Thin hair: how to deal with the hair issue affecting more and more women
Even if you’re not born with hair that’s on the fine side, it can often become a concern later in life. Here’s how to tackle hair thinning and reclaim your confidence.
If you feel like you’re alone in your battle against thinning hair, rest assured you’re not. NEXXUS research recently discovered that 50% of US women have either fine or thin hair, and that 67% of these women have taken no action to address it*. Thinning hair seems to be on the rise, but there are plenty of ways to bring back your volume and fullness.
Can haircare fix fine, thin hair?
Whatever the cause of your fine or thinning hair, step one is to speak to a medical expert to rule out any underlying health issues. Step two: switch up the products you use daily to give your strands the best chance of surviving future breakage. There are two overarching types of hair loss: the first involves entire strands shedding prematurely and is known as telogen effluvium, and the second is volume loss due to fragile hair breaking away. The latter requires less damaging heat and chemical exposure, and the introduction of hair-fiber reinforcing ingredients that do more than just add shine to the exterior of the strands.
Does protein-powered haircare work?
Our hair is made up of proteins, and every NEXXUS range is infused with a unique PROTEINFUSION blend, harnessing the best proteins from nature to target the protein loss caused by specific hair damage. The new NEXXUS Unbreakable Care Range is formulated especially for fragile, fine or thin hair prone to breakage, harnessing the power of keratin, collagen, and biotin to strengthen each strand from the inside. The ingredients were carefully chosen after NEXXUS scientists discovered some inherent differences in the structure of thicker hair compared to more fine hair, pinpointing the best proteins to reinforce and replenish them, leaving stronger, fuller, thicker-looking hair.
What’s the best haircare routine for fine hair?
Focus on making your haircare routine as nurturing as possible: turn the temperature down in the shower and on your hairdryer, invest in a gentle detangling comb, and reach for products that work with the hair to boost its overall health and volume. The sulfate-free Unbreakable Shampoo and Conditioner work together to gently lift impurities and create millions of weightless micro-thickening bonds, thickening each strand and enhancing the body, shine, and strength of your hair. Boost their benefits with the Unbreakable Care Anti-Breakage Root Lifting Thickening Spray, whichcontains a strand-thickening complex of peptides and essential nutrients to visibly increase the volume of your strands as you style.
