Step 1: Start with second-day hair and braid into a french braid before the gym.

Step 2: When done with your workout, take out the braid and blow dry upside down to get rid of any sweat that may create moisture.

Step 3: Once hair feels dry and braid waves have been mussed, flip head back over and spray all over with dry shampoo.

Step 4: Dust roots with loose hair powder to create lift and grit. Spray all of hair lightly with light hold hairspray. Add a flirty headband if you want.
