When you wash and style your hair, you want to make sure that you are as delicate with it as possible. This is because thinning hair is sensitive and can be further damaged through even the most seemingly innocent parts of your everyday routine.
You want to avoid heat as often as you can. Heat can dry out follicles and cause them to fall out, exacerbating already-thinning locks. Heat can still be used, but sparingly.
Here are a few ways to style your hair without heat:
- Condition often: The best way to get your hair to cooperate is to condition it on a regular basis. The moisture and hydration will keep your hair from frizzing or acting erratically, so you won't have to resort to heat to tame it. As a bonus, the conditioner will be great for the overall health of your hair.
- Pull it back: When in doubt, you can always comb and pull your hair back into a ponytail. You want to make sure that when you do, however, you keep the knot nice and loose so you don't put any extra pressure on your follicles.
- Use a towel: If you want to straighten your hair, use your towel. Simply dry your hair and wring it out with the towel until it is as straight as you want it to be. This is best done right after you step out of the shower.
