4 Ways To Eliminate Gym Hair

Shaneya-2.jpgIntense workouts are great for our bodies, but not so much for our hair. Here are some insider tips from Level 2 Stylist Shaneya Starr on keeping your hair looking fresh after a sweaty workout!

1.) Start with a Great Cut

Shaneya recommends light textured layers to create more body and movement. And, did you know that adding a few highlights can also add volume and dimension? Ask Shaneya about the best cut for your hair type!

2.) Consider an All Soft Chemistry Shot

It only takes 10 minutes and makes all the difference for your busy life at the gym and on the run. Don’t have the time to sit for 10 minutes? Shaneya suggests you pick up some Moroccan Oil Defining Curl Cream to deal with unwanted frizz or unruly hair right after an intense cycle class!

3.) Tame the Frizz

Shaneya encourages active gymgoers to use Redken Frizz Dismiss Rebel Tame in order to keep things smooth and soft in between training sessions. This product will help your hair remain sleek and frizz free.

4.) Protect Your Lovely Locks

Don’t make matters worse! If you are trying to get your hair back to beautiful after putting in work at the gym, try Pureology Smoothing Perfection Smoothing Serum before you blow dry.
