Hair Extension Blog/5 Tips for Wearing Hair Extensions at the Gym

Can I Work Out In WEST COAST HAIR Soft Bond Strands™ Hair Extensions?

Yes, you can! And here are my best 5 tips to keep your hair extensions looking and feeling gorgeous at the gym, during and after your workout!

For most obvious reasons, working out is a good thing. It keeps your body strong, your heart healthy and helps you to love longer. (Well, that is supposed to be live but I couldn't change it because if you live longer, you can love longer, too.)

And I know you're doing this for all the smart reasons for your body, your mind, your health…

But, you want your hair to look good too, right? Yes, yes and another, yes, yes! (Or 2.)

5 Tips To Keep Your Hair Extensions Looking Great Post Workout And At The Gym

  • Brush and detangle extension hair: Before your workout, be sure your extensions are tangle free.
  • Tie it up, or braid your ends: During your workout, it is great to get your hair away from your face and safe from getting caught in and around equipment while you work-out. Be sure you take this hair down from a bun or ponytail once it gets sweaty & wet.
  • Cool-dry your roots: Wet hair at the attachment and scalp should be dried loose. A cool setting on a hair dryer and a quick zap at the scalp will help your hair feel clean.
  • ​Powder your roots: A light powder or dry shampoo will work wonders to freshen up your hair and hair extensions once you are finished with your work-out at home or the gym.
  • ​​Run a hot iron through your ends: A quick hot iron to tame frizzies or touch up waves and curls might take 10 minutes but will offer wonderful results that last all day. Be sure to use Tiffany's 3D Fix Luxury Hair Oil for your heat protection and wonderful sheen and shine to produce beautiful dimension in your hair and for your hair extensions.

What Are My Gym Client's Saying About Soft Bond Strands™ Hair Extensions?

Here are my top 5 statements about this working out - my own experience (I'm mostly into the hot tub & steam room type of work-out) and those my clients share with me (and we have some amazing bodies coming in to see us, they are working hard!!)

  • I’ve been working out and washing my hair 5 days a week and my extensions are holding up great!"
  • I sweat so much so my bonds get pretty soft and sticky when I work out but I shampoo really well like you tell me to, and then rinse really well, too, and, lo and behold! my extensions look, and feel, great again!"
  • I am in the sauna for an hour a day 3 times a week and I wore my full set of extensions for 7 months without losing more than 2 the whole time!"
  • I am a biker and a swimmer. I just tie my hair in a loose braid and afterwards, let it dry loose and I’ve never had a problem!"
  • ​​I am a competition body builder and this extension stands up to all of my rigorous routines. WEST COAST HAIR is the best!"
