Thinning hair and hair loss are more common in women than you might imagine, and no less demoralizing. 78% of men and women of all ages experience the problem of thin looking hair. Reasons can range from the simple and temporary—a vitamin deficiency—to the more complex, like an underlying health condition. If you haven’t read it already, make sure to read about some of the common and the not-so-common reasons why you might be seeing less and less hair on your head.

Who better to ask for tips for thicker, fuller looking hair than our friends at Nioxin? They’re the experts…and here’s what they had to say:

1. Wash hair daily.

Clean hair has more body as there is a minimum oil to weigh down.

2. Towel-dry your hair gently.

Too much force can cause unneeded tangles and breakage.

3. Blow-dry with a medium heat.

Using a high heat setting on your blow-dryer can damage hair.

4. Scrunch hair while blow-drying.

Gently scrunch hair while you blow-dry for extra lift and volume.

5. Brush the ends first.

Starting at the ends will detangle gently and reduce the chance of breakage.

6. Wear your ponytail or bun a little bit loose. 

This will minimize stress along the hairline, which can contribute to breakage.

7. Massage your scalp.

A 3-minute scalp massage will help increase blood circulation to the scalp.

8. Lift hair during blow-drying.

Det extra volume by lifting hair from the root while you blow dry. 

9. Braid your hair.

If you have long hair, braiding it for sleeping will help reduce breakage.

10. Condition hair regularly.

Conditioners help lubricate the hair, making it stronger and more resistant to damage.
