As a fitness lover, you do good things to your body and try to avoid bad things in order to achieve maximum results. The same principle should also be applied to your hair. This article will give you an idea on what and what not to do to keep your hair in great shape after workout.
Drop the towel
Avoid wrapping your hair in a towel after you shower as this may cause frizz. Also, you shouldn’t rub your hair with a towel as it may cause damage and breakage. If you can’t kick the habit of using a towel, we suggest using a micro fiber one to squeeze out all the excess water.
Before adding any hair product, make sure that your hair is a bit dry. This way, your hair may absorb all those wonderful products, giving you magazine worthy hair.
Brush your hair before shampooing
Brushing your hair will help exfoliate your scalp and allow the natural oil to spread throughout your hair. If you have tangles, make sure to start from the ends and work your way up before brushing your hair from scalp to ends.
By brushing your hair before shampooing, you can be sure that all the tangles and knots are out. This will prevent you from tearing through your hair while it is wet, which is its most fragile state.
Avoid buying cheap hair products
The hair products you see in drugstores and groceries are not all the same. Some contain water, waxes, fillers and less quality ingredients. If you are to observe, your hair feels amazing after leaving the salon. This is mainly because they are using top quality products on you. Also, it is best to know your hair type and listen to what your stylist recommends.
While dry shampoo is mostly used in between shampoos to restore body and absorb excess oil, it can also be used on the same day you shampoo and styled your hair. This is also a great treatment after a hard workout as it creates a barrier from those oil debris and little dirt that zap all the body out of your hair.
