Yesterday, Lisa Arrindell Anderson showed us how you could work out and still have your natural hair in some fresh twists! The Saints and Sinners and Madea's Family Reunion actress wore her hair in mini twists with a side part. In a short video on Instagram, Lisa Arrindell shared a positive message about ascending and descending hills in your life.
In my 2013 interview with Anderson about her natural hair, she shared the fact that many Black women stay out of the gym because they don't want to mess up their hair. She said,
I know a lot of sisters stay out of the gym because of their hair. This is just unacceptable! Completely! How are you going to do that to your body? How are you going to look cute with your hair, cute with your nails, and your body is jacked up?
Lisa's choice of mini twists and also regular twists and braids are great protective styles for working out because they are not disturbed much by sweat. Twists also work better if you braid the roots first. You can also do buns, puffs, or ponytails. Almost any protective style will do if you're worried about having to style your hair afterward. Health goes first though!
Lisa, we hear you loud and clear!
