Gym Hair, Don't Care.. Tania Jamie Trustum tell us how to keep locks looking great pre & pos

Gym hair, don't care... Holding a plank with hair hanging in your face can be incredibly annoying, not only does it effect your concentration but the acidic fluid we create whilst sweating can have a damaging affect on coloured brunettes and highlighted blondes, resulting in a dull, slightly red or brassy hue. To prevent this from happening keep your hair colour alive for longer by applying Moroccanoil Treatment to towel dry hair before hitting the gym.

Just like our bones and muscles, hair requires a regular supply of key nutrients to keep it strong, glossy and lustrous. Hair is made up of protein and the cells that line the scalp contain Omega-3 which provides a natural conditioner and help keep locks hydrated. To feed your hair from the inside make sure to add plenty of protein and Omega-3 rich foods to your diet, think oily fish, pumpkin seeds and avocado.

When it comes to styling hair opt for braids and ponytails. Boxer, french, milkmaid the options for braids are endless. These school girl classic are a firm favourite with celebrities like Blake Lively, Nichole Richie and Kylie Jenner. Secure with snag free bands and add extra bobby pins to guarantee hair stays in place.

You can't go wrong with a ponytail it’s simple and practical. The classic ponytail is ideal for workouts, keep them high and tights and sleek down any flyaway hairs with Moroccanoil . Spice up your ponytail by using snag free bands and dividing up into 2-3 sections create a bubble affect. For low impact workouts opt for the ballerina look, twist hair round into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Funk up hair with a cute hair tie from Popband or keep fringes under control with a Lululemon headband. After your workout, let that pony down, apply lots of dry shampoo to your roots and you’ll be impressed with all your newfound Volume.
