working out


It’s officially “get that body tight” season. With swimsuits and vacations quickly approaching, hitting the gym is a priority for many women. Straight styles, especially on unrelaxed hair, usually succumb to the power of going hard on the elliptical while rocking out to a workout playlist, and can also have a big impact and big curls. Here are ways to keep your hair as smooth and fabulous as possible while getting your workout on.

  • Take Care Those Edges/Hairline

    Most of these “gym hair solutions” will cause your edges to bald so be careful on the tightness of your hairstyle and how much gel you place on your edges to “look good” at the gym, cause when you leave the gym your edges may not be “looking good”.

  • Who’s that lady

    I also wear my hair pin curled when I’m at the gym

    MN needs better researchers and better writers. Strength training can make you sweat as much as you would from doing cardio if done correctly. Using gels and creams prior to working out can cause a woman to develop acne in the scalp from the mixture of sweat and extra junk. The pores need to be open to allow for better circulation as the body transitions. Wraps can restrict flow, nor do they keep one’s hair from getting wet from sweat. It just centralizes the location of sweat to area of the head that’s covered. The best thing to do is to plan to spend some time washing, conditioning, and styling your hair properly after a good workout. Your scalp, face, and hair will benefit better in the end.

      ITA….. I was thinking applying all that product and mixing it with sweat and other products already on your hair is no bueno and yes strength training will have you perspiring. I either pin my hair up in a loose way or ponytail it or when it was shorter just let it hang.

    What grown woman would need a lesson on what to do with her hair at a gym? You made it all these years without that common sense.

    Ape women hair is nappy and ugly. Ape woman weave and wigs is ugly.
    Ape women got bad breath with gap teeth, no loyalty, hemorrhoids, stinky vajayjaye, ugly bean head Beetlejuice hair, Clarence Williams iii facial features, flat frog chests, wanna be a White woman and be with a White man so bad with Rihanna Kardashian mileage and yeast infection. Nobody wants to marry ape women with their always frowned up, miserable and unhappy faces. Every race of women is better looking and got less mileage than an ape woman. I’d take the poorest and ugliest African, Arab, Asian, Indian, Latina, or White woman over the prettiest and wealthiest American ape woman in this lifetime or the next

    “Intact” is one word.

    • SnowStormsinDetroit

      They almost made it two whole sentences with out fuhkin up.

      I’m thinkin they should take baby steps and just try one sentence articles.

      • Jelly

        Yes! I had to read the third sentence three times. I wish they’d just write and stop trying to be witty. They really should invest in journalism and editorial classes.

        • SnowStormsinDetroit


          It definitely couldn’t hurt.

      • SheDevilsRule

        LOL I agree
