Many women report that hair concerns keep them from exercising and I'll admit that I used to be one of those women! But there is good news. It IS possible to be fit AND keep a beautiful relaxed hairstyle. I haven't always worn a "natural" hairdo :).
Here are a few hair care tips from “Sisters on the Move”, a Sisters Together women’s health care initiative:
To flatten the edges of your hairline, rub a cream or gel into your hands and smooth your hairline. Tie with a cotton scarf for at least 15 minutes. After you remove the scarf, your hairline will be smooth. [265 Point: This tip came in really handy a few times, especially when I was a few weeks out from a relaxer!]

Sisters Together was funded as a pilot project of the Weight-Control Information Network (WIN) and was supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) to address obesity prevention.
