6 ways women can avoid thinning hair

As you get older, an obviously sparser hairline can be quite confronting, as can locks that lack colour or volume.

As you get older, an obviously sparser hairline can be quite confronting, as can locks that lack colour or volume.

While it’s natural to lose around 100 strands a day, there is a risk that your day-to-day lifestyle choices are making the process worse than it needs to be.

If you think your hair is looking a little on the thin side lately, there are several simple tips that can help remedy the problem. Of course, if these don’t do the trick it might be worthwhile seeing your doctor to determine if there’s an underlying health issue, or considering a dedicated hair restoration treatment. Click here to learn more about your options.

1. Reconsider your hairstyle

A tight hairstyle can cause stress on the delicate hairs of your hairline, which can ultimately lead to thinning.

If you’re wearing your hair in a tight ponytail, a slicked-back bun or something similarly that creates similar physical tension, it could be causing unnecessary hair loss.

2. Turn down the heat

If you use a hair straightener or curling iron, be sure not to leave it on one area for too long. The heat causes your hair to ‘fracture’, making it more brittle and prone to falling out. If you hear a sizzling sound or you burn your fingers, it might be time to change your straightening and styling techniques.

3. Avoid chemical treatments

Bleaching or lightening your hair can cause all sorts of damage to the strands of hair, weakening them and causing them to fall out. If you don’t like your natural colour, and you dye your hair regularly, be sure to get a deep-conditioning treatment from your hairdresser on a regular basis.

4. Adjust your diet

Eating foods that are high in iron, zinc and vitamin B12 can have a positive effect on your scalp’s health. If you have a diet full of leafy greens, nuts, fish and lean meat, you can give your hair every chance to revitalise.

5. Massage your scalp regularly

Don’t wait until you’re next at the hairdresser – give yourself a good head rub in the shower while you’re washing your hair. Massaging your scalp can improve circulation and has been found to stimulate hair growth.

6. Consider a dedicated treatment

If you’re finding your thinning hair has become a serious concern, it’s worth remembering that thinning hair is treatable – naturally, reliably and with only minimal adjustments to your routine.

    I took your advice and bought this highly expensive treatment, and have used it, and nothing else every time I wash my hair, daily mostly, and I can’t say I’ve noticed any thickening.
    The treatment only takes a small amount, and foams up nicely, so I’ve saved on not buying anything else since last February, that I must admit.
    All of the other factors you quote, I am very aware of and eat that many vegetables and healthy, natural foods that I am fine in the health department, not the structure though, haha
    I got the Men’s solution as well, cos the other was not available and I was in a town passing through, so the men’s one was half price, I got lazy in using it, so gave it to my son the other day and I’m hopeful it will help him, but then I might get jealous.

      You may want to try Cal Pharma’s Strong Hair system. It has a number newer clinically backed technologies for strengthening hair, improving the quality of hair growth, stimulating new hair growth and increasing the bonding of the hair to the root follicle.

    Hair breakage is a major issue especially as we age (and our hair ages, gets brittle, loses texture). For this issue, you may want to check out products with Karavis and/or Phytelene Complex. They are shown to improve tensile strength, and coat/repair damaged hair. You can find products on amazon by searching actives “Keravis Phytelene Complex”. Then read the detail to ensure the product has these ingredients.

    Well after those comments I wont be buying Evolis!!!! I have a thyroid problem and do take medication for that, but I do all the right things, eat all the right food take all the right vitamins and also take Silica tablets 2 per day, I have found that it has helped my hair a lot although at 75 I don’t have the bounce and weight that I used to have my hair is a lot better than it was 12 months ago and my hairdresser can see the difference. I have been looking for something to get the bounce and volume back, but a lot of products you have to Keep using them or your hair goes back to how it was……I want something that works and I don’t have to keep buying and using like Regaine products
