Nearly everyone is planning on hitting the gym to start crushing their New Year health resolution. You wonder that How to exercise while wearing hair extensions. The article below will help you answer this question.
Let go of the got gel
Lot’s of people love to use Gel as a lace adhesive to hold their frontals and closures down. This gel is super sticky and dries similar to glue. It dissolves with water and is easy to remove at home. The only issue is, it dissolves with water. Your frontal might be laid and slayed when you leave your house, but as soon as you break a sweat while working hard in the gym, the gel breaks and your lace will start to lift. We all know lifting lace is a huge no-no.
Try using a waterproof lace bond like Ghost Bond or Cling. To achieve a gym-proof hold, apply two layers of adhesive. The first layer should be thin. Remember, less is always best when it comes to lace glue. Use a blow dryer on the cool setting to dry the adhesive to a tacky texture. Then proceed to apply a second layer of adhesive, and dry until tacky. Apply your lace to the adhesive, and try to avoid touching the wet lace with your fingers.Once the adhesive completely dries, you are all set to give it your all in the gym.
Got leave out?
Product, product, product! Having leave-out can be super tricky, but with the proper product, you can prevent hair reversion. Try using Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant pomade on your leave-out before straightening it. This balm works wonders, especially on natural hair. The balm is formulated with castor oil and rice bran oil to repel moisture from your hair. A little goes a long way, so use a pea-sized amount and emulsify in your hand before application. Apply to damp hair before blow drying.
Use a wig cap
If you wear a frontal or lace front wig, adhering a wig cap under your wig can prevent sweat ruining your style. First, find a wig cap that is as close to your skin tone as possible. Cut the band off the wig cap and adhere the cap in front of your hairline. Once it dries, you can apply your wig or frontal as usual. If you usually don’t sweat a lot, using a wig cap can prevent sweat from reaching the lace.

If you’re a gym junkie, you may have the desire to wash your hair more often to remove sweat and odor. Using shampoo that is too harsh can dry out your extensions and decrease the life of your hairstyle. It is super imperative to use quality products on your hair.
