I am natural and I just throw it in a ponytail *lol*

Thanx for the advice ladies. But "natural" will never happen for me. My daddy and daughter have a really pretty and curly hair that is perfect natural, so I'm sure that if I let my relaxer grow out that I'll have the same texture. I've been getting relaxer ALL MY LIFE, I have no idea what my natural hair looks like!

Each day is another chance to become better!!!

I wear mine natural (see my photo) or I wear a wig or a weave. The best way I have found to hand my hair is versatility. I change it up so much that no one ever recognizes when I have my natural hair. They just assume it's a wig

We actually already tackled this subject. some of the sisters said to wear braids. I actually have been wearing a wet set/natural look. I don't have a perm but the natural look works out really well for me because I sweat in the middle of my head. However I am going back to my press and curl in about 2 weeks before ministry school starts back. I just added a new picture if you would like to see my mo-hawk (wet set)

I have locs, so the sweat is no problem to me. i just pull them up and go.

If you cut your hair, you will have more problems due to swellin and have a mini blow out! try wrapping it, or pull it back in a pony tail.

IF I CAN DO IT SO CAN U!

I am struggling with this as well. My hair is a decent length, but I'm thinking about braiding or even cutting my hair (my roommate said I'll still have just as many issues if I cut it off). If anyone has any suggestions let me know. :)

I cut mine off, and it gets shorter every weekend... It's now natural, no relaxer, just some color, so I wash, moisturize, and tousle it. I may never grow it back!

I do the same thing. I just put my hair up before I work out. However, I'm thinking of getting it braided sometime soon.

This dicussion has been posted before a while back. Since my hair has grown out I just bruch it real good and wear it up when I am working out.

I can't believe that in a room full of sistas this discussion hasn't kicked off!! When I wear a weave I don't have to worry about my workout sweating my hair out because my hair is braided underneath, but when I relax my hair and wrap it, I have issues. I don't like to put alot of heat on my hair so I don't want to have to flat iron EVERYTIME I work out!! I love weaves but my own hair is long and beautiful too so I don't want to ALWAYS were weaves. Any suggestions?!

Each day is another chance to become better!!!
