60% of women experience thinning hair by age 70.
And for men, those numbers are even higher – 85% of men are thinking about how to stop thinning hair by age 50!
Don’t wait until thinning hair becomes a bald spot – or wide part – or an island.
Listen to the experts, salon stylists, and stop thinning hair starting today.
1. Ease the tension. Too tight of hairstyles like ponytails, braids, and buns, can damage follicles, leading to thinning hair. Even wrapping hair too tightly around hot curlers can cause problems. You can still enjoy those styles, just don’t pull them tight enough that you can feel them in your scalp.
2. But don’t relax. Chemical relaxers, perms, hair colors – they all damage your hair to the follicles and even below. Some of them actually break down the structure of the hair strands, so they break easily. Stop thinning hair once and for all by letting your hair be natural.
3. Stop with the heat. Stop thinning hair by turning off the heat. From hair dryers to curling irons to hot curlers, heat does its job and dries hair strands. But that makes hair dry, brittle, and dehydrated, so it’s more likely to break. Put down the hot styling tools and let hair dry naturally.
4. Change the way you think about shampoo. Which shampoo you’re using matters. A lot. Shampoos strip the oils away from you hair. While that may make your hair clean, it also makes your hair fragile. Look for mild shampoos that have Isethionate or Glucoside high in their ingredients list. And avoid shampoos that include sulfate, parabens, and/or sulfonate if you want to stop thinning hair.
5. Change the way you think about clean. As we’ve established, shampoos strip the oils from your hair. Even mild ones. So to stop thinning hair, stop shampooing as often. You really can cut back to shampooing every other day – at most – and still have full, shiny hair. In fact, unless you’re actively getting your hair dirty or sweaty, you may even be able to cut back to once a week. Play around with the timing and what works best for your hair. However…
6. Don’t skimp on conditioner. Not only should you condition every time you shampoo, you might find it helpful to condition more often than you shampoo. For some reason, people tend to skip this step even though conditioner is vital to stopping hair from getting thin. Hydrated hair is healthy hair. Dehydrated hair is brittle, unhealthy hair. Use a lightweight formula so that it doesn’t build up and weigh you down. But keep hair well-hydrated.
7. Pick the right brush. Decades ago, people thought brushing hair 100 strokes before bed helped it grow. These days, most people realize that’s an old wives tale that doesn’t stand up to reality. However, many people still don’t realize how important choosing the right brush is to hair health. To stop thinning hair, choose a brush with natural fibers. If you’ve got natural curls, choose a paddle brush, as well. And don’t pull with the brush, but be gentle, working from the underside out. Finally, don’t use a brush on wet hair. Stick with a comb until it’s dried.
8. Eat for healthy hair. As any good stylist will tell you, what you eat has an undeniable effect on the health of your hair. Make sure you’re getting plenty of protein, biotin, and omega-3 fatty acids. Protein is a building block of healthy hair. Biotin deficiency can actually speed up hair loss. And omega-3s help not only your heart, but your head, too!
9. Don’t be afraid to supplement. This doesn’t mean you have to resort to sticky sprays or prescriptions with questionable side effects. You can find the nutrients, minerals, and herbal benefits your hair needs to stay healthy and strong from all-natural formulas, like Restore FX.
