Healthy hair or healthy heart? Why not both!
Today many African American women seem to be comfortable compromising their health for their hair, why?
We donâ€™t know much about proper hair-care, or how important it is to stay in shape for both physical health and hair health. If we really want both, and we all should, here are a few tips on keeping your hair healthy while doing the same for your body:
Whether your hair is natural, chemically processed, weaved or braided; a daily exercise routine can be incorporated and you can still look great.
If you choose to workout first thing in the morning:
- Keep in your rollers, pin curls, or wrap, secured with a silk or satin scarf.
- After your workout, let your hair be the last thing you touch; shower, get dressed, apply makeup and everything else before you take off your scarf.
Now it’s hair time:
- Only remove the scarf, and with a hand-held or hood dryer let heat blow over your hair for about 10 minutes.
- Let hair down from rollers, pin curls or wrap, and then lightly spray with a sheen product and style.
Voila! You’ll find your hair silky smooth, shiny and manageable, along with having a great workout. These same tips work for the afternoon or evening, so go and exercise and stop worrying about your hair.
