I can remember growing up every Saturday night my mother, who had five daughters, would sit and do all of our hair. Whether it was the hot comb, corn rolls or extension braids one thing was certain, little girls never enjoyed it. And now as an adult I still hate getting my hair done. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the outcome but hate the process. I’m sure you all have a similar love-hate relationship with your hair too. We hate getting it done and will do anything to guard it against messing up, even to the point of getting us sick?
Recently, some research showed that one reason that black women do not exercise is because of their hair. We are so loyal to our “do’s” that we are letting it effect our health. African American women are leading on the list of those affected by hypertension, diabetes, cancer and various other chronic diseases that are preventable by exercise and diet. The Surgeon General, said “Oftentimes you get women saying, ‘I can’t exercise today because I don’t want to sweat my hair back or get my hair wet” . Various women even spoke about not engaging in their favorite activities because of their hair. Needless to say, this is not an excuse! So I’m here to tell you about a product to help you work out and protect your hair style.
Save Your Do is a headband that will help minimize sweat absorption so that your nape and edges will remain dry and not frizz up. Its available in black and cost around $25. Considering all that it does I would say thats a steal. Also its cuter than a lot of other things that we ladies wear on our heads at the gym. So ladies get your running shoes on and start exercising. Learn more about the save your do at http://saveyourdo.com/about/
