People lose hair for several reasons. Illness and medication (like chemotherapy to cure cancer) can cause hair loss. Hair loss can also be hereditary from a parent. Frequently, hair thins out because it is fine-textured or because too many tough chemicals have been used on it, so it breaks easily.
Also, thinning hair can be caused by a range of factors, including stress. If your hair is thinning, do not worry. There are lots of things you can do to treat it, such as changing your hairstyle, using mild hair products, and consuming more protein and omega-3s.
These are hair care tips to help protect hair, prevent additional hair loss, and add volume to your hair.
1. Non-prescription antifungals
If you inherited an inclination for hair loss, you probably have very healthy hair overall. Hence, your hair can benefit from permanent or semi-permanent color to give body and volume to your hair.
Medications can deteriorate hair, causing it to break or fall out. Semi-permanent color is good in this case too, because it does not include ammonia or peroxide. It will not destroy your hair, but will give it body and volume.
If your hair is fine-textured, semi-permanent or permanent color is okay, as long as it is professionally applied. Colored hair can easily get over-processed, which damages it, causing more hair loss.
2. Use Volumizing Products
Many volume-building hair products include paraffin, which is beeswax. That’s not good for your hair, because it builds up and can make hair break.
But, volumizing products sold in salons do help. They won’t weigh hair down, and they won’t destroy it. Mousse, for example, can be applied at the root area for maintenance. Then, begin blow drying the root area, applying mild tension with a brush to create volume. Use a light finishing spray to clutch it.
3. Shampoo and Condition Your Hair When Dirty
To protect hair, the best preparation is to shampoo only when hair is dirty. Since fine hair gets dirty easily, people with fine-textured hair need to shampoo more regularly even though fine hair breaks more easily.
For that reason, fine-textured hair benefits from a good quality shampoo and volume-building conditioner.
4. Find a Style That Suits Fine Hair
Blow dryers should not be a difficulty, even if you have fine hair. However, be very careful about putting high heat directly onto your hair. Flat irons and curling irons can cause harm and breakage.
Because they comprise of very strong chemicals, curl-relaxing products are a no-no for fine hair.
5. Get a Permanent Wave
Permanents can help add volume to your fine-textured hair but hair must be healthy, not dry or fragile. Only a gentle body wave is recommended, because tighter waves can destroy the hair. Because chemicals contained in permanents are tough, a permanent wave should only be a last resort for fine-haired people.
Again, make sure that a professional stylist gives you your permanent wave, so that your hair will not get damaged.
