How To Maintain Your Hair When Working Out5 min read

When all you’re trying to do is work out and stay healthy…But your hair is not having it. Working out as an African with either natural or relaxed hair can be challenging at times. Whether its shrinkage from sweat or edges ruined. That is why you need special care. Don’t worry, TCB Naturals is here for you:

Protect Your Edges

Picture this: Edges laid before your workout. Then boom! Edges not laid after your workout. Sweat is the main culprit for this. If you want to keep your edges staying in place and looking perfect, wrap a satin scarf around the edges and nape of your neck. This keeps edges smooth and frizz-free.

Keep Your Hair Off Your Face

Working out means you’re working up a sweat and this sweat can affect your hair, making it frizzy and causing shrinkage. Make sure to have your hair up and out of your face. You can do this by creating some braids or twists and holding them up into a bun. You can also hold your hair up into a pineapple and don’t forget to wear your satin scarf around your edges and the nape of your neck!


Now that you’re done with your workout, it’s time to refresh and rehydrate your hair. For your hair, use some TCB Naturals Leave-In Treatment and follow up with TCB Naturals Hair Food to bring back moisture and shine. For your scalp, use TCB Naturals Hair Food to refresh it and replenish the moisture lost. Naturals Sheen Spray once you’re done flat ironing. Our Sheen Spray is like the cherry on top.

Schedule Your Workouts Around Your Hair

Just as a side note, you can try to schedule your workouts around your hair. Though it might not be 100% possible, it’s worth a try.
