4 Ways To Protect Your Hair When Working Out

by | Jun 18, 2018

There’s nothing better than working up a sweat after a busy day, but what you probably don’t realise is that this often wreaks havoc on your hair. Maximise your workout routine to protect your locks from root to tip.

Purple Rain

If like us your hair-washing schedule relies on your gym routine, get the most out of your colour and opt for a purple shampoo. Swimmers you’ll want to write this down as chlorine strips the natural oils in your hair and weakens the hair fibres which can leave your hair feeling dry, full and rough. WH recommends TONI&GUY Purple Shampoo & Conditioner for Blonde Hair, the Shampoo is infused with violet dye to neutralise and revitalise the yellow and brassy tones of blonde hair, extending the life of your colour.

Go With The Flow

Work with not against the natural oils you sweat up in your gym sesh. Brush your hair from root to tip to distribute the oil and break up any congestion around your scalp.

Switch It Up

It pays to be picky with your hair ties. Look for hair ties that will still secure your top knot without being rough on your hair. We’re all for a slick high pony but switch it up and tie up your hair in different places so you don’t cause breakages in the same spot every time.

Maximise Your Warm up

Dry shampoo is integral to any gym bag but you should actually apply it pre-workout as no dry shampoo is strong enough to tame those sweaty tendrils after a big sesh. Treat it like your warm up, using dry shampoo pre-workout will help prevent excess moisture from saturating your whole head.
