Tips for Staying Cool in the Summer

On hot summer days, we all want to spend as much time as possible outside, soaking up the sun and making memories. While there’s nothing wrong with this, it’s important to remember to stay hydrated and keep cool. If you struggle with staying cool during the summer, here are some tips on how to avoid heat exhaustion!

  1. Get rid of some hair

Excess hair can trap heat and sweat in, making it difficult for your body to regulate its temperature. If you want to go bare this summer in order to stay cool, make sure that your scalp is protected against the sun by applying a high-SPF sunblock.

If you want to go bare but are worried about maintaining the hairstyle, Rejuvenate SMP recommends scalp micropigmentation to even out any potential areas that are patchy or uneven.

  • Sip, don’t chug water

Chugging water will make you nauseous faster than it will hydrate you. Sipping room temperature water will hydrate you without making you feel sick. Keep your bottle full at all times so you don’t have to worry about dehydration.

  • Limit time outside

You can follow every tip and trick out there to avoid heat exhaustion, but they can all only go so far. When it comes down to it, you shouldn’t push your limits in the summer heat. Limit the amount of time you spend outside and take frequent breaks to prevent any catastrophes from occurring.

  • Eat a balanced meal

While hot dogs and funnel cakes are staples of the summer, they shouldn’t be the only thing that you eat. Be sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables this summer so that your body is well-prepared to deal with the rising temperatures. Many fruits, like watermelon, contain a lot of water – you’ll stay hydrated while enjoying a snack!

Dealing with Hair Loss at Young Age

When we think of hair loss, we usually imagine someone in their later years. Many people don’t know that you can begin losing your hair at a young age, even in your teenage years!

I decided to research more about hair loss at a young age for myself. Keep reading to see what   I found!

Can You Really Lose Hair at a Young Age?

Unfortunately, it is possible for young people to experience hair thinning. One blog post I found told the story of a boy as young as 10 years old going to the dermatologist for a bald spot appearing on the crown of his head. Of course, most people experiencing hair loss at a young age experience it during their early twenties.

No matter where it happens, hair loss in young people is caused by a variety of different reasons.

Causes of Hair Loss at a Young Age

I came across a ton of different reasons why young people may be losing their hair. Check them out below:

  • Extreme hormonal changes
  • Genetic History
  • Stress
  • Disease and illness
  • Medicine or medical treatments (such as chemotherapy)
  • Extended pressure on the hair (from hats, hair bands, or certain hairstyles)
  • Trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling)
  • Autoimmune Disorders (such as alopecia areata)

Make a visit to your dermatologist to better pinpoint the exact cause of your hair loss.

Treating Hair Loss at a Young Age

Finding out exactly what is causing your hair loss is the first step in figuring out what treatment plan to pursue. Your doctor may suggest the following:

  • Medicine
  • Topical Treatments
  • Hair Growth Stimulating Shampoos
  • Scalp micropigmentation from companies like Scottsdale Hairlines (fills in hairline)
  • Hair transplant

Again, speak with your doctor to find the best course of treatment for you!

Alcohol and Hair Loss

Alcohol and Hair Loss

Everyone knows that excessive drinking can have a profound effect on the body and your overall health, alcohol can affect your appearance as well.  One of the ways in which alcohol can alter your looks is by promoting hair loss.

Keep reading to understand exactly how alcohol can make you lose your hair and what you can do to avoid it.

What is Needed for Healthy Hair Growth?

A healthy scalp is crucial for healthy hair. To maintain a healthy scalp, it is important that you ingest the proper amount of vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates and proteins to ensure that your scalp is as healthy as it can be.

Alcohol can interfere with obtaining the nutrients you need for healthy scalp growth. Alcohol, especially beer, is full of empty calories that provide absolutely no nutritional value, depriving your scalp of the nutrients it needs to grow. Excessive drinking multiples this effect, creating such unhealthy conditions on your scalp that your hair begins to fall out.

Other Ways Binge Drinking Effects Hair Growth

Dehydration

A classic side effect of drinking excessive amounts of alcohol is dehydration. Dehydration keeps moisture away from your scalp, leaving your hair not only dry, but brittle too. Hair may fall out easier when showering or brushing your hair.

Absorption of Nutrients

Excessive drinking can harm the lining of the stomach, making it hard for the body to absorb the nutrients it needs to facilitate hair growth.

What You Can Do to Combat These Effects

The first thing to do is curb your drinking habits, but that of course is easier said than done. In the meantime, consider trying out oral pills or topical treatments. More immediate solutions include wigs or micropigmentation services such as those offered by Team Micro. No matter what you route you choose, your confidence will be back in no time.
