One of the major dilemmas for us black women is wearing a weave and working out. Typically, black hair is not washed everyday, especially since we generally apply perms, dyes and other products that tend to weaken the natural state of our hair. Working out can become problematic for women who wear hair extensions as we sweat between the tracks and are not able to wash our extensions after every work out.

It is never a good idea to forgo working out in the gym to preserve hair extensions as we should all try to incorporate some aspects of a work out in our daily regimen. Braiding the hair extensions in a ponytail and wearing it in a bun will preserve the curl patterns of the hair but there is still the issue of sweating in between those cornrows.

We are advised to stay away from alcohol based products as they will dry out our hair extensions, while this is true, a good work around for the issue of working out in the gym and ridding oneself of the problem with sweating, is to use an alcohol based swab to wipe in between the cornrows themselves. This can be accomplished by separating each track and dabbing the swab between each row and then using a dry shampoo on the scalp. Be mindful not to apply either to your extensions, this is a technique to rid yourself of the odor that can be acquired from sweating during work-outs and not having the option of getting a good thorough wash after each work-out.
