Let Nicole Ari Parker "Save Your Do"

Nicole Ari Parker, one of our favorite BG actresses is now a budding entrepreneur. The former Soul Food star is on a quest to "save our 'dos," with the launch of her revolutionary "Save Your Do Gymwrap," to help keep our hair sweat-free during workouts.

While I've never sacrificed exercising for the sake of my strands, I do know many women who do. We all know those who see the gym as instant "kryptonite" when it comes to maintaining their styles. For those lock-loving ladies, this souped up sweatband is an answer to their hair-preserving prayers.

Save Your Do GymWrap is available here starting at $24.95

I recently used the "SYDGW" during a strenuous workout in in Park Slope and was incredibly pleased with the results. It kept my hair dry by keeping moisture away from the skin while letting cool air in. Even though I have natural hair, I still have it blown out periodically and it kept my edges smooth and frizz-free. 

Not only is this brilliantly-designed wrap good at protecting our 'dos, but it also gives back to a great cause.  10% of proceeds will go toward the Sophie's Voice Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 2008 by Parker and her husband, actor Boris Kodjoe, whose mission is to help individuals diagnosed with spina bifida.

Remember ladies, hair is hair; leading a healthy lifestyle is what's really important. Also, if you're wondering if Parker has given up her thespian roots, don't worry; you can catch her this spring starring in the Broadway revival of "A Streetcar Named Desire."

Have you ever halted your workout plans to preserve your 'do? Would you wear the "Save Your Do Gymwrap?"

Of course I've dodged the gym because of my hair but I use any excuse to dodge the gym. I would love to try this out though! It would be perfect for my riding days this summer!! Where do I buy it?
