Thin Hair Problems: What To Do About It

Posted March 6, 2017 by in Beauty

There can be many reasons for hair growing thin. It can be down to a simple reason such as using too many tools and products on your hair every single day. Or it can be due to your hormones or excessive stress in your life. Whatever the reason for your thin locks, it’s time to make some changes to ensure you have full hair again. That way, you will love looking in the mirror again! Here are some things you can do if you are dealing with thin hair:

Change Your Shampoo and Conditioner

For starters, it might be a good idea to look at your current shampoo and conditioner. You need to check whether it’s the right type for your hair. After all, if you are using one which isn’t right for your hair condition, it could be causing your hair to become thin and weak. In fact, you might want to swap to a volumizing shampoo which will ensure you have thick and healthy locks sooner rather than later. And make sure you aren’t overusing your shampoo — if you are using it every day, it can make your hair lose its shine. Plus, it might go thin and greasy quickly.

So start giving your hair a couple of days off between shampoos. Use dry shampoo in the meantime to keep your hair looking fabulous.

Consider Hair Extensions for Volume

If you are lacking in volume, and want to boost your locks, you should consider hair extensions. When most people think about hair extension, they think about length; but extension can be great for adding volume, too. Plus, you won’t have to wait for ages for a solution. It’ll be an instant fix! If you are worried about the cost of extensions at the salon, consider buying some online. After all, tape in hair extensions can be easily fitted and can last up to a three months. There are also a ton of Youtube videos on how to apply them yourself. Clip-in extensions are another great options.

Look Into Hair Growth Treatments

If the above things don’t work for you, may need to try a hair growth treatment like minoxidil which is applied to the scalp twice a day. Within a couple of months, you will start to notice fuller hair. You can read more about this option in this article. Otherwise, go and speak with your doctor about your thin hair problems since it could be a hormonal issue.

Another option for you is the Trico PH system from Lasio. I have used it personally and I really like it. It’s especially great for those suffering hair loss due to pregnancy.

Reduce Your Stress

If your hair is thinning, stress could be the culprit. This will be difficult, but you’ll have to figure out why you’re stressed and take baby steps from there. For example, it might be that you find ways to calm down after a stressful day at work such as exercise. And also, if you are under overwhelming stress, more sleep can often be the answer.

    Have you heard of
    They are all natural plant-based hair fibers that you sprinkle on and they cling to the hair and stay in place until shampooed. You can even comb it, take a shower or swim! I used it and my results were incredible. I would attach a picture but there’s nowhere to do that on here. There are similar type products but none that are plant-based keratin.

    I have struggled with thin hair from the time I was very young and as I’ve gotten older it has even gotten thinner. My dad wore a toupee and my Mom a wig. For the first time, I found something and no longer self-conscious of my thinning hair so I thought I’d share.
