How to get thicker hair and reduce hair loss

Healthy hair gives us confidence but it’s not always easy to keep our hair strong and lustrous.


Both men and women are affected by a whole range of specific hair concerns, with one of the most common hair concerns being thinning. Hair thinning can become a concern at any age and in any type of hair, which makes it a problem that’s both widespread and frustrating.


Fortunately, Aveda’s creates natural, plant-powered hair products that target the causes of hair loss due to breakage so that you can regain your radiant, voluminous hair.


What causes thinning hair?

Hair loss and thinning can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  1. • Genetics: If hair loss runs in your family, you may be more likely to experience it yourself.
  2. • Hormonal changes: Changes in hormones that occur during pregnancy or menopause.
  3. • Stress: Extreme stress can cause hair to fall out prematurely, leading to thinning hair.
  4. • Nutritional deficiencies: A lack of certain vitamins and minerals, such as iron and biotin.
  5. • Medical conditions: medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders and autoimmune diseases.


The best way to stop hair loss

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to hair loss, there are several things you can do to help prevent it. One of the best ways to stop hair loss is to take care of your scalp. A healthy scalp provides a strong foundation for healthy hair growth. Some ways to maintain a healthy scalp include:

  1. • Keep your scalp clean: Aveda’sscalp solutions collection contains products that help remove pollution and build-up in the scalp, and improve scalp hydration and protection.
  2. • Massage your scalp: Massaging your scalp can help increase blood flow and stimulate hair growth. Our scalp solutions stimulating scalp massager is a great option as it gently brushes the scalp to increase microcirculation.
  3. • Avoid tight hairstyles: Tight hairstyles, such as braids and ponytails, can pull on your hair and cause breakage.
  4. • Eat a healthy diet: A diet rich in vitamins and minerals can improve hair health, which in turn reduces breakage.
  5. • Reduce stress: Finding ways to manage stress, such as through exercise or meditation, can help reduce hair loss.
