We all know that working out does help us feel and look better. It helps us to push back the hands of time as we age. But we also know that some of us have issues with working out because we don’t know what to do with our hair after we workout.

We’re here to tell you…do not sweat the small stuff when it comes to your health. That’s right: you can work out and still maintain great hair!


Here are some smart tips to challenge yourself on whether to workout versus not working out. If you have time to shower after a workout, you have time to do all that is necessary for your hair and scalp. By the time you finish your shower, you will have a clean and conditioned hair and scalp.


Clean and Condition

  • Step 1. In the shower rinse your hair as you rinse your body.
  • Step 2. Apply shampoo to your hair as you lather your body. Using an acid-balanced shampoo is safe on your hair, scalp, and body, and it saves time.
  • Step 3. Rinse your hair and body.
  • Step 4. Apply conditioner and let it sit while you shave your legs or lather your body one more time.
  • Step 5. Rinse your hair as you rinse your body.

You are now clean and conditioned from head to toe.
