7 Hairstyle Tips for Guys With Thinning Hair

hairstyle tips for guys with thinning hair shampoo

It’s not uncommon for fine hair to look greasy soon after a wash, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you have oily hair. “Many times, your body produces more oil because your scalp is too dry,” Friedman says. Use caution with dry/damaged hair products as well. Using a shampoo for dry hair for too long will have the opposite effect. “It may work great at first, but after a month or so, you’ll have an overabundance of protein in your hair, and too much protein will cause hair to break,” Friedman says. The best and easiest way to find out what hair type you have is to ask your stylist.

Thinning hair is often a precursor to a larger problem — male pattern baldness. Basic shampoos don’t address the issue. And the hormone DHT is to blame. According to the American Hair Loss Association, DHT shrinks hair follicles, making it impossible for healthy hair to survive. For this, you need a DHT-blocking shampoo. Friedman recommends Nioxin.
