....a friend has texted asking if I fancy a run (socially distanced) this evening. I replied saying I’ve just had my hair done and she replied saying “so?”. I don’t really want to go running and my hair get all wet and sweaty a couple of hours after having it done but friend isn’t really getting my just. Would you do exercise or go swimming etc straight after visiting the hairdresser? Would that be a reason for you not to?

Ideally I would arrange it so I wasn't but I wouldn't let it stop me if needs be

GnomeOrMistAndIceGuy Wed 29-Jul-20 17:26:04

God no! My hair only looks lovely when I've had it done so I want to stretch that out for 2 days!!

DariaMorgendorffer Wed 29-Jul-20 17:27:20

Would definitely not want to go! Love the way my hairdresser dries my hair ... always try to get a few days out of it smile

Nope, I want my monies worth

Mrsjayy Wed 29-Jul-20 17:27:58

No I wouldn't go out running or anything bif I had just spent £££s getting my hair done enjoy it till your next wash smile I got my hair done today first in 4 months I'm considering sleeping upright tonight grin

God no! Keep it nice for as long as you can! It never looks the same after you’ve washed it.

“Sorry, want to stay pretty for as long as possible.”

Rollergirl11 Wed 29-Jul-20 17:35:38

Hah hah, so I’m not being a total diva for not wanting to then? I don’t understand why friend doesn’t understand where I’m coming from! 🤷‍♀️

@Mrsjayy yep mine is from before Christmas so I deffo want to get serious mileage out of it.

God no. I don't run anyway. But I definitely wouldn't after a haircut.

Yankathebear Wed 29-Jul-20 17:39:29

I would go!

TinyGringotts Wed 29-Jul-20 17:43:27

I'm a committed runner. Decent weekly mileage, get cranky if I haven't run for a while etc. But no way in heck would I run on hsirdesser day. I am also committed to scheduling runs to suit hairwashing days 🤣🤣🤣

TheOrigBrave Wed 29-Jul-20 17:44:28

I am the "so?" friend!
When I get my hair cut and coloured I always make sure it's still long enough to tie back and ask her not to bother with a blow dry as I'm doing sport later. Then I leave, put my bike helmet on and go home.

I'm not a big exerciser but if I'm planning exercise then I don't do my hair beforehand!

Rollergirl11 Wed 29-Jul-20 17:52:44

Yep exactly, I wasn’t planning on doing any exercise because I’ve had my hair done. Was thinking at a push I might do some tomorrow but failing that definitely Friday and the rest of the week. Just not today!

I would not do anything to jeopardise a colour, cut, and blow dry. Not for days. Especially after months of not having one.

Ponytail doesn’t do the trick for me. Still fucks it up if I sweat.

Pilates, yoga, light weights—all fine. Anything cardio? Nope!

Mental health is as important as physical health.

Mrsjayy Wed 29-Jul-20 17:58:58

Your hair always feels lovely once you bounce out of the hairdressers why anybody would want to sweat on it is beyond me ☺️

CaptainPovey Wed 29-Jul-20 18:02:28


Not spending £££s on lovely hair and it get all manky within hours

KipperTheFrog Wed 29-Jul-20 18:05:07

Wouldn't bother me! But then my hair looks no different after the hairdresser does it. It's always flat and poker straight 😄

Chochito Wed 29-Jul-20 18:06:57

I exercise every day. Today I went to the hairdresser and then directly to the gym. I would go running. But I wouldn't force a friend to go running.

Fluffyslippers01 Wed 29-Jul-20 18:07:32

I would definitely not go!! When I go to the hairdressers I like to get my monies worth and stretch it out for at least 2/3 days!! Any exercise would have to be before the apt or 3 days after 😂 stand your ground OP 💇‍♀️

Ulysses Wed 29-Jul-20 18:10:23

I've just had my hair done and due to a go to a run (doing C25K). It's sitting really nice so this thread has cemented my decision NOT to go!

LtJudyHopps Wed 29-Jul-20 18:12:38

You’re meant to leave it a few days before you wash it again right? So I wouldn’t get it sweaty to make it last as long as possible until the next wash!

damnthatanxiety Wed 29-Jul-20 18:20:03

It's best to not wash your hair for 48 hours after a colour, so...

AnnaSW1 Wed 29-Jul-20 18:20:51

Definitely I'm with you on this one!
