My Hair-Care Routine: Curated Especially for Those Who Hit the Gym

Hello FitFam!

Hope you all are doing well!

Today I bring you something special and that is my hair care routine! Some days are good hair days while some days your hair is just out of control. The only way to reverse the cycle of hair damage is by adopting a healthful regime. Especially for those who hit the gym regularly, it is important to abide by certain norms. This can go a long way and help you have strong and beautiful hair.

To get going, you do not need a complete overhaul. The hair care methods I follow are simple tricks that you can incorporate with ease. So without any further delay, let’s jump straight into them.

Use Sulphate-Free Shampoo: Sulfate is a chemical used as a cleansing agent. It is a shampooing staple. Regular exposure to sulfate can cause serious risks and damage your health. Since I wash my hair regularly I always choose to use a sulfate-free shampoo. 

Condition Only Hair Ends: It is your hair that needs the most hydration and thus you should condition it from mid-length to the ends. Never condition your roots as it will lead to severe hair fall. The ends of your hair tend to be driest and they need maximum attention. 

Oil Your Hair: Oiling your hair once a week is of utmost importance. It helps to exfoliate your scalp, cleanses dead skin, and nourishes the hair. I prefer massaging my hair for 10 to 15 minutes in a week. Note that do not leave the oil on your hair for more than 24 hours as it will attract dirt and make your hair weak. 

Tie Your Hair While Working Out: While gymming it is advisable to keep hair off your face. You can simply pull your hair back and tuck it in a hair tie so that it does not come in the way of your workout. 

Use Hair Protection: The sun is a major factor that makes the hair cuticle open removing moisture and melanin. This results in dry and frizzy hair and loss of hair color. If you workout under the sun, using hair sunscreen is necessary to save yourself from this hassle. Many brands provide nourishing effects. I use the DOT and KEY hair sunscreen!

Choose Oil-Free Sunscreens: When you indulge in a vigorous workout there are chances that your hair tucked in a pony can touch your face. To avoid the hair to stick to your face for longer hours, use an oil-free sunscreen. This will help you have a hassle-free workout. 

 Avoid Using a Blow Dryer: It is advisable to avoid blow-drying your hair. Frequent usage of heat on the hair can cause hair damage which makes your hair brittle and promotes breakage. 

So FitFam these are some hacks I follow regularly to have healthy hair. I would encourage you to try them out as well. While they aren’t a lot of effort their results are truly big. Try them and do tell me about your experience!
