Thinning Hair Remedies For Thick Hair

thinning hair remedies when you have thick hair

1. Try a straightening treatment.

A professional straightening treatment can get rid of any frizz causing poof. Not every straightening treatment will give you pin straight hair. If you have a wavy texture that you want to keep, talk to a salon professional about which kind of Brazilian straightening treatment is right for you. If you are in the market for long lasting stick straight hair, take a look into Japanese hair straightening. Both of these options will make your hair smoother, sleeker, and frizz free.

2. Thin with thinning shears.

You don’t have to cut off all your hair to deal with how thick it is. You totally can, if you want to, we do love a good pixie cut here at All Things Hair, but you can keep your length too. Schedule a haircut and let your stylist know you would like your hair thinned. Thinning shears can cut hair in a way that leaves part of the hair cut and part uncut. This allows your stylist to remove bulk from your hair but leave it nice and long.

3. Get an undercut.

If you are ready to make a big change in the heaviness of your hair try getting an undercut. They aren’t just for short hair! Getting an undercut will dramatically reduce the thickness of your hair while letting you keep your length. When your hair is styled down, you’ll never notice a couple of buzzed inches, and when you style your hair up you add an instant edginess to your style.

4. Use smoothing products

Opt for hair products that can smooth your hair, which, in turn, will make it feel thinner. Try swapping out your shampoo and conditioner for smoothing system, like the Suave Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo and Suave Keratin Infusion Smoothing Conditioner. This duo works to leave your hair frizz-free, softer, stronger, and most importantly smoother. If you really want to up the ante, use a finishing product, like the Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum In Oil, which will work to keep your hair sleek and moisturized.

5. Switch up how you style your hair.

When you sit down and really think about the nitty gritty of how you style your hair, you may be surprised at all the little ways you are adding volume without thinking about it. Little things like blowdrying your hair in the opposite direction of how it will be styled adds volume through the roots. Using a firm hold hairspray all over when you only need a little bit of hold strategically placed. Try out the TRESemmé Tres Two Ultra Fine Mist Non-Aerosol Hair Spray to help you to set your style in place.
