Dos - For Thinning Hair


It has been four weeks since I have been using Rogaine to prevent HHL. The instructions mention that it will take about 12 weeks minimum to start seeing results and I am committed. To assist the process I am also making necessary changing to my hair care routine. Here are some of the tips I have incorporated:

- gently pat freshly washed hair with a microfiber towel to absorb moisture. It minimizes breakage, this is the best method for drying thinning hair before styling it.

- snag yourself a quality wide-tooth comb if you have curly or wavy hair, or a brush with soft, rounded bristle tips for straight hair to prevent further disruption of thinning hair.

- turn your head upside down to blow-dry when you don't have time to air- or pat-dry it. This is an easy way to give your thin hair a powerful boost, making it appear more voluminous.

- for your bedtime hair-care routine, gently gather your mane into a low, loose bun, braid, or ponytail before nodding off to sleep.

- massage your scalp using the pads of your fingers before hopping in the shower. Beyond just feeling amazing, this increases blood flow and helps exfoliate pores for a healthier scalp.

- use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner duo. Look for a gentler shampoo that is residue-free, weightless, and sulfate free. Lately, I have been skipping the conditioner all together since my hair is short now. 

- to add volume to your tresses, when you can't squeeze in a shower, use a dry shampoo with cornstarch or rice starch and a clear formulation.

- detangle your locks before you shower, as dry hair is more durable and less apt to break than wet. Just remember to use a wide-tooth comb for curly or wavy hair, or a brush with soft, rounded bristle tips for straight hair.

- try and adopt a more tousled, casual, wash-and-go style as your new signature look. This will be easier to pull off and maintain with thinner hair.

- only wash your hair when it is dirty, but know that thinner hair generally gets grimier faster than thicker hair. If you can, shampoo every other day to diminish damage from over-washing. To stretch the time between washes, try a dry shampoo with cornstarch or rice starch and a clear formulation.

- lastly protect your hair from damage by limiting direct sun exposure. Natural sunlight, and even artificial ultraviolet light, can break down keratin protein in your hair and hamper its elasticity.

  1. Some of those tips I knew, but some I didn't so thanks for sharing. I'd also recommend sleeping on a satin or silk pillowcase so it doesn't pull on your hair while sleeping.

  2. This is a great list for anyone trying to up their hair game. Jeez - I wouldn't have known that you suffer from thinning hair! It looks so full and thick!

    I'm with Cheryl. A satin pillowcase or bonnet really does wonders for your hair. Cotton pillowcases cause too much friction and suck all of the moisture out of your hair!
