If you’re a morning gym go-er then you’re well used to the effort it takes to look presentable again after a good (read sweaty) session.

And sometimes, when you’re in a real rush, there just isn’t time to wash and blow dry your hair. Enter dry shampoo.

Yes, it’s been a trusty staple in most beauty bags for a while now and pretty much saves the day more often than you’d probably like to admit.

But did you know, that this hair-saviour can actually make your gym days so much easier.

Turns out, if you know you’re going to be pressed for time, you should be using dry shampoo before you go to the gym.

When applied and rubbed into your roots before you work out, it actually works to soak up perspiration, according to Her, meaning your hair will hopefully be easier to fix up when done.

Of course, this hair hack can only go so far. It’s not recommended to use it on a regular basis because it could lead to irritation on your scalp, and clogged pores.

Not something you want. But yay to getting ready quicker tomorrow morning.
