about my thinning hair

Recommended Posts

My hair is curly, fine but so thin on the top that you can see my scalp. I have been using hair extension to increase the hair volumn and cover my scalp, but sometimes it is itchy and hard to handle by myself.

I was wondering if anyone else has any other ideas on how to handle this problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It’s sort of a myth. You can try it if you have very fine hair. Sometimes with hair loss you have created you recreate it with over-processing of hair. By using shampoo often, by using color that they over-process, or blow drying, flat ironing, curling, using products like gel, mousse. All those things are drying out your hair. Of course, it’s going to fall out. But if someone has a medical problem or their hair is very fine and falling out, there is nothing we can do since the problem is internal. Only doctors can do anything about it. But you can help prevent it. A lot of it is of course environmental, it’s how you treat your hair. If you are not taking care of your hair.

 


thanks, dear. i don't shed hair, but on the top hair is exactly thin, and i can see the scalp.

i 've seen a doctor, but he said it's not hair loss... i'm not clear that

 

it's itchy when i use hair extension, so i don't want to use it.

Then don't. Use soothing products on your scalp, like oil or a hydrating cream, and try to switch your part to a place with less scalp. You can apply a tiny bit of susncreen on the scalp that shows, and you can also wear a hat or a baseball cap, anything you prefer to cover your head.

Jessieecs,

 

Came across your question, my aunt had same issue, she did the following:

 

1. Change her shower filter to non-fluoride" one

2. Took fish oil (omega 3 are amazing! )

3. Washed her hair every 3 days - If gets oily put babypowder on scalp then coldblow dry

4. Drink lots of water ! Ph balanced is best

5. Check your stomach acids - Anti-acids pills are harmful

6. Also lay on your bed with your head hanging out of ledge a bit, massage scalp- Helps with circulation on scalp

 

Try to lower stress if you have any ! Warm bath with magnesium salts helps!

 

My aunt now has a full head of hair :)  Good luck!

I had the same experience! After I had my baby my hair started falling out like crazy. After many doctor visits and tests, he recommended that I use a natural shampoo, because my post-baby body was now not having a good reaction to the chemicals in shampoos. He recommended the Made from Earth Tea & Protein Shampoo, because its all natural, and has proteins in it. 

After about one week, I could see my hair getting stronger and filling out more. It has stopped falling out now. You will need a condtioner after using this shampoo, because it does make your hair like squeaky clean (from the tea tree oil), but its worth it because you get your hair back!

L'Oreal's serioxyl thicker hair serum is best for thin hair. Also oiling the hair with mixture of oils, olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil and castor oil also makes hair thicker.

You HAVE to use Amla Hair Oil for thinning hair !!!! It should strengthen your hair if you use this every night before bed and leave it on all night. Just don't drown your hair in the oil though. Try to use more natural shampoos, with less chemicals. Use yogurt (with no salt or sugar) and also eggs. It should really help bring some life into your hair. Hope it gets healthy soon ❤️

Also, don't straighten your hair or curl it. Do not cause more damage to it! Use natural hair sprays that act as hair food. Don't go swimming either. Also, try not to keep your hair in the same hairstyle every day. The roots need to breathe.

    • I think I came up with this in my sleep last night. I tried to wake up and start on it, but was too tired, could not wake up!  It's called "Weekly Makeup Basket Plus". Goal: To have something to do and enjoy during weekends when I'm bored, and something to look forward to for stressful week days when there is no time to think. It's meant to be therapeutic in nature. I have tons of nice things, but I don't use them and enjoy them for a number of reasons. One reason is, I don't have a really nice storage system. I have everything in boxes, stacked and piled high. It's hard to get to things. And I have so much, I just don't know where to start. It doesn't help that I'm already a lazy "no makeup" kind of person. But that does not stop me from collecting because I love glamour and pretty things.  The goal is just to enjoy things. I don't really care if I use things up or am on a No Buy right now. I don't feel ambitious; I just want to make myself happy.  Step 1: The first step is to start working on my weekly basket as soon as the weekend arrives. I will go through each section of storage one by one, look through all my things, cleaning and organizing as I go, and I will select things to use for the weekly basket. This will include all categories - hair care, skin care, bath and body, nails, perfume and makeup. This will give me something to do on the weekend when I get bored. Step 2: Use the rest of the weekend to have fun with and learn about the weekly basket products before the work week begins again.  Step 3: When the work week begins, I'll have things in place so I can have some pampering for stressed days when there is no time to think. Step 4: At the end of the week, assess how the week went, make note of any items used up and any new items acquired, and start a new basket!  Happy Memorial Day Weekend and Happy Summer to everybody. 
    • The summer season is here, and it's surely a trying time for your skin. The sun, heat and pollution are harming your skin and taking away it's radiance, leaving it dull, oily and blemished. So, here are some skincare tips for summer, to ensure that your skin looks fresh and healthy always. Use the right face wash: In winters, we often use face washes that are nourishing. However, in the warm season, we need to use a face wash that can draw out the excess oil from the skin. Include antioxidants in your routine: It is vital to invest in a good antioxidant serum, especially during the summer. Not only does it hydrate your skin but also protects it from damage. It boosts the production of collagen and works for all skin types, making it one of the best skincare tips for summer. You ca also add them to your diet by stocking up on green-leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, nuts, green tea and whole grains. Make sunscreen your BFF: Nothing works as well as a good sunscreen during the summer season. Whether you're on a holiday or travelling in the city, invest in a good sunscreen (between SPF 30-50) and ensure you wear it daily. Re-apply every three to four hours for healthy looking skin.
    • The summer season can make our face look oily, itchy and dull. And not to forget the tans and humid air that makes it even worse. Considering we sweat a lot, it's important for us to stay hydrated always to keep our skin from looking drained. But just drinking water may not be enough. Some extra care is needed. So, if you're wondering how to get glowing skin in the summer, here are some homemade packs that will nourish your skin. Mint & Turmeric: Grind some mint leaves, adding a pinch of turmeric powder. Mix a little water and make a paste of it. Apply on your face and neck and leave it for about 15 mintes. Rinse with cold water. Cucumber & Sugar: Wondering how to get glowing skin? This pack's surely going to help. Cut a few slices of cucumber and mash it. Add a dash of sugar to it and refrigerate for some time. Once cooled, apply the mixture on your face and neck. It will not only soothe your face but will hydrate it well, making it glow. Lemon & Honey: If you have greasy skin, then this one's for you. For this, mix equal parts of lemon juice and honey. Add an egg white to the concoction and mix thoroughly. Apply to your face and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
