Can I work out with my hair extensions?

“Clients often ask, CoCo there’s no way I can put hair extensions put in my hair, I work out everyday and the sweat will just mess them up. CoCo hear’s  this all the time so we thought we’d answer this hair extensions question. Just because you live an active lifestyle, it doesn’t exclude you from wearing hair extensions. In fact, you can run a marathon while looking good with great hair.  It’s all about the placement of the hair and proper installation and care. With those, your hair extensions can withstand any intense workout.

As far as the temporary extensions like clip ins CoCo suggests that even though working out with Clip-Ins is certainly possible, it’s a bit unnecessary. Clip-Ins are easy to install and remove, so there’s really no need to work out with them.

When working out you should avoid slippage. The very first thing you should do is make sure your hair isn’t touching your forehead or your neck, a high ponytail or bun are ideal. Elastic band ponytail holders and workout headbands are a great idea to keep your hair away from these places. When styling your hair for the gym, don’t pull too hard. Obviously, pulling on your hair will also pull the the tracks, bonds, tape, or beads, creating extra stress on them which could lead to slippage. Whatever hairstyle you prefer for your daily workout, make sure it’s loose enough to allow your hair to breathe. Hairstyles that are too tight can trap in excess sweat and moisture, another cause of slippage and frizz. When swimming wear a swimming cap to stop frizz before it starts. You might hate wearing a cap, but you’re going to hate your frizzy, tangled extensions even more if you don’t wear one.  . Remember that chlorinated water doesn’t mesh well with hair extensions.
