Do you have naturally thin hair? You’re probably wishing that it has more volume and texture. Thin hair has the tendency to go flat and limp, that’s why styling it can be a bit challenging. There are hairstyles, though, that can give you the illusion of thicker locks. You can also use mousse and texturizing sprays to give your hair more bounce.
Even if you have thin hair, you must keep it well-nourished and healthy. Just follow these easy tips, and your tresses will thank you.
Tips in Taking Care of Thin Hair
1. Keep it strong
The last thing you want is for your thin hair to get thinner due to hair fall. Use a shampoo that will help reduce hair breakage. Avoid shampooing your hair daily—doing so can dry out your scalp and hair strands, resulting in dry hair. Twice a week or every other day is enough.
Editor’s tip: Wash hair with Dove Hairfall Rescue Shampoo to strengthen hair strands and reduce hair fall. It has Dynazinc and grapeseed extract that nourish your from roots to tips and fortify your hair fiber.
2. Use a conditioner designed to address hair fall
A conditioner is your best friend, no matter your hair type. Invest in one that will not only nourish and moisturize your hair but also improve its strength.
Editor’s tip: Use Cream Silk Hairfall Defense Conditioner to make weak and brittle hair strands stronger. Its Break-Shield Complex will minimize hair fall and breakage.
3. Minimize styling with heat and various products
Regular blow drying, ironing, and applying mousse, serums, hairsprays, and gels can be too much for thin hair to take. Give your hair time to “breathe” by going for minimal styling on some days to avoid damage.
Editor’s tip: If your hair takes a pounding from lots of styling, use TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Shampoo to help restore the strength of your hair strands and protect your hair from further damage.
4. Treat your hair with a mask
It’s like giving your tresses a spa day. A hair mask can help rejuvenate damaged hair, and if you have thin hair, this can go a long way in keeping your locks strong, smooth, and healthy. Use once a week after shampooing and apply from mid-length down to your tips.
Editor’s tip: Apply Cream Silk Triple Keratin Ultimate Repair & ShineTreatment Crème on your hair once a week to help repair damaged strands, restore shine, and calm frizz and flyaways.
5. Always protect your hair from heat
This is one hair commandment you shouldn’t forget. Apply heat protectant on your hair before blow-drying or ironing. It is better to prevent hair damage rather than repair it. Your locks will thank you for this extra step.
Editor’s tip: If you often blow dry or iron your hair, spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair before heat-styling. The spray will protect your thin hair from heat damage while taming frizz and flyaways.
