What is thin hair?

Many people think that their hair is naturally thin...and so many don't know the real cause of their thin hair! Thin hair is a specific hair type, and should not be confused with thinning hair. Here's an overview.



How to recognize naturally thin hair

All women do not have the same hair volume. Some women with thin hair are often jealous of other women with thick hair and loads of volume. Thin hair has some specific characteristics that take getting used to: it is flat, fragile, harder to style, and does not tolerate just any shampoo. Unfortunately, those gorgeous high buns worn in modern princess style are not for everyone.

But where does thin hair come from? As with many other things, beauty, natural shine, strength and thickness of the hair (i.e. volume) are features passed from generation to generation. When hair is naturally thin, genetics has a lot to do with it. However, an unhealthy lifestyle, harsh hair products, and especially an unbalanced diet can damage the hair and deprive it of all the nutrients and vitamins it needs for healthy growth. This promotes the appearance of thin hair.

When hair aging results in thin hair

We often have a tendency to mix up thin hair and hair losing density, but these are two very different things. With age, the skin on the face becomes marked and the hair loses its beauty. In the scalp, micro-circulation is no longer sufficiently stimulated. Hair grows more slowly and is, in particular, thinner. The hair fiber loses thickness and the hair loses density and volume.

So how can you tell the difference between thin hair and hair that is aging? In the second case, the change is progressive and obvious. In a few years you can see the difference in the mirror and feel it when you touch your hair. To do the test: regularly gather your hair into a low ponytail. You will feel that the mass of hair is progressively losing thickness. Your hair just isn't like it was before. Rest assured, there are solutions to help you fight against this!
