Going Natural=Better Health?
Fox News Chicago presented an interesting segment on black women and exercise. The notion that black women are less inclined to workout when their hair is relaxed vs natural was explored in this segment, and for many this notion was a reality. Some women stated they work out more now that they have the made the transition from relaxed to natural hair. The reporter, Robin Robinson, rocked her relaxed hair in a natural style for the day, apologetically, to see if wearing your hair in a natural style would create less maintenance on the hair, therefore enhancing the overall workout experience.
Has going natural enhanced your workout experience? Do you frequent the gym more now that you are natural? Personally, I think it was just as easy going to the gym with relaxed hair because all I had to do was blow dry my hair, wrap it and slightly bump it with a curler the next day. The video asserts that women with relaxed hair do not want to entertain the idea of visiting the gym for fear of sweating out the perm or their hair reverting to "kinks" but with a relaxer, your hair does not revert back to kinks. I do understand not wanting to sweat out your style especially for those who do not know how to style their hair themselves.
Tell me what you think...
