ir and is caused by beriberi, malnutrition, certain diseases.

Thinning can also be caused by the chemistry that gets to us from the atmosphere, which we receive through drugs, food, water.

First of all, you need to find out whether the small thickness of hair is your innate feature, or it is caused by some other factors.

Be sure to visit a trichologist to make sure that the problem is precisely the thickness of the hair, and not in their small number.


The doctor will have to assign the necessary tests and examinations, check their structure.

If any special problems are identified, then you will be assigned a special treatment.

To begin with, you need to eliminate power problems, if any.

If you notice that the curls began to change their appearance after applying any medications, then discuss it with your doctor, most likely, the treatment will be changed, and medications that restore the intestinal microflora that correct metabolism in your body are prescribed.

Vitamin and mineral complexes containing calcium, vitamins A, B, C and E, choline and inositol will bring unequivocal benefits.

The following products must be present in your diet, because our appearance is very dependent on what we eat.

So, in the diet you are recommended:

  • beef;
  • liver;
  • cottage cheese;
  • cheese;
  • eggs;

Remember the products that are very "like" your hairstyle.


Care for Thin Hair

After finding out the questions mentioned above, you can begin to compose a program for caring for your hair at home.

Cleansing with shampoos

Thin hair, as a rule, is not the only problem. As well as normal, they may have excessive dryness or fat content.

If you have long thin hair, pay special attention - at the roots they are usually too fat, but the rest of the length, especially the tips, dry, depleted, often split, as, for example, the model in this photo.

Having determined the type of hair, we select the right frequency of washing the head and the means for this. Dry enough to wash every 4-5 days, greasy - every 2-3 days.


At the same time, washing should be a two-stage wash - first wash off the skin fat, dust, cosmetics, then make a final cleansing.

When choosing products for fine hair, pay attention to the series with the appropriate notation and read the composition, you should avoid shampoos and balms containing silicones.

Silicone undoubtedly increases the thickness of the hair, covering them with a coating layer, however, it heavily weightens them, which will negatively affect the appearance.

Very fine hair perceives "treatment" with shampoos on natural herbal decoctions.

Such shampoos create the effect of condensation, thin rare hair seems much thicker, and the correct laying will create a hairstyle of the volume you need.

Also good reviews from ordinary children's shampoos, as they do not contain aggressive substances, gently cleanse our hair, contain a large number of natural substances.

Balms and conditioners possessing fine hair can only be used in small amounts, and only if your hair is overdried, have a porous structure, or split.

Apply the funds along the length of the curls and on the tips, avoiding contact with the scalp and the area near the roots, since the substances contained in them can form a film that prevents the skin from leaving the duct.


Fat curls do not need to be subjected to such a procedure, mineral water or a decoction of herbs is suitable as a rinse aid for them.

Drying thin hair is necessary in a natural way, since the influence of a hair dryer will only worsen their condition.

Do not rub your hair too much with a towel, perform lightly pressing movements, and brush after washing is necessary only after they have completely dried.

Food and masks

Hair masks are a very useful procedure, available for everyone at home.

Masks are prepared from natural ingredients, they lack any chemistry, this is a very useful treatment that you can do with your own hands.

Masks should be applied to the hair before washing the head, and then washed off with normal shampoo for daily use, the procedure time is 15-30 minutes.

The composition of the masks is quite diverse, especially the fine hair reacts to eggs, sour-milk products, burdock oil, oatmeal gruel.

Masks will be even more useful if you add vitamins, essential oils.

You can use a very simple recipe that will strengthen your thin hair and improve its structure: 2 tablespoons of green tea is poured with a small amount of boiling water( to make a gruel), add honey, cool a bit and add a mask of raw egg yolk.

The mask is applied over the entire length for half an hour. After 10-15 sessions, you will notice that the curls began to look much thicker, and the haircut got more volume.


At home, you can make another interesting mask-dry shampoo, in which there is absolutely no chemistry.

For it you will need: 1 teaspoon ground almond kernels, 1.5 tablespoons chopped root violets, 3 tablespoons corn flour.

All components are mixed in a dry form and applied to the roots of hair, gently massaging the skin.

After 10 minutes we comb out the mixture from the hair, using a soft brush made of natural bristles.

In addition to the cleansing effect, this mask-treatment thickens the structure of the hair, closing the pores, and also fills them with a light train of floral fragrance.

The mask is suitable for both dry and oily hair.

Suitable styling and hairstyle

When choosing a hairstyle, it's important to consider the peculiarity of your curls.

Usually hairstyles on thin hair are not too voluminous, so haircuts with a cascade shape - bean, quads, page( photo) - will look good, so the hair will appear thicker, and the hair will get a larger volume.

Do not get carried away by too short haircuts, because in your case it will seem that the hair is also rare.

The most suitable length, which will hide these drawbacks - this is from the earlobe to the shoulder.


To grow large braids is fraught with the fact that thin hairs under their own weight will tear or break.

Do not listen to "harmful" advice from friends to do "chemistry"."Chemistry" for your hair is the first enemy.

For some time, it will improve the volume of hair, but at the same time, "chemistry" will even more violate the structure of the hairs, which will eventually break down and fall out.

"Chemistry" dries very much, many owners of healthy hair are forced to begin recovery treatment after a perm, and what to say about the problematic.

To create a hairstyle effect, hairdressers are often advised to make highlights, or dye your hair in light colors, as you can see in many of the photos in our article.

This issue should be approached with caution, choose for coloring sparing paints, and when highlighting, you do not need to light up the strands of white.


Clarifying dyes remove colored pigments from hair, breaking their strength, while we do our best to strengthen the curls and improve their appearance.

Staining( toning, colouring) can make the hairstyle thicker, if you have thin greasy hair, because the excess of fat will be neutralized by the dye.

Daily care and styling

Remember that your hair requires a very careful attitude.

It does not matter why they became so, the main thing is to preserve what is available, improve their condition, strengthen them, if possible, make it even thicker.

Hair treatment, of course, benefits. Masks and washing are periodic procedures, and caring for your hair should be shown every day.

First of all, get rid of metal and plastic combs, you need to choose in favor of combs made of natural materials.

Daily massage with a natural bristle brush improves the blood supply of hair bulbs, which means it strengthens curls with a lot of nutrients, helps to improve the hair volume


Wooden combs perfectly remove static electricity.

If you use hairpins - pay attention to them. Many barrettes have metal mechanisms that break strands, bend them at a great angle.

Buy a few wooden pins, except for a beneficial effect on the hair, they will give your appearance a special style.

Household appliances stores offer women a variety of accessories, but thin hair owners need to be careful, otherwise all treatment, all activities will be a nuisance.

Excessive temperature effects are contraindicated to you, so when choosing a dryer, make sure that it has a cold air regime and a narrow nozzle.

As already mentioned above, thin hair is usually dried over the entire length, except for the roots, so when laying using a hair dryer, direct the air flow strictly to the roots, previously applying mousse, foam or a styling liquid with thermal protection effect.

But gels, wax and other similar chemicals, even those whose manufacturers promise to strengthen and improve your head of hair, you will not be suitable, as they will weight them, and instead of the volume of the head of hearing will have a dirty look.
