Sweat and Hair Maintenance

Beautiful wet brunette

Sweating is something that everyone does (and is supposed to). It’s a result of the body’s internal cooling system to keep us from over heating whenever body temperature is elevated as a result of exercise, physical activity or otherwise. It’s normal and healthy, but it can sometimes affect the look of your hair.

As we move closer toward summer weather with each passing day the chances of increased temperatures that may have an effect on your hair (and body as a whole) also increases. You may not be able to control Mother Nature, but you can most definitely minimize the effects that her heat and sweat by product causes to your hair. Here are some great tips to sweat proof your hair:

“Stop Messing With It

You know that habit of tousling your hair that pops up when you get nervous? Well, frankly, it’s only making your frizz situation worse, especially as the weather gets ever more sweaty. So for the time being, cut it out.

Fine-Tune Your Shampoo Routine

Are your locks prone to frizz at even the slightest hint of moisture? Then you need to make sure that you’re not doing anything to exacerbate the issue. Step one: recalibrating how often you wash your hair. Shampooing too often will strip your stands of natural oils, making them even more susceptible to sweat-related insanity. On the flip side, not washing enough will leave your hair looking greasy, a sight made only worse by perspiration. So figure out your happy middle ground, and stick to it.

Treat Your Curls Right
When it comes to their hair being affected by moisture, curly maned men unfortunately have it a lot worse than their straight and wavy-haired counterparts. Without the proper attention, perspiration can make a ringlet-filled mop can go from Kit Harington to Carrot Top in an instant.”

Sweat is inevitable so knowing the best way to manage it well help keep your hair looking it’s best. Make sure to visit your Ottawa hair stylist regularly and keep up with hair maintenance in between appointments.
