Working out & ShampooiNg your HaiR

     Every woman wants to look good and feel great.  So we try and eat healthy and have a regular workout regimen.  The dilemma is that many of us want to look good but we want our hair to look good too.  We all know that shampooing your hair everyday will damage your tresses and cause excessive dryness no matter what hair type you have or what race you are.  When you're exercising you're sweating and it's the salts from your hair that can break your hair shaft down.  I know you want to make sure that does not happen, so I'm here to let you know how to avoid that problem so you can continue to workout and have healthy hair.

  • Invest in a dry shampoo (removes odor/bacteria and residue with suds)*
  • Invest in a product that acts as an anti-humectant 
  • Instead of shampooing your hair after EVERY workout co-wash instead. That means to rinse your hair with water, towel blot it and then apply conditioner to it and then rinse it with cool water. (NO SHAMPOOING)* You are rising the sweat away, not your hair's natural oils. This does not have to be done every time you workout. 
Take a blow dryer and blow your roots dry and then when your hair is 90% dry apply a serum to smooth your hair from the FRIZZIES. 

Here are some products that I suggest you try:

IC Hair Polisher Heat Protector Straightening Serum

Big Sexy Hair

BIOSILK SILK THERAPY(can be found at JCPenny hair salons)
You can find this at your local beauty supply store.
