Is your hair feeling fine and delicate? Or have you noticed more hair loss when brushing and washing than usual? Don’t worry, hair thinning is perfectly normal and affects many people. However, if you are concerned about why your hair is thinning and what you can do about it, keep reading. We explain what to do for thinning hair. 

Why Is My Hair Thinning?

Hair loss is often triggered by genetics and/or age. However, there are other potential causes, including diet, stress and hormones. As such, making a few simple lifestyle changes can have a huge impact on the thickness of your hair. 

What to Do for Thinning Hair

There are many ways to tackle thin hair, but identifying the areas with the most thinning can help you to find the solution that works best for you. 

Eat a Healthy Diet

Ensuring your body gets the right nutrients can help nourish growing hair. We recommend eating three meals a day that are rich in essential fatty acids, proteins and vitamins to encourage healthy hair growth. Eat as much fruit and vegetables as you can – they benefit your existing hairs as well as new growth. 

You can supplement a healthy diet and further maintain your hair’s health with our Grow Pro Hair Vitamins. Rich in Biotin, they support great, thicker-looking hair. 

Switch Up Your Haircare Routine

Harsh products can affect the health of your hair and scalp, so choose your shampoo and conditioner carefully. Products that promote healthy growth are best for thinning hair. 

Luckily, you can make your scalp the optimal place for hair growth with our Grow Me Shampoo. It’s formulated with Vitamin B5 to help moisturise and protect the scalp, while strengthening the hair. Follow up with our Condition Me Conditioner to minimise breakage for stronger-feeling hair. Then, finish your routine with our Grow More Elixir to strengthen follicles and encourage new growth. You’ll never wonder about what to do for thinning hair again! 

Relieve Stress

Too much stress can negatively affect your hair, so practice relaxation exercises every day. Try yoga or meditation, go for walk, have a hot bath, or enjoy a self-care ritual. Just keep stress levels low to give your hair a chance to grow. 

How to Style Thinning Hair

Wondering what else to do for thinning hair? Changing your hairstyle can help make thinning hair less obvious for a thicker, fuller look. 

Change Your Parting

If you have a receding hairline, changing the direction your hair falls can help to cover it up. Or, try a middle parting that’s styled forward to mask the appearance of thin hair 

Go to the Salon

Your haircut can play a big part in the appearance of your hair. We recommend adding layers or opting for a shorter cut to make hair look fuller. Long, flat hair can enhance thinning, so it’s best to choose a style that adds volume. 

Be Gentle

Excessive strain on the hair can increase breakage and loss. Pay attention to the hairbrush and hair bobbles that you’re using – you want to avoid anything that tugs on the hair. Instead, we recommend using soft scrunchies and changing your brush regularly. 


Dry hair increases the chance of breakage, so thinning hair will benefit greatly from increased moisture. On top of using our Condition Me Conditioner, we recommend using a deep treatment too. Our Masque Me Hair Mask is rich in nutrients to help repair, hydrate and protect your tresses. 

Avoid Heat

Heat tools can cause damage that can lead to hair thinning. Where possible, try not to use heat on your hair. Or if you have to, turn down the heat as much as possible to avoid adding extra strain and always apply a heat protector.  

Our Protect Me heat protection spray is formulated with a myriad of natural hair health ingredients (including Sunflower Extract, Caffeine, and Coconut Oil) to not only help shield hair from heat, but retain moisture, prevent frizz and control split ends.
