How to Have Great Hair and Still Hit the Gym and Pool
Here’s the deal, I can’t speak for everybody, but I’m trying to get summer time fine! We’re already in the late part of March and we only have a few more months to go. I wanna be beach ready and to do that it requires going to the gym and working out. Now the problem with that is, I’m sweating out my hair and my hair extensions. If you are like me and having the same problem, keep reading.
If you are anything like me, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. On some days I have a whole conversation in my head about going to the gym or sacrificing my good health for my hair style. I know.. I know.. lol it may sound silly, but this is an on-going problem. I want to stay healthy but I want my hair to look and stay healthy as well. Is that too much to ask for?!
How to Have Great Hair
I have been pretty active for most of my life and I have recently started swimming as part of my workout regimen. While I love this exercise plan and the results I’m getting, I’m hating what the chlorine is doing to my hair. Who knew chlorine could be so freaking drying? It leaves my hair so dry and brittle, I hate it. I know what you’re thinking, why don’t you use a swimming cap? Believe me, I’ve done that and my hair still finds a way to get wet.
While I normally wash my hair once a week, I am finding that my tresses need a completely different cleansing schedule, and different products, too.
Now here comes the good news. Instead of washing your tresses every time you have a sweaty head from the gym or decide to take a dip in the pool just use a co-wash. I am not sure who invented this stuff, but it has been like a God send for me. I love it! It helps to cleanse my locks but somehow keep it moisturized all in the same token.
I normally like to pair my Co-washing products with my regular conditioners and moisturizing products to keep my locks healthy, shiny and luscious. What I love most about this hair cleansing regimen is that I can also use it on my all of my virgin hair extensions. It works wonders on my
Malaysian curly hair extensions and on my Brazilian straight hair extensions as well. The cleansing is so gentle it’s beneficial to all types. So, if you are having the same problem, skip the shampooing and do a co-wash instead. Just shampoo once a week or once every couple of weeks.
