Interval Training: Fast and Hair-Friendly

Interval training, fast fitness that's easy on your hair.


Is it possible to have the best of everything? Interval training workouts can last as little as 20 minutes, perfect for time-strapped people. You work very hard, doing multi-muscle exercises (often with weights), alternating cardio with strength training.

Because the workout is short, it’s easy to stay motivated. You’ll work up a sweat (if you don’t, you’re doing something wrong!), but your hair won’t be exposed to sweaty scalp for very long, so hair recovers easily

As a bonus, research has also demonstrated that short, intense cardio and strength-training interval workouts whip your body into shape for power, toned muscles and cardiovascular fitness as well as longer workouts and better than less-intense workouts.
