If your hair is thinning or falling out, there are styling products that can help you achieve the look of thicker and fuller hair without making the problem worse. In general, you should look for a quality shampoo, conditioner, and regrowth treatment if you are experiencing hair loss. But for the sake of this article, let’s talk about styling products and which ones are great for thinning hair.
First, you should make sure your brush and / or comb is helping and not hurting your hair. It’s possible that you could be pulling out more of your hair if you aren’t careful! We always recommend using a detangling, wide-toothed comb when your hair is wet. Or when using a brush, use a boar bristle. A boar bristle brush works best when brushing dry hair or use while styling. One thing to note is that different styles might require different brushes. For example, when giving yourself a blowout, a round brush is ideal and way more effective.
Secondly, you should give your hair a break from hot styling tools. If you just can’t avoid using a hair dryer, curling iron, straightener, or another tool, use it on the lowest heat setting that you can. Use a heat protectant spray to protect your hair from further damage. In addition, you should also make sure you are using quality hot styling tools. If you haven’t switched up your tools in decades, now may be the time or you could be further damaging your hair. Products these days are formulated to do less damage than those from the past. Remember, heat damage does not only come from hot styling tools. It’s possible that the sun can cause damage as well. There are SPF sprays for your hair that you can use if you spend a lot of time outside in the sun. The spray coupled with a hat can be a good way to protect your hair and scalp from the elements.
If your thinning hair is also feeling a bit dull, dry, and damaged, look for a leave-in conditioner gel or spray. This can help improve the look and texture of your hair and give it some much-needed extra moisture. It can also help detangle your hair and make it easier to brush. This can help stop you from pulling out any excess hair and keep your hair moisturized throughout the day.
If you need an instant boost, look for a thickening or texturizing treatment spray. It can provide body, volume, and lift quickly. This can help if you want to tease your hair to get even more volume.
Mousses are also great for adding instant volume. They can also add a lot of body and are generally best for those with curly or wavy hair that needs a boost. A serum can help stimulate hair follicles to help them grow while providing some shine and smoothness. It protects your hair while adding body, volume, and giving you some beautiful shine. If you just want a little extra shine instead, try a shine spray. It can help condition and improve the appearance without adding to any buildup in your hair.
A dry shampoo is not just for use in between washes. Dry shampoo can actually help add volume and body to your hair very quickly. Look for a volumizing version that you can use when you need to cleanse your hair, remove odors, and make your hair look good in a flash. It is not best to wash your hair every day unless you have very oily hair.
Lastly, you should use a hair spray to set your style and provide more body and volume. Look for a hair spray that will not make your hair crunchy but will provide hold and volume. Less is more with many of these products. Start with a little bit and add more if you need it. If you use too much, it could cause buildup or make your hair look greasy.
Be sure to look for products that help improve thinning hair while giving you the body and volume you crave. This means while you improve the look of your hair short-term, you are also improving it long-term as well.
