Dealing with sweaty hair doesn't have to mean washing it!

Sweaty hair happens to everyone, and the go-to response is usually to wash it and start over with clean tresses. However, over-washing your hair can lead to dryness and damage, and sometimes sudsing up just isn't an option. So, how can you deal with sweaty hair sans shampoo?

1/ Headbands

If you're heading for a workout, a hike, or even just some poolside sunbathing, wearing a headband is a great way to keep your hair off your face and protect most of it from getting sweaty in the first place. Combine it with a bun, ponytail or braided updo for a cute yet very effective sweat-proof look.

2/ Textured Hairstyles

Wearing your hair with a textured, wavy finish is a really easy way to lift sweaty hair at the root and keep it full of movement. After applying dry shampoo, spritz your hair with a heat protectant and use a 1" curling iron to make waves through the lengths of your hair. After curling, shake your fingers through your hair to break it up a bit, and finish with hairspray.

3/ Dry Shampoo

Last but by no means least, you should never underestimate the power of dry shampoo when reviving lank, sweaty strands. It refreshes your roots and lifts lackluster strands off the scalp, which can make a world of difference. It'll also add some grip to your hair, which makes both braids and updos a lot easier to style.
