8 Ways to Prevent Thinning Hair


As a woman, hair forms an integral part of your personality. Short, long, straight, curly - we’ve all enjoyed a perfect hair day where we have had an extra spring in our step. On average, women lose around 100 strands of hair each and every day. But if hair begins to thin and we are losing more than the average amount, it can be distressing. Fortunately, there are steps we can take to prevent thinning hair in our diet and hair care routine. 

1. Keratin

Hair follicles are made mostly of a protein called keratin. If protein levels in our body drop, this can cause a weakness in hair follicles and result in thinning hair. Consider incorporating hair care products that are rich in keratin into your regime. We would recommend Amika’s The Kure range. Providing keratin-like benefits from a plant source, it’s formulated to repair and strengthen hair strands.

2. Omega 3

Numerous studies have shown Omega 3 nourishes the hair and promotes hair growth. Incorporating omega 3 into your diet and hair care will help to restore full, healthy locks. We recommend adding Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil to your hair care routine. Made with Cassis Seed Oil, it’s rich in omega 3 and omega 6 to moisturise and strengthen your hair.

3. Biotin

A healthy scalp provides a great foundation for hair to grow. Ensuring that your scalp is healthy can stimulate hair follicles to promote hair growth and prevent hair thinning. Biotin is a good ingredient to look for in hair care products for thinning hair. We would recommend Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo for the best results.

4. Vitamin D

Certain vitamins such as Vitamin D are important in for cell turnover which assists with hair growth and retention. Incorporate more Vitamin D into your life through sunshine, dietary changes and supplements, and don’t forget to look for this in your hair care products. We would recommend the Olaplex No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask to strengthen and protect your hair as well as stimulate new growth. 

5. Vitamin A

Vitamin A is made up of retinoids that influence the hair cycle and support healthy hair growth. As with other vitamins, you are able to incorporate more Vitamin A into your diet as well as your hair care regime. Again, we would recommend the Olaplex No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask for great results.

6. Green Tea Extract

Green tea extract has been proven to have a positive effect on those with thinning hair. It minimises the chance of hair loss and strengthens each hair strand to protect against further damage and breakage. For great results, incorporate the Oribe The Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo into your hair care routine.

7. Protein

Incorporating more protein into your diet and ensuring that hair care products contain protein is beneficial when looking to prevent hair thinning. The 3D Volume and Thickening Shampoo by Amika contains hydrolyzed rice protein to improve hair thickness and hydrolyzed vegetable protein which thickens, volumises and hydrates, making it a good addition to your hair care regime.

8. Panthenol 

Panthenol (Vitamin B5) has long been used in hair care products for anti-hair loss. It improves the health of the scalp and supports hair growth stimulation. Rich in panthenol, we recommend the Bumble & Bumble Thickening Volume Shampoo for best results.
