Like clockwork, in spring every gym fills to capacity in their effort to get their bodies into bathing suit readiness. We want to make ourselves look as good as we can, especially during the summer when we show more skin.  No matter how your body looks, people still look at your hair. It’s a big part of us and the beach body image we want to have.

The cold winter weather and unpredictable spring conditions can put our hair through a lot. A few simple steps are all it takes to keep your hair looking healthy and summer-ready all year long.

Summer Ready Hair - San Ramon, CAPay a Visit to Your Hair Stylist

Getting your hair cut is the first step. If your hair becomes dry and develops split ends, having a professional trimming up your ends will automatically make your hair look fuller and longer.

Take a Selfie of the Top of Your Head

At least once a month take the time to self-check your hair and scalp. Pay close attention to how full your hair is, and the consistency of your hair. You can even take a photo of the top of your head. If you notice you have excessive hair thinning it is essential to see a hair loss professional. If you have bald spots that have developed it could be a sign of a more serious condition that often can be successfully managed at a hair loss studio.

Stop the Tight Pony Tails

The ponytail or putting your hair in a tight bun might be a quick hairstyle that gets your hair off your neck. Those hairstyles can actually be a cause of hair loss. Allowing your hair to be loose help maintain a healthier scalp. Tight hairstyles can cause a condition known as Traction Alopecia. It’s a condition that could lead to baldness. If bald areas develop, female hair replacements are a great solution to give you back your hair. It is a non-surgical hair system that feels, moves, and looks as real as your own natural hair.

Hydrate and Condition Your Hair

Your hair and scalp need to be hydrated to be healthy. If you suffer from hair that is dull, dry, or damaged the fastest way to help resolve the issue is with deep conditioning. A hair stylist can start you off on this treatment. You can continue to use deep conditioning as part of your home routine. What you need are a high-quality conditioner and a shower cap. Just shampoo your hair and condition your hair. After you apply the conditioner place the shower cap over your hair for 15 minutes. Then remove and rinse your hair.

Update Your Hair Products

Many of us keep hair products around for much longer than we should. Just like many other products, some can lose their effectiveness over time. Go through the products you have for your hand and get rid of any that have expired or that you know you have held on to for quite some time.
