Preventing Hair Loss
Hair loss is nothing to be ashamed of. Daily hair shedding is normal, but certain factors can lead to larger amounts of hair thinning and damage. For many women, this can be substantial, visible, and uncomfortable. Whatever hair loss solution you pursue, use these easy tips to increase your chances of success.
Brushes that come with plastic or metal bristles can be harsh on your hair and do damage while you’re trying to untangle knots. Using a brush with a blow dryer can also cause damage to your hair follicles. Instead, use a salon-quality brush made of soft bristles.
Keep It Cool
Too much direct heat can damage hair, so if you’re trying to prevent hair loss and thinning, air-dry instead. It may take longer, but it’s easier and will also help your hair stay healthy. If you must use a styling tool, remember to keep it on the lowest heat setting possible.
Easy on the Color
Hair dye and chemical highlights can damage your hair. If you want to color your hair, choose strategic highlights that are more similar to the color of your scalp. That way, you can hide some of the thinning and also make your roots look thicker.
Try a New Part
Hair naturally rests against your scalp when it’s consistently brushed the same way. If you switch it up and change the direction of the part, your hair will stand away from your scalp and look thicker. This is a fun way to add more volume and change your look!
Even More Volume
If your hair is thinning, you may want to change your haircut altogether to suit your desired look. The best fix is to ask for “a lot of layers” placed throughout your hair, not just at the bottom. This will add volume and make your hair look more full from multiple angles.
Who doesn’t love a massage? Rub coconut oil or olive oil into your hair in circular motions before you shampoo and wash it. Increasing circulation is one way to keep your roots and follicles actively growing hair.
