Thin hair is a problem for many women how do they style it when there is so little of it? That is why we have put together some hairstyles that you can use to cover up thin hair. Before we look at them, it is important to mention in passing some of the common causes of thinning hair. The most common cause is the use of chemicals.
If you notice that your hair is breaking after a perm, you should not permit again. Use treatments to make it stronger. Diet is also of some concern when it comes to thin hair. Eat right and avoid junk. Stress and medication can also contribute.
So how do you best wear your thinning hair?
1. Layering with side parted bangs
Layering is the best secret to cover thinning hair. The layers add a bit of volume so that the thinness of the hair is not immediately apparent. Part your hair on the side and then patiently layer it making sure that each layer covers the thinness of the one beneath. By the time you are done, you will look like you have thick, voluminous bangs.
2. Side parting with a ponytail
A side part is a clever way of drawing attention away from the top of your head where thinning is usually most apparent. Simply part and then tie a ponytail at the nape. You can tie it at the center or you can tie it on the side if you want to define yourself a little.
3. Short, cropped look
This is a great solution if your hair is thinning at the ends. Get rid of the parts that are dying by getting a cropped haircut. Explain that you want your hair layered. If it is done right all you have to do every morning is spritz it with a volume providing product and run a wide-toothed comb through it. It is important to pause here and discuss chemicals a little. Women with thin hair must be very careful about the kinds of hair products that they use. Choose safe rather than style. Make sure that everything, from your shampoo to your volumizer is gentle and can deal with hair breakage.
4. Side parted messy wave
Again, you are using a side part to draw attention away from the top of your head. The mess makes you look great and helps the parting as well. Layer your hair and then mess it up a bit to get the curls in. Note: Don’t part your hair in the middle if you have thin hair as that is where the hair is usually thinnest.
5. Extreme side part
Who said you can’t take it all the way? Remember the Lady Di look? That is what you are going for. It is a great way of wearing extremely thin hair (we are not saying that our dear princess did). To get it right you will need the help of a stylist. Just explain that you want your hair parted extremely to one side and you want to have an asymmetrical look when you are done.
6. Side parted outward feather bangs
Feathers can work well for people with thin, long hair so long as a parting is used. You will need to iron the hair flat into feathers but make sure that you don’t use too much heat or you will damage it further. Mess it up a little when you are done so that it looks natural.
7. Layered curls
This one is for women with long hair. You need to layer your hair and then curl it. Mess it up a bit you can use some of the hair from the sides and back for more volume.
We looked at some of the causes of thin hair and went on to hairstyles so let us finish with what you should eat if you have thin hair. You need to eat foods that are rich in both minerals and vitamins as well as protein.
Protein is important because that is what hair is made of. Eat foods like fish, lean meat, various veggies, fruits and nuts if you want your hair to for back to normal health. One last secret, eat lots and lots of avocado and you will see a difference.
