Hey Friends,

How do peeps wear their hair when they workout? Or do you just cleanse and style afterward? Just curious what y'all do!

I work out after work and just put it in a pony, bun, or braid. If I'm going someplace later and it looks awful I will wash and style as usual. But I can usually get away with a pony.

My hair is pretty long, so I just bun it and secure it with two small octopus clips. The curls get weighed down though.

Even though I workout 3 times a week, however, I only rinse/wash my hair once a week because the full wetting process + drying takes too much time for me . But using a scented spray is a good idea though .

High pony. But I'll make a confession: I work out 5-6 days a week and I only fully wet my head 3 days. I spritz my hair with water and my scalp with lavender spray on the days I don't wash (I still shower though I promise!)

2B/2C for the most part, dense, coarse, porous, NEVER SHINY!!!!
Currently shoulder length, growing it out but with bangs for my Frankenstein forehead
Gracefully going grey
LP: KC Come Clean, SM Moisture Retention
NP: V05 Kiwi Lime
RO: Tresemme Naturals
Styling: SM Curl & Style Milk, KCCC for everyday, CK and Tweak sparingly in humid weather (cha-ching!!)
DT: whatever is in my cabinet, most recently olive oil and warm honey
Pony-braid at the top of my head. Only the hair close to the head get sweaty, and it's easier to dry it off later with a towel. If I have the time I etiher co-wash or rinse it with water, to get the sweat out.
I train 5 days a week and keep my hair collar length. For spin class I just use hair grips to keep the sides from hanging in my face. I would love to grow it long but just can't be bothered with the extra maintenance! As it is I no poo twice a week and rinse with water once and I find that enough of a pain. I have VERY fine, thin 3ab hair
