There’s no shame in acknowledging that your hair is thinning. It happens to the best of us. The reality is that hair loss can be caused by everything from genetics to a poor diet. The sooner you make the decision to do something about it, the better off you’ll be. Luckily, there are a few easy ways you can get into the game and give your mane a healthy boost.
Cleanse & Condition
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Choose a shampoo formulated to gently cleanse and eliminate build-up. The Shampoo was created specifically to do just that, increasing hair strength and density. But you can’t stop there. The Conditioner is a must to protect your hair and scalp from dryness and irritation – two major contributors to hair loss.
When every strand counts, you have to act like it. Be as tough as you want in your daily life, but give your hair a break. The days of a rough towel dry after jumping out of the shower have to be put behind you. As hair thins, it weakens so anything that can be done to avoid breakage should be taken seriously. For gentle drying, we recommend using The Brush Dryer to create volume and fullness prior to styling.
Choosing the right styling products is where the rubber meets the road. You want something lightweight to add volume without weighing your hair down. We recommend applying a small amount of our Thickening Cream to towel-dried hair to set the foundation for styling a fuller look. Use it on its own or with our Grooming Spray for a little extra hold. Just make sure you don’t overdo it. Too much product can lead to a flat, crispy look that highlights your hair loss.
You can’t go wrong with a back-swept style and well-trimmed facial hair. It’s a classic, but rugged cut that allows you to mask your thinning hair by keeping a bit more length up top. David Beckham has been successfully rocking this timeless look for years. If you’re looking for something a bit edgier, consider a slick side-part or pompadour with a high fade. Both of these hip looks take the attention away from your thinning locks and put it squarely on your style instead.
Dial in your Diet
Lean proteins and healthy fats are your hair’s best friend. Think chicken breast, wild salmon, walnuts and eggs. In this fight, it’s OK to let your inner caveman reign supreme. The heart-healthy Omega-3s in these foods are crucial to maintaining hair health and the B vitamins you’ll find are key in keeping your hair follicles in working order. We also recommend adding a quality multivitamin to your daily routine to make sure you’re stocked up on necessary micro-nutrients like zinc, magnesium and vitamin C. You will be blown away by the difference you see in your hair once you get your diet in check.
