So we’ve got world renowned, celebrity hair stylist Errol Douglas back for another installment of Ask An Expert after an email from Nancy, a Bikram yoga aficionado which Errol is a fan of himself so there’d naturally be no better person to answer:
“I will be attending Bikram teacher training which requires two classes a day, 6 days a week for 9 weeks. I wanted to know if there are any tips on how to treat my hair during that period. I currently have relaxed shoulder length hair. I relax once ever 12 weeks and wash bi-monthly. I moisturize daily with castor and coconut oil and do not like silicones”.
Yoga sessions are actually a good time to hydrate the hair on the go. As the movement is smooth enough to create enough heat without too much perspiration, putting on a light leave-in conditioner and showering it off after class will really keep the hair in top condition. Naturally we need hair out of our eyes during exercise but be careful not to created ponytails or top knots with too much tension, cumulatively it can cause breakage. Use bungee clips or soft material bands that are snag free, use just enough tension to keep hair off the face but within that as loose as is practical.
Got a skin, hair or any other dilemma? Email me and I’ll forward your question over to an expert to answer!
