Pre-workout Regular:

  • The application of a light-weight shampoo on your scalp will definitely help to absorb oils and perspiration as you work out. Opt for a refreshing formulation which subtly promotes grip and texturing whilst balance your own scalp’s moisture levels at the same time.
  • After the application of dry shampoo, then continue to put some lightweight hair oil onto the ends of the hair to moisturize and stop hair breakage as well as de-frizz hair strands when you are sweating.
  • It is advisable to secure and hold your hair firmly in a protective bun to keep your hair strands away from the sweat and maintain your hairstyle without ruining it. To do so, you may utilize a silk scrunchie to accumulate and hold all your hair into a high ponytail. Wrap your ponytail around the bottom of the hairband and fasten it firmly with bobby pins. Insert a silk headband to keep those short pieces of hair out of your face while you are exercising.


Post-workout Routine:

  • Blow dry your hair roots to remove dampness and pass over any frizzy hair strands using your flat iron. Add a spritz of dry shampoo for soaking up any remaining oiliness and also to enhance the volume of hair.
  • Add a odor mist spray refresh and further prolong your hairstyle if your blow out is already on its 3rd of 4th day.
  • If all else fails, embrace and accept the wave by styling the frizzy sections of the hair using a hair wand. Add a texturizing, soft-hold hairspray for grip with voluminous motion. Decide on a spray which can be readily brushed out without leaving any hairspray residue or flakes.
