Now that it’s hot and sticky out, we go from dry cold rooms and skin and poles that we slide off of, to hot sweaty sticky slippy poles that we slide off of. Ah, the joys of being a pole dancer.
The one question that comes up, without fail, all the time, in every pole dance forum I’ve ever visited, in every class I’ve ever been in, is: What do I do about my sweaty hands?
This is what you do about your sweaty hands.
You put it on- a nickel-sized dollop, spread on the palms and fingers of your hand, a half an hour before you pole. If that doesn’t work well enough, put it on an hour before you pole, and another application half an hour before you pole. It will keep your hands from sweating. If you need grip, then use your favorite grip aid (Dry Hands, Grrrip, iTac, whatever tickles your fancy) on top of it.
I am almost shocked at how many people don’t know about Tite Grip because it completely changed my pole life and everyone I know who uses it the same way I do (PRIOR to poling, not during, so that it has time to really take effect) feels the same way. Using vinegar (on my hands or the pole), using prescription strength antiperspirant lotion at night, using climber’s chalk, all of that helped but didn’t solve the underlying problem: my hands are sweaty. Whatever else I used, would never last an entire song. If you don’t have very sweaty hands, those other products may work for you and it doesn’t hurt to give them a try.
Sample sizes are also available. You can buy from Tite Grip’s website directly by clicking here. Good luck!
