Best Shampoo Types for Thin or Thinning Hair
Does leftover hair in the shower worry you?
On average, women lose up to 50 strands of hair daily—even more after using a conditioner. That being said, many women lose much more than 50 strands of hair, especially after washing it. If you fall in this category or think your hair is simply thin due to genetics or some other reason, you may want to buy a shampoo made specifically for thin or thinning hair.
There can be different reasons why your hair is falling out, and we’ll get to them later, but a proper shampoo is a great way to start treating it so it becomes stronger and thicker.
The first thing you should do is look for a shampoo with thickening and revitalizing properties. Its formula needs to reduce shedding and promote hair growth instead of simply adding volume since, after all, that’s not really solving the problem but rather masking it.
Of course, the best shampoo for thinning hair would both reduce shedding and promote hair growth while giving it more volume at the same time, so your hair not only looks fuller but actually becomes thicker as well.
Another thing to look for is natural ingredients and antioxidants like Vitamin E or ginseng that nurture the roots and encourage the growth of new strands of hair. Other hair-thickening ingredients include amino acids and biotin, as well as nourishing oils like menthol or peppermint.
Most Common Reasons for Thin/Thinning Hair and How to Deal With Them
Dandruff. If you have dandruff, this may be the primary cause for your problem. Look for anti-dandruff shampoos that treat the inflamed and flaky scalp.
Over-processed and dyed/bleached hair. If you regularly use a straightener or curling iron and/or have colored hair you frequently dye, you need to use a shampoo specifically made for over-processed and dyed hair.
Severe hair loss. If you have a serious problem with hair loss, it’s best to use doctor-recommended shampoos with hair regrowth formulas. These shampoos can usually be found in drugstores or stores specialized for hair care.
