How do women players and athletes care for their hair?

By Charles Hopkins Published 08/31/2006 | Beauty

Are only short haircuts exclusively fitting with the athletes profile? She cannot really think of fashion and pretty styles; do you too think in the same way?

Women players can also care for their hair and in every sense they can even do well with long hair. These are simply myths that female players distinctively put off whatever is feminine and tend to be more macho in both behavior and style. Dont they have sentiments? Arent they more sensible? Then how come they are isolated from the world of fashion and style?

The issue should be that female athletes should be concerned with their hairstyles and hair care techniques. They are involved in rigorous physical activities and in their hair dirt and dust and excess moisture can easily get penetrated down to the roots and accumulate on the scalp. This is one of the main causes of hair damage. 

Now for players keeping their hair short and clean is a game rule. Now for the fair sex the length of the hair can exceed but the cleaning factor cannot be excluded. Oiling, moisturizing, shampooing and conditioning are the key aspects of caring for your hair too and beyond those, the styles matter which you can really do as you feel in your very own way.

As a woman whatever be your area of sports, when you are in the game field you cant allow your hair to create a fuss for you. If your hair is of middle length, you can either tie tight plats or a tight ponytail lifted higher. This helps you to keep your neck area free from hair touching and prevents it from over sweating.

You might argue that if players will not shed sweat then who will? You are correct! But if hair intensifies the problem, you have to think of a justified solution to protect both your hair and physical comfort. Nothing should deviate your concentration, be it your hair or anything else.

If you lift your hair and use elastic broad bands made of towel-like cotton cloth, both your hair is kept tight not getting any chance to fall in your eyes and also your sweat is easily absorbed.

Also keep yourself cool with a double plaited hairstyle that helps to keep your thick and long hair organized while you play. What you carefully do is divide the hair in two parts and with each equal part tie up the plaits neatly without leaving any hair out. The small lines and thin fibers of hair can be clipped along the sides. Even after this if you are uncertain that hair might disturb you in the peak hour of the game, give the final touch of your hair setting with an elastic band round the top of your forehead.

Well dont create another mythical strand that being an athlete only means double-braided or double-plaited hairstyles and round or u-shaped haircuts. If not they will look identical to men at least in matters related to hair style and hair dressing.

No such fixed doctrines on female players can be issued regarding their hair care concern because world famous tennis players and athletes went up and up in the ladder of success with superb styles most feminine as identified, the layer and step cuts, someone with lovely curls and many with straight silky long brown hair. What will you propose now?
