Thinning hair can be a nightmare. Not only could it make a person look less attractive, but it could also affect one’s self-esteem and confidence. For some, thinning hair seems to be inevitable. For others, however, it could be an indicator of a deeper problem like stress, hormonal imbalance or thyroid problems.
Whatever the cause, thinning hair or having bald spots need to be addressed.
Get a flattering cut
A great way to create an illusion of thick hair is to add some layers to it. Short hair gives the appearance of more volume rather than when it hangs straight down and flat. Have your stylist add flattering layers or even an undercut.
Welcome having gray hair
Grays are a good sign of aging, especially if you have thinning hair. They can extend the cuticle of your hair and add some volume. If you do not like the color, you can touch up the roots at least once a month or add highlights to your strands.
Blow dry your hair
A good blowout after washing your hair will help add volume and lend thickness to your tresses. You will need a round brush for this purpose. Start by sectioning your hair and then blow dry it while damp. Dry your locks in the opposing direction to add more volume. You can also bend your head and blow-dry your hair backwards.
Seek professional help
You can benefit from various hair toppers, extensions and wigs to add volume and help disguise your thinning hair. If your hair is thin on the top of your head, you can get a hair topper, which will conceal your scalp. These hair toppers are handy for those who have bald spots because of sudden hair loss or a medical condition such as alopecia.
Alternatively, you can go for a more modern solution, such as smp nevada. This procedure involves tattooing the scalp using pigments, giving the appearance of new growth of hair on one’s head.
Use products that help thicken hair
Use a volumizing shampoo to ward off limp hair, puff up thinning hair and hide any bald spot. Look for shampoos that are free of alcohol and sulphates. These ingredients are very harsh on your scalp and can result in more falling and thinning hair. A volumizing mousse is also a great product. Spread a good amount over your tresses before you start blow-drying.
Use hairpieces or extensions
Hairpieces are meant to help patch up areas with thin or sparse hair. It is not a full hairpiece or wig that covers the entire scalp. Women add hair extensions to fill up certain areas and give the appearance of a full and thick head of hair. Just remember to look for natural-looking hair fibers and make sure that the color matches your natural hair color.
You can choose the stopgap and temporary solutions or go for the more permanent ones like scalp micropigmentation because of convenience and practicality. If you do not have time to go through all these rituals or attach your hairpieces one by one, an SMP may be your best alternative.
