For those of us with ethnic hair, going to the gym can be a major problem. Not because we hate working out, but because of the toll that sweaty workouts can take on our hair. If you find yourself avoiding the gym because you’re worried about the impact on your hair, here are some simple tricks you can use to keep your mane in check.

Use a bandanna

Purchase a large bandanna in a style you’ll want to wear in the gym. When it’s time for a workout, there are different options for different textures of hair or hair extensions. If you have straight hair, brush your hair back into a ponytail. If your hair is wavy, smooth down the top and make two braids on each side of your head. Next, fold the bandanna in a triangle and place it on your head. Smooth it down towards the back then tie it securely. If you’re wearing a ponytail, you can let it hang loosely to avoid frizzy hair secure it by twisting it into a bun. The trick is to work out in intervals, which means low intensity and high intensity with cool down periods in between, stay hydrated while keeping the bandanna in place. Then, after you’re done exercising, don’t remove the bandanna until after all of your sweat has evaporated and the bandanna is dry.

Time your workouts for closer to your hair appointment

Another tip is to schedule your styles around your workouts so that they don’t conflict. If you know that your straight styles won’t survive your weekly exercise routine, then try to wear them before you have your workout. After your workout, you can transition to textured styles leading up to your next hair appointment.

CiaraIs your weave starting to look too weavy? We’ve all been there. I don’t think there’s a weave wearer out there who hasn’t purchased a bad batch of hair, tried to save money by purchasing cheap hair or simply waited too long between trips to the salon. If your extensions are starting to look like a tangled nest on top of your head, here are some tips on how to make the best of a bad situation.

Try a new hat
If your hair extensions are still pretty and intact but your roots are in need of a touch up, just use some creative styling, consider wearing a Fedora hat to your next event or night out. You can also try a head wrap, both are great ways to stylishly conceal your new growth.

Cope with Dry or tangled Hair
If the hair is dry or tangles up, try washing and deep conditioning it with silicon mix to work out those pesky tangles. If you’re on the go, keep a travel-sized brush with you at all times. Whenever your weave is acting up, you can excuse yourself to the bathroom and comb it out from ends to root.

ACV wash for curly hair
If your hair is curly and keeps getting bigger and bigger as the day goes on, try an apple cider vinegar rinse and co-wash before you leave the house. You can then apply a light moisturizing oil to the ends. Keep a small spray bottle with you throughout the day to apply light spritzes of water that will help keep the hair under control.

Only buy the best hair
No home remedy can top the benefits you’ll get from only buying top-quality, 100 percent human hair from a reputable salon or extensions store. Natural human hair extensions, properly maintained, will keep their look longer and better than any of the cheaper alternatives.

scalpAlthough many of us search the stores looking for new products to use to achieve the perfect hair, did you know that beautiful hair starts from the scalp? Unfortunately, many of us suffer from dry, itching, irritated scalps and other problems which have a major negative impact on the health and appearance of our hair. However, there are a number of easy DIY techniques you can use to heal and promote a clean, healthy scalp.

  • Coconut oil and citrus treatment

For this treatment, you’ll also need a scalp brush, bowl and applicator brush or cotton balls. Combine four tablespoons of coconut oil with two tablespoons of lemon juice and one tablespoon of grapefruit juice. Slowly and gently roll the scalp brush across your scalp to stimulate the skin and dislodge any build-up. Part your hair in the center, then apply the oil mixture onto small sections of your scalp with the applicator brush or cotton swabs until covered. Finally, give yourself a good scalp massage, let the treatment sit for 20 minutes and then clean up with shampoo and conditioner.

  • Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil can be irritating, but if your dry scalp problems involve dandruff, it can be one of the best remedies around. You can modify the above recipe to use tea tree oil instead of citrus, perhaps also with some rosemary oil for more follicle stimulation. Use no more than two to four drops of tea tree oil, depending on your sensitivities, and apply as above. Also consider adding tea tree oil to your usual shampoo.

  • Massage to promote good circulation

One under-appreciated cause of many scalp ailments is poor circulation. If you suspect your scalp isn’t getting enough blood flow for optimum health, consider a massage. After brushing your hair while bending or lying down, massage in small quantities of olive oil, making small circles with your fingertips. Next, wrap your head in a hot, damp, towel and sit comfortably for 10 minutes. Remove the towel, and rinse with warm water or shampoo if desired.

Picture-879Did you know that the food you eat can positively effect the state of your hair? Among these foods with beneficial effects are several “superfoods” that can help promote hair growth or improve the overall state of your hair. Below, we’ll discuss some of these common foods that are believed to be helpful in getting your hair to grow.

  • Kidney Beans

Plain old kidney beans are actually one of the best sources of many hair-healthy nutrients. Kidney beans can be served in all kinds of dishes like soups, wraps or salads. Kidney beans contain large amounts of protein, which is known to strengthen hair. Sometimes, overly dry hair can be a sign of a biotin deficiency. Luckily, a single serving of kidney beans also contains an entire day’s value of supplemental biotin.

  • Yogurt

Another great source of hair-growing protein is yogurt. Yogurt can be incorporated into many breakfast dishes, mixed with fruit or enjoyed as a topping on other foods. Always watch out for extra fat content, but adding a single serving of yogurt in your daily routine can be a healthy way to increase hair growth.

  • Salmon

To promote scalp health and decrease shedding of hair, few nutrients are as important as Omega-3 fatty acids. For a healthy daily dose of Omega-3s, try a single serving of fresh salmon with your next meal. Vegetarians can consider flaxseed oil or other high-Omega-3 alternatives to salmon.

  • Citrus and Berries

Collagen is a substance that surrounds and protects your hair strands, but it breaks down with aging. Vitamin C is known to boost collagen levels and may help protect hair from damage due to collagen deficiency. For a major dose of vitamin C, try adding a few servings of fresh berries or citrus fruit to your diet.

  • Almonds

Almonds are loaded with essential nutrients that can have a major effect on hair health. Among others, almonds are a terrific source of Zinc, which boosts scalp health and hair growth and helps maintain healthy oil production. Consider a small handful of almonds as a snack during the day.
