You might not sweat as much as I do, but I do hope that you get in daily workouts. And because you’ll work up a sweat, your hair might feel like it’s been washed. Here are some ways to care for post-workout hair ? Here are some ideas for you to try out!
Change your shampoo. I’m sure you’re heard that sulfates in your shampoo are a no-no. And here is another reason- they interfere with sweat and your hair. So invest in a natural shampoo that is chemical and sulfate-free. I love Giovanni shampoo and conditioner. Sulfates cause dry, frizzy and split ends. Sulfate’s go by a few different names, so be sure to read the label carefully and do research before buying a product.
Take a day off. Believe it or not, shampooing your hair daily is not always a good thing. Especially if you work out a few times a day. After a workout, simply rinse your hair with water or opt for a co-wash. Washing your hair daily with shampoo will only add to the drying out of your hair. Hair has a built-in natural moisturizer so give it a break by simply rinsing. If your hair is feeling especially dry, read next tip.
Leave-in conditioner. If you have especially dry hair, a leave-in conditioner is a must for you. It will help nourish your hair while you’re sitting at your desk or out on a date. Think of a leave-in conditioner as lotion for very dry skin. Trust me, your dry hair will thank you. Also, a leave-in conditioner is a must if you swim a lot. The pool water will dry your hair out quicker than you can say another lap.
Dry Shampoo. This might just be your winning ticket for going from the gym to the office in seconds (okay, maybe not seconds, but you get the idea). A dry shampoo can help you look like you didn’t even break a sweat (although I personally dig the glow of a post-workout). A dry shampoo such as Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk will help revive your hair within minutes after applying. The oat milk is great for all scalp types- even you sensitive types.
Blowdry. Now you might have heard of this (crazy) tip, but blow drying sweaty hair actually works if you are in a pinch for time- and who isn’t? You might want to try out Yoshi’s Magic Water to help revive your sweaty hair and to help protect it from the heat of the hair dryer. Yoshi’s Magic Water is made with sage leaf and rosemary extract to help add shine, control frizz and give your hair a natural luster look. No more excuses for not being able to work out now that you have this secret product.
