Mistakes To Avoid If You Have Thinning Hair

Mistakes To Avoid If You Have Thinning Hair

If you are experiencing hair thinning, you can do something about it.

Thinning hair can be a pesky and challenging situation to deal with. While we know that diseases, like alopecia and cancer, as well as age, medications, and genetics – factors we don’t have much control over – are the top culprits behind hair loss and hair thinning. Experts agree that there’s a few things we can do daily that are making our hair more prone to breakage, damage, and fallout. If you are experiencing hair thinning, you can do something about it. All it takes is a few small adjustments to your everyday habits. Read on to learn about some mistakes made by those with thinning hair.

Washing Your Hair Too Frequently  

If your hair is fragile and thing, it’s a good idea to avoid washing it every day. The consistency of washing your hair every day can thin and dry it, making it quite brittle. Dry shampoo is an excellent supplement in between washes to avoid hair thinning.

Using Excess Hair Oil

Some hair oil might make your hair feel nice, but it is not recommended for those with thin hair since it is usually too heavy and leads to the strands becoming flat and stuck to your scalp. Instead, consider using a deep conditioning treatment to avoid hair thinning.

Not Using Any Styling Products

Finding the proper styling product that can create volume and thickness is monumental for those experiencing thinning hair. If you wish to make your hair look a bit better and feel thicker, consider using a thickening spray to add volume before blow-drying. If you wash your hair and go, your hair could feel a bit lifeless.

Pulling Your Hair Back Too Tightly When Wet

It can be a bit tempting, especially when you are in a rush, to throw your hair back in a ponytail once you hop out of the shower. But doing so can cause some severe damage, especially to the thin strands. Hair can overstretch when it’s wet, so pulling it up into a hair tie in this state can add stress on the hair, leading to potential hair thinning. Use a gentle scrunchie with a wider elastic band instead.
