This post is not necessarily about hair.
It's about weight. As many of you know from 2011-2013 I lost ~40 pounds.
Having Sisterlocks definitely helps in having one less thing to worry about while working out. You can work out without worrying about sweating your hair out or getting your hair wet.
My 3 favorite ways to work out are hiking (climbing up and around Stone Mountain for locals), swimming, and yoga.
Many naturalistas wrap their hair but I don't. I heard a good site is www.saveyourdo.com; I read several great reviews for her headwraps that trap moisture to save your hairstyle. If you experience "slippage" in your Sisterlocks, this product is for you.
As for the pool, I tie my hair in a bun and dive in. I tried putting 2-3 swim caps on but now my hair is too full for it. Usually my hair is not soaked all the way through, so I just wash and condition. Then I air dry if it's warm out and blow dry if it's not. But I only go swimming at most 3 times a week. Have any of you tried a swim cap for locks you like? I know there are several on the market.
I know this may sound weird; but although I am still overweight, I have no desire to lose more weight. My main goal is being healthy, and if that requires weight loss then I chose my health. BUT I love my curves. I enjoy having a fleshy body. Really it would be great if we could spot reduce because I only want smaller arms and a flatter tummy.
Anyway, here's the progress as of January this year. For those of you who know me personally or through Facebook or Instagram, this is old news. But I wanted to share that this is a another great thing about Sisterlocks.
With Sisterlocks, working out is no problem!
