalp. Then leave hair to air dry. This works well and removes any sweaty smell. My routine is very simple. Every 3 days shampoo & condition with Australian Tea Tree. One week every six weeks use Pro Naturals Hair Repair System. After every shampoo use Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil leave in treatment. Hair (70 years old) is in great condition, white/grey, shiny, full of body and no damage even though I use a hair dryer and hair styling iron. I use a Salon Series Ultralight Prof Ionic hair dryer and a G3 Salon Pro hair styling iron.

    Wash your hair every alternate day or after every two days.
