Hair loss and thinning are, unfortunately, a common side effect of aging for many of us. In fact, over 40% of women over 40 will experience thinning hair (joy!). Therefore, if you’ve noticed your locks aren’t as weighty and full as they once were, you are most certainly not alone. It’s a natural part of aging, however, that doesn’t mean we just have to live with it.
These days, there are countless ways you can improve the thickness and appearance of thinning hair and we’re here to share our top tips with you! Read on and discover every way you can welcome your once lustrous locks back with open arms. From natural solutions to those that’ll thicken those tresses in an instant, we have a solution that’ll suit you perfectly…
Address Underlying Issues That May Be Causing Thinning Hair
At 40, we don’t expect to be losing such a great deal of hair to the point we’re noticing very sparse patches, or shedding over 200 hairs a day. If you feel like this is happening to you, it’s always worth speaking with a health professional or licensed trichologist for medical advice and to address what may be causing it.
Talk To Your Stylist About Wefts
If you’re wanting to achieve thicker hair quickly, or you feel you’ve tried all you can to help it gain volume naturally, wefts could be just what you’re looking for.
Usually, the best wefts for thinner hair are tape-ins. Here at the Anushka Spa and Salon, we are proud to partner exclusively with Platinum Seamless. Platinum seamless offers the highest quality, 100% Remy human hair. They are hand-dyed and hand-assembled meaning your hair will look completely natural, incredibly beautiful, and much thicker after application.
Consider Beautiful Face Framing Extensions
Now, you may be thinking that hair extensions are really designed for those wishing to achieve length. Well, that’s no so. Even if you want to keep your hair the same length it is now extensions might be the answer to your prayers. Why? Many people actually decide to go the extension root because adding hair wefts from the root instantly improves thickness.
What’s more, using this treatment to deliver stunning face-framing extensions is a sure fire way to achieve thicker and fuller hair in just one appointment! Your hair will, of course, look thicker owing to an extra volume of strands, but it will also feel it which is an incredible sensation after, sometimes, years of trying to achieve that thickness yourself.
Try Biotin Supplements
If extensions aren’t for you and you’ve exhausted your hair thickening product search, we suggest trying biotin capsules! Additionally, this dietary supplement seems to work particularly well for those with hair loss caused by type 2 diabetes, and those with biotin deficiencies.
Biotin is a water-soluble, vitamin B supplement that helps the regrowth of thinning hair. Also, in many cases, those taking the supplement have reported their hair is in better condition and much shinier than before too. High doses of biotin may also help with brittle nails as well as hair growth for fine hair.
Introduce Yourself To Nutrafol
If basic supplements just aren’t enough for you, you may want to give Neutrafol a try. What is Nutrafol you ask? It’s a patented range of vitamin supplements that focus on taking care of your thinning hair problem from the inside out.
The great thing about Neutrafol besides their clinically backed research, no artificial additives, and approach to targeting the root cause rather than the symptom, is that you can choose the supplements that’ll work best dependent on the stage of hair loss you’re at.
For example, those simply wishing to improve thickness and strength can choose Nutrafol Women. Those that experience thinning as a result of menopause can select Nutrafol Women’s balance. There is also a supplement for men.
Switch Out Your Hair Products For Kerastase Genesis And Densifique Lines
If you’ve been using the same hair products year in and year out for as long as you can remember, you’re not alone. Once we get comfortable with something, it’s often hard to break the cycle! Well, it might be time to take stock of your bathroom contents. Just because those shampoos, conditioners, and styling products say they’ll thicken your locks, doesn’t mean they always will.
To help those looking for recommendations, we’ve sought out the best hair brands out there that actually work to thicken your locks after 40. Our favorite? Kerastase’s Genesis and Densifique lines.
Genesis is Kerastase’s newest haircare collection for treating hair fall. Each product uses a professional formula to reduce breakage, and strengthen your hair from within. As well as shampoo’s and conditioners, the Genesis range also includes products such as the Masque Reconstituant Hair Mask for weakened dry hair. Anushka Spa & Salon highly recommend their Défense Thermique Blow Dry Primer any time you decide to heat style thinning or weakened hair.
When it comes to hair that’s thinning rather than just merely breaking, Densifique is the hair care line for you. The products in this line will increase hair density whilst strengthening and adding texture to your tresses. Bestsellers in this line include the Bain Densité shampoo with Hyaluronic acid and the accompanying Fondant Densité Conditioner.
