 Pre-Workout Haircare: 

  • Make sure your hair is pulled away from your face as this workout will make you sweat!
  • If you’re natural, you don’t need to do much to your hair since you’re working out inside. If your hair is pressed or relaxed try wrapping it or pin curling it and tying it down before your run. This helps keep frizziness to a minimum.

Post-Workout

  • Add Sporty Afros G+ spray (to natural hair) to replenish your hair’s moisture
  • Put sweaty gym clothes in a plastic bag
  • Follow these tips for looking cute right after leaving the gym.
  • Always have protein within 30 minutes of  your workout. Try Shakeology, SunWarrior or a protein packed meal.
