Have you ever avoided the gym simply because you didn’t want to mess up your hair? This article that The Moxie Team found on The Bustle is for you!
Sometimes, beauty is more important than brawn. If you’ve ever ditched the gym because you just got back from the blow-dry bar, this is for you. Here’s how to not mess up your hair at the gym.
A french roll is an easy way to put your hair up, but know that it’s not a good ‘do for intense running or HIIT workouts. A french roll is the easiest crease-free hairstyle for the gym if you’re doing something low impacts like stretching, foam rolling, or yoga.
The best updo to do is a loose bun or a top-knot. A top knot bun would be my go-to as it is a modern look and will allow you to put it up loosely. This will eliminate any creases in the hair as you don’t necessarily need hairpins. All you need is a hair tie or even better, an invisibobble!
Get that hair up into a loose top-knot and pop on a headband. This will help absorb any perspiration. As soon as you finish, lightly go through the root with a clean towel to absorb and make sure you wait until the hair is not wet and start applying your products as needed.
Dry shampoo helps freshen up the roots after working out. Everyone will perspire during a workout, but using this product after will put back the volume at the roots. Sometimes dry shampoo can make strands appear dull, so reach for an illuminating product that promotes shine.
If you are not a fan of dry shampoo, try a texturing spray. This is similar to dry shampoo but not as powdery. It will also help soak up any moisture and put some oomph to that root area.
