This is just one of the many things as a girl that I didn’t even think about when I started training.
My other issues were my nails (I wore Acrylic nails since I was about 13) I miss them!!! But, I love Jiu Jitsu more! sooo….. SACRIFICE #2. Pedicures- 2 seconds on the mats and your French tip is missing. I still get them but, they don’t always look real pretty. Mat burns (on your face) this really upsets my Mom but, not as bad as the many shiners I’ve had. Just to name a few…
All in all…I wouldn’t trade in Jiu Jitsu for any of the above (might have to shave my head though ;))
A few things to try if you do have long hair. This applies to men as-well:
Goody Stay Put Ponytail Holders.
Scunci No-Slip Grip Skinny Hair Tie
