Dove How to manage thin hair

How to manage thin hair

How we choose to style our hair says a lot about us (like when we wanted to say ‘experimental’ with that perm as a teenager). As we age, we embrace who we are and find a style that works best for us. But at the same time hair becomes finer and we can sometimes see hair thinning, meaning getting body into our favourite style can be challenging. It’s not all doom and gloom, however – if you’ve caught yourself thinking, ‘my hair is thinning!’ here are six top tips for making hair look fuller. 

  • 1

    Choose the right products.

    Did you know our individual hair follicles shrink with age? Meaning thickness of strands decreases, often leading to the perception of thinning hair in women. To make hair feel fuller again, choosing products carefully pays off. Dove Advanced Hair Series Vitality Rejuvenated Shampoo for thinning hair is formulated to replenish essential nutrients lost with age, creating volume without weighing hair down

    Find a reliable style.

    Something as simple as choosing a style without a strong parting can create the illusion of fuller hair (as strong partings can reveal more than we’d like of our scalp, making hair look thinner)

    Nourish hair daily.

    It’s not just our bodies that need nourishment; it’s our hair, too. So it’s important to treat it to nourishing care if we see hair thinning or becoming coarse and dry. Our Advanced Hair Series Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil is a brilliant multi-tasker at protecting and fortifying hair against damage. Smooth through, avoiding roots, for beautifully soft hair

    Care for the roots.

    One of the easiest ways to make thinning hair look fuller is to care for the roots. Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray gives hair extra lift by invigorating roots, leaving it visibly fuller, while keeping your hair weightlessly moisturized

    Try a round brush.

    A round brush and a hair dryer can be our best friends when it comes to styling. By pulling hair upwards from the root and using a large, round brush when drying, you can create serious volume

    Consider a new colour.

    Introducing hair highlights and lowlights can be a great way to minimize the appearance of hair thinning. When hair colour has a mix of shades, it creates the illusion of density, making hair seem fuller. Stuck for which colour to choose? Consider your skin tone and hair colour, finding similar colours to scalp skin tone can help reduce the appearance of thinning at the hairline
