Does it seem like your hair is getting thinner and thinner? Don’t worry, you’re not hallucinating, it just might be. There’s no reason to worry; thinning hair may be an inevitable change that can’t be entirely controlled—it happens because the size of the hair shaft diminishes with age. Age is part of the cause of hair that grows in thinner, but stress, hormonal changes and even a poor diet can also be the root of the problem.
According to New York stylist Mary Zongone, the effects can be somewhat minimized with the right plan of attack. To battle the effects of thinning hair, you need to take a two-fold approach: double up on the vitamins and nutrients that are known to increase density and grow hair, and use the right products to create the illusion of fullness. Try out some different shampoos and conditioners geared toward thinning hair like these from Aveda or a supplement that promotes hair growth like Viviscal. “Load up on supplements with biotin, which help grow thicker, stronger hair. Also, you can disguise the look of thin hair with the right cut. Angle around the face or add a heavy bang to change the look,” says Zingone.
