What makes your hair thin and dull?

Caring for thin hair is essential to avoid it becoming dull.

Remember, shiny hair that can reflect light is, above all, healthy hair that is cared for gently with the right products, from roots to ends. If your hair is not naturally thin and dull, it could be that your lifestyle is making the problem worse, in addition to the aging process.

Depending on where you live, pollution and hard water are two corrosive elements that damage hair and cause dullness. To counteract hard water, you can easily install a special filter onto your shower head.

Poorly applied color, or permanent coloring products left in for too long, can also cause the problem. If your hair has not been correctly prepped before the chemical coloring or perm treatment (often strong) is applied, it can become dried out and lose its shine. And your entire head of hair will suffer for it.

Caring for thin hair the right way

Just like curly and coily hair which is always in need of hydration, thin and dull hair are more fragile than other hair types. These types of hair therefore need special attention to avoid further damage. Especially when aging of hair comes into play. When hair aging begins, hair loses its density and becomes even thinner, until the whole head of hair looks tired and lacking in volume.
