A: Your hair is your crown and glory, but remember that your body is your temple. You should never let your strands dictate your right to be healthy. Besides, the biggest misconception about exercising is that you cant achieve a productive workout or burn calories without sweating. Girl, bye! The only reason for sweating during a workout is to cool the body down. With that in mind try not get caught up in the hype that exercising will ruin your do’, and focus more on your fitness goals because Juicy has the skinny on four hair tips and products that will help preserve your strands while you get it right, get it tight.
1. Opt for high ponytails or low bun styles, this way your hair is kept away from your face and neck and does not get wet from perspiration. If your hair is not long enough for a ponytail, use bobby pins to pin-up the hair around your hairline and nape.
2. Braid or twist your hair into sections pre-workout, and if your lifestyle permits, keep the braids or twist in overnight. The nextmorning take them down for a natural curly or wavy style. Repeat next workout. This is a perfect routine for anyone planning to exercise multiple days a week.
3. Be cautious of wearing cotton sweatbands, as the friction and constant rubbing can lead to hair breakage and thinning along the hairline. Instead protect your strands with a satin hair wrap. Try Spartan’s Stay On Satin Wrap Cap, $4, Walgreens.
4. Post-workout use a dry shampoo to soak up excess moisture from your roots. Try Kevin Murphy’s Fresh Hair Dry Cleaning Spray, 6.7 oz, $20, sleekhair.com. And tame those edges down with Organic Root Stimultor Olive Oil Edge Control, 2.25 oz, $5, Walgreens.
Now that you have the hair deets, you better hit the gym and werkkkk it out!Related Posts
