How To Maintain A Blowout If You Work Out

February 10, 2016 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | beauty

There’s no doubt that working out–whether at home or at a gym–is good for your whole body. But that gorgeous blowout you just paid big bucks for at the salon? Probably not going to be looking as good as your firm body after a good sweat sesh.

Scalp sweat and constricting hairstyles can take the polish right out of a blowout, but believe it or not there are ways to maintain sleek and straight hair without giving up your daily exercise routines. Erika Wasser, founder and CEO of Glam&Go express styling bar, provides four tips for making your blowout last (even on the treadmill).

1. Choose your style wisely. Before you hit the gym, resist the urge to quickly throw your hair into a reliable tight ponytail. “A braid or a loose top knot are the two best hair styles during a workout,” Wasser says. “Both will leave you with tousled waves and no big dents, while still keeping your hair out of your face on the elliptical.”

2.  Use dry shampoo. We’ve said it before: dry shampoo really is a miracle hair product that can do it all. “Dry-shampoo is a great solution both pre- and post- workout,” Wasser says. “It will add texture to your braid or bun while making your post-workout regroup a breeze. Just spray 5-6 inches from your root, massage in and style accordingly.”

3. Know the enemy. Sure, sweat is no friend of your blowout, but your hair elastics are actually the bigger enemy. “Hair elastics are the number one killer of a great blowout,” Wasser says. “They create dents in the hair and are the fastest way to ruin a great hair day.”

4.  Keep your hands off. “Your hair’s second biggest enemy? Yourself,” Wasser says. “I know it’s hard post blowout not to touch your gorgeous tresses, however, the oils in your hand will create frizz and pull your style apart. The best bet: admire from afar. Look, but don’t touch.”
