How To Make Your Hair Washes Last Longer Between Workouts

The noticeable option is dry shampoo, and we stand by it as the best method to mask oil in between laundries (we like this alternative by Living Proof), however there are some various other ways to maintain our hair cleans lasting longer between workouts.

Jonny Long, beauty parlor owner, founder of hair and also skincare brand Saunders & Long as well as overall hair expert, informed : “When individuals sweat during an exercise, natural instinct is usually to wash their hair in the shower after that.

So there you have it: for fresh hair without throwing in the towel on your exercise, wash the hairline just, rinse as well as condition just, or try some cute up-dos.

The problem is, we’ve already been told how bad washing your hair too often is (stripping it of its natural oils yada yada), so what’s the alternative?

How do we keep our hair looking presentable, while exercising most days AND not over-washing it? Seems like an impossible conundrum, doesn’t it? *Sigh.*

The obvious option is dry shampoo, and we stand by it as the best way to mask grease in between washes (we love this option by Living Proof), but there are some other ways to keep our hair washes lasting longer between workouts.

Jonny Long, salon owner, co-founder of hair and skincare brand Saunders & Long and all-round hair expert, told : “When people sweat during a workout, natural instinct is often to wash their hair in the shower afterwards.

“I’m not an advocate of daily hair washing regardless of exercise, as shampoo can dry the hair out.”

He continued: “As an alternative, I recommend just washing your hairline or fringe, as this is where you tend to sweat more.”

This makes sense and can easily be achieved if you keep your hair in a bun while showering, and apply small amounts of shampoo to your hairline and rinse off.

“Another option is to simply rinse and condition the hair after a workout – but leave out the shampoo,” says Jonny.

“This will help your hair feel refreshed without the drying effects of shampoo.”

Jonny also suggests that those with long hair experiment with up-dos for workouts such as braids and plaits. “You’ll have a nice new curly look when you take them out!” he says.
