If you have been following along with this blog, we have been talking a lot about our Detangling Co-Wash and how to care for your hair after the gym. These two go hand in hand, as co-washing is the perfect solution for your sweaty, after-gym hair.
At the end of every workout, the question that always arises is: “What am I going to do with my hair now?” Sweaty hair is not a good look, but washing your hair isn't always the best solution, especially daily. Here are a few tips to help you take care of your hair after the gym.
1. Don't Be Scared to Sweat
Many naturalistas are afraid to sweat in fear that their roots will frizz up and their hairstyle will get messed up. Don't let the fear sweat mess up your workout. Girl, get that workout on!
2. Skip The Shampoo and.... #Cowashandslay
Yes, girl, skip that shampoo. If you frequent the gym on a regular basis and you are shampooing your hair each time, it will ultimately lead to your hair being dried out. When you work out a lot, your hair can get really dry from your workout session. You can co-wash in between your shampoo sessions.
3. Use a Leave-In Conditioner
After you wash your hair, make sure to use a leave-in conditioner. This will help you prep your hairstyle and also seal the moisture into your hair strands.
4. Deep Condition Weekly
Your hair needs TLC, so make sure that you are regularly deep conditioning your hair. Our Babassu and Mint Deep Conditioner is perfect for keeping your strands strong and healthy. Try deep conditioning with steam also — this will really help to lock the moisture into your hair strands.
5. Wear Protective Styles
Wearing protective styles to the gym will help you keep your hair from getting too messy. Styles like twists and braids are great for the gym, because they can easily be taken down for washing.
During the Fall, many women decide to wear protective styles for themselves and their daughters. With busy schedules for moms and their kids, this could be a great route to take to avoid daily hair styling. The thing about protective styles is, if you don’t take good care of your hair while wearing them, it’s not serving the purpose.
