How often should we wash our hair? Of course, the texture and condition of your hair plays a significant role, but washing too frequently can lead to stripped, straw-like hair, an increase in oil production, and scalp inflammation.
Spraying on dry shampoo after a workout is a quick way to sticky, cake-y hair. Prepping your hair prior to your workouts with dry shampoos can help prepare your strands to absorb any sweat during workout. It lays the groundwork to actually prevent a lot of your scalp sweat from dampening your hair.
Dry shampoos are mainly made of super absorbent powders like tapioca and rice starches, and coating your hair in them pre-workout they’re ready and waiting to soak up all that extra moisture. It’s more effective than using it once your hair is already wet and sweaty, and will disappear more easily into hair, too
Here’s a life hack for you: try lightly styling your hair so that it will easily transition into a post-workout style, like plaiting straight hair into simple braids.
The excess heat you produce while working out will help the mask penetrate more deeply, and it also helps to keep your hair nice and slicked back during exercise. Post-workout, comb out your 'treatment style' and either rinse and air-dry or slick back into a fresh pony until you can rinse out. It will look sleek and super chic!
