ok I'm new here and I have a question. Im bi-racial and i have 3b type hair. I workout a lot so I feel the need to wash my hair everyday but its seriously taking a toll on my hair by drying it out to the point its breaking a bit
any suggestions as to what i can do to clean my hair without washing it or good shampoos or conditioners to use everyday?

I got very dry hair too and I work out a lot too. I do CO-wash nearly everyday, I havn't used shampoo since more than one month, it's no problem at all to just wash with condi. Give it a try!

Deva Curl or Deva Care No Poo can be used every day! They're cowashes that really get your hair CLEAN with stuff like peppermint oil. Just rub the scalp (no need to clean the length of your beautiful tresses), work some conditioner through your length, and you're good to go!

I cleanse daily because of a very intense workout schedule. I rotate between straight conditioner co-washing (usually VO5), cleansing conditioner (Deva No-Poo or Curl Junkie Daily Fix), and a very gentle low-poo (Shea Moisture Moisture Retention is a great choice), depending on how my hair feels at the time. I haven't had any issues from this. Cleansing schedules completely vary from person to person and you need to do what's going to work best for you and your hair. The biggest thing to keep in mind about CG is that it's not about following a set of hard and fast rules as much as it's about learning how to listen to what your hair wants and treat it with the TLC is needs to look and feel it's best.

You are beautiful!
yes this is something I have found to be helpful! I love dry shampoo and I love how it give it that extra volume! Thanks hun!
That is something I am definitely looking into thanks!
Definitely dry shampoo like Batiste, or a sulphate free shampoo/ cleansing conditioner at pH 4.5 to 5.5 which respects both skin and hair. Komaza Care Moja shampoo or As I Am coconut co-wash are both the right pH.

The other thing worth doing is spending as little time under running water as possible, so use a leave in instead of a rinse out conditioner, wear a shower cap for part of your shower. Washing flushes out structural proteins and also washes off the fatty cuticle glue - you can help patch repair this with ceramides, hydrolysed protein and panthenol. If you have porous hair overnight coconut oil soaks on dry hair can reduce porosity and thus hygral fatigue (water damage).
