We’ve all been there before: you finish a killer workout only to immediately ask yourself, “What should i do with my hair? ” Post-workout hair doesn’t look very chic on anyone, especially if you didn’t have time to wash your hair and you have to head directly to work or you have plans right after you workout. But, if you plan and prep your hair accordingly you can still work up a serious sweat, without having to worry about sweaty post-gym hair.
Prep Your hair Before
