3 hairstyling tips for thinning hair

Tips for styling thin hair

Vichy scientific communications expert Laurie Jacquet identifies three key areas when it comes to looking after thinning hair. Firstly, it’s important to be gentle with your hair. Avoid brushing too roughly or just after your shower: instead, use a comb to separate hair post-conditioning
and remove the excess of water to facilitate the drying process.

Heat damage can worsen the appearance of thinning hair, so consider letting your hair dry naturally instead of breaking out the blow dryer. If you usually wash your hair at night, loosely braiding or plaiting hair will help fight frizz, making hair easier to style in the morning, and will help you gain volume. If you really can’t do without your blow dryer, try removing the nozzle so the heat diffuses better.

Faking thicker hair

Thin hair that’s prone to breakage should avoid using hairdryers on the warmest heat. For extra volume, blow drying your hair upside down on a cooler setting will help improve its appearance. Laurie also recommends massaging your hair at the roots to help relax the hair fiber. This won’t just help stimulate your scalp’s circulation, improving follicles’ overall health, but will also help tease the root upwards for a volumizing effect.

Switch up your hairstyle

Finally, it’s important to pay attention to your hairstyle. For an instant dose of volume, try switching up the way you part your hair, as the way your hair naturally lies could be contributing to its thinner appearance. Avoid flat-ironing hair, which often emphasizes sparse hair distribution. To emphasise your hair’s natural texture, allow hair to dry naturally before applying a light balm or mousse to give shape.

While the above tips will help improve the appearance of thinning hair, if you often struggle with hair that lacks volume and strength, Vichy Dercos Densi Solutions has been clinically proven to boost hair mass.[1] In just six weeks, hair mass is significantly improved, with 96% of test subjects noting thicker hair.[2]
