Tips for thin hair
Shampoo is important
Choosing the right shampoo is important for your hair health and thin hair. Avoid products with harsh detergents, like sodium lauryl sulfate,which can cause breakage. When you suds up, don’t rub shampoo into the hair itself. Instead, gently massage it into your scalp and let it slide down through your locks.
Some makeup.. why not
You use makeup on your face, so why not on your scalp? Try a tinted hair spray or a colored powder made specifically to disguise hair loss. These come with an applicator like the kind you use to apply eye shadow. Choose a shade that matches your roots. Apply the product lightly — tap the excess off the brush and dab it gently onto your scalp. If you want permenant solution you can try scalp pigmentation.
When dyeing thin hair, choose a shade that’s close to your natural color. The less contrast between your hair and scalp, the better. Avoid bleaching the dramatic color change requires more chemicals, which can make hair break.
Do not hesitate to use conditioner
Hair, whether it’s thick or thin..needs moisture to bounce and shine. If yours needs a boost, try conditioner. You might think it’ll weigh down your locks, but dry tresses will absorb the product. Conditioner can make your hair more manageable, add shine, and protect it from breakage.
Switch up your hair style
A layered cut can add bounce and fullness. Sweep thinning hair into an updo, or add clip-ons hairpieces for a look that’s more subtle than a full wig. Avoid tight styles such as cornrows, ponytails, or pigtails. They can cause breakage and pull out hair at the root, causing scarring that prevents regrowth.
Do not tease
Teasing seems like an easy way to give your locks a boost, but it can damage your hair and cause split ends and fly-aways. Save it for special occasions, and get it done at a salon to help prevent breakage. Combs designed to sit on the crown of your head and push hair up can give you a lift without the damage.
It’s OK to use a round brush, hot rollers, blow driers, and curling or straightening irons. Just choose a cool setting and don’t overdo it. Use a heat-protectant spray or gel. When your tresses are dry, stop. If you use gel or spray, comb your hair first, before it dries, or the strands will harden and get brittle.
