It has been proven that you should never underestimate the power of a good blowout. That being said, sometimes maintaining a blowout requires sacrifices that blow dry bar regulars aren’t willing to make. A sweaty spinning class or hot yoga session gets your endorphins revved up at the cost (literally) of deflating perfect bouncy strands, and at a certain point there is only so much dry shampoo can do. Finally, there is a way you can workout and protect your hair!

Banishing sweat during a workout may sound like a fantasy, but scalp Botox, a new trending service, does just that. The Botox, which is injected into the scalp, works by temporarily blocking the neurotransmitter which controls the nerve signals and stimulates sweat glands. Botox has long been FDA-approved as a successful cure for a condition called hyperhidrosis, which involves excessive underarm sweating. Doctors are now applying Botox’s sweat wicking properties to a new place, solving the problem blowout enthusiasts who love a good workout face.  

While the procedure involves 150 to 200 injections, the process only takes 20 minutes, and since the scalp doesn’t contain many nerve endings, pain is never an issue. Results can be expected to last anywhere from six to 12 months, depending on the individual. Reduced frizz has been reported as a side effect while hair loss has not. In fact, this procedure is also in the process of being tested as a solution which treats hair loss.
