What to do with my hair?

Ok, I know this is a dumb question, ladies... but how do you keep your hair up? Mine is always falling down and knotting up and just generally being obnoxious during my workouts... HELP!

    Try clips like these:

    They worked for pulling my hair in a half-ponytail when my hair was its shortest

    My hair is between my shoulders and the bottom of my shoulder blades. I usually put a no-slide headband (the elastic kind with the rubbery lining that doesn't grip hair, but helps keep it in place) and then put it in a high pony tail by flipping my head upside and gathering it towards the crown of my head. I know some girls that put it in a loose braid, but I don't like the feeling of one part of my hair bobbing up and down.

    I have very thick, wavy, long hair. I tried clip after clip till I found one that mostly keeps it pinned on my head. Then I bought 5 of them! good luck!

    Just shave it off.

  • I either just put my hair in a very messy high bun, or a high side pony tail. For the most part I even do a braid headband with my bangs.

    hairbands and clips. Though I recently got a sweeping fringe and really could do with getting an alice band to keep it out of the way.

    If I'm doing water work outs I always platt my hair then it's a lot easier to tease out.
  • Goody no-slip hair band and a bandanna. If I don't have the bandanna, I don't worry about the stray pieces. I just get on the elliptical and let the sweat plaster it down. :)

    High tight ponytail for me. Once I start sweating, I use the sweat to slick back the strays. Headbands kept slipping off (I have long, straight hair -- little kid fine texture, just lots of it).
  • I gave up on my fine, straight hair and just got it cut short. :laugh:
  • I usually pull it in a high ponytail and use a headband. If I'm outside running, I'll wear a hat. That helps with keeping my hair back and the sun out of my eyes.

    I either have a barrett or headband to hold my bangs back and usually my hair goes back into a looped in pony tail. You know where you do a pony tail and then you put ends of the pony tail back into the pony tail holder.

    If I'm at the gym a pony with a good hair clip is enough. I have very long (halfway down my back) very thick hair so it's somewhat easy to get up.

    If I'm outside playing sport it's still the pony but witha hat.
