3 mistakes you're making with your fine hair
Are you treating your fine hair with the love it deserves? Whether your hair’s brittle and broken as a result of over brushing, damaged from too many products or even suffering from a poor diet, Dercos Densi-Solutions can help.
Mistake #1: Brushing hair too aggressively
If your hair is fine or lacking in volume, it might be tempting to give your roots a boost with a teasing comb or styling hairbrush. However, just like rubbing hair too harshly with your towel or bath sheet post-shower, aggressively brushing or combing can significantly weaken thinner hair. Instead of your usual blow-out, try gently combing hair when wet, after applying a strengthening conditioner such as Dercos Densi-Solutions Regenerating Thickening Balm, which melts into hair leaving fibres feeling smooth, supple and strong. Rinse and leave hair to dry naturally, adding a little thickening spray to the lengths of the hair while half-damp.

Mistake #2: Overdosing on harsh ingredients
Going overboard with at-home hair dyes and treatments, as well as failing to protect hair when using heat-related styling tools, is bad news for all hair types - but fine or thinning hair needs to be particularly careful. Certain chemicals and synthetic ingredients, such as formaldehyde and ammonia, can seriously weaken the hair fibre, causing breakage and split ends (and that’s without mentioning the risk of a potential allergic reaction). If you color your fine hair, it’s essential to choose a hair care system that respects the delicate fibre of thinner hair while minimizing color fading. If your area is known for hard or poor quality water, consider installing a filter in your shower or bath to minimize the risks of damaging or weakening your hair fibers.
Mistake #3: Eating an unbalanced diet
You wouldn’t expect to have great skin without eating a balanced diet, right? Well, the same goes for your hair! Protein is essential for optimal hair growth, so fill your plates with chicken, lean red meat, nuts and shellfish. Fruits and veggies count too: vitamin C also encourages the body to absorb iron, a key mineral when it comes to regulating circulation, while B-vitamin biotin, found in nuts, oats and brown rice, has also been linked with hair density. Finally, Dercos Densi-Solutions’s innovative formulation includes antioxidant Resveratrol, with studies suggesting its significant effectiveness against oxidative stress.
