Braid Up! The Ultimate Workout-Friendly Hairstyle

by | July 14, 2022, 22:16 IST


Motivated and all geared up as you hit the gym, you really don’t want anything to stop you. But what about those vexing hair strands that keep tumbling onto your face? When you’re already sweating, things can get awfully sticky and messy. Tackling this is easier than you think: enter sporty boxer braids, the perfect hairstyle if you’re equally passionate about style and working out. High on glamour and comfort, the hairdo is approved by the Kardashians, Katy Perry, Hailey Bieber and company. This is how you can achieve boxer braids in simple steps.

Start by prepping right. You can’t keep your mane away from the dirt and grime that sweaty workouts cause, but you can cleanse your scalp with a clarifying shampoo to ensure minimum build-up on the scalp. Soften your locks with a nourishing conditioner that’s easy on your hair and doesn’t weigh it down. On partially air-dried hair, apply taming elixir for both smoothness and fragrance. Next, divide your hair down the centre into two parts and comb the tresses out well, leaving no knots. Take a section of hair from the hairline and start braiding like you usually would; the trick is to keep adding swatches of hair as you descend. Once you’re off the crown area, braid as usual and secure the plait with a hair tie. Apply some more of that elixir on your mane and across your braids.

PS: If you’re tight on time, Prep your hair with dry shampoo
