I have been working out for a while now... and for some reason, I have not been taking the time to protect my hair from all the sweat! Not that sweating causes any harm to our hair, but after one workout - a beautiful head of loc's, can turn into an afro.
I have seen plenty of woman wearing scarves wrapped around their hair. But I was just to busy trying to be cute. But I am starting to get annoyed with trying to keep my hair neat to only see all my efforts sweat-ed away after one work out.
So from now on, I am going to wrap my hair every time I work out. Cute or not, I am tired of leaving the gym with a mini-sweaty-afro at the base of my hair.
Fabric: A fabric that has worked for me is a scarf made of acrylic and nylon. It's comfortable and it absorbs most of my sweat.
Also, after working out, try to leave your scarf on until you hair has completely air dried. That will also help to keep your style in tact.
