You know all too well that if you don’t workout first thing in the morning, it just doesn’t happen. Period. And while your workout commitment is impressive, your sweaty hair is definitely a no-go. But if you don’t have time to wash, dry and style your hair, what can you do? You can skip washing your hair with these five smart tips.
Embrace the wet look
Instead of resisting the post-workout wet hair look, embrace it. Just add some conditioner to style your hair so it actually looks wet on purpose. Just use a leave-in conditioner or a hair mask.
Control flyaways with gel
Gel might not be a daily product, but following a sweaty workout, it’s a must-have. Gel can smooth out all the flyaways and frizz, keep everything in place and give you a sleek look.
Style your hair while you workout
Let your workout double as a hair styling session. Braid your hair in French brais, give them a quick spray with a wave mist and focus on your workout. When you’re down, let your hair out and voila: you have heatless waves.
Dry up with dry shampoo
Dry shampoo is an obvious choice, but it won’t do you much good if you spray it on sweaty hair. So, give your roots a spray before you workout. This can soak up the sweat so your hair looks fresh straight after your gym session.
Style your hair with headbands
Headscarves, bandanas, sashes: they all help to disguise sweaty hair and keep flyaways under control. Wear them with a ponytail, top knot, or a low bun for a put together look that will fool everyone.
