Helpful Tips to Deal With Thin Hair:

Though hair thinning is inevitable as you age, there are certain things you can do to slow the process or stop more hair fall. We’ll discuss these below:

1. Protein-rich diet

Protein is the best nutrient that helps in hair growth. So, make sure you take plenty of protein-rich food everyday. Other things aside, this protein will at least stop excess hair fall.

2. Quit smoking

Tobacco is not just harmful for your health but also for your hair. Smoking also restricts the blood flow towards the hair follicles thereby reducing the hair growth. 

3. Medical conditions

Medications or frequent usage of medicines can affect hair growth in a major way. They can cause hair fall and also hair thinning.

4. Don’t use too many hair products

Sometimes, using too much heat or products with too many chemicals can be damaging to the hair. So, if you are already observing hair fall, then do not use any styling tools or hair creams on your hair.
