Noticing your hair is thinning is a quick way to ruin anyone's day, but there are things you can do to help fight against a receding hairline. Too much shampooing can leave your hair stripped of essential oils so it's probably a good idea to ditch the shampoo a few times a week and use a cleansing conditioner instead. You'll still get the clean feeling you'd get from shampooing, but you'll gradually notice more volume and stronger hair.
'Why am I suffering from thinning hair?' I hear you ask; A number of things can contribute. Stress can play a massive part and it's that age old tale of the vicious circle. Feel stressed = your hair will fall out. Notice your hair is falling out = get stressed about it. A quick win when it comes to looking after your hair is to keep check on what you are eating. Foods high in protein, Vitamin C, Zinc, Potassium and Iron are extremely important for strength and keeping those follicles in good condition.
Shampoo and conditioner, for maximum benefit, should be kept separate. If you’re looking for something quick and easy, grab a 2in1 shampoo and body wash and use a conditioner on it’s own.
To use, put a small amount into your palm and apply directly to your hair after shampooing. If you naturally have quite greasy hair, you might wanna avoid massaging too much into your scalp and focus on the ends instead.
Instructions on the bottle will recommend leaving the product on for a few minutes. While it is important to follow these instructions as closely as possible and you'll see the best results by leaving it to work its magic for slightly longer, if you are in a rush, feel free to wash it off as soon as you have massaged it into your scalp. Most good conditioners get to work straight away so it doesn't have to be as time-consuming.
If you get bored waiting for the two to three minutes to pass while your conditioner works in, time it so you can shave your beard, wash your body or do anything else that is part of your normal routine.
