How to Keep Hair Lush and Thick
Did you know that hair thinning is not uncommon? I know that after I had each of my three children and when I had surgery, my hair thinned a lot and even fell out places. I was desperate to figure out a solution.
For women, Hereditary Hair Loss is the most common cause of hair loss, accounting for 90% of cases.
It is a genetic condition stemming from either the mother or father’s side of the family and is commonly recognized by women in their 30s as a “diffuse” thinning over the top of the head and along the part.
Both my grandmother and my mother suffer from hereditary hair loss. I figure that might be coming down the line for me in a few years so I check frequently. I want my hair to stay lush and thick. Women's Rogaine can help you out, too!
Styling Tips and Tricks for Thinning Hair from Celebrity Stylist Jill Crosby
I am super excited to share some of these fun tips from Celebrity Stylist Jill Crosby.
A clean scalp is a happy scalp
Jill Crosby: “Keeping the scalp clear of waxy buildup creates a better environment for hair regrowth. I recommend shampooing every other day, for every type of hair.”
This is exactly what I do. I wash my hair every other day and as a result, my hair is soft and shiny.
Embrace styling tools!
Jill Crosby: “You can use all of the same tools and techniques, just with less heat and less tension. The key here is gentle. Ask your salon stylist to ease up on the heat and tension, and use a light touch with towels and hairbrushes at home.”
I have been working on this at home. I have recently changed out my styling tools for those that have less tension and varying heat settings. I have a lot less split ends.
Switch up your part
Jill Crosby: “Experiment with flipping your part to the opposite side. By adding a little texture spray to the roots you can get a new voluminous flip started. Or try a look without a defined part – sometimes with fine hair parts can expose too much scalp.”
I am constantly changing up my part to hide spots of hair that just aren't looking great that day. I also change the side that I part my hair on every six months or so.
LOB it off
Jill Crosby: “For most people shorter haircuts will create the illusion of volume, whereas the longer hair gets the more it weighs itself down and looks even thinner.” An example of this would be the super on-trend “Lob” which is a longer version of the bob cut.
While I can't exactly do this yet (I love my longer hair too much), I do love a nicely done lob. I think that they look great on the majority of women.
