Just like you, your hair moves a lot during a workout, so it requires some special styling and haircare tricks to protect it from damage. To be absolutely clear, your mane should never get in the way of how hard you exercise, just keep it in mind when styling before and after!
Move your ponytail
If you tend to wear your ponytail in the same place every time you work out, you may find there tends to be some breakage where the hair rubs against your hair tie. To stop this from happening, alternate between two or three different ponytail locations.
Try some different hairstyles
In a similar vein, it's a good idea to change up your workout hairstyles regularly for the same reason. Try to switch between ponies, buns and braids to avoid stressing your strands out for too long in any one place.
Embrace the scrunchie
Instead of rubber bands or synthetic hair ties that can damage the hair shaft, make sure you're only using headbands and hair ties that are designed specifically NOT to damage your hair as you work out. Perhaps surprisingly, scrunchies are super gentle on your hair and they look awesome.
Use the right shampoo
When you're washing your hair really often, it's important to use a shampoo that's gentle on both your scalp and your strands to avoid stripping away essential oils and causing dryness. You should also be using a conditioner after each shampoo to keep your locks hydrated, and take the time to replenish lost moisture with a weekly hair mask.
Whenever possible, if at all, skip washing your hair altogether and use dry shampoo to revive your hair. Spritz your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray to refresh your look and add lift.
