So your hair is thiner than usual or is it falling out..do you notice balding in your scalp? Lately I have been getting asked what to do in these scenarios. I am not a doctor nor do I think these are end all be all to your thin hair problems. What I am going to discuss below is simply some regimes I personally know of along with colleagues in the industry and have recommended and seen effective. The best place to go for severe thinning is to a nutritionist or a Dermatologist. That said here are some products and regime and what they can do for you.
Nioxin Three Set System
This Product line is older than me. Im not that old but it has been around for a while. I love it because it has a effective three step system that I know works due to my clients telling me they used it and loved it . Keep in mind thinning hair has everything to do with your scalp not your hair and is not to be mistaken with overly processed hair due to Color and Hot tools. They have diffrent numbers that indicate stages of thinning and if you color or don't color.
http://www.nioxin.com/en-EN/proven-solutions/products is a great resource to read more about it and see what is right for you.
Another tip is dry hair on Cold or Medium heat and minimize heat by utilizing Hot rollers or air drying when ever possible. Also if you must use hot tolls use the lower heat settings. Yes this take way longer but it will minimize heat exposure and help in the hair you do have being really healthy.
Green tea Shampoo
Green tea shampoo stimulates the scalp and clears it of sebum or any product residue left behind. I have seen this be effective in hair growth. Many times we think we washed our hair because it smells good but we neglect the scalp. Products often times create a barrier and clog the hair follicle. Think of it like a scalp facial. I find tea tree in any form rather it be organic in oil form or inside a shampoo to stimulate the scalp and induce hair growth
Please refer to my Vitamin Post Below
This if done regularly not only feels great but can also helps. Basically your scalp likes to be stimulated therefore if you do a scalp massage regularly you see results. I advise to use some type of product in correlation with this. Aloe vera, coconut oil, lemon Juice and Aloe Vera gel...ext. They have all kinds of oils that stimulate the scalp along with a scalp massage when done regularly will help you.
This seems to be a trend and apparently it works. I would read the article below for full disclosure but in the event it works please let me know thanks.
An active ingredient fund in most hair loss products that helps with hair loss. http://www.rogaine.com for women has actually made a product with is as its active ingredient along with rhttp://www.redken.com. so what it does is force the hair to go into anagen phase which is the growth phase and therefore it grows. Although it sounds promising I do recommend to use a shampoo to go along with it. Product will be more effective on a clean scalp.
Less Stress and a Healthy Diet
This by far is the most important component. In all the articles and research I read they stressed this the most. A proper diet and exercise can really make a difference in over all health so make sure this is up to par before you start trying out alternatives.
As mentioned before hair loss can stem from many things the most common being hormones I suggest if you have tried everything under the sun you go see a doctor and get to the route of the problem otherwise Let me know which of these was most effective and ill pass on the word to my divas.
As usual thank you for reading and please comment and share
