Does your hair feel loose, damaged, or unmanageable after your workout? These post-workout hair tips will help revive and refresh your hair.

Nothing excites us like a good workout. However, some of our post-workout hair habits can be harmful to our hair. Really yes.


While some of these post-workout hair routine habits may seem petty, over time they can actually lead to hair breakage, hair loss, and buildup. Who wants that? By making your post-workout routine more efficient for your hair, you can help ensure that your hair stays healthy and full of life. Here are six post-workout tips to help protect your hair.


Tip 1: Using Elastics on Wet Hair

While it may seem like there’s no harm in turning your wet hair into a quick bun after a shower, these tight elastics can actually cause your hair to thin or break off over time. This is because your hair gets the most damage when it gets wet. If it has a tight elastic tugging at the ends, those strands can fall out. It’s definitely not a pretty picture. If you want to skip blow-drying your hair after a workout, just let your hair down and let it air dry naturally.


Tip 2: Use a hair product to detangle hair

It may sound like a hassle to throw another beauty product in your gym bag, but hair detangling is a must if you plan on showering after your workout. Not only will this handy product soften and smooth out your strands, but it will also help remove any knots that may be stuck in your strands. Once you’re out of the shower, towel dries your hair until most of the moisture is gone, spray your hair with a detangler and then a wide-toothed brush to gently remove any knots. Spray with a brush. Use a comb. Be sure to work from the bottom up when brushing to avoid unnecessary breakage.


Tip 3: Dry Shampoo to Revive Your Sweaty, Oily Hair

Is your hair getting sweaty after your workout? If so, turn to your towels before turning to your dry shampoo. While dry shampoos are wonderful for absorbing excess oil, they cannot be expected to make your wet hair dry. Instead, use your towel to soak the sweat from your hair before using your oil-absorbing dry shampoo. That way your product will be able to do its job effectively without adding extra product buildup to your strands, according to New York Magazine’s The Cut.

Tip 4: Always Keep an Extra Hair Accessory in Your Gym Bag

Although wearing a hat and scarf is a great way to keep your hair off your face when you work out, the same things don’t work for your hair once you leave the gym. Think of these accessories as another piece of clothing. If your clothes are so sweaty that you won’t wear it outside the gym, the same rule should apply to your hair accessories. Not only is it going to feel gross on your head, but those hats and scarves can actually trap or transfer sweat and bacteria to your strands. It is completely gross. Instead, bring along either a separate accessory or just a fabric hair tie to tame your mane after the gym.

Tip 5: Always Brush Your Hair After Doing a Workout

To take advantage of the natural oils in your hair after a workout, use a boar bristle brush to comb through your hair. According to Allure, brushing your hair after a workout can break up any congestion at your roots and help distribute the same oil in the middle and ends of your hair. Although this isn’t always necessary for oily hair, it is a great way to hydrate dry hair.
