Believe it or not, for ethnic women, the top reason why they do not want to use the gym is their hair issues. Skipping the gym so you do not mess up your hair? You might think it’s stupid until you know the cost of some of the hair extensions. How can a gym
session compare to a £200 worth Brazilian extensions or come from a perming session, well set hair to a sweaty smelly gym session that will involve washing your hair after. I am sure I am not the only one that thinks of hair first before gym but for us black women, its not an option. We are stuck up with diets in order to maintain a trendy hair style.
The obsession with fake hair has reached another high level. Average women are spending more that £300 each month to power their hair look and competion are on who has the best hair extension. I have long beautiful permed hair which can be set to different styles but I do feel cheap and inadequate when faced with the synthentic hair frenzy. Saying that, they do enhance the look so, lets just say the gym can wait!
