Not all of us are born with thick hair and if you do have thin hair, you shouldn’t despair just yet. First of all, having thin hair means there’s less hair to worry about styling wise. On the other hand, thin hair means you’re limited with the styles available to you and those hairdos may not hold up and lack volume. While you can utilize certain methods to conceal thin hair, it’s best to properly care for your hair through diet and lifestyle changes to maximize your thin hair potential. In today’s blog post, we’ll be talking about product recommendations, diet changes, and other accessories for your thin hair.
The texture and thickness of your hair is predetermined when you’re born, but there are factors affecting your hair that you can control. The food you eat is one of these things and truly has a direct impact on the appearance of your hair. One of the first things you want to do is check your diet for any vitamin deficiencies or lack of proper nutrients.
A few suggestions for your diet that will affect your thin hair include:
Collagen is a great way to help prevent against future hair loss by improving your blood circulation and increasing amino acids into your body which fight against thin hair.
Vitamin B is a great vitamin that have many benefits that will help your nails, skin, and of course hair be healthier. Eat foods with lots of vitamin B such as eggs, spinach, etc. If you’re unable to eat enough food with vitamin B, take a supplement to ensure you’re getting enough.
Having fruit in the morning or throughout the day will help with hair growth as fruit such as berries are loaded with vitamin C as well as antioxidants and the like.
In addition to the foods you consume, the lifestyle choices you make also influence your hair thickness and appearance. Using some of the tips below, you can ensure your fine hair is maximized for volume.
Stress is honestly something that can negativity affect many different areas of your life including your hair. If you’re constantly under a lot of stress, this can be a factor in the appearance of your hair including exaggerating your volume issues. Be sure to give yourself enough time for self-care to rejuvenate yourself which will in turn help keep your hair as healthy as possible.
Avoid the Heat
As we’ve mentioned countless time on the blog, you want to keep the hot tool use to a minimum to avoid damaging your hair especially if you have thin hair. When and/or you decide to use hot tools, be sure to use a heat protectant, preferably a natural one.
Let’s talk about some pointers to best care for your thin hair:
Feel Up Your Scalp
Actually, a great way to help promote hair growth is to give yourself a scalp massage a few minutes a day. Not only does this promote hair growth, but it also increases blood flow to the scalp while simulating hair follicles.
Try Using Conditioner Only At The Ends of Your Hair
Using a conditioner product on the ends of your hair will avoid weighing down your hair (if you had used conditioner on your roots) which will only make it appear thinner. Don’t forget, over conditioning your roots will lead to your hair becoming oily quicker as your scalp creates more oil to compensate.
Blow Dry Your Hair But Only Upside Down
The proper hair blowout is a quick and simple way of adding instant volume to your hair (in appearance only). Using a round brush while blowing drying your hair upside down will give an extra lift to your hair.
Avoid Growing Your Hair Too Long
One of the biggest mistakes you should avoid if you have thin hair is growing it out too long. The reason why is because most of the time thin hair tapers at the ends rather quickly so growing your hair out will only worsens the situation and makes it seem even thinner than it really is. Hair extensions are a great way to add quick length and volume without damaging your own natural hair. At Endless Hair Extensions, we’ve got you covered with our 100% Remy human hair extensions with a large enough selection for even the biggest hair dreams.
Be sure to use the right products in your hair care routine that targets the thin hair. See the list we’ve compiled below:
Light Texturizing Spray
Making use of light texturizing spray will definitely help give your hair a more voluminous look and feel. It will also help add natural texture which is great for thin hair that often struggles to hold a style. Remember to avoid using too much spray, however, as you don’t want to weigh down your hair.
Root Volume Spray
If you have thin hair, chances are you’re having volume issues at your roots. Using a root spray can help add extra volume to your hair especially around the crown of your head. Spray before blow drying your hair for an extra oomph.
