 You don’t want to miss this!

I just recently started going back to the gym. I know most people work out before the summer to get their body’s in shape, but not me. I wait until summer is over to work on the pudge. I know Fall will be here soon and I will be piling on the layers, but I still need to lose a few pounds so that my clothes fit properly.  

Anyway, once I leave the gym I am a sweaty mess. My hair is soaked and by time I get home it is very dry.

Since I cut my hair short I can’t go back to the comfort of my beloved pony’s. I get my hair done once every 2 weeks and my hair does not last at all anymore. I started washing my own hair, which alleviates the cost of me going to the salon once a week, but I still want my hair to last longer. Is this even possible?

Here are some tips that I found that worked for other people

  • Wear your hair in a ponytail
  • Wrap your hair and tie with a bandana *if you sweat excessively do not tie your hair*
  • Make sure your hair is away from your neck and forehead
  • Try a leave-in-conditioner
  • Blow dry your hair as soon as you finish working out *too much heat*
  • Use a dry shampoo- it removes the oil and dirt in between washes

Before I run out and buy these products, I want to know what works for you all.

Are any of you having the same dilemma as I am? What do you do with your hair once you leave the gym?

Last night at the Sephora in Herald Square, Carol’s Daughter founder, Lisa Price was joined by Mary J. Blige, Cassie, Solange, and Selita Ebanks for the launch of their new hair products from the Monoi line.  The line of products include a shampoo, conditioner, and mask that strengthens and repairs hair, reducing breakage by an estimated 95%
