No natch queen wants her ‘fro falling into her face while running a few miles or becoming undone while on the elliptical. Quick, stress-free looks are clutch for when it’s time to work it out. Here are five natural-friendly styles for the melanin goddess to keep her kinks tucked in while getting fit.


Top Knot

The top-knot bun is not only for the red-carpet, it’s also gym-friendly. Get your hands on some extra hold gel, a sturdy scrunchie and few bobby pins so you can keep your sweaty strands away from your face while working on those abs.


Afro Puff

This is the perfect go-to for the natural girl-on-the-go. It only takes a few minutes to gel down those edges and pull your curls into a wide puff with a headband. Let your ‘fro glow as it sits atop your crown while you get into some heart-pumping cardio.


Cornrows

This style has always been a staple among brown girls, and they are also an ideal style for the gym junkie. Braid your curls into however many cornrows you prefer to keep your kinks neat and unbothered as you push through your workout.


Flat Twists

Every girl that rocks her hair au natural does not have a knack for braiding, so flat twists are the next best thing. Just part your hair down the middle and roll your coils into a twist while inserting hair pins along the way to keep your hair in place.


Pom-Poms

This style is not only for the youngsters. Do a cutesy zig-zag part down the middle of your scalp and style your fro into two puffs on each side of your head. Then you’ll be ready for some pushups and planks.
