Exercising In A Hair System

Can I Exercise While Wearing A Hair Replacement System from Cochrane & Co in London?

Whether it’s due to genetics, health reasons, lifestyle changes or something else – men will sometimes opt for hair replacement systems to have a more natural appearance.

While hair replacement systems are a great alternative, they do require certain levels of attention. This is because they are usually made of natural hair and this hair, much like any other, requires care. In addition, you also need to keep in mind the fact that the system is bonded to your hair with a special bonding glue or liquid in order to remain fixed on your head in a more solid way.

While you may be comfortable with your hair system in the daily course of life, it’s also natural to wonder whether you can exercise or swim with it on. Let’s take a closer look.


You Can Exercise With A Hair System On

The short answer to the question “can I work out with a hair system on” is a definitive “yes”. However, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind. The first is that you should avoid exercising between 24 and 48 after you’ve had your hair replacement system put on. This will give the bonding liquid or glue enough time to set on the head. Once this is done and you’re ready to exercise, you can go ahead. 

However, bear in mind that when you go to the gym, your body will naturally sweat and this will also increase the body temperature which may affect the bonding of the hair piece. As a result, and to remain confident, it’s advisable to wear a sweatband not only to keep the hair piece in place more securely but also to absorb any excess sweat.

Remember that while the body temperature increases, the bonding glue or adhesive may soften and it will once again solidify when the body temperature cools down naturally. 

You Can Swim Wearing Your Hair System

Swimming with a hair system on is also perfectly fine. However, it’s important to consider the fact that the wetness of the water can create extra weight for the hair and there may be a loosening of the hair piece although it’s highly unlikely that it will fall off.

In addition, most swimming pools are filled with water that contains chlorine. While this is not necessarily harmful to the hairpiece, it can affect the quality of the hair itself and as a result, it’s highly advisable that you swim with a swimming cap to ensure you look after your hair better and so that it lasts longer.
