Exercising with Hair Extensions

It’s that time of year again when everyone is dusting off their trainers and getting ready for summer! Just because you live an active lifestyle, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice wearing hair extensions. Your Great Lengths extensions will suit most lifestyles, but to help you care for them when you’re exercising, here are some tips! We’ve even thrown in a couple of our favourite hairstyles for when you’re working out too…

 Whether you go the gym regularly or casually work out at home, your Great Lengths hair extensions need to be considered. Our first top tip – it’s always really important to cleanse your hair extensions after exercising. We recommend using our Great Lengths Anti-Tap Solution to help restore the PH balance of your scalp (which can be affected by sweat) and protect your bonds.

Having the right hairstyle is important when it comes to a great workout – you don’t want hair in your face. It’s also important when it comes to caring for your hair extensions. Top tip number two – always tie hair back as potential pulling or tugging during exercise can weaken the bonds. That said, a basic ponytail or plait aren’t your only options!
