A vigorous workout can leave your drenched with sweat from head to toe. One study revealed that 2 out of 5 American women skip a cardio session because they don’t want to mess up their hair. But sweaty, sticky strands shouldn’t get in the way of your fitness goals.
There are steps you can take to ensure that your hair stays polished no matter how sweaty you end up getting. Here are a few tips to help preserve your Westminster Colorado hairstyle while working out.
Wear your hair up
Pull your hair up into a bun or a high pony tail before working out to keep your hair off of your face and neck. Plus, your locks won’t cling to your sweaty skin during and after your Colorado work out.
Invest in a good quality blow-dryer
If your hair looks sweaty and dishevelled after workout, then you might want to invest in a good quality hair dryer. Nothing will tame your Westminster mane better than a steady stream of hot air. Flip your head over and give your hair a blast with a blow-dyer post workout. Be sure to blow-dry your hair using a cool setting.
Use dry shampoo
If you are a heavy sweater, then powder- based dry shampoo will be your new BFF. This is better in absorbing oil and sweat. Unlike its aerosol counterpart, it doesn’t dry out your hair. Use dry shampoo before you exercise to prevent moisture from transferring from your scalp to your hair. Then, apply a few spritzes of dry shampoo post workout and shake out your strands. This will help get rid of excess oil and sweat from your scalp and leave your hair looking and smelling fresh.
Choose your workout wisely
Not all workouts have to leave you drenched in sweat. If you just had your hair done, you might want to start with low impact exercises such as brisk walking, strength training, pilates or yoga. Hold off on sweat-inducing exercises until you’re ready to get your hair wet. You wouldn’t want to blow that blowout while working out at the gym.
