Hair thinning


Thinning hair can be caused by numerous factors including stress, hormonal changes, genetics and nutrition and diet. In fact it is more common than you’d think! Both men and women struggle with hair loss and thinning and it can be really hard to know what to do to keep your hair healthy.

If your hair has recently begun to thin, you may need to change your haircare routine. Caring for fine hair properly can mean a different approach, but your hair will thank you for it.

NIOXIN’s experts have shared their golden rules for thin hair care – to help hair stay stronger, nourished, and growing as healthily as possible.

Hair care tips for thin hair

Wash your hair regularly

Washing your hair regularly will help to get rid of build-up from products and oils on the scalp and strands, which weigh down hair and can leave it looking flat. Use shampoo and a conditioner that moisturise your hair and scalp.

Toweldry your hair

When it comes to drying your hair, first towel-dry your locks without using too much force – this can help to reduce breakages and tangles.

Dry with a medium heat

Blow-drying thin hair on a high heat can cause significant breakage and damage. Try switching it down to medium, or let your hair dry naturally (which might also give your hair extra body).

Invest in a boar bristle brush

The softer yet denser bristles in a traditional boar bristle hairbrush will be gentler on the scalp and hair strands – the density of the bristles spreads pressure out more evenly as you brush.

Brush the ends first

Always aim to brush the ends of your hair first, then working up towards the roots, to avoid tangles and breakage. Try to brush gently and avoid using too much force

Braid your hair

For long hair, style it in a braid for sleeping to help reduce breakage. Check out our Braids and Waves menu available in all salons.
