The dreaded ball of hair in your brush, on your floor, or in your drain does not always mean the end of your thick hair! There can be many reasons for the thinning process of your hair. Sometimes there is a seasonal transition or ‘turnover’ for your hair, or it could be a deeper issue. Here are a few things that may help decide what that underlying cause could be.
Hair is a direct reflection of your diet. A diet high in omegas and vitamins is going to assist in hair growth, healthy follicles, and strong hair strands. Vitamin B, Biotin, and others in these families assist in the health of your hair. Foods high in biotin include eggs, yeast and liver. If you don’t take in enough of these you can supplement with Biotin in pill form. Complement this with the new shampoo carried by Seven Salon called Serie Expert INFORCER, which includes Biotin in the formula to increase strand strength and minimize breakage.
2. WASH AND CARE
Using quality products available at professional salons will create a clean and strong pallet for the hair to remain strong and not brittle. A re-moisturizing product, such as Serie Expert Absolut Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, is key for hair that is abused by the use of heat tools such as flat irons, blow dryers, and curling irons. A re-proteinizing product, such as the Pureology Perfect 4 Platinum Shampoo and Conditioner, is necessary for hair that has been abused by bleaching processes. A re-balancing product, such as the NEW Serie Expert Inforcer, which is great for hair that has mixed types of damage, will distribute a balanced amount of protein and moisture to the strands to prevent them from breaking and is GREAT for people growing their hair out as well. The cleanser from Tigi Urban Antidotes called REBOOT is key for great scalp condition as well to inhibit any bacterial growth, build up or other hindrances that could lead to hair loss! A clean scalp can allow for proper growth and stimulation.
Minoxidil is the only over-the-counter medication for hair loss approved by the FDA for use by both men and women. There are a few shampoos that actually contain this product. Seven Salon recommends DS Labs as the choice for fine and thinning hair.
4. MEDICAL ISSUES
There are a few underlying medical conditions that can contribute to hair loss or even a change in texture. Imbalanced hormones, age, malnutrition, thyroid conditions, a change in medications, postpartum issues, and a lack of the ability to absorb food nutrients can all contribute to the hair thinning process. See your doctor to gain information, knowledge and proper help for these issues.
