Working Out With My Senegalese Twist and Day 16 Update

Working out with senegalese twist
So it has been over two weeks since I got my twist done. Let me tell you, I have been having so much fun with these twist. They are just super gorgeous and have been very easy to maintain. Two weeks in I have already noticed growth. My scalp have not been extremely itchy. I keep applying the extra virgin olive oil at twice during the week and massaging my scalp. I try to be really careful with my edges. Any hairstyle that I do I try to keep the front as loose as possible. I am also thinking about trying to go ahead and wash them. If I do this it will be in my third or fourth week. I will follow up and let you know what method I use.

Anyways..let’s talk about working out. The first day I had to work out with my twist I had no idea how it was going to be. I put my hair in a really high bun and I jumped on the stair master for about an hour. The twist held up nicely, I had no problems. Then later that week I went to Zumba Step and also decided to do a high bun. The bun completely collapsed. The hair was too heavy to stay on top of my head with all of the jumping up and down, squats, weights etc. So, I just took it all down and let it hang, that was super irritating. I had twist all over me and I had to keep moving them out of the way.
So, the next day I had another Zumba class and I put my hair in one simple ponytail with a headband. SUCCESS My hair did not move out of place I used a Good Headband to secure the ponytail and it lasted throughout my entire workout with no problem. So, that is how I have been wearing my hair for every workout in a ponytail. My ends get slightly wet from sweating, because I am usually wearing a tank, but you can lightly rinse the ends after your workout with water.

So far so good!
