Gym-Proof Your Locks: How abyssian solves your post workout hair challenges

There are so many positives from going to the gym, from an improved physique to the multitude of mental benefits it offers.

But there is one little thing that seems to get in the way, and that’s the sweat, tangles and frizz that comes along with a good, pumping workout. It’s not as easy as grabbing just any shampoo or conditioner to help magically wash away the aftermath.

Thankfully, abyssian has thought one step ahead for you, providing you with luxury, hair-care packed with nutrients that’ll protect your hair from exercise-related damage and letting you workout worry-free.

We’ve listed them all down below so you can find the perfect fit of products for you.

Sweat, Scalp Irritation, Dandruff & Oil Build-up

One of the most noticeable post workout hair woes is the excessive sweat build up. This can make your scalp damp and begin to irritate it. Additionally, sweat contains salt and minerals that can dry out the scalp and hair.

What to use: Pre-shampoo Clay Mask & Sunday Detox Exfoliating Shampoo 

How it works: Made with French blue clay & aloe vera extracts that absorbs excessive oil and de-clogs the scalp from dead skin build up, the abyssian Pre-Shampoo Clay Mask is the answer to giving you clean and bouncy hair, the perfect way to start your post workout hair care routine.

The Sunday Detox Exfoliating Shampoo is salt-based shampoo scrub that gently exfoliates and removes itchiness and flakiness while getting rid of build-up in the hair and scalp. Perfect for all hair types - ideal for those with oily and dandruff-prone hair.

This abyssian product works wonders to cleanse and reset your hair to its optimal state.

Frizz & dryness, damage & hair tangles


Lots of sweating can cause hair to frizz, especially for those with curly or wavy hair. Vigorous workouts can also cause tangled hair, particularly if it's long. This can be painful and lead to hair breakage, if not treated correctly.

What to use: Super Repair shampoo and conditioner  & Super-gloss serum

How it works: The Super Repair shampoo and conditioner is the perfect duo for cleansing the scalp without stripping it of its natural oils, replenishing and repairing split ends and stabilizing bonds in the keratin structure of hair.

Harnessing the power of the ancient Mediterranean crop extract Abyssinian oil (packed with omegas & antioxidants), our Super Gloss hair serum creates a protective lubricating layer on the cuticles for added shine and moisture-retention,  making hair stronger and allowing you to brush through your hair seamlessly, preventing hair loss from brushing breakage by up to 93%.

If you: Exercise outdoors

UV protection for your hair is just as important as it is for your skin, and if left unprotected, can leave you with damaged and dry tresses. It’s never too late to start preventing gradual sun damage for your hair by incorporating a simple few steps.

What to Use: UV + Pollution Duo Shield

How it works: Packed with Polluclear (a sugar based extract that forms an invisible shield against UV light and airborne pollution), our UV + Pollution Duo Shield is the perfect match for you if you exercise outdoors. It’s an extra clean 97% natural formula and packed with a superfood blend to help protect your hair from nasties whilst nourishing and hydrating it.  

Thinning hair

Intense workouts combined with a restrictive diet can lead to nutritional deficiencies,  resulting in hair thinning or shedding. Although cute, tight ponytails or buns can also cause hairfall and weaken your hair over time.

What to use: Well Ageing Routine set

How it works: Packed with fermented rice water (which helps healthy hair follicle growth) and Indian gooseberry (a natural DHT blocker known to reduce shedding), the Well Ageing Routine Set is specifically designed to keep your hair strong, voluminous and encourage healthy hair growth.

Additionally, if you have a mix of different concerns, feel free to mix and match the products to your liking. All abyssian products work in tandem with each other.
