6 Tricks to Make Your Blowout Last at the Gym
Want your hairstyle to last, even through an intense sweat session? These tricks will help you put off washing your hair
Unfortunately, I do have to wash my hair three or four times a week -- after every workout. I haven't been able to master the art of preserving a blowout through an exercise class or run in the park. While I don't mind as much if I've done my hair myself, on more than one occasion I've skipped a cardio session so I could keep an exceptionally pretty professional blowout in tact for an extra day. I love a good workout. But -- as embarrassing as it is to admit -- I love a good hair day more.
Skip ahead to find out how to avoid washing your hair -- even after a workout.
I know there are women out there who skip washing their hair after the gym (I even know some who don't shower at all, which really baffles me). So I started asking hairstylists for tips on how they do it. The most surprising thing I learned is that how you blow out your hair in the first place is as important as what you do with it while you're exercising.
"Sweat is the worst culprit when it comes to ruining a blowout," says Angelo David, celebrity stylist and New York City salon owner. "And depending on how much you sweat, it may just be a lost cause." However, if you're not sweating buckets in a hot yoga class, stylists have some tricks you can try to keep your blowout an extra day -- and walk out of the gym with hair that looks as good as when you walked in.
