Regardless of the cause(s) of your thinning hair, there are a few things that you can try in an attempt to reduce or stop your hair from thinning out:
Thinning hair is no longer something that you have no control over. The simple recommendations and medical breakthroughs described above can help you deal effectively with hair loss!
- Don't comb or brush your hair more often than absolutely necessary. Excessive grooming can cause the individual hairs to come out very easily.
- Don't use a blow dryer on thinning hair. Heat affects the chemical makeup of our hairs causing them to be less able to resist the tendency to come out. Dry your hair by gently patting it with a soft towel and allow the air to finish the drying process.
- Don't braid your hair, or use ponytails or cornrows. The tension applied to the hair follicles can cause the hairs to fall out faster than normal which speeds up the thinning hair process.
- Use one of the many hair restorative shampoos and conditioners that are on the market today. These items are specially formulated with vitamins and nutrients that are proven to reduce the occurrence of thinning hair.
- If your hair loss is extreme, you can ask your physician about the many pharmaceutical and surgical options that are available today to stop or at least reduce the rate of your thinning hair.
