What To Avoid When You Have Thinning Hair?

What To Avoid When You Have Thinning Hair?

1. Avoid Using Too Much Product

While it may be tempting to load up on styling products to add volume to thinning hair, using too much can weigh your hair down and make it look even thinner. Opt for lightweight, volumizing products instead.

Try our Curry leaves shampoo which is a sulfate-free alternative to have thicker, stronger hair. It gently but effectively cleanses the scalp. Whilst Curry leaves strengthen hair, Mandarins leave a refreshing fragrance to rejuvenate your senses.

2. Avoid Stress

Stress can contribute to hair loss and thinning, so it's essential to find ways to manage stress levels. Practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga to help keep stress at bay.

3. Avoid Neglecting Your Scalp

A healthy scalp is the basis for healthy hair growth. Make sure to cleanse and exfoliate your scalp regularly to remove buildup and stimulate circulation.

Our Tea tree scrub, which is made up of Australian Tea tree oil, Walnut shell powder and Peppermint oil, cleanses the scalp thoroughly and gently. It purifies the scalp, removes dead cells and soothes an irritated scalp. In fact, it even reduces scalp oiliness and dandruff so that you can enjoy healthy hair!

4. Avoid Styling Carelessly

Rough handling of thinning hair can cause breakage and further thinning. Be gentle when styling and avoid pulling or tugging on your hair.

If you’re using heat tools for styling hair, spray our Argan oil heat protect and conditioning mist before styling. The mist provides heat protection for up to 230℃.*

5. Avoid Teasing/Back-Combing

While teasing or back-combing hair can create volume, it can also cause damage and breakage, especially in thinning hair. Instead, opt for gentler styling techniques or use volumizing products to add lift.

Try our Curry leaves conditioner for fuller, thicker hair. Powered with Curry leaves extract and Vegan Biotin, the conditioner strengthens strands. The refreshing fragrance of Mandarin essential oil is sure to leave your senses jolted.

6. Avoid Over-Coloring Your Hair

Frequent coloring or bleaching can weaken hair and contribute to thinning. If you color your hair, try to space out appointments and opt for gentler, ammonia-free dyes.

7. Avoid Wearing Tight Hairstyles

Tight hairstyles such as ponytails, braids, or buns can put strain on the hair follicles and lead to breakage and thinning. Opt for looser styles or embrace natural, low-maintenance looks.

8. Don’t Disregard Your Diet

Nothing is better than a balanced diet for healthy hair growth. Make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains to nourish your hair from the inside out.
