Thinning hair occurs when the follicle structure in your scalp becomes less dense, i.e. you experience gradual, mild to moderate hair loss. Hair also often becomes finer as we age which can contribute to the perception of "thinning" hair. Thinning hair can be caused by a multitude of factors from genetics to lifestyle habits to medical conditions to over-treating your hair with color treatments, perms, or relaxers. Male hair loss is caused by DHT, a hormone that can cause hair follicles to shrink until they become dysfunctional.
The truth is that most of what causes hair loss is happening within your body and not when your hair grows out of your scalp. Thus, if you are experiencing permanent hair loss, make sure to seek advice from your health care provider early. External hair care products can, however, play a supporting role as they can help gently stimulate your scalp and provide relief for some scalp conditions that contribute to thinning hair such as flakes and scalp irritation.
If you are experiencing thinning hair, we recommend our “maroon” line that was formulated for thinning/aging hair to nourish your hair without over-conditioning it (as that can weigh down your hair) and to help stimulate your scalp. If you are concerned with thinning hair and are also experiencing flakes and itches on your scalp, go with our “blue” shampoo for flakes/itches and our conditioner bar for thinning hair.
