How to Stop Hair From Thinning?

Hair thinning is a natural part of aging. You're not alone if you notice a receding hairline in your late 20s. There are many reason why your hair starts to thin: hormones, genetics, stress, diet, and excessive chemical treatments. While we can't do anything about hormone and genetic reason we can prevent hair thinning from altering our diet and hair care habits.

Eating Right

When you don't eat enough food or lack in necessary vitamins, your hair will lose the nutrients that make it strong and healthy. What you can start doing is incorporate more vitamin c, calcium, iron, potassium, selenium and omega-3 in your diet.

Limit Chemical Treatments

Stay away from perms or hair coloring that contain strong chemicals such as peroxide and lye. Shampoos and styling products with sodium lauryl sulfate and silicones can exacerbate scalp and follicle problems! Also, if you can try not to wear your hair up all the time. The tightness and hair straining can actually develop traction alopecia (hair falling do to pressure of pulling).

@redridergirl thanks for sharing your experience with us! Greatly appreciate it.
How about the opposite?...lol my hair is wavy and thick. I don't straighten or blow dry but I shampoo daily and always have it up.
Hormones, Thyroid Disease, the worst because you can't absorb nutrients is Celiacs! Those three do me in! I went bald and dropped to 70 lbs when I got Celiacs around 40 yrs old - not pretty! Over time my hair grew back but different texture and colors. Dermatologist said don't use hair growing shampoos, don't blow dry at all or very minimal, don't ever use a hot iron, don't put it in a pony tail or anything that pulls on it, wash it every few days only, wash it with a light conditioner only and as needed a very gentle shampoo, use leave in conditioner, towel dry, if necessary lightly blow dry low setting, set the rest of way with soft curlers. I did that for years and my hair looked better! I got lazy it's easier quicker to blow it with a heat protectant on it. The difference it does in damage to my hair is noticeable. The older I get with menopause hormones I am going back to the old routine to try to repair my hair again! Ladies take care of yourself while you are young and at every age!
@ChelseaHeyes I don't know about hair loss but I think constantly blowdrying your hair (without heat protection) can damage the follicles.
I do not know what to use in my hair that will be healthy for my hair?? can someone please help me

7 Ideas to Upgrade Your Hair
Two times in a year I would switch up my hairstyle, at the end of December and mid-June. December is understandable. New year, new hair! If you think about it 12 months is a really long time. June is the perfect month to get a brief makeover to freshen up for the rest of the year. Whenever you're ready, here are some cool ideas to switch up your hair. 1. Wig Not sure if you notice but in recent years wigs is rising in popularity. Part of the reason is Kylie Jenner has made wig a thing. In addition, Ladies don't want to damage their hair by changing their hair color every other month. Therefore, wig is a cheaper and safer option to look fab, minus all the mess. 2. Extensions Wigs can be bulky and some people just hate wearing a helmet of hair over their own hair. Hair extensions is another solution to obtain new color without the use of dyes. The great thing about extension is you have full control of placement and style. The option is endless, so be creative! 3. Temporary Hair Color This option is for those of you who don't like having anything on your hair. There are products like temporary hair color rinses, chalk hair, eye shadow hair that will go away in one wash. No commitment but it does take some work. 4. Traditional Color Change You can always rely on the good old method of coloring your hair. Box formula can give you instant results without having to book an appointment or spend a lot of cash. However, professional color service will give you gorgeous and more long-lasting results. Highlights such as ombre and sombre are styles you might want to opt for this summer. 5. Smart Haircut If you want to get your hair short but don't want to go all in, take baby steps. It's okay to have an evolving haircut. Start getting a few inches and then go shorter until your desired final cut. Experiment and see what works for you! 6. Texture Change Long hair can be annoying during summer and you might be considering to trim it. However, if you want to keep the length but is bored with your current hair you can try changing the texture. It's easy to give your hair new looks. Simply use heating tools, braids, or twists. The best part, it works on any hair length. 7. Bangs This is a subtle yet big change to any hair. One little trim can alter your entire style. You don't have to commit to it right away. You can always test it out with faux bang clip-in.

Save Your Hair From Color Damage
I was looking through pictures of girl groups hairstyles within a year their hair could change up to 4-5 times. Regular people like myself will probably get their hair done 1-2 times a year. I guess one reason to explain the short lifespan of their hairstyles is kpop fans expect the idols to look different for new comeback and concept. So, before dropping any announcement, Hairstyle is usually one of the biggest hint for comebacks. Truth is their hair must be extremely damage from the excessive use of chemical and heat styling. However, they are celebrities and they must have hair professionals to maintain the health of their hair. Otherwise, we'll be staring at limpy hair, and split ends on stage. Celebrity Hair Secrets: 1. Protein mask. This is normally used to strengthen the hair before styling. 2. Hair serum and oil. A dollop of this will quickly give your hair shine and moisture. 3. Supplements. No matter how many products you use you need to get enough nutrients to maintain over health and beauty. For those of you who color your hair or use heat styling tool often these are the products that can help keep your hair healthy. Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Best for dry and damaged hair. Coconut oil is packed with moisturizing benefits. if your strands are extremely dry you can leave this on overnight then wash your hair in the morning to get glossy, healthy hair. Nexus Emergencee Reconstructing Treatment. The texture for this hair pack is really unique. It is gel-like but if you apply it before your hair washing routine you'll end up with super soft hair. Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3. Olaplex is the best hair treatment for pre and post hair coloring. Professional colorist will use it in the coloring process. Sometime coloring the hair might take 1-2 days so a take home treatment will be offered to rebuild broken hair.
