Sweat it out: fitness & haircare
Trying to find balance between getting your sweat on and maintaining your hair style without having it frizz out, get oily and flat Or even stinky?
here’s some tips n tricks
Prior to starting your workout try pulling your hair in a loose but secure braid.
the high bun, which is most women’s fashion statement these days anyhow is a great go to as long as it’s not restricted and tied too tight.
fabric scrunchies are so fun and so more forgiving than tight elastic bands
YES elastic band damage is a thing

DONT rush to shampoo after each workout. This causes more stress on the hair and leads to overly dry frizzed - out hair. keep the rest of your hair well hydrated with a leave - in on the ends so wear and tear of buns N braids are minimal.
Davines Dede leave in mist is best for what I’m describing as it’s formulated with fine hair in mind, so those disheveled messy post workout buns can be untangled and combed with ease using this mist. It’s light leave on spray is a perfect gym bag pick for all hair types to keep frizz at bay.

for real, we all have natural oils that work synergistically with our skin and hair, and sometimes leaving well enough alone and not mucking about keeps a healthy balance.
a wide tooth comb where possible ( I just heard curly hair people whimper ) and give your scalp a gentle comb thru. Help your hair air dry as best possibe is indeed best.
Keep a sweat absorbing hair product on your gym bag or at home.
Davines hair refresher is by far my most cherished product for absorbing oils from scalp without adding any weight or build up to you hair.
