Thinning hair, along with hair loss, is one of the most commonly discussed topics amongst women of all ages.
There are many reasons as to why women suffer from thinning hair, and some of the most common reasons include: change in their hormonal condition, as well as thyroid disease.
Here’s the good news though – there are many ways to stop hair thinning, and even re-grow new hair, and in this article, we’re going to look at 7 of the most effective tips.
1. Heat Styling Products – Limit Their Use
If you use hair straighteners, curling irons, or blow dryers, hair breakage can occur and the condition can get worse.
Overexposure in the sun can also cause hair damage. As such, whenever you go outdoors, you should wear a hat. You can also use sunscreen on your hair using specially formulated gels that are meant for this purpose.
2. Stress Levels Need To Go Down!
If you have a lot of stress in your life, you can experience hair loss. Reducing your stress levels is definitely something you need to do (if you don’t want to suffer from thinning hair).
By taking yoga classes, or simply relaxing or meditating each day can help you get your stress under control.
3. Intensive Daily Treatments
One of the best hair care products you can use are intensive treatments that contain humectants like panthenol (a derivative of vitamin B5) as part of the ingredients, which can help to retain moisture in your hair.
Plus, by massaging the intensive treatment into your scalp, you can actually help to stimulate blood circulation. This action also helps to exfoliate and cleanse your scalp, thus maintaining your hair’s health, as well as stimulating natural hair growth.
4. Use a Volumizing Shampoo When You Wash Your Hair
If you want to plump your hair up, making it look thicker than it actually is, treating your thinning hair with a volumizing shampoo that contains wheat and rice proteins can help you achieve this overall effect.
5. Taking Certain Vitamins
Hair loss can sometimes be caused by nutritional deficiencies.
If you increase your intake of certain vitamins like B6, it can activate hair production to some degree, making it stronger and helping it to grow faster than it typically does.
6. Super Hold Hairsprays – Avoid Them!
One way you can get thin hair to break easily is to use super-hold hairsprays which can break your hair at the shaft, causing it to get thin very quickly.
You should use a flexible hold hairspray instead, which will reduce the possibility of breaking or damaging your hair.
7. Condition Your Hair Daily
You can cause your hair to break or fall out by using chemical treatments and heated styling tools.
However, there are amino acids in certain conditioners that can help protect your hair from this type of damage in most cases.
Using the tips presented in this article, you may see a noticeable difference in the thickness of your hair, or at least prevent more of it from falling out. Hopefully these suggestions will help you get back on track to having that thick full head of hair that you have always had.
