Work out or a good hair day?
Have you ever woken up in the morning feeling all pumped before spin class only to realize that you’ll need your edges to behave that day as well? We’re sure you often beat yourself up about having to go with either one or the other.
Point to remember sisters is that it’s important to focus on your physical health as that definitely reflects in your overall well-being. This includes your precious tresses! So no more avoiding the gym like a plague. Follow these simple steps to do both, have a kickass workout and rock a good hair day.
Wearing your hair in any protective style like braids, Bantu knots or even cornrows will make sure that it stays off your face and neck and doesn’t get in the way of your work out. We know how annoying that can be, girl! Yoga gal, pilates gal or even a cross-fit gal! Whatever your preference might be, choose your hairstyle according to your workout. Opt for cornrows or braids if yoga is your style as it will keep your hair out of your face and at the same time, you can comfortably lay your head down. For high-intensity workouts like cross-fit, opt for a high bun or a high ponytail. Make sure you let your hair loose post the work out to air it out. But make sure your hair is well moisturized before setting out on your preferred style. Use a product such as African Pride Moisture Miracle Coconut Oil & Baobab Oil Leave-In Cream which comes power packed with the added benefits of coconut and baobab to keep the frizz at bay.
This trick is hands-down gold and there is nothing such as too much deep conditioning. But you may ask, “Using a conditioner before a workout?” Sounds off, doesn’t it? Nah-ah! We’re telling you that using a deep conditioning treatment before a workout can do wonders to your hair. Just use a dollop of African Pride Moisture Miracle Moroccan Clay & Shea Butter Heat Activated Masque and apply using your fingers, then moving onto a comb to evenly distribute the product. Then tie your hair up in a bun or cover it up with a scarf before your work out session. The heat activated during the workout will further activate the moisturizing elements in shea butter and Moroccan clay. Really getting them to work their magic while you build that booty. Once done, all you have to do is rinse out!
