Simple Tips On How To Hide Thinning Hair
Well! There are many reasons why your hair may be thinning, including age, over-processing your hair, stress, using the incorrect products, conditions like Alopecia, and more. And of course we all wish we could have naturally thick and luscious hair forever, however, thinning hair is a problem many women (and men) face on the regular. So how to hide thinning hair? Today I will show you some simple tips to hide thinning hair. Check it out, below.
1. Chop it off
An easy way to quickly create the illusion of thick, full hair is to snip a few inches off and add some layers. Shorter hair tends to naturally create more volume as it is not weighed down. Strategic layers can also add volume to thinning hair – request your hair stylist to add layers around your face and to leave the back fuller, to create body and volume.
2. Embrace the greys
As hair ages, it also greys, and guess what? Grey hair actually expands the hair’s cuticle, adding additional volume! If you really can’t stand those greys, however, plan to touch up your roots only once a month and add highlights every two to three weeks to keep your hair as healthy, full, and thick and possible.
3. Blow it out
Adding big volume can be achieved with a good blowout after washing your hair. The best part is, this can be done at home with one simple tool: the round brush. Using a boar bristle brush, start blow-drying damp hair by pulling section up and blow-drying in the opposite direction that the hair naturally falls. Be sure to add an additional blast of cool air for a few seconds before letting go, to set the style. You may want to warm up those arms, as this does require some extra effort and time, but trust me, it’s totally worth it!
4. Get some help
Hair extensions, hair toppers, and wiglets are all amazing resources to disguise thin hair and instantly add amazing length and volume. For hair that is thinning at the top of the scalp, a hair topper can be a lifesaver as they are designed to target as conceal partial hair loss. These are especially helpful for those experiencing bald spots due to alopecia.
5. Products to hide thinning hair
A volumizing shampoo combats limpness and puffs up the hair to hide thinning and is a great prerequisite to that blow-out we mentioned earlier. Choose a shampoo that is alcohol and sulfate-free is as these ingredients can be very harsh on the hair and further lead to hall fallout and thinning. You can also add additional volume by working a volumizing mouse through the hair before blow drying. Again, try and stay away from ingredients you can’t pronounce, as these can weigh the hair down.
