Hair thinning is surprisingly common in women because as you get older, your hair naturally becomes finer.
Luckily, there are a few easy things you can do to stop hair thinning and have gorgeous, fuller-looking hair.
TIPS FOR FULLER HAIR
Eat more protein. Hair is made of protein so adequate daily intake of protein-rich food is essential to hair health.
Hair thinning is often caused by a biotin deficiency. Taking a biotin supplement can thicken your hair and stimulate new hair growth.
To thicken your hair, use a biotin-infused volumizing shampoo like this one.
Avoid over-washing and under-washing your hair. Washing your hair 3 times a week is the sweet spot for fuller hair.
Be gentle when towel drying. Instead of rubbing your hair with a towel after washing, gently squeeze out the excess moisture and wrap it up in a hair dry towel like this one.
Let your hair air dry. Repeated use of hair dryers and irons can cause breakage and thinning.
To reduce breakage, don’t brush your hair while it’s wet unless you use a detangler hair brush like this.
Avoid over styling and excessive brushing which can cause damage, breakage and hair loss.
Maximum hold hairspray can fracture the hair shaft as you brush it out. Instead, use a flexible hold volumizing hairspray like this.
Try to avoid permanent hair dyes, bleaching, perming and chemical straightening. Harsh products are damaging and can cause breakage.
Avoid too-tight ponytails and teasing which puts a lot of tension on your hair.
Once a week, give yourself a scalp massage with your favorite carrier oil like coconut oil or sweet almond oil. Massaging your scalp with natural oil stimulates hair growth by providing essential fatty acids to your hair follicles.
Just like the skin on your face, your scalp loses collagen as you age, causing dormant hair follicles and slow hair growth. A hair growth roller reverses hair thinning by stimulating new collagen growth.
To cover sparse patches, use a hair building fiber spray like this one which will make you hair look instantly fuller and thicker.
