I’m constantly getting e-mails asking me what I do with my hair – how often do I wash? How do I style it? What’s going on with MY hair?
Not a single thing.
I’m serious – I’m so low-maintenance when it comes to my hair that it’s a wonder that I still have any. And while I probably could still answer all the hair questions, the fact remains that every person’s hair is different. What works for one won’t work for another; what works for my lifestyle might not work for yours; what my “decency regulations” require might be different from yours… and, quite frankly, I’m a hippie. I straightened my hair for a while, and now I’m kind of just enjoying my Angela Davis style.
For workouts, I braid my hair into two pixie braids a la Pippi Longstocking, and go to work. I rinse my hair out with water and coconut oil, then I braid it back up unless I’m going right into my curls or my ‘fro. I don’t use heat on my hair, just a soft towel. I rinse it maybe every other day, and don’t use shampoo very often at all.
See that? Low maintenance. Those of you with high-fangled hair routines are probably wagging your fingers at me right now… I’m sorry. I hope you still e-love me.
That being said, what’s going on with YOUR head? Are you relaxed? Natural? How are you caring for YOUR hair during and after your workouts? What are you using on it? Let’s hear it!
