Whether you’re into Zumba, running, hot yoga, spinning or boxing, working out can take a toll on curls and waves, causing frizz and oil build up. Exercise makes us feels great and does wonders for our bodies and brains, however it doesn’t always do too many wonders for our tresses. And while your hair may pay a price for getting healthy, it should, of course, never stop you from staying healthy.
Like most women, we sweat when our heart rate gets elevated, some more than others. If your workout takes places outside, then you may also encounter some of the elements like wind and sun as well, which could also be harmful to curls.
Here are a few tips to consider for your curly workouts:
Weatherproof your hair
Stay true to your natural texture, therefore, stay away from flat ironing and blow outs as the weather and the workout won’t be kind to your hair afterwards. Try to use a small amount of leave-in conditioner and gel that works with your hairtype. If you do end up sweating, you won’t have a lot of droop in your hair since there’s not much product in it to begin with.
