6 deadly sins of thin hair

beauty lifestyle blog thin hair tips

Do you have thin hair? Make sure you don't do everything to make them look even thinner and, as a result, become thinner. Here are 5 deadly sins committed on thin hair.

1. Degażowanie

I have not come across this method of cutting hair in any good hairdressing salon, there was usually a Chinese knife or simply "ordinary" barber scissors used consciously. While thinning can be a satisfactory method of cutting for thick and dense hair, unfortunately it will not work on thin hair because it will only unnecessarily thin it. Degassing thin hair usually results in cutting it excessively. Anyway, excessive shading is also not conducive to fine hair. It's a pity it took me so many years to get to this.

 

2. rectification

I am the owner of straight hair myself, which I liked to emphasize with a straightener. Unfortunately, straightened hair, versus brush-dried hair, falls out simply poorly. And yet you can give them a completely different "look" by twisting the straightener a bit around its axis during straightening and obtaining a "rotten" look. Still, straight but crumpled hair has much more volume. And if you like curls, there is probably no bigger ally for fine hair.

 

3. Electrification

It's hard to say that someone intentionally electrifies their hair, but inappropriate cosmetics, contact with sweater / hood fabrics that have not been secured with even a thin layer of rinse liquid, or even an inappropriate brush or comb can make our hair very static, So they will also "stick" to our head, creating a "helmet", and there is no question of volume here. I know what I'm saying - my hair is masters of static, not only in winter.

 

4. Coloring in dark colors

Do you know that black makes you slimmer? Unfortunately, also on the head. In addition, regrowths lighter than the color of the hair intensify the impression of thin hair - sometimes they even look like bald spots on the head, so women who do not suffer from hair deficiency should allow themselves for really dark hair.

 

5. Coloring in solid colors

A uniform color can optically reduce the volume of our hairstyle. Fortunately, today even fans of uniform, natural colors can add volume to their hair, giving it subtle reflections that look very natural. Also, slightly lightened ends will enhance the effect of natural coloring or allow to introduce some "confusion" into natural hair. Our hair naturally shades from the sun, so the longer the hair, the brighter the ends, so don't be afraid to emphasize it.

 

6. Inappropriate cosmetics

Too strong detergents in shampoos (such as SLS or SLES), ingredients of petroleum origin, substances such as PEG, and in conditioners mineral oils or silicones - all these products, when used for a long time, weaken our hair, some stick it and block access to the hair also nutrients. On the other hand, too heavy conditioners or masks can overburden the hair, so our daily hair care should be perfectly matched to them, usually different for summer and different for winter.

 

I am curious what hair do you have? Have you been struggling or are you struggling with the problem of lack of volume or thin and delicate hair? how are you dealing with this?

    Unfortunately, yes, for a long time my hair was thin and very delicate, but recently I discovered a chill herbal spray from DLA Cosmetics and their hair wash, so I can see really big effects in the hair volume 🙂

    Mine changed completely with the change of cosmetics to wax Pilomax. They are stronger, smoother, comb out better and do not pick up static. I recommend

      I have exactly the same experience.
      I never thought that I would rebuild my hair in a few months.

    More beneficial for my hair is the use of Wax Pilomax cosmetics that do not contain SLS, silicones or parabens than cosmetics that have them.

    I had dark and light hair although I have very few of them. In my opinion, it's ok here and here. Degreeping is the biggest mistake that happened to me (the idea of ​​a hairdresser). When it comes to inappropriate cosmetics, I agree here, it is of great importance. For me the difference is visible to the naked eye. Hair after Wax Pilomax is more powerful although still thin. They are better arranged, it seems that I have many more. Of course, hairstyle is also of great importance and I would also consider it a lot.

    Do you recommend a brand of cosmetics for thin hair? I have Insight now, it's pretty good, I'm running out and maybe I'll try something different.

    • 22.06.2016

      I used Insight for almost a year, but it did not work in the long run and I kept looking, now I am testing Artistique and I am satisfied for now, and I have already used one shampoo and one conditioner 🙂

      Thanks 🙂 maybe I can try Artistique now. Insight is ok but something is missing.

      In my winter, my hair "flattened out" started to electrify like crazy. And my mother and sister had very dry scalp and scalp, my hair.

      Unfortunately, it also dries for me, I only use a scalp to clean it, and I wash my hair with every second wash. Where can I buy Artistique cosmetics, can't find them anywhere?

    • 23.06.2016

      I just don't know if the distributor made a reservation that it can be sold only through salons because I was looking for it for several months ... write to me at kontakt@spodkocyka.pl : )

      Some time ago, after persuading my sister, I was tempted to use Seboradin regenerating shampoo. This treatment consists of a lotion, balm and a beautifully fragrant mask. I admit that I haven't used it for a long time, but I noticed the effects after the first few times. It seems to me that in the case of thin hair, such regeneration is a great option, because they are most exposed to all factors.

  • 15.06.2016

    So I should be blonde? 😀 In general, reflections follow me, I might be tempted 🙂

    • 15.06.2016

      Maybe not blonde, but bright reflections will definitely increase the volume of hair 🙂

    How does this knowledge that mineral oils and silicones weaken hair come from? Is it supported by some reliable source or heard on the Internet?: P

    • 11.06.2016

      I have a great hairdresser who focuses on health and ecology and recommended me to eliminate these ingredients from hair care products and after a year I feel a lot of improvement 🙂
      I also read large ones and opinions about oil derivatives are very divided ...

      Well, divided sentences ... I don't want you to misunderstand me, I didn't want to urge you or anything, although maybe the tone of this comment was not very pleasant. Sorry about that. It just irritates me a lot in blogs to duplicate information heard elsewhere that doesn't really have scientific backing.
      As for silicones, it is well known that they cannot be packed with hair, as users of dove conditioners have probably learned. However, it seems to me that on my thin and delicate hair a certain dose of silicones is needed. Oily cheese to the tip weight them, even if it uses a minimal amount. Silicones not only prevent frizz, they also protect hair very well, which is why I don't eliminate them completely from care. Particularly that I tried several times without good results.
      Pozdrawiam

      Sure Kasia, I understand you perfectly. I am also disturbed by duplicating various unverified information, or just the promotion of cosmetics for children that even an adult should not use, or foods packed with chemistry and glucose-fructose syrup.
      When it comes to silicones or mineral oils, in the case of thin and delicate hair, I think that at least it is worth trying care without products containing ingredients of petroleum origin or without strong detergents. However, there are people who have such strong and healthy hair that the strongest shampoo packed with harmful chemicals will not visibly worsen their condition. Hair for a given care also gets used, so changes are needed, and the choice of cosmetics without silicones is so large that probably everyone can find something for themselves, if of course 🙂

      Or maybe we will eliminate silicones because of our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren? The silicone ends up in drinking water from which it can no longer be filtered. It goes into our body and beautifully clogs our cells, which become slippery, beautiful, shiny and carcinogenic ...

    • 23.06.2016

      I haven't heard of it yet, but if it's true, then another argument against them 🙂 probably the strongest 😉

    1. I've been doing it for half my life with 2. I have no problems and although I have thin hair, they are slightly wavy, which looks like there is a bit more hair than it really is. 3. it's sometimes unavoidable although I see that some brushes electrify me more than others and e.g. tangle teezer is totally not for me. 4 and 5 are not my problems, I have blond hair by nature, which are a bit darker underneath and even platinum 6 on top. I make a notorious mistake because although shampoos without hair do a good job for me, unfortunately I have more greasy hair on them, so I can't do it well, and without hair.

    • 11.06.2016

      oh, I envy the number 2, I tamed the tangle teezer somehow and I comb my wet hair with it and since I use good hair care cosmetics it is not terrible for them, and I love to massage my hair with it, I envy 4 and 5, and I recommend looking further 🙂
