While solutions are available, finding the best way to deal with hair loss can be challenging. Many men and women experiencing hair loss want to reclaim their full head of hair without sacrificing their lifestyle.
If you are considering a hair restoration system, you're probably wondering how it will impact your ability to continue your active lifestyle. A question that we are often asked is can I go swimming with a hair restoration system? While it may come as a surprise, a hair restoration system from Mane Image enables you to continue your lifestyle, regardless of how strenuous the activities you participate in or how active you are.
What Is a Hair Restoration System?
A hair restoration system is a non-surgical hair loss solution that provides complete or partial coverage of the hair loss on your head. Hair restoration systems are a modern hair loss solution for men and women that seamlessly integrates natural or synthetic hair with your existing hair.
Today's hair replacement systems have evolved and are so artistically and technologically advanced that they are virtually undetectable. Hair replacement systems are fully customized and an increasingly popular alternative to a surgical hair transplant because they are indistinguishable from your natural hair and enable you to maintain your active lifestyle.
Can You Go Swimming With a Hair Restoration System?
One of the reasons hair restoration systems are such a popular solution for hair loss is that it doesn't impact your ability to enjoy outdoor activities, such as swimming. A custom hair restoration system allows you to live your life without limitations and engage in your favorite activities, including strenuous exercise and swimming.
Getting your hair restoration system wet in the shower, at the beach, or in the pool is not an issue. Like your natural hair, washing your hair restoration system in freshwater is part of routine maintenance. However, like your natural hair, you should take some precautions before swimming to protect your hair restoration system.
Have you ever been swimming, and after you get out of the ocean or pool, you notice that your skin feels dry? Your skin feels dry due to the effects of salt, chlorine, and other minerals and chemicals found in pools, lakes, and oceans.
Swimming has the same effect on your hair and can also dry out your hair restoration system. However, by taking a few simple precautions, you can enjoy your summer and ensure your hair restoration system remains in great shape.
How to Protect Your Hair Restoration System While Swimming
Like your natural hair, the hair used in your hair restoration system is porous and absorbs water like a sponge. If you jump in the water with dry hair, your hair system soaks up water and the chemical compounds, such as chlorine and salt, contained in the water.
Rinsing your hair with fresh water will limit the chlorine or salt your hair restoration system will absorb. After swimming, rinse your hair with fresh water to wash out excess salt or chlorine. It's also essential to use generous amounts of conditioner designed for hair restoration systems to help restore and maintain the softness and shine.
While there is no way to eliminate the absorption of salt and chlorine, taking precautions can minimize the exposure. In addition to rinsing your hair restoration system in freshwater before and after swimming, consider wearing a swimming cap to protect your hair and use an adhesive designed for the water.
