I'm a haircare pro and you should NEVER wash your hair after getting sweaty – my tip will make it look loads healthier | The Sun

A HAIRCARE pro has revealed why you should NEVER wash your hair after getting sweaty – and how often you really should be cleansing your locks. 

Jonathan Van Ness suggested that you’re washing away ‘Mother Nature’s conditioner’ if you shampoo every time you sweat – and that this could be affecting your hair’s texture. 

Instead, he suggested blow drying it into your hair for healthier, happier locks. 

Known online as @jvn_official, the hairstylist, and one of the hosts of Netflix’s Queer Eye, regularly shares haircare tips with his 932,200 followers. 

In a new TikTok reel, he said: “Another thing that will not bring out the most in anyone’s texture is over washing. 

“You want to aim to wash your hair about two to four times a week.
