Have you ever skipped a workout because you'd already done your hair? Many women cite their beauty routine -- and concerns like getting sweaty or undoing their hair styling -- as reasons for not exercising, according to a 2008 study of African-American women from Wake Forest University. U.S. Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin says that she sees this problem in her patients of all races and backgrounds -- and that health should come first over hair.
If styling your hair after a workout is too much trouble, let it air dry and embrace its natural texture, or hide it under a cute winter hat after you hit the gym.
