Every day we lose between 50 to 100 strands of hair, through natural shedding. This can vary depending on the individual’s hair density, health and hormones and even from factors like the weather.
It’s important that if you are suffering from fine or thinning hair that you don't let your scalp become overly greasy. This tends to block up the follicles and stop them from functioning properly.
A great tip is to rise with Sage tea. Make the tea strong and leave to cool.
We recommend rinsing hair daily with it for several weeks which also helps with dandruff! What a great added bonus.
Another tip is to use Peppermint juice. Water down and sprayed on your scalp and massage through. Then leave on for an hour or so before washing. This helps to stimulate the blood flow and increase circulation to the hair follicles.
A University study published in the UK concluded that women who suffered from thinning hair due to hormones and had
placed a damp, cool towel on their scalp for 20 minutes a day
were far less susceptible to hair shedding than those who did not wrap their hair. The study successfully concluded that it was another natural form of stimulating the remaining follicles. Not to mention it's cheap and easy to try.
Make sure that you don’t avoid light brushing for fear of shedding. The natural oils that our scalp produces are a great way to protect your hair and the only way to spread them down the hair shaft is to brush.
