So, your hair is thinning, more scalp than normal is showing… and you’re pretty upset.
That makes you… well… human.
Male or female, the human reaction to thinning hair is hard-wired - baked into the brain's prefrontal cortex. Thinning hair is a universal symbol of aging. It’s depressing, upsetting, and anxiety-inducing.
Ask a man who is losing his hair how he feels about his looks? Does he think about his thinning hair every day? Does he suddenly feel older? Less virile? Less confident? Now ask yourself or a female friend with thinning hair how she feels. You guessed it… exactly the same.
In the grand scheme of things, thinning hair should not be a traumatic experience. Think about it. You have your health. Your job. Your family. So, what’s the big deal if your tresses are showing a little age?
WHAT’S A GIRL TO DO?
Take a deep breath. Put things into perspective. And realize this, as odd as it sounds, there has never been a ‘better time’ to have thinning hair. In 2021, there are some remarkable products, treatments, and techniques to preserve your hair and bring back the look of fullness.
It’s time to pump up volume and improve thinning hair with a few quick steps:
- Try a moisturising hair mask for immediate hydration. Leave on overnight for an extra burst of moisture.
- Then, forget your favourite shampoo and opt for a hydrating, conditioning shampoo and matched conditioner. Mixing brands can work, but when you use a matched pair – not a cheap dollar store pair – the levels of vitamins, minerals, moisturisers, and surfactants will be balanced in Goldilocks proportions. Your results should be more consistent.
- Try a hair enhancer, like our Volume Enhancing Foam. Basically volume-in-a-bottle, this breakthrough product can make hair look fuller, feel thicker, and perform better.
Note: Stay away from any shampoo containing sulfate detergents, like sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, and ammonium laureth sulfate. These chemicals strip away too much of the natural oils required to keep hair healthy and hydrated. Your hair comes away looking dry and your scalp can look irritated.
THE CUT MATTERS
Trust the pros when it comes to cuts and styles. There is a consensus among stylists about which styles help make thinning hair look fuller, and the answer is textured cuts. Hair that has a lot of layers for volume and movement. While each face is different, and your stylist should be the ultimate reference, hair lengths that fall below your ear but just above your collarbone are best for thinning hair.
As always, make sure to use the best products when it comes to your hair. Our Volumising Hair Collection is the perfect trio that works in tandem to treat the scalp, nourish dry strands, and add volume to fine and thinning hair.
