Your hair should not hinder you from working out. Depending on the texture and style of your hair, it may be sufficient for to you wear a silk or satin head wrap when you exercise. If you sweat a lot during your workout, you should use a sweatband of synthetic blends and fibers to keep your hair dry. After your workout, make sure your hair is completely dry before removing the head wrap. If you notice a build-up on your scalp, you can dab a little witch hazel or peppermint oil on a cotton ball to cleanse and refresh your scalp. Read more about this in Healthy Hair Workout Regimens.
