OK gym, we admit that you’re great for our body, but you’re not so kind on our hair! A sweaty session might make you feel exhilarated with all those endorphins pumping, but the frizzy locks left behind could be putting a dampener on your feel-good factor. Check out our quick and easy solutions for gym hair using our up-to-98% natural, professional haircare range; Aura Botanica.
Gym hair: after low impact exercise
After exercise such as pilates, stretching or a gentle yoga practice, chances are you’re not going to be sweating quite so much and might be able to skip a thorough wash of your hair.
Bring back that fresh feeling to your locks with Essence D’Éclat mist from the Aura Botanica range. This lightweight, bi-phase moisturising mist acts as a primer, helping to prevent frizz when applied to damp hair. The sweet orange essential oils and rose scent refresh, whilst the special formula, which includes coconut and argan oil, helps to banish frizz and bring back a healthy hair glow.
Top Tip! During your workout, wear a fabric headband to not only keep hair from the face, but simultaneously absorb sweat, making the post-work out wash that little bit easier.
Gym hair: after high impact exercise
After a cardio routine, you will really want to give your hair a proper wash to leave you feeling fresh and confident.
Rinse with warm water before massaging in our light-weight Micellar shampoo, wash out thoroughly and repeat. This gently cleansing shampoo, with moisturising ingredients such as coconut and argan oils, can be used every day and is designed to remove impurities, making it your ideal gym partner!

Follow up with Soin Fondamental conditioner to deeply nourish and control frizz.
Top Tip! Make sure you focus on areas where sweat tends to gather, such as the hairline.
After this, opt for a loose and comfortable hairstyle when your hair is still damp. Spray a bit of Essence d’Éclat to boost hair softness and glow, and let it dry naturally, then enjoy the added movement once you take it out. Depending on your hair length, a bun tied on the top of the head, plaited pigtails, or a braid will also add texture afterwards.
