7 Mistakes That You Need to Avoid to Strength Thin Hair

    1. Washing the Hair With Hot Water

Limiting the use of hot water to wash your hair is not a piece of easy advice, especially in the winters. But truth be told, hot water is causing more harm to your hair than good.

The scalp’s natural oil, sebum, is essential for healthy, strong, and glossy hair. Hot water washes away sebum, disrupts the moisture barrier, and causes excessive flakiness and irritations on the scalp, leading to hair loss and hair thinning. 

    1. Tying Up Wet Hair

Even if you are running late for work or are in a hurry to board a plane, remove tying wet hair from the long list of urgent hacks. Wet hair is delicate and fragile. It stretches easily, and when you pull them to style, it causes follicles to break.

Instead of pulling wet hair in a ponytail or any other tight hairstyle, use a clip or wide band to let it air dry and stay put in place.

    1. Over Use of Products

Thin hair is challenging to style, groom, and manage, especially when the baby hair flies away to their will and ruins the hairstyle you so want to carry. 

The idea of using too many serums, gels, oils, or balms is to get the lusciousness and thickness of thin hair back. However, it doesn't work this way. Since thin hair is not voluminous and healthy, topical products having heavy consistency weigh it down, making your tresses look flat and lifeless. 

The key to rejuvenating and renewing thin hair is to be moderate with the use of products. Not too little or not too much. Take just about enough amount that should do the trick.

    1. Avoiding Hair Color

It is a common belief that hair colors and dyes are not beneficial for thin hair, but the reality is quite the opposite. Colors add life and visible thickness to your hair, making them look attractive and vibrant. 

The shades and contrast of highlights in strands give your hair a fuller, shinier, and smoother appearance. However, make sure that the hair colors are free of harsh chemicals and follow a strict hair care routine later.

A good conditioner provides your hair with significant therapeutic benefits for a silky smooth look and soft texture. It moisturizes and tones the hair, coats it with a protective layer, and boosts vitality. Skipping the use of conditioner is like depriving your hair of the nourishment it needs.

    1. Aggressively Combing the Hair

Combing the hair in an aggressive manner is never a smart move. It causes stress on cuticles, increases breakage, makes the follicles vulnerable and weak, worsening the overall hair health. For styling your hair, use a wide-tooth comb. Starting from the ends, detangle the knots and slowly move up to the roots.
