The skinny on thinning hair: How to deal

The skinny on thinning hair: How to deal

There's hardly a bigger blow to your ego than the moment you realize your tresses are thinning. Maybe you notice a little more hair than usual in your brush, or your ponytail is on the wimpier side. Thick strands have long been associated not only with beauty, but also with health. Fortunately, with a little patience and the right products, you can have a fuller mane.  

Eat right
You are what you eat - and that also applies to your hair. According to Refinery 29, Elizabeth Cunnane Phillips at the Philip Kingsley clinic recommends including protein in all of your meals throughout the day. She explained that when you take in most of your protein at one time, such as dinner, vital nutrients end up going to other essential parts of your body before your hair. Try eating eggs or protein-rich Greek yogurt at breakfast and fish or lean meat at lunch to make sure that your hair isn't deprived of what it needs to grow. Phillips also advises against going more than four hours without eating.

Scalp solutions
While it might be tempting to cut down on the shampooing to preserve your strands, doing so can actually have the opposite effect. Phillips explained that oil and grime can build up on the scalp, clogging the follicles. Instead of foregoing washes altogether, opt for the Phytolium Energizing Shampoo for Chronic and Hereditary Conditions, which has a high concentration of rooibos and cinchona bark extracts to revitalize the scalp. Next, follow with the Phytolium 4 Thinning Hair Treatment, which has a powerful botanical complex that can actually preserve follicle cells, expand each strand's diameter and prolong the hair's regeneration.

Protect and preserve
We expose our tresses to a variety of stressors every day, which can only accelerate the thinning process. Trichologist Iain Sallis told Marie Claire that UV rays from the sun can lead the chemicals in our hair to oxidize and essentially self-bleach, thus dehydrating it. Not only that, but salt water and chlorine can further strip moisture from your mane, breaking it down and making it more prone to breakage. Shield your strands from all of these factors with Phyto Plage l'originale Protective Beach Spray, which can also help to preserve color and moisture.

Feign fullness
There are also tricks that can give the illusion of hair being fuller than it actually is. Super-stylist Luke Hersheson recommended in Marie Claire implementing subtle layers to pump up the volume. He also warned against getting bangs, which he explained can actually draw attention to thinning tresses. Teasing is a commonly known method for a boost at the crown, but you might not have known that highlights can also give the appearance of ample hair.
