I Have Thin Hair and These Are My 5 Most Effective Tips to Care for It

Here’s the truth: You can't change the size of your hair follicles. If you were born with fine hair, it’s genetics, and no product will completely alter that. Of course, there are ways to maintain your hair health, add volume, and keep it from getting any thinner. First, though, you have to better understand what’s going on in your body. I've talked to a lot of experts about my hair, from hairstylists and colorists to nutritionists and scientists. There are tons of lifestyle choices that can lead to thinning hair—stress, hormones, thyroid issues, diet, etc.—but if those things aren’t an issue, there are innovative products that can help beef up the look and feel of each strand. All you need is some research and education. And guess what? We did the heavy lifting for you there.

Below, find a few ways to add volume and help thicken the look of your hair, from shampoos to supplements and nutrition. Because hair health, and health in general, isn't all one thing. We have to maintain a 360-degree view of our bodies to better understand each part of it. Such is definitely the case with my fine hair texture. Keep scrolling for all the answers you need, and let us know on Instagram what works for you (these are my favorite products, FYI).
