Dove Help for fine, thinning hair

Help for fine, thinning 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 favorite 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.

    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 Youthful Vitality Shampoo for thinning hair is formulated to replenish essential nutrients lost with age, creating fullness without weighing hair down

    Find a reliable style.

    Something as simple as choosing a style that doesn't have a big part 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

    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 color has a mix of shades, it creates the illusion of contrast, making hair look fuller. Stuck for which color to choose? Consider your skin tone and natural hair color, usually choosing highlights and lowlights that are two shades lighter or darker will help enhance your look
