The One Hair Product You Should NEVER Use Because It Causes Thinning Hair

Wrinkles, fine lines, and thinning hair are just all apart of getting older. Fun, isn’t it? You can use creams and serums to help disguise the signs of aging on your face, but hiding your thinning hair can prove to be a little bit more difficult.

If anything, it’s comforting to know you’re not alone with this very common beauty issue. Many people — both male and female, old and young — struggle with thin hair. While genetics play a big part in thinning hair, sometimes the products you’re using can also aggravate the situation.

If you have thin hair, you should completely avoid using co-wash or two-in-one shampoo and conditioner products.
This is because these two-in-one products are loaded with ingredients that do not wash out easily and therefore leave behind heavy buildup and residue. This chemical buildup can lead to thin hair because it blocks the hair follicle and stunts new growth.

"Some shampoos are worse than others because the ratio of cleansing agents versus ingredients that don't easily rinse off (i.e. silicones, conditioners etc.) is weighted heavily toward the conditioning side, not the cleansing side,” said Gail Federici, founder of Color Wow and co-founder of John Frieda, to New Beauty

When co-wash products like this only focus on conditioning and not cleansing, the chemical ingredients don’t ever get completely rinsed out of your scalp. Shampoos and conditioners, co-wash or otherwise, containing sulfates, silicones, and pearlizing agents should be avoided to reduce scalp buildup.
