Transitioning to natural hair and Exercise

Regular exercise is very important to me and so is the health and look of my hair. While transitioning for the past 9 months it’s becoming increasingly evident that I have to wear more protective styles because increased washing = increased manipulation which for me means increased tangling. However, I do not intend to let this stop me as the health of my body is far more important than preserving any one particular hairstyle.

In the beginning I was wearing my hair in a ponytail quite often, but then decided that all the tension at the back of my head and trying to get that perfectly smooth hairline was not worth it. The next option was wearing braidouts and chiney bumps which wasn’t any better because when I washed my hair at night, I would wake up with it half dry resulting in a frizzy hairstyle for the office. Luckily, I work from home quite often and so I don’t worry about how my hair is going to look the next day.

Soon the day will come when I won’t have any of these issues because I won’t have to worry about having the perfect hairstyle to blend two textures so that I don’t totally look mad once I step out the door.
