Sydney McLaughlin, USA Athletics

Professional styling gel styler

“I like my hair to hang out of my face because I want to focus on running, so I wear it in a ponytail and use Eco Style Olive Oil Gel ($ 12) daily. While my hair is still damp, I use a firm hairbrush to get the shape. Then I go in with the gel, putting a handful in my hands, rubbing them together, and using my fingers to get it through my hair. I brush it one last time, then put on the elastics. Although the gel is really strong and keeps my hair in place, I also like that it is made for curls and that it has a little more humidity. ” – @ sydneymclaughlin16


Brooke Roboutou, USA Sport climbing

BOING Curl Leave-In

“I like to wear my hair in two Dutch or French braids for competitions because it’s fun and a bit more styled. I use Unite Boing Curl Leave-In Conditioner ($ 28) every time I shower, and sometimes in the morning, to define and straighten my really long hair. I will spray it all over when my hair is wet and then shake my hair out to help [define] buckles. I will also reapply it when my hair is in braids if I have a lot of flyaways. I like it to be a spray because I can’t get residue on my hands when I climb. “- @ brookeclimbs

Alix Klineman, USA Beach Volleyball

Tres Two Extra Firm Control Aero unscented hairspray

As far back as I can remember, I have played with my hair in a high ponytail. My hair is [naturally] thick and curly, so I like to use TRESemmé TRES Two Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray ($ 6) because I need a strong hairspray that can withstand the sweat, wind, and movement of beach volleyball. At the end of a match, I’m always surprised that my ponytail is still in good shape. “- @ alixklineman
