I do not play about my hair. If I get it done; I want it to last for more than eight hours at least. Meaning, I want people to see how good my hair looks.
Sometimes, though, it’s hard to keep a hair style when your constantly working out.
Every time I get my hair done, I know the moment I workout – my hair will start curling up at the edges and it completely messes up the style. It’s because I’m natural which means sometimes my real hair will curl up against the ‘straight extensions’. So the problem is – that right after I workout my natural curly hairs start taking their form and curling up.
A simple solution for this is wrapping my hair. Which means covering my real hair with some kind of scarf while I workout. Not only is that uncomfortable while working out, but it doesn’t guarantee that my hair will not curl up. I think the best solution would be to wear my hair in braids for a while. But for what I’m trying to do out side of work, I need to actually have my hair look somewhat straightened.
So you see my dilemma here. My dilemma is so real that I haven’t been to the gym all week because I just wanted to preserve the ‘do’ for as long as possible. But that ends today because I plan on getting a nice good sweat at the gym. It’s very possible that my hair will look a hot ass mess. But I’ll work on that to try to make it look somewhat presentable for work.
Really, I just need to find some kind of balance. Perhaps when I do get my hair done initially not work out for the first three days and then go hard for the next four and keep that kind of schedule?
Does anyone else out there have this problem? Want to preserve the hairstyle but the gym doesn’t really let you. I tell you what. I follow Massy daily and her hair always looks good every time she works out. Now, I’m not sure if she’s getting her hair done everyday or what she’s doing to keep her hair looking right. But I believe she’s natural like me. The only difference is, she has short hair and wears it short but I also think she has a different texture so – that’s another blog where I will break down hair.
So how do you guys cope with this?
Is it even a problem?
