How I Revive My Post Workout Hair

object in mirror is sweatier than it appears

As many of you should know by now, I only wash my hair once a week on average. Less washing helps preserve the natural oils in the scalp and keep hair well moisturized. Especially if you have hair that is more on the dry side. It is recommended that you limit your hair washing to once, or even every other week for drier hair. But after a sweaty cardio workout, its sometimes hard to imagine that you can revive the hot mess atop your head – without a thorough clean. But babes, I am here to tell you it is so very possible. Here is how I manage mine!

First things first. BEFORE I get in the shower, with my hair still in a bun, ponytail or braid, spray all around your hairline and crown with dry shampoo. My favorite is Kristin Ess Dry Shampoo ($14).

Next, always, wrap your hair in a hair towel (or shower cap) to protect your hair from shower steam. *I leave my hair up but you can also let it down, DO NOT brush it out yet. I love these hair towels, they come in a set of two for just $10. I use them every single time I shower (except on hair wash day).

After you get out of the shower, take your hair out of the towel. At this point, I take it out of whatever its fastened in and spray more dry shampoo if its needed. I then put it back up, and let it marinate in the dry shampoo while I do my makeup. I always joke with my husband – doesn’t this make you excited to grow old with me? Haha, that white hair though.

Once my makeup is done, let all your hair down. Don’t worry about the hot mess you see!

At this point, I blow dry around my crown, then apply golden elixir that is Olaplex Bonding Oil. This product has been a game changer for my hair. It strengthens the bonds of you hair strands at both your roots and my ends, ($28).

Now, before you blow dry and style: don’t forget the heat protector. This one is my favorite and it is less than $5. Spray wherever you will be blow drying or using a styling tool – for me its usually my ends and the little pieces around my ears. Spray, spray, spray – blow dry, comb through and style.

AND BOOM. Fresh, revived hair that looks like you just washed it.

Hope you enjoyed!
