If You Have Fine Hair
Fine hair refers to the diameter of the hair shaft. Coarse hair has a thicker diameter and fine hair has a smaller diameter. Fine hair is more delicate and can be prone to breakage if not properly cared for.
Women with fine hair tend to look for products that can make hair appear thicker, fuller and add body without weighing it down.
If You Have Thin Hair
Thin hair is low-density hair; hair density is the measurement of how densely packed hair is on the scalp. Because low density means less hair, there is a noticeable difference when hair loss occurs. The best products for thinning hair create volume and lift without weighing down hair. Women with thin hair should seek gentle products that protect the hair they have while enhancing volume and creating fullness.
Due to the delicate nature of fine and/or thin hair, INTACT is the ideal thinning hair treatment for women providing and styling while giving a volume boost at the root for fuller-looking hair.
Solutions for Thinning Hair
Follow these thinning hair solutions to be kind and gentle to fine & thin hair – while avoiding excessive hair shedding.
1. Use INTACT on days you wash
your hair to help protect your delicate hair from washing, towel-drying, brushing, blow-drying, styling, etc.
2. Use a micro-fiber towel
to gently absorb water and squeeze water from hair rather than rub your head and hair which agitates the cuticle. This will help reduce hair shedding and breakage.
3. Use a wide tooth comb
for medium to long hair to detangle gently. Start at the ends of hair and move up the hair shaft. Don’t rip through hair, as this will cause hair pull, hair shedding and breakage. Fine hair is also more prone to tangling. If hair is extremely tangled / hard to comb through, use INTACT as a deep conditioning treatment from root to ends. It won’t coat the hair with residue which will help the hair detangle easier.
4. Let hair air dry if possible.
If not, use a low heat or cool setting and boar bristle brush to gently brush through as you blow dry hair. Dividing hair into smaller sections as you dry can help minimize hair pull.
5. Sleep on a silk pillow at night
to reduce friction and excessive hair shedding.
Hair Shedding or Hair Loss
What’s the Difference?
Due to the multitude of factors that may contribute to hair loss and the many kinds of hair loss conditions, it can be overwhelming to understand this complex issue. Even understanding the difference between hair shedding and hair loss can be difficult as this terminology is often used interchangeably. Let’s take a closer look at how they do indeed differ.
Normal hair shedding is considered 50-150 strands a day. At times, and due to certain life changes or practices, we may experience more hair fall. When the body sheds hair excessively, this is called Telogen Effluvium. Typically, this type of hair shedding is temporary and can be resolved once the cause is addressed. Hair will go back to its normal growth cycle in 6-9 months.
Hair Shedding Triggers
• Acute stress
• Sickness with high fever
• Giving birth
• Rapid weight loss / crash dieting
• Having an operation
Hair loss on the other hand is when hair stops growing. This type of hair loss is called Anagen Effluvium. Hereditary hair loss, auto-immune disorders and drugs, medical treatments or certain health disorders will trigger anagen effluvium. A dermatologist can help you determine if you have hair loss or excessive hair shedding and can put you on the right path to resolving your condition.
Hair Loss Triggers
• Genetic hair loss, called Female Pattern Hair Loss
• Immune disorders
• Permanent Traction Alopecia
• Trichotillomania – disorder where one pulls their own hair out
• Chemotherapy-induced alopecia
