When it comes to our male guests, one of the most common hair concerns we hear about is thinning hair. It might be associated with the ageing process, but many men find that they begin to experience thinning hair in their 20s and 30s – and some even younger. While they’re all completely normal, things such as hair loss, receding hairlines and visibly finer hair can all affect confidence, meaning men want to know more about what they can do.
While there are lifestyle factors that can contribute to thinning hair (such as stress, a bad diet and smoking), questions such as when you might begin to lose hair and how thin it will get are mostly determined by genetics. Parents, eh?
The bad news is that this means that you can’t beat hair loss completely (unless you have a Wayne Rooney-like budget and can invest in a hair transplant). But the good news is that there are a number of things you can do to improve the appearance of thin hair. From products you can use to small changes you can make every day, we’ve got you covered with our tips for thinning hair.
1. WASH YOUR HAIR REGULARLY
When their hair starts to thin, some men cut down on how often they wash it as they don’t want to lose more in the shower. However, oily, unwashed hair actually makes the problem look much worse. Greasy hair looks even thinner than it is, and the oil can make any gaps in the hair look more obvious. Start washing your hair with a shampoo and conditioner designed to leave hair looking thicker and add volume – we’ve listed our favourites below!
