Finally!! Thank you Mother Nature! We have good weather again. Well, we were able to run 5 miles last night outside before the tornado sirens went off and the hail came. But, I consider it a good day when I can run outside and then enjoy the rain at night. It's all about getting outside for a few hours isn't it? Okay, so maybe that's just me. haha
I've come to a problem though that maybe you guys can help me with... my hair while running. It seems my long hair is making a mess of itself while I run. As I sweat (yeah, I know, so 'un-ladylike'), my hair gets damp and then tangles itself into a nasty mess. I've tried to put it up in a librarian inspired bun but it is heavy and can't seem to stay up past the first two miles. Then when I get home, I'm so irritated with it. My hair dresser suggested not washing it every time I work out but put an all-natural, chemical free leave-in conditioner on the ends when I get back.
I'd really like to solve this issue though because the ends are getting weak and starting to not look as healthy as it normally does. I'm not doing all this exercise to look good, all to have nappy hair in the end. LOL
Suggestions? Do you wear your hair in a special way? Method for keeping your hair nice after a run without washing everyday?
Breakfast attempt the other day: Oatmeal in an almost empty peanut butter jar... oops, it melted and wasn't that great...
