Sweat-Worthy Bangers: 20 Songs To Add To Your Workout Playlist

Sweat-Worthy Bangers: 20 Songs To Add To Your Workout Playlist

When it comes to preparing for your daily workout, there are a few things that must be in place: a cute workout fit, fully charged headphones, and of course, a fire playlist.

There’s so much magic in having the perfect workout playlist that suits your vibe and keeps you motivated to crush your reps or go the extra mile. It’s your secret sauce, your personal coach that makes you feel like that girl in the gym.

Keeping your momentum up while working through your routines can be hard when you’re in a funk or just haven’t gotten into the groove of your session. Since working out is largely a mental game just as much as it’s physical, getting in the right headspace sometimes means putting on the right soundtracks to keep you on track.

With the right workout playlist, there’s no circuit, weight, or curl that you can’t take on. It's the ultimate motivation boost to help you to push harder, run faster, and lift heavier all while having your favorite anthems in the background. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top 21 bangers to get your heart pumping and rump shaking so that you crush your next workout.

Three Influencers Show Off Their 2022 Holiday Hair Looks Using Their SheaMoisture Faves

This post is in partnership with SheaMoisture.

For Black women, there’s one compliment that will boost our confidence like none other: “Come through hair!” You know the vibe! Walking into a room with folks acknowledging that your hair is laid for the gawds, and the effort that it took to get it there, is a top five feeling. And with the holiday season just weeks away, you’ll be hearing that quite often. Between Thanksgiving gatherings with the family, Friendsgiving, company parties, and Christmas get-togethers, the opportunities to let your hair show up and show out aren’t too far away.

Apart from the holiday stuntin’, the end-of-year slow down is also the perfect opportunity to reevaluate the year your hair has had. Whether you kept it cute with protective braids, went big with blowouts, or let loose with textured twist-outs, this is the perfect time to give your hair the gift of TLC - tender lovin’ curls. Like the weather, our hair goes through seasons and has different needs depending on what we’ve put it through. Perhaps the transition into fall/winter has left your curls a bit parched and in need of some serious hydration. Or maybe your strands could use some restorative conditioning after taking it down from a convenient protective style. No matter what category you fall into, SheaMoisture has hundreds of ways that you can clean, treat and refresh your hair for a healthy shine that will bring you into the new year right. Bring your curls back to life with the nourishing and fragrant Coconut & Hibiscus line. Boosted with natural ingredients such as coconut oil, neem oil, carrot oil, and shea butter, this line is the antidote to reviving thirsty, dehydrated hair. Even better - with SheaMoisture’s custom quiz, you can get a hair analysis that will lead you to the right products for your hair needs. Say hello to sleek edges, and moisturized, stronger strands.

In need of a little hair-spiration? We got you covered! xoNecole and SheaMoisture have teamed up with three natural hair influencers to debut their holiday hair looks. Meet Ambrosia Malbrough, Jasmin Moses, and Daye Covington - beauty bawses who’ve created some incredible holiday looks that are stylish and easy to achieve. They also gave us the scoop on the SheaMoisture products they’re loving right now, as well as their 2023 hair goals.

Ladies, This Is How To Date Smart Instead Of Hard

While recently talking to a couple of early 30-something never-been-married-before women about how much they want to settle down, and yet, at the same time, they’ve gotten to the point where they almost loathe the thought of dating, I got inspired to write this article.
