Use shampoo, conditioner and styling products designed for weak or thinning hair.
Squeeze water from your hair gently, rather than drying it roughly with a towel.
Hair is at its weakest when wet, so treat it gently using a wide-tooth comb. Dry hair before you go to bed as allowing the pillowcase to become damp regularly can cause the growth of bacteria that’s detrimental to your scalp.
Skip wearing very tight ponytails, braids or buns every day or you risk traction alopecia, which is caused by prolonged or repeated tension on the scalp.
Regular brushing is fine, but try to avoid tugging at the roots.
Use a good-quality hairbrush that won’t snag and pull.
Keep heat styling to a minimum and avoid excessively hot temperatures.
Colour treatments can weaken the texture and quality of your strands, so talk to your hairdresser about kinder options.
Scalp massages have been found to improve circulation to the scalp, stimulating hair growth.
Eat well, maintain a healthy weight, and get enough sleep and exercise.
