Tips For Saving Your Hair During A Jazz Dance Session

Posted on: 6 August 2016


You might have the best intentions of going to a jazz dance class during your lunch hour. However, you might not feel like you have the time to go to the class, get a decent workout in, and then shower and restore your hair to its former glory. This could cause you to choose to not go to the class at all. Here are some tips for making sure that you are able to save your hair from being ruined by your workout so that you don't talk yourself out of it.

1. Add Dry Shampoo Ahead of Time

Before you even go near the dance room, go into the locker room and thoroughly spray your hair with dry shampoo. The purpose of the dry shampoo is to soak up any sweat that might form on your head before it makes its way into your hair. Scrunch the dry shampoo with your hands a little bit to make sure that it is thoroughly mixed in. Then, take your class. You should emerge from your workout with hair that looks almost as good as it did before your workout.

2. Salvage Without Washing

Another option is to get your hair up and out of the way while you are dancing your heart out and then head straight for the locker room when you are done, armed with a blow dryer. While you are in the locker room, take your blow dryer and dry all of the sweat that is left in your hair. Your hair will still likely look depleted. If it looks greasy, try adding a little bit of dry shampoo. Then, style it as you normally would.

If you have a pixie cut or short hair in general, consider spraying down your hair so that its moist all over, rinsing out some of the sweat, and then blowing drying and styling your hair as normal.

When you are done, take some scented lotion and put it near your hairline and behind your ears. This will allow you to cover up any scent that you might have leftover from your workout.

3. Focus on Less Sweaty Workouts

Try a less sweaty dance routine. If you genuinely cannot take your jazz dance class and restore your hair in the allotted time, you should consider seeing what other classes are available. Try to find a dance class that utilizes slow, controlled movements that build and stretch your muscles, rather than classes that require you to dance at a frenetic pace. This will allow you to build strength and burn calories without getting super sweaty.
