Noticing that your hair is starting to thin is always going to be quite distressing, especially as we are constantly bombarded with images of celebrities and models with long, flowing, thick hair on a daily basis.

It can often make us feel unattractive and self conscious, even though thinning hair is one of the most common symptoms of a variety of common conditions such as stress, or even be a hereditary problem.

So how can we deal with noticing our hair falling out or thinning? We’ve already covered the facts about hair loss in our infographic, so this time, we’re going to look at how we can move past the fear or baldness and look at some of the ways in which we can live with thinner hair and still feel confident!

Improve Your Diet

Your diet has a lot to do with how strong and healthy your hair is, so it’s important to start watching what you eat, especially if you have only just started to notice your hair thinning.


It could simply be that you’re not getting enough minerals and vitamins that support the growth of your hair. These include iron, protein and zinc, which are all essential for healthy growing, strong hair follicles.

If you are starting to notice your hair thinning, try increasing your intake of these minerals by eating foods which are known to be rich in them on a regular basis –  you should start noticing a difference in your hair’s condition in no time.

Use Known Hair Styling Tricks

Believe it or not, you can style your hair to make it look ten times thicker than it actually is – and you don’t have to visit a hair dresser every single time, either!

Blow drying your hair upside down is a great way to add volume with very little effort, just make sure that you’re protecting your hair from the heat of the hair dryer by using a good quality heat protection spray.


Adding layers to your hair is also a foolproof way to add the illusion of thickness to your hair. You may think that cutting into your hair is a bit counterproductive, but, adding various different layers into your hair gives the eye more to look at, making to look thicker!

There are also hair products that are available which are specifically designed to make thinner hair look fuller and thicker. From shampoos and conditioners to root boosting powders and sprays, there are so many products to choose from, it’s never been easier to volumise and “thicken” your thin hair!

Invest in a Wig or Hair Piece

Many people believe that resorting to wearing a wig or hairpiece is resigning yourself to a future of thinning hair. However, we think that investing in these attractive, useful products are a great way to boost your confidence.

Rather than damaging your own fragile hair, you can style your wig to your heart’s content, and even have some wacky, vibrant colours if that’s more your thing! It also means that you can change your look drastically with very little effort; fancy having an elegant, long haired look one day but a shorter lighter look another? Just pop a different wig on!

Look Into Hair Replacement Surgery

Sometimes other solutions simply don’t work, or aren’t feasible for you to try. Rather than feel as though you are stuck with thin, uninspiring hair forever, there are surgical options that are available to you which can help you restore your hair.
