I want to get back to the gym, as it was recommended to me to not lift weights for 6 months after my follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) hair transplant. Well, I just recently hit my 6 month mark and am planning on getting back into shape. I was going to do one of those fitness boot camps for a month to get my body acclimated to exercise and weight training again. I plan on doing pretty heavy cardio as well. Needless to say, I am probably going to be sweating pretty hard.
I purchased some hair loss concealers a couple days ago, but haven’t had a chance to try them out yet. I ordered Toppik and Infinity. I am considering purchasing Nanogen as well. My question is, will these concealers come off with sweat or quick moving/running/sprinting? Should I purchase the “lock-on” mist that some of these companies advertise as being waterproof and windproof? I’d like to hear from someone who has some experience with this.
The locking mist does tend to really help keep the topical shaker products locked in. I’ve had many patients tell me they work out, go dancing, spend hours sweating at the beach, etc, and have no issues with the Toppik as long as they did lock it down with the mist. Some of the non-shaker products may run more with sweating. And anything involving a lot of liquid on the scalp may prove difficult, no matter how good of a job you do with the locking mist.
I think doing some trials on your own before sweating in front of a big group of people is a great idea. Put the concealers in, use the locking mist, and then do some heavy cardio on your own. This way you can evaluate and make any necessary adjustments without having to worry about others in the group seeing it.
Best of luck! Let us know how it goes.
