The oh so fab mogul and model Kimora Lee Simmons once advised to always leave the house as if you were going to run into your worse enemy. I personally feel like I don’t have any enemies out here but Kimora’s advice is perfect..we can’t get caught looking crazy! Majority of my motivation comes from me. I like to look good. I use to go to the gym with my hair tied up and in baggy clothes until I learned the power of the mirror. I can feel like I’m about to pass out but I’ll walk past a mirror in the gym and get an immediate boost of energy. “Hey Girl Hey!” “She’s cute today!!” We can work hard and still look fabulous..sparkle (sweat) and all. Keeping your hair cute is a must and I know that’s so hard if you are active. I called on the owner of Bee Instyle Hair Studio and my hairstylist Brittany for advice on hairstyles that are fit for fitness. Everyone usually puts their hair in a ponytail but Brittany warns you to wear ponytails at your own risk because they can cause stress in the middle of your scalp. I can’t keep this information to myself! I want you to lose weight not your hair! I asked Brittany about wigs, cornrow braids and crochet braids so that you can try out new hairstyles and avoid the tension.
Wigs are ideal because the hair is protected by cornrow braiding the hair and putting the wig on top of the braids. The hair is protected from the sun, heat from flat iron, and dryness. It is important when wearing a wig to make sure the braids are lubricated with vitamin E oil.
Cornrow Braids are great because there is less strain on the hair when doing strenuous work outs. Cornrow braids are perfect because they allow you to sweat without the worry of hair frizzing and coming out of place. It is important to oil the hair with vitamin E oil or coconut oil.
Crochet Braids are ideal for natural hair because it allows versatility without the strain of having to do a twist out or style to natural hair every night.
There is one more issue that we encounter while trying to stay fab and fit. Working out in the sun will totally change your hair color. You go from J-Lo honey blonde to Lady Gaga bleach blonde after a hour of boot camp. I have the solution! Cosmopolitan.Com featured Finesse Color Lock Hairspray. The double-duty hairspray locks in style and color dye up to 75 percent longer. Perfect right! I literally thought of everything..with Brittany and I on your side you can’t go wrong! Make sure you let me know how the hairstyles work for you and be sure to stop by Bee Instyle Hair Studio whenever you’re in Houston, Texas!
