We have lately been inundated with a lot of queries both at this site and our salon from women asking us what are the best hairstyles for thinning hair for women. Generally the question comes with a degree of anxiety and desperation. Well today and as we have done on many occasions, we have good news that you will find quite welcoming.
Rather than state right our there is just one perfect hairstyle suitable for thinning hair we rather like to take a holistic approach to treating the hair and then choosing the right hairstyle. As you will soon see, basically any hairstyle will suit thin hair in women.
Short hairstyles for thinning hair for women often makes the problem worse. Imagine in desperation the woman chooses to have a close cropped hairstyle? That will only making the thin hair more prominent. So we do not recommend ultra short hairstyles.
Did you know that each time you color your hair that the hair color ingredients actually cause each hair strand to swell? That is why when you leave the hair salon your hair is vibrant and full giving that perfect hairstyle look. That’s because the color ingredients penetrate each hair strand and swells the hair.
So based upon that one point alone, the first step for choosing hairstyles for thinning hair for women is to consider adding a color to your hair.
Once your hair is colored you will see an immediate difference in your hair. The hair will be fuller as each hair strand will uniformly swell giving that full body hair look.
Maintaining Hairstyles For Thinning Hair For Women
To maintain each hair strand to swell, you simply use products that are specifically designed for volumizing each hair strand. These products include volumizing hair shampoo, conditioners, treatments and hair sprays.
The ingredients of these products are designed to penetrate the hair strand causing each cell in the hair strand to swell.
When you use hair volumizing products you will see an immediate improvement. The hair will look a lot fuller than it did prior to any such treatment.
Choosing Hairstyles For Thinning Hair For Women
So as you can see, by taking a holistic approach to your thinning hair and using hair color and volumizing products, your choice of hairstyle now becomes wide and varied. Your hair is fuller and the choice of hairstyle can be anything you like, as your hair will be very close to what it was when you were much younger.
If your hair is thinning towards the extreme side you might consider wearing it medium length or shorter as the weight of the hair will pull down the strands accentuating the thin look.
By wearing your hair shorter you can take away this weight and style it in such a way that adds body to the hair.
It will take just a short time to experiment with your hair which product works best.
Starting with volumizing hair shampoo and conditioner will give an immediate result. Follow this with a weekly hair treatment and use a daily spray to maintain the swelling of each hair strand.
The biggest mistake we have seen when choosing hairstyles for thinning hair for women is that women who do have thinning hair will on most occasions wear it as a very short hair cut. For volumizing products to work, there needs to be some length to the hair. The ingredients work on each hair strand from the root to the tip giving a uniform swell affect.
Volumizing hair products can be purchased online from reputable companies as well as your local hair salon. We recommend hair salon quality products as these products are specifically designed to volumize the hair. Over the counter hair volumizing products work but they are not as effective as what you can by from your salon or online.
At the start of this article we did say we had good news for you and as you can see, by using products designed specifically for thinning hair, you options are greatly increased in choosing hairstyles for thinning hair for women.
