I did a YouTube tutorial on my bun, but my fiancé interrupted me during the video so unless he can teach me how to edit the part where I’m yelling a him, I will have to make it over
So there is this great debate about women sacrificing their health for their hair and not going to a gym or working out. I’ve never been one of these women. This is one of those subjects where it becomes “just hair” for me.
I normally wear my hair in a bun when I workout anyway. It’s just easier. Nothing hard, or simple and it doesn’t wiggle too much when I run or am doing burpees.
Depending on whether I am going to the gym or working out at home does make a slight difference. When I’m home and I feel like my hair needs a little more, I will M&S or LCO and cover my hair with a conditioning cap, tighten it and do my workout. This is only when needed or my hair stays in a regular bun. When I go to the gym, my hair stays in a regular bun (not tight or loose) and I keep an extra scrunchie on my wrist. Afterwards, I do one of 2 things. I either:
-take down my bun and let my hair hang until its dry or
-just let my hair stay in the bun until its dry
I read once that a bun pineapple style or a high ponytail is always the best way to go. It might have been in Shape or Women’s Health. They also state never touch the hair until its dry. I had already been doing this but I’m glad someone put it out there. I’ve noticed when I wait until my hair is dry, I experience less shedding and breaking versus when it’s wet.
I do not cowash during the week, so it’s more important I let my hair dry. My hair doesn’t fade or dull or lose anything as long as its protected and treated right. I also don’t wear my hair out, but my point is that if I wanted to, using this method when working out doesn’t bother it. My hair does revert a tad, buts its nothing too much that you can never hide or handle.
Don’t risk your health over hair. You’ve got 100,000 strands and only 1 heart. It’s not worth it.
