Gym Hair was started as project to solve a problem I was having: working out followed by the need to run eleventy errands afterwards. Toting 2 toddlers, there was swim school, then Target, then the drive-thru Chick-Fil-A, etc. etc. etc. My hair was yuck. Wet with sweat, stuck in a bun or pony til 8 or 9pm when I could finally shower. One day I ran my fingers through and sniffed (Mary Katherine Gallagher style) and eww. I grabbed a wet wipe and quickly rubbed my scalp. Surely there was something out there that targeted sweaty hair? There was not. So I made it. After months and months of research and trial and error, I came up with a natural solution using essential oils and some tried and true ingredients like Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera. I spoke to my dermatologist, who said "Go for it!". I went ahead and hired a couple chemists to help with the stuff I didn't know, how to blend it properly and how to give it shelf life, along with recommendations on other ingredients that would help the hair and scalp. The response has been overwhelming and it seems we are definitely on to something. We hope you love Gym Hair as much as our family does!
