Has thinning hair become a big problem for you lately? Studies say that more than half of women will deal with hair thinning at one point in their lives, so in case you’re already noticing some changes in your hair, you should consider taking some measures against it. This is why, I want to show you how to stop thinning hair in women following just 8 steps and how to get your hair back as it used to be.
1. Determine the cause
Although for us it’s only an esthetic problem, hair thinning could actually be a symptom of a health problem, such as hormonal derangements or anemia. The most common medical issues that can make your hair thinner are thyroid problems or male hormones excess, so seeing a doctor might be very useful in case the cause is a health issue.
The genetic factor could also be a cause, so you should find out if anyone from your family has dealt with hair thinning at one point. If this question has a positive answer, there are several ways in which you can try to stop the thinning.
However, if you’re not able to find the cause of your problem, consider that stress, dandruff or even a busy lifestyle could be a cause. The good news is that you can treat it.
2. Start a special treatment for thinning hair
There are many products on the market that can improve hair thinning. However, most of them are designed to combat hair loss, simply because this is the factor that leads to thinning hair.
In other words, if you notice your hair is falling out massively, you will probably also notice that it is much thinner at the ends and much weaker. This is why, most products focus on reducing the hair loss first and in this way stopping the hair thinning.
Such a treatment would be ideal for someone who has thinning hair, so after determining the cause this should be the next step you follow. If you’re lucky, it may even resolve you problem completely so you won’t have to do anything else.
3. Consider taking some supplements
The best supplements in this case would include Biotin or Vitamin B7, Vitamin C or Iron. I won’t insist more on this topic, you can find out more reading my post Supplements for hair and health.
4. Improve your eating habits
It’s not about what you eat, it’s actually about what you don’t eat.
This is why you should pay more attention to what you eat and make sure that you consume daily fruits and vegetables. If you want to find out more about this subject, you can check my post Best vitamins for hair growth.
5. Try a thickening/volumizing shampoo
Although these shampoos can’t do anything in order to treat thinning hair, they manage to give your hair a thicker look. This is why, a thickening shampoo shouldn’t be absent from your bathroom.
6. Use styling tools as rarely as possible
If your hair is already extremely thin thanks to other factors, also damaging it yourself is probably the worst thing you can do. In this way, there are very high chances that every treatment you do would be in vain.
This is why, you should try to style your hair as little as possible. As an alternative, there are many ways in which you can curl or straighten your hair without heat, so these could be a great solution for you.
7. Try to reduce stress
I know this is pretty hard to manage, but you should do your best in order to reduce stress, because it is one of the first causes not only for thinning hair, but also for many diseases, much more serious than this esthetic problem.
In order to do this, you should make sure you relax everyday by going out, walking, watching TV, reading a book or any other thing you like. By doing this, your body will eliminate the stress and you will start noticing only improvements when it comes to your health and hair.
8. Consider getting a darker hair color
As far as I’ve noticed, dark hair tends to seem thicker than light hair. I’m still not sure if this is available for everyone, but I’ve seen that many people’s hair seems thicker when it is darker.
So, in case you have blonde hair and you want a change of look, go for a darker color. It will make your hair seem like it has more volume and it is thicker, so it might be a temporary solution.
These are the things I do when I notice that my hair is getting thinner, and until now they have proved to work very well. I challenge you to try them if you have this problem, after all you don’t have anything to lose.
If you have any questions, please let me know and I will be very happy to help you. 😀
