Thinning hair is an issue for many women whether you are relaxed, natural, or colored. For one not all women are able to grow thick hair based on genetics. Your diet and stress can have a part in thinning hair but external factors and caring for your hair could also play a significant part on why your hair is thinning.
If you are experiencing thinning hair you have come to the right place to learn how to care for your hair specifically. You may not be able to change the state of your thin hair if you got it from genetics but you will at least know how to care for it. Additionally if you used to have thick hair and now your hair is now thin, then these tips will get you right back to where you were before.
Thinning hair can be the result of chemical usage, hair breakage from poor care, or even just a sign that the roots and the hair follicles are weak from not receiving the proper hair treatments. So lets get right into the tips.
Be gentle when detangling – Make sure you are showing your hair TLC whenever you place your hands in your tresses. If you are upset or don’t have enough time to do your hair, it would not be a great idea to begin detangling. Wait until you have enough time to really dedicate to your strands so that you can get your detangling done without added stress.
Add protein treatment to your regimen – Whenever you see broken hairs on your clothes, in the sink, and blowing in the wind this means your hair is very weak and will break at any given moment and you need to add a protein treatment to your hair regimen. There are many to choose from like reconstructors, deep penetrating, and light treatments.
Choose the best one for the state of your hair, but if you haven’t done one in a while a hardcore protein treatment might snap those strands right back into shape. Light treatments are great for weekly maintenance.
Be mindful of your protective styles – When styling your hair, it is easy to want to make your protective styles as tight as possible so it can last longer. But that practice would wreak havoc on your hair strands, especially your edges. Try loose styles like buns or twists and additionally it would be best to keep your protective styles in from 6-8 weeks maximum.
Get rid of those split ends – You may think you are keeping you split ends for length, but split ends make your hair look even thinner. You want to keep the strand thick from root to tip so once you trim you hair, expect it to appear thick overall.
