Post-Workout Hair Care Tips

It is essential to take care of your hair post-workout as well, here are some tips to help you do that:

Wash The Dirt Away

Refresh your strands by scheduling hair washes according to your workout sessions. Use a deep cleansing shampoo to get rid of all sweat, grime and dirt from the hair and scalp. As per Agnes Chen, you can clean it twice, keeping the temperature between lukewarm to cool. Then, use the conditioner and keep it for 3-5 minutes and rinse with cold water.

Use Ribbon Hair Ties Instead Of The Elastic Ones

Many people use an elastic hairband to tie up their hair, but that could lead to hair breakage and dents. It is better to loosen up the hair or using a soft hair tie that doesn't lead to these problems.

Avoid Blow Drying Your Hair

As much as people love blow-drying their hair to perfection, it could lead to some serious health problems. Ditch the hairdryer as it tends to dry up the hair and make them frizzy, detangle it and make it lose its shine over time. So, you can save some time to take care of your hair.
