Workout hair tips

I am having a superficial hair dilemma this morning. Why superficial? Well, I just had my hair professionally twisted last week and it came out great (thanks Niecy). This morning I have an intense boot camp class. Don’t get me wrong, I AM GOING to my class but I hate the way my hair gets puffy at the roots. Aargh. Hey! I will choose health over style AND DAY!

However, I am now on a hunt to find out how folks preserve/ protect natural hair styles (especially twist outs and other loose styles). Please share your workout tips. I will be sure to post a comprehensive list. Thanks!

    Have you tried a sweat band? I usually place a sweat band on my hair line, when I am wearing my hair straight, to keep my roots from curling back up. This should help when you are wearing your hair curly. When I wear my hair curly and workout, I just end up washing it because my scalp tends to be very oily, especially during the summer.

    I need to get one BIG time! What material do you use? I guess I can get the old-fashioned terry cloth looking one.

    I'm bad… lol! I use a cotton one that I bought at Target.
