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.
