Okay, so we've spent hours googling on how to care for your hair, wash it 1-2 times per week, use serums and caring products, brush oil away from the roots regularly. This all makes sense BUT how do we apply these rules if we're active and find ourselves sweating regularly?
These tips are going to go against almost every grain in your body but we promise if you follow them, they will work!
1. Invest in some silk scrunchies! Silk scrunchies prevent friction and hair breakage and are the perfect way to wear your hair up during a workout! Our silk Scrunchie's come in 3x colours and are perfect for the everyday workout. Slip some scrunchies into your hair and your hair will thank you later.
2. Don't wash your hair after every workout. This one will feel difficult, but we recommend washing your hair 1-2 times per week even when you workout daily. Okay so how can you do that without looking like a drowned rat?
- After your workout, we recommend putting your hair into a loose up-do or plaiting it so that your hair can dry from the sweat.
- When you shower - put that hair into a cap and don't wash it! (If your hair is extra greasy you can wash the roots only while keeping the cap on - don't touch the ends).
- After you've showered, lightly blow-dry (on medium to cool heat only) the scalp dry so that the sweat is all dried. Think of this like a salt-water spray, who doesn't love salty waves?
- Then apply dry shampoo to the roots and massage in.
- Once that has been massaged in, take your boar bristle brush and brush the dry shampoo away from the roots to prevent build-up at the hair follicle.
- Brush the ends of your hair with your paddle brush and you are done!
3. Use an oil-based mask before showering for an added benefit! We recommend coconut oil or EVOO (extra virgin olive oil).
