fine, thin hair. i have always had it. i'm the one envious of those with the awesome thick ponytails because mine look like those pathetic wisps of a pony that we put on toddler girls. even though my hair was always on the fine/thin side of the tracks....it got worse post having babies. much worse. after kids, it seems like my hair is falling out at a rapid rate. it's all over my pillowcase in the morning, it clogs up the drain in the shower and it all over the floor after i blow dry my hair. now that turning 40 is right around the corner (eek!), it seemed like the perfect time to start to reverse this problem.
i am pleased to say that the changes i have made have made a *huge* difference in my hair. i no longer find hair on my pillowcase and the rest of the loss has been drastically reduced to maybe 90% less than before.
this is what i did:
1. purchase a silk pillowcase.
i talked to my fabulous hairdresser about my problem and this is the first thing he suggested. it has done wonders. (plus, i have read that sleeping on a silk pillowcase also helps prevent wrinkles...so, it's a win-win). here is the one i purchased:
2. start taking biotin/silica.
i spoke to my dr. and she suggested that i start taking this product to help strengthen and grow my hair. the bonus is that it also has done wonders for my nails. note: i am NOT a dr. my dr is NOT your dr. *please* talk to your own dr before taking something like this to make sure it is okay for you to take.
3. start using ovation cell therapy.
i had heard about this product, but was a little skeptical. i am now a complete convert and will sing it's praises from the rooftops. ovation is a three step process that includes a shampoo, treatment and a conditioner. they have a holiday set right now that is fantastic and comes with a hair mask and oil that smell divine, plus some other goodies. it really has made a huge difference in my hair and it's also paraben free which is awesome.
so, this is what has worked for me. have you tried anything that has done wonders for your fine/thin hair? if so, dish. this mama needs to know.
