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.
Did you know our individual hair follicles shrink with age? Meaning thickness of strands decreases, often leading to more brittle hair in women. To make hair feel stronger again, choosing products carefully pays off. Dove Pro·Age Shampoo is formulated to replenish essential nutrients lost with age, helping to restore brittle hair to leave it 2x stronger*

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. Dove Intensive Repair Leave-in Conditioning Spray is a brilliant multi-tasker at protecting and fortifying hair. Smooth through, avoiding roots, for visibly fuller, softer hair
Try a round brush.
A round brush and a hairdryer 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 minimise 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
