One of my first post was about the ongoing issue of African American women dealing with hair maintenance and exercise. The article proved to be most helpful with all of your comments and suggestions that you all use on a daily basis.
I have been wearing the Save Your Do Gymwrap for almost a year now. I support the purchase of the product and stand behind it 100%. You can purchase one here. I wanted to do a post to elaborate on what is so special about this gymwrap as opposed to the scarf, mesh cap, or other savior you might be using currently. Below is a before and after picture of my hair from a typical day at the gym. I will walk you through my process with pictures so you can visually see the effect of using this product.
“Save Your Do™ GymWrap is a stylish headband developed with a patent-pending revolutionary “Edge Control Technology” that minimizes sweat absorption through a unique blend of materials that allows heat to escape while letting cool air in. The moisture ‘wicking’ process occurs at the molecular level within the fabric resulting in drier flat hair!” That was Save Your Do in a nutshell, directly from the website. You can read more about it and get answers to frequently asked questions on the site.
My Process in Maximizing the Effectiveness of the Save Your Do Gymwrap
I always opt to wrap my hair before getting in the shower because I don’t like the tight curl look. This is how I come up with my after look seen below.
As you see, it’s not a magical wrap. However, it does stop the sweat around the edges and provides you some relief in knowing that your $50-$100 hair do is not totally shot to crap just days after getting your hair done. If this is not a problem you suffer from (meaning you aren’t black nor do you have course hair to maintain), please share it with someone that you know it will help. We are all in this weight loss, healthy living, get fit journey together and need to support each other.
In the spirit of full disclosure, this post contains an affiliate link, which means that I may get a commission if you decide to purchase anything from Save Your Do. I only recommend products & systems that I use and love myself, so I know you’ll be in good hands. Clearly, I LA LA LA LOVE the Save Your Do and I know you will too!
Yours in Healthy, Active, and Prosperous Lifestyles,
