If you have noticed more hair in your brush or comb lately or you see numerous hairs on the bathroom vanity, your hair might be getting thinner. This could mean you have less hair than you used to or that the hair you have is not quite as strong or resilient as before. Fortunately, you can do several things to make your hair naturally appear fuller.
Don’t brush your hair too roughly or pull on those tangles that develop. Brush or comb gently to avoid damaging your hair. Instead of wearing tight hair ties, choose the looser, fabric ties that won’t cause breakage in your hair. Try not to arrange your hairstyle in tight configurations that stress the hair and cause it to fall out.
Chemicals like dyes, perms, and straighteners can damage your hair, especially the more you use them. Learn new ways of styling your hair naturally instead of having chemical procedures done at the salon or at doing them at home.
Hair products like spray, foam, or shiner may not be quite as harmful, but any product you put on your hair stifles access to air circulation and restricts movement, which may also cause your hair to weaken over time.
Uplift Your Hairdo
Give your hairstyle a lift by inserting clips and rolls to make areas of your hair look fuller. There are many attractive styles that can help to enhance your hair by lifting, separating, and blending sections that need a little help. Don’t tease or “rat” your hair for volume. Instead, look for shampoos and styling products known to increase hair volume that are either natural or, if synthetic, are not harmful to your hair and scalp. Bands, rings, and other structural and decorative elements can add the appearance of fullness.
Supplement Your Locks
Many styles of hairpieces can add length, fullness, or layers to your hair to make it appear fuller. You might want to buy a length of hair, called a fall, that blends with your natural color. A wiglet is a cap-like synthetic hair arrangement that adds height to the crown or extra fullness where needed. Of course, there are whole-head wigs in a variety of styles and shades. Contact a custom wigs maker to discuss the type of wigs you might be interested in, whether for daily use or special events only.
Don’t worry if your hair seems to be thinning. Many people have this issue, and there are several ways to address it. Take good care of your hair using tips like these.
