Great hair and the gym don’t always go hand in hand but if we had it our way we would be able to have beautiful hair on the daily and be able to visit the gym regularly. Whether it’s pre-workout or off-season, learn how to keep your hair healthy in and out of the gym with these workout tips for your hair.
When working out, push yourself, not your hair, to the limit with these essential workout tips for hair!
No-pull elastic bands ensure that you don’t incur breakage during your workout.
This will keep the halo of frizz from appearing every time you put up a pony. We love the Invisibobble (left) and our Cezanne band (right).
Vitamins B, C and Biotin are all nutrients essential for healthy, strong hair.
Vitamin B complex, all eight B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12), promotes the growth and division of cells- it makes your hair grow long, strong, and super shiny! Replenish your body’s B vitamins with meats, eggs, nuts, grains, and vegetables.
Vitamin C helps the body produce collagen, which is a vital for healthy and strong hair, skin, and nails. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that fights free radicals that can damage hair, making it weak and brittle. Try noshing on oranges, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, papayas, strawberries, kiwi, and red bell pepper after your workout for a healthy dose of Vitamin C.
Biotin is key when it comes to healthy hair. It helps produce keratin, a primary component of healthy hair. It also increases hair’s elasticity and protects against dryness, which helps prevent breakage. For a boost of Biotin, try snacking on mushrooms, avocados, and peanut butter.
Ponytails and braids are the best workout styles.
Boxer braids are especially sporty and add a flirty, tomboy touch.
Coat hair before you jump in the pool.
Apply Cezanne Leave-In Crème Conditioner to keep hair from drying out. You can also slick your hair with our Argan Styling Serum before you put it into a ponytail so the elastic doesn’t pull on your strands!
Don’t want to wash your hair after your workout?
Try dry shampoo. It’ll absorb oil and sweat.
Cezanne’s After Care has a fresh, clean fruity scent that’s perfect for athletes!
Try the Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner for lightweight moisture and volume.
Omegas 3 and 6
Omegas 3 and 6 are essential fatty acids that our bodies can’t produce, but are essential for healthy hair. They nourish hair follicles, regulate water loss in hair, and improve scalp circulation. Try adding leafy greens, seafood, and olive oil to your diet for an extra kick of Omegas 3 and 6.
DIY a workout headband.
We love this no-slip woven headband tutorial from Goldfish Kiss.

They don’t snag your hair and hold your ponytail high, without bumps, lumps or headaches.
