A common question that we hear nearly every day is, “I work out daily; will this effect the quality of my hair extensions?” Very simply put, the answer is no. You can certainly maintain the quality of your extensions while managing a consistent fitness regime. It’s all about choosing the right installation method and taking the time to educate yourself on how to properly preserve your extensions throughout your workouts.
One way to keep your hair extensions intact during a workout is to keep your hair ties or head bands loose enough for the hair to breathe, which will help you avoid putting extra stress on the hair. Try this with a traditional high ponytail to help keep your extensions away from the sweat on your face and neck. Additionally, if you’re hitting the gym soon after visiting your hairstylist, a loose ponytail will help you to keep your post-salon hairstyle intact for a longer period of time.
Braiding your hair before heading to the gym is also a great idea. As long as you are not concerned about maintaining a particular hairstyle, braids will be a real help when it comes to keeping your hair away for the acidity of your sweat. What’s even more, they will help to keep your extensions from drying out and will prevent damage from occurring.
If your workouts involve a pool or end with a few minutes in the sauna, you can keep your strands salon-chic by wearing a swimming cap. While they won’t cause irreparable damage, the moisture and frizz can cause some tangles. If you’re protective of your mane like we are, avoid the situation and keep your extensions covered during these workouts or activities.
Follow up with a bit of post-workout care by hitting the showers. Consult with your hairstylist for recommendations on the best shampoos and conditioners to ensure that you are giving your extensions the best treatment possible.
Remember, just because you live a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean you should be unable to experience the glamour of having great hair. Call Mane of Your Dreams today to set up a consultation.
When it comes to hair loss, we can understand how you must be feeling; you’re embarrassed, you’re confused, and you’re looking for a solution – fast! Each and every day, I have people come to me and ask if I can help them with this problem and the answer is yes, of course I can! Regardless of whether you have thin hair, thinning hair, fine hair or hair that just doesn’t grow as fast as you’d like, I can help.
If we were to sit here and list all of the factors that may lead to the thinning of your hair, we’d be here all day. So to narrow down our focus, let’s talk about one particular type of surgery that you probably wouldn’t expect to affect your hair follicles: gastric bypass.
Roughly half of the women who have undergone gastric bypass surgery have reported noticing loss or thinning of hair. Why does this happen? Well when your body begins to rapidly lose weight, it in turn results in the reduction of nutrients and vitamins that attribute to the health of your hair. Not only this, but with significant weight loss comes a fluctuation in hormone levels, which causes hair growth to change or be stunted.
Before you start panicking, it’s important to understand that this hair loss is temporary in most cases. So instead of switching up your prescription routine or taking additional supplements, try something a bit less drastic – and less dangerous. Our hair extension method is applied with the utmost care and by utilizing the best products made especially for my company, we can offer a safe and affordable alternative to glue and sewing methods.
