People lose hair for various reasons. Illness and medication (like chemotherapy to treat cancer) can cause hair loss. Hair loss can also be inherited from a parent. Often, hair thins because it is fine-textured — or because too many harsh chemicals have been used on it — so it breaks easily.

These are hair care tips to help protect hair, prevent further hair loss, and add volume to your existing hair.

1. Try Coloring for Hair Loss

If you inherited a tendency for hair loss, you likely have very healthy hair overall. Therefore, your hair can benefit from permanent or semi-permanent color to give body and volume to hair.

Medications can weaken hair, causing it to break or fall out. Semi-permanent color is good in this case, too, because it does not contain ammonia or peroxide. The ENJOY product line has neither. It will not damage hair, but will give it body and volume.

If your hair is fine-textured, semi-permanent or permanent color is fine, as long as it is professionally applied. Colored hair can easily get over-processed, which damages it, causing further hair loss.

2. Shampoo and Condition Your Hair When Dirty

To protect hair, the best practice is to shampoo only when hair is dirty. Because fine hair gets dirty faster, people with fine-textured hair need to shampoo more frequently — even though fine hair breaks more easily.

For that reason, fine-textured hair benefits from a good shampoo and volume-building conditioner.

I am the master of thinning hair. I have been dealing with it myself for 12 years. I know first hand where and how to and apply, and I can offer many alternatives to lace frontal and wigs. Most of my medical clients have thinning hair from stress, lack of DHEA, and damaged cells with the use of select methods along with my own personal hair issues and extensive wellness background. There are options to achieve results without the use of chemicals.

although there are good medicated products that seem to result in hair density, once the product is stopped hair loss resumes. We need to treat this with natural pharmaceutics, pH balanced products, and healthy lifestyle changes. The key to most disease in the body is lack of proper nutrition to feed the scalp and internally cleanse.

As you can see in most of my video testimonials, many of my clients have thinning hair and I have the most experience with this issue in a private, one on one, kickback, no frill studio.
