Before we get started, let’s look at some of the best tips for styling thinning hair and how to deal with hair loss.
Thin Hair Styling Tips
Before washing, detangle hair with a wide tooth comb or brush. Fine hair tends to be tangly when wet, so it’s best to start off the washing process with hair that is combed through and smooth.
When washing, focus on the scalp first before moving to the ends of the hair. The scalp tends to have the most build up, so it’s important to remove oils from this area first. As you wash and condition be sure to use the pads of hands and not scrub with finger nails, this can cause damage to the scalp for those who have fine, thin hair. Lastly, although hot showers feel amazing, we suggest showering in a mild- cool temperature to help increase shine and minimize hair loss.
When styling, avoid using products that contain heavy oils to help keep hair light and breezy. Texturizers like Toppik Root Volumizing Spray are great to use to give fine, thin hair added body and volume. Hair tools like curling irons, crimping irons or flat irons are also a great way to create the appearance of fuller hair.
Hair Loss Tips
Dealing with hair loss can be difficult to endure in any situation but even more so when hair is already fine and thin. Whether it’s from hormonal changes or medical issues, it’s important to have the right tools in place to deal with the challenges that come with hair loss.
Here are some tips to help manage and prevent hair loss:
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle by nurturing your body with supplements that contain vitamin B, calcium, and zinc and by eating foods that are high in protein while also drinking an adequate amount of water.
- Take care of your hair by keeping it clean and using products that are not harsh and damaging.
- Avoid harsh hair styles, such as pulling it back too tight or using the wrong brush.
Now that you have the styling tips that you need, let’s look at our favorite date night hairstyles for men and women with fine, thin or thinning hair.
