Summer is almost here and everyone will be hitting the beach and looking their best. It’s not a big issue for you. You’ve hit the gym and look awesome in your brand-new swimsuit. You’ve got the nice even tan that makes you look hot. But you are still uncomfortable going out in public. Why? You have thinning hair. However, you don’t have to worry about that. Pay attention to these and stride out with more confidence this summer.
Tip #1 – Get a Special Haircut
The first thing you want to do is get yourself a new haircut that minimizes thinning hair so that you can play up what you have to make it look as full and thick as possible. At National Hair Centers, we are experts in giving the appearance of fuller, thicker hair with our Fuller Look Salon Services. Our competitively priced package offers salon shampoo, cut and style along with a soothing scalp massage.
But what sets ours apart from the normal cut and style is that our stylists know how to accentuate what you have to make it look full. We also offer salon services that include Keratriplex conditioning treatment. This is a specially designed offering that can repair your thinning hair and strengthen it. All of this for a reasonable, competitive price!
Tip #2 – Protect Your Hair as Well as Your Skin
When you hit the beach, you will probably slather on a good layer of sunscreen with a high SPF number to keep from burning and exposing yourself to dangerous melanomas. But the UV rays that cause sunburns can also damage your hair. Save your thinning hair by covering it up on the beach with a hat. Today, it is actually possible to get beach hats that are specially designed with SPF protection for an added benefit.
Tip #3 – Don’t Starve Yourself and Stay Hydrated
During the summer, many people will go to great lengths to look good in their swimsuits. But extreme diets are not only bad for your long-term overall health, they can also damage your already thinning hair. When you starve yourself, it causes your body to redirect its energy to essential functions. This means that non-essential functions—like hair growth and regeneration—are left behind. Hair is essentially made up of protein. So instead of starving yourself, try a diet that has a lot of protein-rich foods like fish and legumes. Also, the same goes for staying hydrated. Always be sure to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated, but especially during the summer months.
Tip #4 – Turn Down the Hot Water
A lot of people feel like they have to have that hot, steamy shower first thing in the morning to get their day started. Many people realize that really hot water will dehydrate your skin. What they may not know is that it will also dehydrate hair strands. This can cause hair to become dry which can result in hair damage. If you have thinning hair, save the hair that you have by turning down the hot water. You should also wash your hair with the coolest water you can tolerate.
Tip #5 – Cut Back on the Heat
Steamy showers aren’t the only heat source problems that can damage your hair. Hair tools such as blow dryers and flat irons can also damage your thinning hair, making it harder to style in the long run. Use these implements on the lowest setting and only a few times a week. Save them for when you are going out for a special occasion and let your hair air dry the rest of the time.
You don’t have to be worried or uncomfortable about heading out in public this summer because of thinning hair. Take care of your hair by cutting back on the heat and direct sunlight as much as possible. But also, be sure to step in with us at National Hair Centers for a haircut and style that can maximize your thinning hair. Our competitively priced Fuller Look Salon Service can be the key to making sure that you make the most of your hair and help it to look fuller and richer than ever before.
