If you often complain about how disastrous your hair looks post-workout, we are here to help. Below are five tips that will keep your hair looking great even after an intense sweat sesh!
- 01. Prepare before the session
- 02. Keep hair off your face
- 03. Turn it into a great hairstyle
- 04. Rinse your bangs
- 05. Go for a sleek ponytail
01. Prepare before the session
Whether you visit the gym or prefer working out at home, prepare your hair before the workout session so you don’t have to put in a lot of effort later. An easy way to do this is by spraying a dry shampoo like the Dove Fresh & Floral Dry Shampoo on your scalp, especially around the hairline. This will soak up the sweat and prevent your hair from becoming a sticky mess.
02. Keep hair off your face
Opt for a hairstyle that keeps hair off your face. Throw your hair into a top knot and secure it with an elastic. If you have long hair, braid it and then tie it into a bun. This will prevent your hair from getting that ugly dent, instead you will get effortless waves.
03. Turn it into a great hairstyle
Another way to turn sweaty hair into a great hairstyle is to spritz some sea salt spray. It’s a great way to get those beachy waves in minutes. After spraying the product, tilt your head and give your tresses a good scrunch.
04. Rinse your bangs
If you have bangs, chances are you spend a lot of time post workout trying to get your hair in place. Here’s a trick that will save you a lot of time. Rinse your bangs or short hair around the face after the workout session, then blow dry using the cool setting to make it look fresh.
05. Go for a sleek ponytail
If your hair is dripping with sweat, the above mentioned tips are not going to work. However, you can save time by not having to restyle it completely. Give your blow dryer a break and do this instead. After rinsing your hair, apply a little styling gel to your hair and tie a low, tight ponytail.
