There are many reasons behind thinning hair such as hereditary conditions, stress, medical conditions (Alopecia Areatea) and various medications. Here, the team have compiled a list of things you can do to either avoid hair thinning, masking it or keeping it at bay for as long as possible.
One of the biggest causes is usually from the overlooked side effects of certain medications which can lead to hair loss, so it’s always worth checking the leaflet when you start taking new medication. It may not always be possible to switch products but it’s worth finding out from your doctor. Drugs used to treat the following conditions commonly lead to hair loss: cancer, depression, heart problems, arthritis and high blood pressure.

Men and women can also have a hereditary condition in which sex hormones cause hair to fall out in a particular pattern. The best way to manage this is to handle your hair gently, using all-natural hair products. Even changing your hairstyle can help slow the progression of hormone-related thinning. Other medical conditions that can cause hair loss are Thyroid issues, scalp infections and skin disorders like Alopecia Areathea. If you find yourself suffering from these it’s worth treating these conditions in order to help slow or halt hair loss.

Stress is another cause for hair thinning and hair loss. The best way to relieve yourself from stress is to get your much needed 7-8 hours’ sleep, meditate, do yoga to relax your mind and exercise for overall body health. This will also keep you feeling fit, healthy and active. Combining your health patterns with a great diet can also be beneficial. Sometimes a lack of protein can be the cause of hair loss so eating foods high in protein can help maintain your hair growth. The following foods are high in protein: fish, chicken, pork, black beans, chick peas, tofu and dairy products. There’s plenty for everyone, whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian or non-veg.

Another reason for hair loss is the harsh chemicals in hair products. These chemicals can be detrimental to your hair growth. Try using gentle hair products such as shampoos without sulphates, conditioners without silicones and other hair styling products, which you can find at health food stores. If you want to hide your thinning hair then the following styling tips are great for an everyday look. The best way to hide your thinning hair is by making hair look thicker on top than it actually is:

  • Blunt cutting over texturing will maintain the hair’s thickness. Always great to go around with a 3 then blend around it with scissors.
  • You should blunt cut hair from the top as going too short on top can reveal the thinness of the hair.
  • Anti-frizz cream will both tame the hair and keep it in place. This is great when you’re moving about throughout the day.
  • A matte product is key to not weighing down thin hair and topping it off with hairspray will give your matte look the hold it needs.
