Losing hair? Tips to help you combat thinning tresses

Eating a balanced diet is important for healthy hair growth

1. Evaluate your diet

Eating a balanced diet is so important for healthy hair growth. So, if you are losing hair, make sure this isn’t due to any deficiencies. This means aiming to eat your five-a-day, filling your diet with hair-friendly vitamins (like iron, zinc, omega-3 and vitamin C, E, and B) and, of course, checking your protein intake. So you can ditch any ideas of doing that latest fad diet right now.

2. Ask for hair help

Remember: it’s completely normal to lose anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs a day. But if you are seriously concerned about the amount of hair you are losing, then seek the help of a trained health professional. Your local GP will be able to quickly and easily answer any questions and give you expert advice to help you deal with losing hair.

3. Be clever when you pick products

If you are recovering from hair loss, or just have thin hair, be smart with the hair products you pick by trying to select those that will make your locks look fuller. The TIGI Bed Head Fully Loaded Massive Volume Shampoo (250ml, £12.95*) and TIGI Bed Head Fully Loaded Volumising Conditioning Jelly (200ml, £14.95*) are great to use, as they use innovative technologies to help super fine tresses feel thicker and look more voluminous.

4. Don’t overload your hair

It’s tempting to apply lots of volumising and thickening styling products to your thinning tresses in efforts to make it look fuller. But try not to overload your hair with too much of the stuff, as this can easily cause unnecessary build-up on your hair, making it look heavy, limp and flat, which is probably the last thing you want.

But don’t worry if you do get a little heavy-handed with the hairspray, just use a clarifying shampoo, like the TRESemmé Cleanse & Replenish Deep Conditioning Shampoo (500ml, £3.69*) and Remoisturise Conditioner (500ml, £3.69*). The shampoo will gently cleanse your hair, while the conditioner will help hydrate your tresses!

5. Remember: patience is a virtue

We know it’s an understatement that losing hair can be distressing, but more than likely, given time and some TLC, your body and hair will recover from this. So, in the meantime, be patient and kind to yourself. Trust us, your hair will thank you for it later!
