Cleansing after a workout?

I have, at the age of 31, finally decided to embrace the curl. I have been given SO much advice from curly friends. Apparently, using a brush was bad? As is washing daily? Using a normal bath towel?

I have my very first hair appointment this weekend with someone who works at a salon that comes highly recommended for curlies. I'm SO excited.

That said, I was all about the idea of phasing out washing every day...till I remembered I tend to work out 3-5 times a week. I'm totally gross afterward - and my scalp (though, I admit, maybe not my hair), needs washed.

So what should I do that will keep me from getting zits on my scalp (it has totally happened) and at the same time keep my hair from being horribly dried out?

Help please!
Cleansing hair daily is not a problem if you are using the right products for your hair. I cleansed my hair pretty much daily before CG and have continued to do so for the 11 months that I've followed CG (modified in my case because of occasional sulfate and silicone use).
There's a big difference between washing your hair with a harsh sulfate shampoo every day and washing your hair with conditioner (regular or cleansing), or a gentle sulfate-free shampoo. There are quite of us floating around who do still cleanse daily for various reasons. For me it's because I do martial arts and train 3-5 days a week for up to 3 hours a day. There is no refresher spray or dry shampoo in the world that would make me feel comfortable with not cleansing my hair after that kind of workout. Just make sure that you're using enough moisture in your routine and you should be fine.

Thanks so much! I think I'll just express my concerns to the stylist about it and see what she says!
Please keep us posted with what she says. I normally co-wash every other day, but I'm doing Insanity & it lives up to its name. I'm totally drenched head to toe after the workout & feel like I need to need my hair daily.
