It’s no secret that lots of black women don’t work out because they don’t want to mess up their hair. Actress Nicole Ari Parker created and founded the Save Your Do Gym Wrap, so we can stop those workout excuses.
The Atlanta-based actress was on the Steve Harvey Morning Show talking about her new product. Listen to the exclusive interview below!
From Save Your Do™ Founder, Nicole Ari Parker
Save Your Do™ GymWrap is a stylish headband developed with a patent-pending revolutionary “Edge Control Technology” that minimizes sweat absorption through a unique blend of materials that allows heat to escape while letting cool air in. The moisture ‘wicking’ process occurs at the molecular level within the fabric resulting in drier flat hair!
The idea for the Save Your Do™ Gymwrap came to me last year when I noticed a common excuse emerge among busy everyday women (myself included) about why they couldn’t work out: their hair. Hair is a serious issue for most of us women because after spending a ton of time and money to have it washed, blowdried, flat-ironed and curled, none of us want to sweat and mess it up all over again.
I could not have predicted what happened next…during that summer, the Surgeon General issued a statement saying ‘Women have got to stop using their hair as an excuse not to exercise.’ Wow, there it was plain as day. Our health issues had reached a state of emergency all because of one little detail, our hair. This nationwide call to action inspired me even more to perfect the GymWrap and finally bring it to you.
The Save Your Do™ Gymwrap comes in a variety of colors and is available in three styles: Full triangle, wide band and narrow band. The Save Your Do™ Gymwrap is ideal for all hair lengths, types and textures.
