despite doing hair and beauty for a living, there are plenty of times when we don’t have the time or energy to wash & style our hair before heading out the door. this is especially true when gym days overlap with salon days. which is exactly what inspired this week’s blog & video: everybody needs a few HAIR HACKS to get them through the work week!
watch the video, reach the blog, and learn this week’s HAIR HACK: how to have PERFECT HAIR even after the gym.
PSSSST... want the products in this video? head over here to snag them.
life happens fast, but you should never have to sacrifice PERFECT HAIR. to illustrate that point, we’re going to show you how veronica keeps her hair FLAWLESS after a visit to the gym, even when it hasn’t been washed for 3 or 4 days. in fact- she even let it get dirtier than normal!
from this point- she’s headin’ to the gym. afterward, she’s going to show you how to REFRESH your STYLE and get PERFECT HAIR after the gym WITHOUT WASHING your hair.
first things first- you need to PROTECT the styling you’ve already done to your hair. which means you need a TRACELESS HAIR TIE. these hair ties are going to be your BEST FRIEND. not only do they hold your hair in place, they don’t leave the damage a normal hair tie can do to your hair.
snag your invisitie on our website.
then you need to WASH YOUR FACE. you’re skin needs to be able to breathe, especially when you’re working out. ALWAYS wash your face before heading to the gym.
before we dive any further, it’s worth noting that the products you use in your hair have a lot of power over your wash times and how often you need to wash your hair. look for SULFATE FREE products and turn to natural solutions at every corner. we only use nvenn products. even after a few days of not washing our hair, we don’t have any grit or build up on the hair. if you’re using products that leave a buildup or residue on your hair, you’re going to experience a lot of grease and dirt in the hair.
after 45 minutes of hard cardio at the gym, it’s time to refresh her HAIR and MAKEUP.
after taking her hair down, veronica’s hair is a more relaxed version of the curls she started with.
first things first, we need to make sure that all of the hair is dry. you have 2 options:
in veronica’s case, she’s letting her hair dry on its own. DO NOT start putting products into damp hair.
once the hair is all dry- you’re ready to start the REFRESH.
after a heavy workout, veronica’s hair is very greasy. to fix that problem, we’re using nvenn’s ‘clean’. this DRY SHAMPOO will get rid of the grease and wet-look while DEODORIZING and ABSORBING excess oil in the hair.
simply sprinkle this powder throughout the hair. keep in mind that LESS IS MORE, and you don’t need a ton of it to absorb the oil out of your hair. massage it throughout the hair and the product will be completely INVISIBLE. if you still see any powder in your hair, you need to continue to rub the hair until it is completely absorbed.
STEP 2: we use nvenn’s protect. this is actually a heat shield product, BUT we have a LOT of people who love to use this as a HAIR PERFUME- ourselves included. spray it throughout your hair to CUT ANY SMELL from your hair. all our products are scented with ESSENTIAL OILS, rather than using any harmful chemicals to fragrance the hair. keep it natural, friends!
veronica’s hair is still a bit poofier than she’d like it to be. to help TAME HER STYLE and SMOOTH her wave, we’re using nvenn’s ‘smooth’. this SPLIT END MENDER and FRIZZ TAMER helps cement the style.
put a small portion on your hands and MASSAGE it gently throughout the hair. it’s INVISIBLE and LIGHTWEIGHT while helping to smooth the style and ADD SHINE.
now we’re ready for the LAST STEP!
last but not least- we’re using nvenn’s ‘fix’. this FLEXIBLE HOLDING HAIRSPRAY is a lightweight spray that is AWESOME side kick when you’re changing the texture of your hair. spray it throughout your hair to add a little TEXTURE and FINISH your style.
now she just has to touch up her makeup and she’s ready to walk out the door.
this SIMPLE ROUTINE is the perfect way to extend your style and delay wash day.
if you’re wearing makeup, you’ll also want to make sure that you wash your face after the gym. do not put on makeup without washing your face. veronica’s doing a quick and simple face:
if you want your hair a little more RELAXED, turn your head over and shake!
