Nothing gets those happy hormones flowing like a good workout. Exercising gives you a healthy body and mind. But it also leaves you with sweaty gym hair, which is not exactly the best look, is it? Well, you’re not alone. Almost everyone ends up with knots and hair that is sweaty, messy, and smells weird. Taking a shower is not the only way to get rid of sweaty hair. You need hair products such as dry shampoo that can help you get clean hair post-workout. And we are happy to help.
Using a dry shampoo
So, want to know how to use dry shampoo? It is not a complicated procedure. Hold the bottle at least 15 centimetres away from your hair and spray it directly to the roots. Give it a few minutes to settle and then comb your hair to distribute the product evenly across your tresses.
Now that you know how to use dry shampoo, let’s address the hair troubles you’ll experience post-workout and how to deal with it.
Hair trouble: Weird smell
Imagine the awkwardness when you smell something weird and realise it’s your hair? Well, you aren’t the only one whose hair smells funny after an intense workout session. But you are now in a tough position because it’s not your hair washing day and yet you’ll have to shampoo. This can mess up your washing schedule, and it’s certainly not good for your tresses. So, what do you do? Try Pantene Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Foam to beat the smell. This lightweight, waterless and sulphate-free dry shampoo is exactly what you need to get rid of the odour. Formulated with a Pro-V blend and tapioca, this dry shampoo foam revives flat hair in 60 seconds! Once you let this dry shampoo work its magic, your hair will smell of creamy vanilla and jasmine.
Hair trouble: Dirty, sweaty hair strands
Sweaty hair after a gym session is a given. And, as you may already know, sweaty hair brings a lot of other problems with it. So, how do you get rid of sweat and other impurities from your hair, without stepping inside the shower? You use Pantene Never Tell Dry Shampoo!

Plus, with the properties of tapioca and wild mint, this dry shampoo gives you fresh, free-flowing hair.
Hair trouble: Hair frizz
People often end up spending a lot of time taming hair frizz, one of the most common hair care woes. If your hair is prone to frizz, then sweaty workout sessions can trigger it. To keep hair frizz at bay post-workout, you can use Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist. This gives you smooth and conditioned hair instantly between washes. This lightweight, moisturising spray is created with Pro-V Complex, Omega-9, aloe vera, and jojoba oil, and leaves your hair smelling of fresh coconut and peach. This fine mist tames flyaways and frizz and gives you healthy, nourished hair for the next 24 hours. You can also try using Pantene Ultimate 10 BB Crème right after you wash your hair. This crème acts as a perfect base and an all-in-one miracle cream that moisturises, and smoothens your tresses, and controls frizz to give you lightweight manageability.
Hair trouble: Tangles
Tangles are bound to occur especially if you don’t tie your hair up while exercising. The constant movement and accumulation of sweat can cause the hair to clump together and start knotting. If you have long hair, then securing it in a braid is the best way to avoid knots, and also your ideal gym hair. And once you have completed your work-out, spray dry shampoo at the roots and give it a blast of cold air with your blow-dryer. You can also use the Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist whose natural lipids will help release tangles and make your hair silky and smooth.
Hair trouble: Ponytail crease
The easiest way to save your hair from tangles and knots is to tie your hair into a ponytail. But making a tight ponytail can also leave a crease on your hair. So, the first step to getting rid of this crease is to not tie your ponytail so tight. However, if you do end up with it, you can use a detangling spray or Pantene Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Foam and give your hair a quick blow-dry to smooth out the texture. Remember, the way you do your hair before your workout makes a lot of difference.
Hair trouble: The ponytail is the only go-to hairstyle
If you think that a simple ponytail is a solution to keep your post-workout hair problems at bay, think again. Here are some of the easiest hairstyles you can try to protect your hair:
• Messy low bun: This is the easiest way to style gym hair. It’s quick, and even if it looks messy, it’s stylish. Start by making a low ponytail, but when you are on the final hair tie wrap, do not pull your hair out all the way.
• Half updo: This is the best way to prevent sweaty hair, especially if you have short hair. Take a portion of your hair and tie it into a bun. This hairdo is quite practical as it covers your scalp and creates volume as well.
• French braids: French braids can be your go-to hairstyle to conceal sweaty hair. These braids are easy to make and secure your hair even when you perform exercises.
• Hair twists: If you are not into braids, another great way to keep sweaty hair at bay is to opt for hair twists. This will prevent your hair from getting sweaty and dirty.
Sweaty hair can give rise to several other hair disasters. But these hairdos, together with the goodness of Pantene, can make it easier to tackle any and every hair care trouble coming your way.
