First, Identify the Cause
Is it improper shampoo or using the wrong products? Ask your stylist which products work best with your scalp and hair. A lot of shampoos are free of sulfates,but sulfates used properly can really cleanse your scalp, some sulfate-free shampoos may not be getting your scalp as clean as you need it. Especially if you are using a lot of styling products. Dry shampoos give you an extra few days of styling and give your hair a boost at the roots,but they can clog follicles and dull hair and need to be thoroughly removed.
Are you losing an abnormal amount of hair? You normally loose 100 hairs a day. But if you notice excessive shedding call your doctor. You may have an underlying health problem If your hair is falling out more than normal. Remenber some seasons you will shed hair more than normal,so do not be alarmed if your hair falls out more during certain times of the year for a few months. Hair shedding is actually a normal part of the hair growth cycle. It’s the phase where hair comes out so a new one can come through.
Clogged follicles can result in thinning hair. If you are cleansing properly but still experience thinning hair, your follicles could be clogged from hormones, dry scalp or oily scalp. Get the follicles unclogged. My favorite shampoo for unclogging follicles is Framesi Morphosis Densifying shampoo. Its natural ingredients, blueberry extract, Vitamin H(Biotin) olive and palm oils, and apple stem cells not only unclog follicles but help with hair growth.
Bumble and Bumble Scalp detox is also good, with micellar water and a fizzing foam, it feels like pop rocks on your scalp for a squeaky clean scalp.
There are a lot of home remedies too, like honey, coconut and olive oils and even mashed avocado. My personal favorite is castor oil. It works on a lot of scalp issues.
These are pretty messy and time consuming, I prefer the easy way out. Especially when there are so many good products with natural ingredients. But if you have time and feel like cooking up a home remedy, then do it!
I also find that home remedies can be expensive. Mashing organic avocados and coconut oil is not cheap, especially if you need to do it 3 times a week and you know you can’t save an avocado once mashed.
Which ever route you take, remember consistency is key, one time use does not net results, and no results are instant.
