Maintaining your hair on the go as a busy boss woman can be extremely difficult—especially when you aren’t sure of how to even go about it.
As Black women, there are a plethora of hairstyles that we are constantly wearing (some more high maintenance than others), and sometimes it can be difficult trying to juggle maintaining your hair along with life’s other demanding responsibilities.
As Boss Women supporting other busy Boss Women, we want to make sure we’re focused on securing the bag and making money moves—and of course looking cute while doing it. So we’re giving you 3 ways to maintain your hair on the go as a busy boss woman working a 9 to 5, managing your side hustle, or simply after a long workout at the gym, presented by Crème of Nature.
- Make Protective Styles Your New #BFF
Protective styles are absolutely phenomenal for those busy boss women that are always on the go. Corn rows, box braids, flat twists, weaves, wigs, you name it—they all are instant bff’s for those hardworking boss women. These protective styles are also great to wear to the gym because they prevent your hair from getting frizzy after a long sweaty workout.
Protective styles are also beneficial in growing and strengthening you hair. As you’re protecting your natural hair with corn rows, braids, twists, and weaves, your natural hair isn’t being manipulated or damaged—as long as you’re maintaining your natural hair underneath when it’s necessary.
Pros about Protective Styles:
- Requires low maintenance (depends on the protective style)
- Retains growth
- Strengthens and softens hair
- Reduces damage to natural hair caused by heat and styling products
- Grants you the opportunity to give yourself a “new look”

Keeping it simple and cute will not only save you so much time, but it will also save you so much money! As a woman constantly on the go, it’s important that your hair isn’t slowing you down. A simple middle part with loose curls, or a deep side part with a little volume is a simple yet effective look for any boss woman. Find your signature look and stick to it!
