He was right.
I shower after every workout. I usually rinse out and condition my hair. I make exceptions if I know I'll be training again that day (morning run and evening CrossFit), going to the beach or pool (my hair is going to get gross anyway), or for some crazy reason I'm somewhere where I don't sweat (Granby, Colorado.) I only shampoo two or three times a week and I have noticed a difference in my split ends and the texture of my hair.
I'm fortunate that I have a lot of hair and it's pretty thick. I can get away with some extra oil a lot longer than someone with thinner, finer hair would. A deep side part ponytail is my go-to for hair that's pushing the boundaries of cleanliness. I try to avoid the messy bun because dirty, messy hair screams "I'm hungover" instead of of "effortless chic."
A fitness addiction can wreck havoc on your looks - bacne, sports bra tans, scraped up shins - but you can save your hair by ditching your shampoo a few times a week. There's a so-called "no poo movement" but I don't trust those people. You need to wash your damn hair eventually.
