I love working out at home because---well---I can wear my old faded holey alum sweats, workout in my pre-shampoo oil treatment, and sport that sexy plastic cap that all the guys love. Lol. I've been married long enough that nothing that I do to my hair surprises my hubby. However, when I know I'm gonna hit the gym, there's no way that I'm sporting the same look. It's #FitnessFriday *round of applause* and here's what's in my gym bag...for my hair:
Bun Maker: Scunci Banana Clip
My secret to a big doughy bun is a banana clip. I love a polished messy bun. Meaning, I want it to look casual but chic---even in the gym.
Moisturizer: Jessicurl Too Shea
Moisturized hair is happy hair. Period. I slap a little on my edges then put on my headband to keep my edges tame.
Dent Free Elastics: Karina Elastic Ties
When I'm trying to save a blowout or flat iron, I reach for my dent free hair ties. Plus these ones skip that pesky metal that your hair gets caught in. I found these hair ties on sale at Ulta a few weeks ago for about $2. That clearence section is my bestie!
Bobby Pins: Conair Black Bobby Pins
Who is eating my bobby pins? I bought a 60 pack last month. Now I have 20...maybe 30. Smh. There is a bobby pin monster in my house tormenting my soul! (I'm not dramatic though...) I use bobby pins to secure my buns and keep my hair from distracting me from putting in work!
Several Headbands: Scunci No Slip Grip
I found these in the dollar store. Yeah---the dollar store! Then I promptly purchased ten. Headbands are like bobby pins---they just disappear into thin air.
My all time favorite gym style is a Double Dutch Braid into a bun. It's taut, cute, and works for just about all of my group classes. What's in your gym bag for your hair?
