The Ultimate 101 Guide To Pre & Post Gym Hair Care

After an intense workout, your body isn't the only thing that needs attention – your hair does, too. Beyond the physical exertion, sweat, and environmental exposure like UV rays, your locks may be craving attention. So, give yourself an updated hair regimen designed to not only revive but also enhance the vibrancy of your hair, leaving it looking and feeling fabulous.

Discover the ultimate gym hair care routine that will leave your locks looking and feeling fabulous.

Why Is A Post-Gym Hair Care Routine Important?

Whether you're a fitness fanatic or a casual gym-goer, post-gym hair care is essential for maintaining healthy and beautiful hair. Sweat, exposure to environmental elements, and regular washing can take a toll on your hair.

How To Look After Your Hair Pre & Post Gym

1. Tie It Up

Consider tying your hair back with a claw clip during workouts to minimise friction and prevent tangling. This can help reduce breakage and keep your hair looking smooth and sleek. Using a claw clip, instead of firmly tying it back, will ensure your scalp isn’t too tight, which can damage your hair in the long run.

2. Embrace Dry Shampoo

On days when you don't have time for a full wash, a high-quality dry shampoo can be a lifesaver. It absorbs excess oil, refreshes your scalp, and adds volume to your post-gym hair.

3. Pre-Workout Protection

Before hitting the gym, apply lightweight hair oil and slick it back, being sure to coat your strands and provide a barrier against sweat and environmental aggressors. This preemptive measure helps minimise moisture loss and nourishes your hair throughout your workout as Lemonaid rebalances natural oils and controls excess grease.

4. Hydrate From Within

Remember that hydration starts from the inside out. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your workout to ensure your hair (and body) stays hydrated. Proper hydration promotes healthy hair growth whilst simultaneously preventing dryness and breakage.

5. Post-Workout Refresh

After your workout, if you desire, wash your hair and add a leave-in oil to your hair; this will leave your locks feeling clean and invigorated.

Crafting Your Post-Gym Hair Care Routine

Start your post-gym hair care routine by rinsing your hair with lukewarm water. This helps remove excess sweat and prevents the salt from settling into your hair, which can lead to dryness and damage.

Consider using a sulfate-free shampoo and a nourishing conditioner to cleanse and hydrate your hair without stripping away natural oils. Look for products designed specifically for post-gym hair care to address the unique needs of sweat-damaged hair.

After washing, resist the temptation to towel dry your hair vigorously. Instead, gently pat it dry using a softer material like a microfibre towel to minimise damage, as excessive rubbing can lead to breakage, significantly when your hair is weakened after a workout.
