So Fresh, So Clean, So Sporty (and Functional!): Adidas 3 Hair & Body Wash

Okay, so Adidas 3 Hair & Body Wash is technically for dudes. But girls get sweaty and stinky, too! And we appreciate two-in-one products that keep our gym bags from being too overstuffed. Am I right, or am I right? So when Adidas asked if we wanted to try its new line of advanced formulas that were created with the help of athletes, we were more than game to suds up. Even if they are made for guys.

These Adidas hair and body washes come in three scents: Extra Fresh, After Sport and Active Start. To help pamper the inner athlete in you, each have mint extract, protein and pro-vitamin B5 added and are said to leave both your skin and your hair revitalized and rehydrated. A pretty tall order for a girl, no?

Well, I used each of these a number of times, and generally, I liked them. Extra Fresh was by far my favorite scent. The mintiest of all, it was the most gender-neutral and least strong-smelling variety of the three. After Sport was my second favorite, with another gender-neutral smell that was pretty refreshing and almost floral, in my opinion (don’t tell the boys). Pulling up the rear in the sniff department was Active Start. It smelled the most dudely of all and had the strongest smell of all.

Personal preference of smell aside, all of these do the hair-and-body-washing job well. Sure, they’re not as luxurious and moisturizing as your usual body wash and shampoo (and you will need conditioner if you are prone to dry or frizzy hair like I am), but they are refreshing—and they somehow feel more athletic. The mint in each of them invigorates as it cools you down, which sounds like an oxymoron but is actually true. While I wouldn’t want to use it every time I took a shower, for the days that you need to shower at the gym or get really, really sweaty it’s a great product to use. It’s also freakin’ fantastic to only have to bring one bottle in the shower with you (minus the conditioner, I guess) in the gym locker room. So, don’t let the “for men” name scare you. We ladies should totally take advantage of the convenience of these hair and body washes!

Now tell us: are there are dude products you use? I know razors are a common one. We’d love to hear about your manly—or not so manly—finds! Tell us in the comments below, and we’ll choose five lucky U.S. readers in about a week to win a set of these! —Jenn
