Sleek and beautiful hair is an important part of your self-confidence and overall appearance, and we know that experiencing hair thinning or other types of hair damage can be frustrating. At Spornette, we are here to help you select products that are most beneficial to your hair and take other steps to stop thinning hair and promote hair growth. Here are six helpful tips on how to stop hair from thinning and restore its health!
Avoid Certain Hairstyles
While we know it can be fun to experiment with a wide variety of hairstyles, certain hairstyles can wreak havoc on your hair. Excessively tight ponytails, braids, cornrows, and similar hairstyles should generally be used infrequently to keep your hair from breaking, falling out, or otherwise becoming damaged in the first place, and they should be avoided altogether if you notice that your hair has started to fall out in the specific areas that these hairstyles affect.
Temporarily or permanently switching to simpler and looser hairstyles that minimize the use of rubber bands or other tight products can go a long way toward slowing and stopping hair loss that is clearly linked to hairstyles that are hard on your hair on their own.
Avoid Certain Hair Products
Likewise, certain hair products can lead to hair loss or otherwise damage your hair, especially when they are used frequently. Matching the right products to your hair’s specific needs can be complicated, but your hairstylist can provide recommendations for quality products that are less likely to damage your hair or make it fall out.
At-home hair dye and similar products are often filled with chemicals that may cause long-term damage to your hair, and using a hair dryer, curling iron, flat iron, or other product that uses heat too frequently can cause your hair to become weak, brittle, and more likely to break or fall out. Inexpensive brushes, combs, and other styling products are often made from cheap plastic and other materials that are not the best fit for your hair, and swapping these for styling products made from quality materials that were designed with your hair type in mind can make your hair easier to manage without damaging it.
Even low-quality shampoo and conditioner can damage some people’s hair instead of strengthening it, and it can be helpful to consult your hair stylist to find products that are more likely to work well for your hair.
Choose a Quality Brush
Brushes that are made from quality materials are much gentler on your hair than cheap alternatives that are made from lower-end materials. Spornette’s expansive collection of brushes provides professional-grade options for every hair type and style that are made from materials that were carefully chosen with your hair in mind.
Such hair brushes, like the Ion Fusion Boar/Nylon Cushion Hairbrush, the long nylon bristle of the hairbrush penetrate all hair types with ease. The surrounding shorter boar bristles create a tuft of bristles. These boar bristles nourish, soften, add shine, and boost the overall health of the hair and scalp. This brush smooths thick, thin, normal, curly, wavy, and straight hair types with this hairbrush.
Improve Your Diet
Like other parts of your body, the health of your hair largely depends on the quality of your diet. Increasing the amount of protein you consume each day can be a particularly important step in giving your hair the support it needs to thrive, and making sure you get a minimum of 40-60 grams of protein every day can make a significant difference when it comes to encouraging your hair to stop falling out and become sleek and beautiful.
Many people do not reach this minimum without being intentional about doing so, and getting enough protein to support your hair and body’s needs can be particularly difficult for vegans and vegetarians. Some of the best sources of protein include:
- Chicken, beef, salmon, and other meats
- Greek yogurt
- Beans and legumes
- Protein shakes or bars
- Cottage cheese
Fruits and vegetables are also filled with vitamins and minerals that healthy hair needs, and it can also be a good idea to take a multivitamin or supplement of a specific type of vitamin that you are not getting enough of to give your hair the extra boost it needs. Some of the most important vitamins your hair needs to grow include zinc, iron, and vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, and your doctor can evaluate your current diet to identify specific vitamins or other nutrients that your hair may not be getting enough of to stay healthy and grow properly.
Frequently feeling stressed can also have a negative impact on the growth and overall health of your hair, and it is a common reason for suddenly experiencing hair thinning or loss. Finding ways to keep your stress under control can help your hair stop falling out and benefit your mood and body in a wide range of other ways. Some helpful ways to reduce stress include:
- Journaling or reading
- Listening to calm music
- Doing yoga, walking, biking, or other types of exercise
- Participating in other activities you enjoy
Try Medication or Laser Therapy
Over-the-counter hair loss medication, low-level laser light therapy, and other hair loss treatment options may also help to stop thinning hair. However, it is important to keep in mind that these treatments can only provide long-term results if you locate and solve the problem that is causing it.
Changing hair products or hairstyles, improving your diet, and reducing stress are still important, even if you quickly start to see results from medication, light therapy, or other treatment options.
