If your New Year’s resolution is to workout more, welcome to the club. Also you may be wondering the best way to care for your hair extensions if you’re working out regularly. Well no worries on that front. In this post, we’ll break down what to do when working out with hair extensions!
Before you work out, secure your hair in your favorite style. Ideally a bun, ponytail or braid. Make sure it’s tight enough to stay in place, but loose enough that it doesn’t cause extra strain on your tape strips or fusion bonds. Lower hairstyles tug the least on your hair extensions.
If your workout involves swimming, wet your hair and apply conditioner to it from the mid-shaft to ends. This will protect it from getting frizzy and dried out from the chlorine.
If your workout is outdoors, apply 3-in-1 Mist to protect your natural hair and hair extensions from harmful UV rays (plus get the benefit of it being a detangler while offering added shine).
After you’re finished working out for the day, wash your hair with your favorite Ostia Collection shampoo and conditioner. The Ostia Collection is specially formulated to be safe on hair extensions.
If your hair is feeling a bit extra dry (if you swam in chlorinated water, for instance), use the Intense Conditioner because it doubles at a deep moisturizing hair masque. Just let it sit in your hair for 3-5 minutes before thoroughly rinsing it out.
It’s truly that easy to take proper care of your hair while working out with hair extensions. So don’t let the hair care daunt you, catch up on your New Year’s resolution today!
