Running hairstyles for those with long hair!

I am training for a HM and usually get up scrape my hair into a low ponytail but I find my neck gets sweaty that way.

Can anyone reccommend a hairstyle for running that will stay in and is easy to do?

    Have you tried a ponytail higher up?  I have waist length hair and tend to put it in a high ponytail but put 3 hair bands in, one at the top, middle and near the bottom to make sure it stays put and not be a pain to brush afterwards.

    Neck still gets sweaty though, sorry!

    Hi Crimson - not at all trivial! I really struggle as if i don't have it fixed into place it will cause knots that are literally impossible to get out. I've found the following work:

    - Tight bun: Put the hair into a ponytail, curl around into a bun and fix with a band/grips

    - French plait/braids: Start from the top of the head and work down.

    I've also found that when i had shorter hair - i could put it in a hat and keep it out of the way - but if anyone has better suggestions - i'd love to hear them as well!

  • You supposed to be sweaty in a race you Bint. No offence.
  • i kinda agree with NLR...i mean c'mon people..think for yourselves a little?

  • Yeah loulababes. It's like, my lungs are burning, my legs are like jelly, my heart is pounding so hard it hurts BUT......oooh my ponytail is sweaty..........pooohhh. If you can worry about flappy hair you aint working too hard -PAH!!

    I have no issue getting sweaty but my issue is that when i run and I don't put my hair in a bun/french plait the knots are impossible to remove. My bun fell loose during saturdays race and i had to cut out a bit of hair because i couldnt get the knot out.

  • exactly. either you want to run 13.1 miles.....or you dont.

  • I have never wanted you more Loula xx

  • maybe we are being too harsh....apologies Crimson, just feeling tough todayimage

  • Maddo?
  • try spraying your hair with detangler or conditioner before the race? then tying it up? may help?image

  • Always a high ponytail for me, in summer I'll have a cap/visor or sweatband to keep the shorter bits out of my face.

    It is not during but after that is the issue who wants to spend hours post run combing your hair? Who has time to be honest?

    Detangler sounds good.  I'm no ultra runner but I hate the detangling after a race, whatever the distance!

  • A bit harsh but sometimes we need a "man up" post. Sorry Loula has was a bit bitchy xx

    I found dry shampoo works quite well for this.

    What detangler and dry shampoo do you recommend? I've tried aussi but it made my hair really greasy.

  • I love Loula for being being fluffy and she loves my gruffaloeness. We must remeber to play our parts.
  • i use Gliss spray in/leave in conditioner..doesnt go greasy. my hair is very long but quite fine..my daughter had aussie and it made her hair greasy too emmyb
