    Default Twistout vs. Workout - Epic Battle

    So its January and with a couple of trips and weddings on the horizon, I need to ramp up my workout. After a day long wash/condition/detangle/braid routine, I woke up with a great twistout. I love my hair but in the past, it always morphs into something huge when I get into a good workout. If I tie it down, I don't want to flatten it. I'd hate to go back to workout hair ( Ponytail/buns ) when I really want to get back to styling my hair more often. What have you ladies been doing or using to keep your styles sweatproof?

    Default Re: Twistout vs. Workout - Epic Battle

    I'm in the same boat, my hair morphs from the scalp when I work out.

    I dampen and retwist my hair with gel before working out. That's been the only way I can retain any style. If I work out with a twistout, it's over because my cottony hair just does not hold up. I don't twist every single twist, but combine them. And I don't twist too tight, and tuck the ends under. It's more like a "preservation" style. When I take down the twists, my hair is bigger than before but still defined.

    If anyone else has any ideas, I'd love to know!

    I agree with Dee. I would throw some big twists or braid in my hair to work out. The moisture of working out with a twist out is asking for huge hair (not that I don't love huge hair). I tend to wear a threaded style so work working out does not effect it at all. My hair looks like twist but stays lest frizzy.
