Getting into a daily workout routine is something to be incredibly proud of! It’s certainly not an easy routine to get into so kudos to you. Of course one of the downsides to working out daily is dealing with gym hair. We often discuss the toll washing your hair daily can take on your locks. That being said, we realize that can leave a lot up for confusion. You want your hair to look and feel great, but you also want to workout daily. What’s a woman to do? We’ve got you covered (as always) with hair care that compliments daily workouts so you don’t have to choose cute hair over your workout (or vice versa).
Make Dry Shampoo Your Best Friend
Oh dry shampoo, it will forever hold a special place in our hearts. It’s the perfect hair care product to help you get that freshly washed look in between washes. Dry shampoo is also the perfect product to give your hair a little boost after your workout. You already know that washing your hair daily isn’t so great on your hair, which is why dry shampoo is a great alternative. Dry shampoo helps to soak up excess oil in our hair, along with sweat that may have been produced during your workout. The key is to get the product applied primarily to the roots of your hair and is evenly distributed.
Co-washing is a new hair washing technique that allows you to feel like you’ve washed your hair and really gotten rid of the sweat from your hair after your workouts but doesn’t put the same stress a full wash does. Co-wash is essentially washing your hair but skipping the shampoo portion of the washing process. Shampoo is the product that tends to strip our hair of its natural oils and while shampoo is needed every once in a while when we fully wash our hair, co-washing is a technique a lot of daily workout ladies have begun to apply to their hair care routine to get the best of both worlds. If you’re not a fan of dry shampoo or you have a workout that the dry shampoo just isn’t going to cover for you, give co-washing a try. It’s great , too, because using just conditioning products provides your hair with a lot of moisture.
Yes, again with the conditioning! Sweating consistently with your daily workouts can cause your hair to become a bit dried out which is why using conditioning products in your hair care routine is essential. Incorporating a deep conditioning treatment into your weekly hair care routine is going to help your hair to recover after any stress that it may have been put through that week, causing any moisture to be eliminated from your locks, and repair any damage. Deep conditioning is a powerhouse at restoring moisture back into the hair.
