Contact Sports and your Hair


by Jeffery Kufalk July 21, 2016

 

A question we routinely get as well as see online is whether a person can successfully be "NoPoo" if they are involved in sports.  Especially contact sports such as wrestling, or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

The biggest concern here is bacteria growing in your hair/scalp, either from you contacting mats & other people, or you passing bacteria onto others.  The sad reality is that water only just won't cut it when it comes to cleaning hair well enough that you and everyone else remains safe from bacteria being transmitted.  

Our recommendation to people involved in contact sports, but wanting to enjoy a NoPoo lifestyle, free from the harmful chemicals in shampoos, is to find SOME method of cleansing which involves a cleanser more than just water.  

Naturally, our NoPoo product is a perfect fit here, but if you're not sold on our product, PLEASE find something which you can use regularly and will remain gentle on your hair and scalp.  

Not only will your opponents appreciate you spreading around minimal bacteria, they will be thankful your hair smells so awesome! 

Love & Peace

-Jeff

A testimonial from one of our long-term customers who enjoys Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and ManeLine Hair Care:

Training Jiu Jitsu 3-4 times per week is brutal on my hair.  It gets ripped, pulled, knotted, stuck under people's knees, and gets the sweat of several different people on it.  Showering 2 times a day dries it out.  Before No Poo, I was using high quality shampoos and conditioners, but I ended up with soap residue on my scalp no matter how much I rinsed and I also needed at least a full cup of conditioner just to get the knots out.  I had my doubts about No Poo and its ability to condition my hair, but after the first few days the benefits became very apparent.  No more soap residue on my scalp, it was conditioning well and knots were easily untangled, and most importantly (especially with the sweat of 15 other people in the mix), my hair and scalp felt clean.
