Exercise and healthy eating can help your hair grow faster. Research shows that exercise is one of the most important ingredients for beautiful hair. Take my word and then do your own due diligence and research. Exercising will also add more versatility for your styling options. For years African American women have neglected their health because they did not want to “mess up their hair”. Well, sisters, those days are over! A lot are woman have experienced health challenges but they have decided to live happier, healthier lives by getting up and moving. The key to keeping your hair fresh and looking good while exercising will take energy, creativity and effort on your part. I promise it will be worth every minute of the extra time you spend. Let me share a couple of tips for both short and long hair.
If your hair is short, tie a wrap or a dry-fit sweat band around your hair and let it dry completely after each workout before styling. Now if your hair is long, pull your hair on top of your head in ponytail. If the sides and back of your hair swell while working out, its ok to use a styling product to remold your hair and tie your hair down with Wrap it Jr. Styling Strips. My favorite product is Nairobi Hair Foam. Make sure, before you start styling your hair, to use a nourishing product to add moisture back into your hair. Remember if you sweat a lot that is pure sodium which could cause hair damage. It may also be necessary to use a hydrating shampoo followed by a moisturizing conditioner or, if your hair is natural, you can use Pantene Co-Wash. These tips will take a little more time and effort, but it is well worth every extra minute.
