Environmental factors like stress and products damage can lead to thinning hair, but sometimes it’s just genetics and age. Frustrating, we know, but everyone’s hair starts to thin over time–some more than others.
“Hair loss and hair thinning is part of aging — it affects all of us,” said Dr. Julia Russak, a board-certified dermatologist at Russak Dermatology. “The hair is a protein and to produce protein, our bodies must undergo healthy metabolic activity. Aging, stress and other factors may decrease your body’s ability to produce these essential proteins.”
While the problem may be more or less inevitable, there are things you can do to help combat the issue and make it barely noticeable. Enter, expert-approved hair care products designed to thicken and disguise spares hair.
The first step in fighting hair loss is a dietary supplement designed to spike hair growth at the root of the problem (root, get it?). Incorporating a protein-rich shampoo and conditioner can also do the trick and help stimulate stronger, thicker hair. Aside from those standard products, the way you style your hair can make a huge difference in how full and healthy it looks.
Michael Boychuck, a celebrity hairstylist and owner of Color Salon inside Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, recommends a best-selling drugstore hairspray to give your locks more volume.
“Schwarzkopf's drugstore line offers salon-like quality at an affordable price. Their weightless spray re-energizes hair strands using plant extracts and caffeine to give dull, lifeless hair volume, style and hold for thinner hair types,” said Boychuck to Today.
