HERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD AVOID IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THINNING HAIR
- DON’T make the turban towel-wrap a part of your post-shower beauty routine as this requires twisting, turning, and pulling on your mane, which can lead to nasty hair breakage.
- DON’T gather your thinning hair into tight hair bands, wrap hair bands around your head, or pull hair firmly into clips. When you have thin hair, “loose” is the key word.
- DON’T over-condition thinning hair, which can weigh it down and flatten it. Apply conditioner only to the bottom two-thirds of your hair strands, or choose a lightweight leave-in conditioner, such as a mist formulation.
- DON’T sleep on a pillowcase made out of a rough fabric. Replace cotton cases with silky-smooth ones to reduce friction.
- DON’T beat yourself up due to female pattern hair loss – you did nothing wrong, and there’s not one thing you could have or should have done differently. It’s genetic and was going to start happening no matter what you did to your hair when you were younger.
- DON’T avoid colouring your hair–just stick to the right shades. This means avoiding extremely light or dark hues, and favouring deep and rich shades that are close to your natural shade.
- DON’T live in denial about your hair loss, relying on brush-overs and wigs. Female pattern hair loss can be treated with REGAINE® for Women Foam.
- DON’T let too much time pass between haircuts. Split ends can inch up your mane, making tresses look even thinner and strands sparser.
- DON’T sleep on a wet head. Fine hair just doesn’t bounce back the same way thicker hair does.
- DON’T pull, tug, or yank at roots when brushing a wispy head of hair.
