I don't know about you but I really struggle with keeping my hair soft and clean. I go to the gym most days and so, naturally, I have to wash my hair daily. That's fine, I would rather that than having to deal with greasy hair from working out, but it does mean that when I don't wash my hair for longer than 2-3 days it gets dirty very quickly!
I think I may have cracked some ways to stop the dirt from building so quickly and how to make my hair softer for longer!
1. I find that switching up the shampoo and conditioner that I use makes such a huge difference. I think that when you use the same again and again your hair gets used to it and kind of builds up a tolerance for it! So when I suddenly change the product I use my hair instantly feels so much softer and cleaner.
2. Changing the location for where I shower also has a big impact! I shower in a few different places depending on where I exercise or stay. Whenever I do this I can feel such a difference. This is probably because the showers all have different power and pressure levels so it is a change for my hair and it doesn't get used to the same water at the same pressure.
3. This point is the most substantial option that changes my hair condition drastically so, of course it has to be one of the hardest to do! I have a cold shower. I did read somewhere a while ago that cold showers are good for your body as it stimulates it and keeps your blood flowing well! After I work out, cold showers are the only thing that help me calm down and stop sweating. Otherwise, I'm a complete mess in the changing rooms and that's not nice for anyone! Apparently, cold water on your head also closes your pores and so no sweat and dirt can get into them as easily - reducing the amount of grease getting to your hair in a short period of time!
Fun Fact: The reason that your hair gets greasy the more that you touch it and put your fingers through it is because whenever your hands make contact with your scalp you are actually opening the pores on your head and so allows more dirt to get in!
These are my Fresh Hair Care tips, I take these things into account and adapt them into my lifestyle! I hope this helps to keep your hair squeaky clean for longer!
FYI: In this picture I used my GHD Eclipse straighteners to make my loose curls and Moroccan Oil over the top to smooth and calm my hair!
