There are many solutions for thinning hair and they all depend on the source of the condition. A switch to all natural hair products is a good place to start. Many shampoos, conditioners and hair sprays contain chemicals that negatively affect the scalp and hair. Make sure that your shampoo doesn’t contain sulfates or alcohol.
Combing with a wide-tooth comb instead of brushing, especially when wet, is the gentlest way to get the tangles out. Start from the bottom and work your way to the roots.
Other solutions for thinning hair are letting your hair dry naturally and using heat-free styling techniques. Towel-dry your hair without wringing it. Let it air dry instead of using a hair dryer. Hair dryers cause the hair to dry and break. Air- drying promotes new hair growth. Avoid curling irons, straightening irons and other hot styling tools. Embrace your natural hair texture and find ways to style your hair without heat. Avoid hairstyles that pull your hair like styles using tight braids and weaves and especially avoid using elastics.
Amongst the medical solutions for thinning hair is minoxidil, a cream or foam that is applied to the scalp twice a day. It normally takes up to 12 weeks to start working and will provide some regrowth. There are some health risks in using this product. For more severe cases, FUE hair transplants can provide a permanent and optimum solution.
