The commute to work is itself a struggle. As if that’s not enough, it has a way of psyching you out so early in the morning when you get to the office and find that you’ve lost the freshness you strove to achieve. Not only does your skin look sweaty, your hair has become unruly and frizzy, or greasy and clumpy—and you’re stuck with the latter for the rest of the day. There’s a way to keep hair looking and feeling fresh even after your commute, though. Here’s what you need to do:
1. Use micellar shampoo.
Micellar shampoo exists, and much like the skincare essential micellar water, it unclogs your scalp of oil and dirt using a gentle formula that's suitable for everyday use. Pantene Micellar Shampoo does exactly that: It detoxifies your scalp from micro-impurities and grease, so hair is smooth, soft, and fresh the whole day—no wonder it's the Best Shampoo winner in this year's Cosmo Summer Beauty Bucket List.
2. Use conditioner on the ends of your hair only.
If your hair gets greasy fast, don't condition the roots—the product and oil build-up on your scalp will make your hair feel dirty when you commute and as the day progresses. Instead, simply condition the ends to keep your tresses nourished.
3. Avoid touching your hair.
Running your fingers through your hair adds volume and easily keeps stray strands off your face. But if your hands are sweaty or oily, you're transferring moisture onto your hair. Once your tresses accumulate dirt and grime, they'll fall flat and start to clump. To keep hair neat and away from your face when you're on the go, pin the sides with a cute barrette.
4. Brush your hair, but don’t overdo it.
Brushing your hair distributes the natural oil your scalp produces to the ends of your hair—this is a good thing if your strands are dry. But if you brush too frequently without cleaning your hair tool, you're piling on dirt, dead skin cells, oil, and product residue onto your tresses, making them feel gross. Post-commute, use a clean brush to fix your hair.
