Maintain Your Hair During Exercising
A study conducted by the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, in Winston-Salem, N.C., suggested that 31% of the 103 African-American women surveyed admitted that they exercise less because it may harm their hairstyle, according to a study released in November, 2007. All of the women studied agreed that it is important to lead a healthy life, which includes exercise. Exercise is especially important because of diabetes, hypertension, and complications due to obesity, including heart disease.
If you are going to the gym or for a run make sure to use an elastic holder covered in cloth and a holder without a metal clasp to avoid ripping your hair. If your hair is too short to pull back in a pony tail wrap your hair up with a scarf. Place a sweat band at your hairline to keep sweat out of your eyes. So us naturals and loc wearers we don't have to worry about messing up our hair during exercise :D
Enjoy the freedom(✿◠‿◠)
