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).

Disguise Thick Hair

If you already see signs of hair thinning you can prevent your hair looking flimsy! Below are cards provide hairstyle and haircare tips for fine hair.

My hairstylist said taking prenatal vitamins really helps your hair too. But I'd imagine a lot of the supplements you mentioned in this card are probably in them!
How about the opposite? my hair is wavy and thick. I don't straighten or blow dry but I shampoo daily and always have it up.
@aabxo May I trade hair with you then! lol! Why do you keep it up? Are you younger middle aged older? Have hormones kicked in yet? You must be blessed and gorgeous hair runs in your family too? Ask the expert @Hairconfetti! Sounds like you are doing something right with diet, washing, conditionders. Are you saying you want to thin it? Because I know some people with thick hair use the thinning shears as part of their hair cut. Though I would enjoy what you have!
@redridergirl I am 21. Lol & I have a poor diet. Protein but no calcium. My mother actually has thin hair. I have my father's thick hair. I've thought about shears but I don't know whether that would give me split ends or not. As far as washing, nothing special. Just shampoo. I don't use conditioners XD
I do not know what to use in my hair that will be healthy for my hair?? can someone please help me
