Hairstyles For Gym Bunnies With Afrotherapy Hair Salon in Edmonton, London
Spring is nearly here and it is usually the time that us ladies panic about our “bikini bodies” and make plans for working out. However, many women with natural afro hair find that strenous activity can be a nightmare for the condition of their hair.
The experts at Afrotherapy Hair Salon in Edmonton have investigated and compiled a list of hairstyles that mean you don’t have to choose between your hair & a spin class – you really can have it all!
Gym Hairstyle #1 – Cornrows
If you’re a regular gym-goer, you’ll need a hairstyle that is low maintenance and more importantly, stays put throughout your workout! A protective style such as cornrows will ensure that your hair is secure and works well with any length of hair. Boxer braids are the ideal workou hairstyle as they can look great both on and off the gym floor. If you’re unsure about styling your own braids, pop into our Edmonton hair salon, where an Afrotherapy expert will be happy to help.
Gym Hairstyle #2 – Space Buns
This is one of the best hairstyles for women with natural curls that have a mind of their own and tend to go all over the place. Bring a bit of cool to your cardio workout with these playful space buns which work well on short hair or long hair. Space buns are super easy to style and will stay in place throughout your workout.
Gym Hairstyle #3 – The Pineapple Hairstyle
If you want to protect your natural curls at the gym, you should definitely try the pineapple hairstyle. This stylish look is super easy to achieve and works well with all lengths of hair. To get this style, simply pile your curls high onto your head, secure with a hairband or brightly coloured scarf and some pins and you’re good to go!
Swimming With Natural Hair
Swimming is one of the best activities for getting fit, but as many women know, chorline damage is no joke. The chemicals in swimming pools can dry out natural afro hair and cause it to break. Before getting into a chlorinated pool, we recommend that you apply a deep conditioner to your hair and following your swim co-wash and apply a moisturising oil to lock moisture into your locks.
Ask your Afrotherapy stylist about the best products to use for your hair type before you get into that pool this year!
