Keep your hair clean

Richard Mannah, hairstylist and art director at label.m, urges people with fine hair not to skimp on shampoos. It recommends Label.m’s thickening shampoo, with its three basic ingredients, mulch fiber, raspberry extract and Nonared coffee beans, to give your hair more body. If necessary, a dry shampoo like Drybar Detox is excellent for absorbing fat and giving volume to your locks.

Station to the conditioners

If you have soft hair, do not weigh it down by drenching it with conditioner. Instead, Richard Mannah recommends applying the conditioner only to the tips, which tend to be drier.

Cut them often

Make an appointment for a cup every six to eight weeks if you want to keep your hair healthy and bulky. And ask your hairdresser to avoid abusing the gradient. “You have to bring volume to your hair, especially to the tips,” said Richard Mannah, but the excess of gradation is the opposite.

Bet on products

If you have fine hair, styling products are your secret weapons, especially the label.M volumizing foam, which brings volume and movement to the root. To give maximum effect, the barber recommends lifting each wick and passing the dryer, but activating the Cold Air option to achieve maximum volumizing effect. “A light crepe of the roots will give you even more volume.”

Do not abuse the heat

Be careful not to adjust your heating devices to the maximum temperature. For example, a temperature of 200 ° C (400 ° F) is far too high for fine hair, according to dermatologist Debra Jaliman, MD. “You have to aim for a lower temperature,” she says, “otherwise your hair may literally bake and break.”

A hair care every week

Dr. Jaliman strongly recommends that her patients with very thin hair treat them thoroughly once a week to help repair damaged areas and give them volume. Try the Amika Nourishing Mask with Jojoba Seed Oil to repair and strengthen your hair and sea buckthorn berries, rich in omega fatty acids and antioxidants, including vitamins A and C – a real treat for your locks!

Eat well to have strong hair

Proteins are at the base of any healthy hair. If you miss it, your body will be unable to replace the hair you lose each day. Nutritionist Brooke Alpert recommends getting your protein in organic chicken, wild salmon and Greek yogurt (richer in protein and lower in sugar than other types), as well as in vegetables such as legumes, seeds and nuts. Not only are nuts and salmon rich in protein, but they are also full of omega-3 fatty acids, excellent for the health of your hair follicles – it’s their good health that depends on your hair. Greek yogurt is also rich in Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), which would help your blood flow to the scalp, which stimulates regrowth. “One of my favorite foods for healthy hair is pumpkin seed,” says Brooke Alpert. This delicious seed is rich in zinc, a very important mineral since its deficiency is linked to hair loss. “

Take some pills

Supplements can help you fill in your vitamin and mineral deficiencies that are good for the hair. Nutrients such as biotin and keratin can help strengthen and thicken your locks. If your hair is thin, dermatologist Dendy Engelman recommends the use of Reserveage Keratin Hair Booster Powder With Biotin, which also contains vitamins B3, B5, B6, copper and zinc. Supplements such as the Qilib Hair and Health Reinforcement Biotin and Multivitamin Supplement repair your hair with ingredients such as Minoxidil, whose effectiveness has been demonstrated.
