How to take care of your hair when going to the gym

While getting in a good sweat is excellent for our health, we’re sure that many of you, were at some point put off by the idea of getting your hair all sweaty and having to wash it after a workout. If gymming during your lunch break or even on evenings when you have plans can sometimes leave you feeling like you’d much rather skip the workout altogether, then this post is for you! Read more about our top tips from going from sweaty to ready in an instant.


Get out your dry shampoo

Even though applying your dry shampoo after your session might make the most sense, it actually helps to spritz your hair with dry shampoo before you start gymming.


This way, the product soaks up grease and sweat as soon as you start sweating so that your hair is far less oily after your workout. We love the BioSilk Silk Therapy Dry Clean Shampoo since it is formulated for all hair types, absorbs excess odour and easily eliminates oils.



Blow-dry your hair
While it might seem odd to blow-dry hair that is not washed, this trick works wonders if you need to be out of the gym in record time. Simply comb your hair before applying a luxurious blow-dry cream like the CHI Luxury Black Seed Oil Blow-Dry Cream which is a lightweight styling cream that creates sleek and smooth styles with ease.
It is suitable for all hair types and helps to eliminate frizz and flyaways while helping hair resist humidity and thermal styling damage.


After generously applying the product from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair, flip your head upside down and give it a quick dry with the CHI Deep Brilliance Hair Dryer.
We love this dryer since it can work on all hair types, especially short and textured hair. It makes drying time quick and quiet and boasts an air concentrating nozzle that helps to direct airflow for faster styling.


Braid your hair

By braiding your hair into sections before your workout, you not only keep the hair out of your face but you stop sweat and oils from travelling all the way to the ends of your hair, making your hair more greasy. We also love braids since the heat emitted from your scalp gently curl your hair which makes this a great style to do at the gym if you’re about to go out for drinks with friends!


Add some scent
If you’re worried about your hair giving off that tell-tale gym smell, then make sure to keep a bottle of hair-perfume in your bag for a quick pick up. We love the luxurious Balmain Silk Perfume which provides a perfect summery scent for your hair. It is enriched with argan and silk which together, help to soften and protect the hair.


Going swimming?
While your hair might not be sweaty, swimming without a cap on can leave you with dry and dehydrated locks. Our top tip after swimming is to gently brush hair to get rid of knots before applying a nourishing product like the CHI Luxury Black Seed Oil Leave-in-Conditioner.
This lightweight conditioner leaves your hair feeling soft and healthy in an instant. Simply apply from the mid-lengths to the tip of your hair and leave it in until you can properly wash your hair. This product is great at adding moisture back into your hair while prevents frizz and flyaways. It also adds a beautiful shine and smells amazing!
