What to do if you have thinning hair

By Toia Barry

As we’ve discussed in this post, shedding is a natural part of our hair’s growth process. But when hair loss becomes excessive, leading to thinning and bald spots, we need to take a step back and figure out what’s happening. Different factors can cause thinning hair so understanding what that may be will help you on the road to recovery.


Consider Your Style Options


The first and easiest thing you can do right away changes the way you style your hair. Your thinning hair could very well be caused by manipulating your strands the same way or in the same direction on a constant basis. Something as simple as placing a part in the same spot every day could cause hair to thin in that area. To fix that, simply switch it up as much as possible. Traction alopecia - a type of hair loss that is caused by the constant pulling of the hair - is most common along the hairline/edges but can happen anywhere on your head. So ease up on the tension no matter how you style your hair and give your hair a break every few days.


Think About Your Diet


A diet that’s lacking fruits, vegetables and plenty of water can result in excessive shedding or hair thinning. Keep your diet balanced to ensure that the proper nutrients reach the hair and nourish from the inside out. Exercise also helps get the blood flowing to feed your follicles for hair that thrives!


Take Your Vitamins


A daily vitamin is also key to keeping things balanced. Sometimes, regardless of our best efforts to eat right, there may be “holes' in our vitamin and mineral intake that need to be filled. That where our Advanced Healthy Hair Vitamins come in. This supplement supports healthy hair growth without the risk of breakouts. Remember, this is a supplement. You still need to be taking
other steps to promote healthy hair growth.


Stimulate the Growth


While you can't exactly speed up your rate of hair growth, you can stimulate and encourage growth in areas that may have thinned out. There are two ways you can do this:


Scalp Massage


Massaging the scalp encourages blood flow to those affected areas. The nutrients in the bloodstream are what feed the hair follicles and allow hair to grow. The more you able to get blood to the area, the better chances of hair regrowth.

Use Stimulating Oils


This kinda goes hand-in- hand with scalp massages. Adding an oil to your fingertips will make the massage smoother but using the right ones can also make it even more effective. Our Mint Almond Oil gives all the benefits of almond oil with the stimulating effect of peppermint. Use a bit a few times a week for a relaxing and refreshing massage. Consistently put these tips to use for a few months and take note of any changes in those problem areas. In addition to these steps, it wouldn’t hurt to consult a specialist to assess the
problem.

In the natural hair world, we talk so much about moisture, moisture, and more MOISTURE! Why? Because highly textured hair, in general, struggles with keeping moisture locked in. Due to its shape, the natural sebum (oil) from the scalp has a tough time traveling the whole length of our strands.

Access your hair’s needs. Our hair needs both moisture and protein to thrive. While adding moisture is always key, adding protein when your hair is healthy, low porosity, and free of chemical processing can do more harm than good.  When excess protein coats the hair strand and hardens, it can cause the hair to break. It can also block moisture from penetrating the hair follicle as well.
