These type of here ties is your hair is into the cotton. It doesn't have an end. You know the traditional here ties they have that little space we are here with its snags because they connected to the circle wreck so these don't we have that. And denies the about it being a four.

It's going to the audio coaching and it's going to play the coolest music and if you agree playlist of like having a DJ and a coach in your ear is the music really good yes that is typical thing about out of its none an -- eighties speaking of your scratching moment. It's not like the eighties corny cans like a camera music I don't think get the rights to exactly does that like they got the rights and it's the real song from Justin Bieber Katy Perry however just like real stuff it's real stuff that's real top forty dance music. Whatever serve as my issue with I have an yoga app actually really like an elaborate on the saint mimic them can criticize it. But my issue with it is the new category so you know we do you really only need to listen anyway because when you're in a class you're not really looking at the teach them time and often parking around. So I find the it to be fantastic but the music instance those cheesy I always wished I can connected with my A with her fires and riots or maybe that's like the next phase and can you give someone an app can you gift an app. As you can mean I think you what you can do is give people an iTunes gift card telling the App Store and the making used. For whatever they want. You know you can tell them I would use it for this OK that's Smart. OK Jessica. She is shampoos trashed him oh and mostly hammer asked you apply here OK let's get there a second body wipes talking about my rights OK so. I think for me going to be jam.

Actually relieved it's eyes. And you can get Neal also make some great ones like big and you can get your whole body I think it's important to white before you run. Outs and I never working at night sometimes I'd just like skip that shower right especially of and a network up the next morning thank you look at I ordered work at a 5:5 PM then comic on the the anyway so I can take two hours apparently you know Tom Athens can. Anxiously yes the body type is a great solution that case because if you leave your wet clothes and you leave that slash. Bad habit I do all of the record is terrible. I mean that's what create that mean that sway and dam is getting tracts. Between your tight clothes and now they're in addition to your pores in the cotton. Situation sad situation you know says like just take the time today. He's my life changing hands and then go home. To the shower yes it's really important that you really rinse off to get all of that doc even whites can lead but the small. On this in the team really wash off with. And a lot of Easley boutiques he has no option power in the orchestra and spaces to premium and do high in the classic mine you'd repayments and there's an hour he met by the way it's I think are keeping mean BK is sometimes like time. Right in the line from the shower or exit there's an hour. I think they're great ways seen cap and often in. And we were just talking before we got in here about the importance of using that wiped before class if you have make up on your coming out by the clock keep coming from words ligament or work our class. You don't believe the make up on your skin and the angels ready. Brecher sweat will kind of keep that make up will elect. Be pushed into your pores and it's like. A situation what I do you ago in this is kind of hack. You know working in TV you often get fully made up and then you may have him Parikh. And then in if you wanna go to the gym and Wear the or not you were in TV sometimes you wanna go to the gym in between two things were you need to be ready for about. I will often take up off everything about my eyes. So I'll leave eye shadow like you don't release when I hear islets. I'll leave eyeliner. Leaving me my eyebrows and I'll take up everything else on my end because I was also take the longest to apply yeah them and then it's just a quick powder blast gloss and you're out the door and five minutes after a great candidate Adam when a mile it was so and I don't think it's too bad effort. And sweating down scares. The vineyard. Maine yeah Matt. Yeah. And we wanted to let him from talking about. Hair as parents that something resistance. Resistance bands I love so over the holidays you got a lot of travel maybe you're going to lot of places. Not everywhere as a gem. Especially if you're going like I do going to my hometown. Which is phenomenal now and I'm from vero beach Florida votes small town. And our house south east of Orlando that the Florida and Orlando lateral anti drug and our house southeast. The coast and then your urine during cattle country and is it easier on the coast it's beautifully atomic assistance pretty it's really nice in Vero Beach. To be. He really resistant and the Caribbean to bring an end and dare they dare badly the reality of late going to urge and that I'm gonna go to for a week or something like homer visiting. So it's agree things just pack at written your suitcase on the and then you have a great resistance work out without having to carry with a ten pound dumb bells. Senior cicadas. And you really get a good work out resistance absolutely I think on the if you especially if you wanna act a couple in a couple of different resist senses like a light medium and heavy resistant. And there's no fold up another going to be you know just a couple of inches in your in your back and your bag. And you can do you know you can do everything with your legs and lower body. You can use them on for resistance when your arms he can really do full body work now armed with just the bands and a little bit of creativity. And that's where Google comes and vacant. Google some workouts we've got from himself. You can find them. Oh pence has covered with the resistance bands do you jams I mean showers your office now and you Tammy your office. You know not in Angola traits and yet there's one across history written you know I think a lot of of us take kind of boutique is take class classes is it acceptable in your office to say you're leaving to go work out. Think it is a lot before an after work like if I'm you know. Bouncing around I 86 to get work and and I finished on where and yeah if I come in around you know and because that work of the bats. You know out of the round I mean we really yet to practice what you preach straight about her self care and about. Really taking the time to take care of yourself and I think we leave recommends emptying your room we say we. Dance and it's because he really capture rent it has and sometime that means you have to go to a nanny America and. You know plus tested especially New York they're always crazy fun and new work outs coming out all the times. I think sometimes our job feels very and feels very fun because we're not just going I mean we're not just doing typical. Like you know weightlifting classes were sometimes during aerial yoga rational. Hot and the fact of the experience yet. I am okay so let's talk about hair. Because it this thousands it to our tax rate because we that I thinks it's so key. The holidays are so hectic for so many reasons and Philly gift if you can kind of stain your fitness routine it's not about. You know your weight. For me it's more about just staying balanced as boom and censored and not getting too crazy and too stressed and having one thing that centers year. During a time that's a little bit hectic. Parents of big think a lot of people won't work out leak is there in a mass of. Are we meet you with so what are your Samir favorite tax. Well I think for people who have like Streeter it's always command team east champ who both for you work. Maguire before so. Everyone you stretch of I feel like not everyone's allowed beloved chimp who are but. It's meant to be used on dry here not wet here after you work with and he is well a lot of ways we're using. When you use it before you work out that powder helps absorb the sweat that comes. OK you see that the tigers got the party candidates exactly our kind of arteries of the year for the war. This went back content that comes from working out afterwards you can give yourself ref blow dry and it may be delivered more after here's. For absentee kind of give it texture you want. In that way you're in light street near care. At the station oak. And love this one where Winick. It this is my own personal but what I have done some big fan of we don't Coptic America's real hair it just didn't grow from my so it's unfair it's real and it's also Allen's it's not mine in his mind the paid for it. That let's call it artificial air fare better it's badgers aren't thinking I'm a big fan of like the ponytail but we've always egg all these things that help you get work and still at that game to become days. As a woman with Afro textured hair like. Sweating immediately from here down to two inches an I want to show ultimately my curls and only dealing here with a week. Fish camp doing is not an option for me especially at age and where our products right ISIS' says it Horry is a situation. So what I its dues I just give me here courtroom. Underneath or breed it and then I Wear my robberies. Two engine. And and I carry my way. In my huge impact in the so on an architect might break. Ers look or her silk scarf and and I let it shower and shake my here. The girls in the Jim Leavitt and doesn't our air on obviously you don't go like in the stall on my mind here in Mary Miley than nicely. Don't leave big I. So I would when the first several months spent a new year I was like a little hell looks amazing every day you know do. I added all right yeah. Knowing what kind of Wiggins does it lays Bryant is he leaving your house fine and they don't leave out because you know leave out means I may be sitting here. Let rest departments ranks so I don't delete pages Italy's weighing. And it's currently sets and after. Natural act so all of your hair is rated opening quality is rated at and then I literary uses taken out of my bonnet. Say get out and limit the growth of red curtain. And I slept on an expert that was wired to kind of like these music yeah Asia's and then I'm out the door and I can't tell you when I'm I'm me. And I can't tell you I'm doing like me you're weak and lazy you ism magical you're wrong. Chart. Exactly ever exhibit that opens the park just put her here are. And everything you know that's away eat out some way for him. Geekspeak didn't realize that I was meeting here and Greta first of an idea and in the shower but that's what do we eggs at them I'm not where you aren't. I'm not an. Actor like proudly put it on walk around you know out of the shower like free the bird like what diplomat. As a little too intimate so I'm not yet prepared. I think. Day ink. We're blessed to have vs how options when it comes to hair and it is Wiig is helping need to come to beat him. Like I hats and days where I wouldn't have been Fijian. Had he not been for that we. So I hope that that that thing on my and and you know exits and it's nice way to pay it. I am proud to put it on the debate being it also opens up a conversation. About how complicated. Here can be eaten and if that. So once you become a wig and thinks this is the solution that would give me in the gym more often break then. I'm I'm happy for kitten. That you nominate you've inspired means mountain the proud. And applying the way yeah I think also some time this day of the before that we don't want people see a break and I think having the breeds. In the gym is. Like free and to not have to worry about. My hair and I'll sort membranes for anyone. You know if you want to have that beechy style and you might not have a Afro hair and maybe Havoc we you're currently texture. You can Wear your hair planted. In me just to elect kind of breeds and then release it after you sweat then you'll have that texture without having today. Flat tire you know that's is an easy way to keep that texture. They're really good idea to fewer African runner on like I'm I'm a runner and I want her hair. And if you are doing longer runs that constant pony tail that's going to be like kind of pulling at your hat with every single stash cash is not agree before you so I'll soothing breeze they hope alleviating the pressure that you can have on your scalp. And guy it's it's I think breeds can be a lifesaver for a lot of people. And that right now they're kind of mean and certain circles of economic and in India and India meaning but not every popular in terms of the mainstream trans actually I think wearing a French creators. You know. Or elect two braids wrapped around an crown. Can be really cute and you can Wear that to the agent an out break is also breed of beer resist. Since that it is always are not doing my yoga underhanded. You know you can Wear vision to be afraid to Wear the image cardinal. And didn't continue to at same rate. Now from German ago and then you have a hack that I think is really interesting as. And im asking here here. Before you work yes sticking to its power after. Examine your watch for her anyway why not use that hour to maximize your deep conditioning it's cold out. Here is really try. It Laxman waste. So I liked it in an oil treatment are dry mass. Our habits and deputy commissioner. Both for. I go to him maybe exit to breeds including quick to cover. Keep it from tripping. An idea but on this shaft into that our is yet it would be a bad just that your injuries and you know Levy from its unions and then. Work out and in the heat from years in that your skin's and it will warm up the treatment and help it sink into your hair. And then you can rents and known her. And again it's times hacker and at times and I'm amid deafening taken out on. Any final thoughts as we head into the holidays and any means gifts that you. Perhaps pensioner. Don't think there any others as I I would say there just to reiterate one of the points that you brought up as we head into the holidays give yourself a break.
