3 tips to avoid having to wash your hair immediately after a sweaty workout

It is a challenge for anyone who sports several times a week:how do you keep your hair clean without having to wash your hair every day? After all, you don't want to have to plan your workouts around your washes, right? That's why we've collected three tips for you that can help you not have to wash your hair immediately after a sweaty workout, but you can still walk around with a clean, well-groomed head of hair. Sounds good, right?

1. Wear your hair in a convenient way

To avoid having to wash your hair right after you exercise, it's important to look at the texture of your hair. Do you have curls? Then you don't want to crush them. At the same time, you also want to wear your hair away from your face while exercising. Pin sections back with bobby pins or use a satin hair tie to keep it out of your face. Do not use elastic hair bows, because that can cause your hair to break faster and leave marks in your hair if it has been too tight. It is also useful to braid your hair during exercise, then you can remove the braids as soon as your hair has dried. Do you have very straight hair? Then you can also opt for a ponytail, as long as you keep the hair together with a satin elastic, because that prevents friction. Another tip to prevent the spread of sweat is to wear a scarf around your hair. You can also wear a headband, because it can keep your hair in place and prevent your hairline from becoming frizzy.

2. Do not wash your hair too often

Washing your hair too often can cause your hair to lose its natural oils. Textured hair tends to be dry on its own, so washing more often will only make it dry faster. If you often exercise, you naturally suffer from sweaty hair. But how often you should wash it depends on the amount of oil you produce when you sweat, which varies from person to person. A good guideline is to shampoo your hair no more than twice a week, but rinse your hair well after a workout with only water. That should last you until your next shampoo. In the meantime, dry shampoo is your best friend!

3. Use the right hair care products

Whether you've just washed your hair or need a post-workout boost, what you care for is crucial. It is of course a process to find the care that best suits your hair, but the clue often lies in a good conditioner or a moisturizing product. For example, think of a leave-in conditioner or a hair oil that can ensure that your hair remains hydrated. Other ingredients that can give your hair a boost are rose oils, castor oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil and argan oil – oils are essential for strong and healthy hair. Just make sure that you do not use oil too much and too often, otherwise too much residue will remain in your hair and your hair will become very heavy.
