Hair loss can be a disheartening experience, and approximately 50% of women will experience hair loss by the age of 50, according to the American Hair Research Society. However, there are options for those wanting to disguise thinning hair.
There are several hair fillers for thinning hair that can help to add volume and fullness to specific areas. Here’s what clients need to know when considering using hair fillers.
Hair Fillers Are Not One Size Fits All
There is not one solution that works for everyone experiencing thin hair. Many salons offer hair fillers, created by applying individual layers of hair, using a strand-by-strand method. This allows hair stylists to add depth and volume in the specific areas a client is experiencing thinning, such as the temple, nape or crown.
Those considering hair fillers for thinning hair should select a salon that creates fillers that are completely customized for the client and made-to-order.
Not All Hair Extensions Are Good for Thinning Hair
There are several forms of hair extensions, including clip-ins, weave and fusion. However, it’s important to note that not all types are good for thin hair. The best form of hair extensions for clients battling thinning hair are tape-in extensions.
Tape-in extensions are applied by a professional hair stylist, who use a special type of tape to adhere two-inch wefts of hair extensions to client’s natural hair. These are the best type of hair extensions for thinning hair, since they are lightweight, thin, and do not require the use of harmful chemicals or products to apply.
Hair Building Fibers
Another option for those facing thinning hair are hair-building fibers. These can change the texture of existing hair and cover thin spots. They work by tapping onto the scalp and clinging to the client’s individual hair strands. This application technique helps to build thickness and create fuller looking hair. They stay in place all day and can be easily washed out with shampoo.
Clients looking to address fine or thinning hair caused by age, genetics or damage can use any of these methods to help enhance existing hair and create a thicker looking hairstyle.
