Keeping Hair Straight When Sweating?

HateRelationshipHateRelationship Posts: 100Registered Users
Hey guys! I exercise every day, but when I go to the gym, I have no control over temperature.

So, for girls that also exercise or sweat a lot, how do you keep your hair when exercising?
I'm growing my hair from chin length to mid-thigh length!

    No one answered you!

    Let me take a stab... Honestly, I just throw my hair up into a messy bun on top of my head. That way it's off my neck so it's not getting the sweat from there. I also try to workout before I do my hair in the morning, but I would say maybe spray it with an anti-humidity hair spray (for the sweating) and then just redo pieces that need it afterwards.

    Hope that helps!

    I do the same as russianprncss, apart from I do a very secure bun or pony.
    I also throw on a bandana or sweat band, or even a cute but wide/thick headband.
    Just keep the hair as tight as possible, without being badly tight of course. I just try and keep it stretched.
