- Using the wrong brushes.
Having great hair has a lot to do with the tools you use on your hair especially the brushes. “Flat brushes and metal brushes won’t give you as much tension when working with the hair as a boar bristle or mixed bristle round brush. Celebrity stylist and founder of Eva Scrivo Salon. ” Tension allows you to get a better grip to get lift and volume in the right places.”
There is a brush called Kent CSGL Ladies’ Thinning Hairbrush that has been designed to use on hair for those with a thinning problem.
2. Your hair is just one all-over color.
Hair that is all the one color tends to make your hair look thinner
Add varied tones. Highlighting definitely adds depth to your strands.
3. The length locks could be weighing you down and make your hair look thinner.
Cut your hair short or mid length. If your hair is thinning, long hair will look a little stringy and wispy. Keeping it shorter is easier to keep it healthy.
4. Hair color too close to your skin color.
When you have a pale complexion and your hair is platinum it is inclined to make your hair look thinner. Add some varied colors to your hair to take that bland look away.
5. Dying your hair too dark.
If your hair is thinning and your hair is too dark it seem to make your part a little wider which gives the appearance of thinning hair. Put some varied shades to help give the appearance of thicker hair.
6. Be careful of the products you use on your hair
Oil- and silicone-based products lay heavy in the hair and tend to make it look thinner.
7. Hot Tools
Be so careful how often you use hot. Hot tools can damage the cuticle, promoting hair breakage.
Use a heat protectant before styling with hot tools to avoid scorching your hair.
8. Your cut is too blunt.
Have your hair layered as it gives your hair that thicker look.
9. Don’t over shampoo
Do not use shampoo every day. When you shower use just conditioner and say shampoo only once or twice a week. Avoid products with harsh detergents, like sodium lauryl sulfate,which can cause breakage.
When you suds up, don’t rub shampoo into the hair itself. Instead, gently massage it into your scalp and let it slide down through your locks.
10 Try a tinted hair spray.
Use a colored powder made specifically to disguise hair loss. These come with an applicator like the kind you use to apply eye shadow. Choose a shade that matches your roots. Apply the product lightly — tap the excess off the brush and dab it gently onto your scalp.
11. Don’t Tease.
Teasing seems like an easy way to give your locks a boost, but it can damage your hair and cause split ends and fly-aways.
