Thinning hair, it’s definitely not something that women like to talk about. The truth is, it happens. I have family members who have struggled with this issue for most of their teen and adult life and I know how it makes them feel.
Hair Thinning is Not Uncommon
In women, Hereditary Hair Loss is the most common cause of hair loss, accounting for 90% of cases. It is a genetic condition stemming from either the mother or father’s side of the family and is commonly recognized by women in their 30s as a “diffuse” thinning over the top of the head and along the part.
Know the early signs:
- Thinning Hair – hair loses volume and density over time
- Hair Shedding – increased hair accumulation in shower, pillow, and hair brush. Most people lose between 50-100 hairs a day, which is considered normal hair loss; a consistent loss of 150 hairs a day is considered significant hair loss. If hair loss is sudden or patchy, consult a medical professional.
- Widening part or visible scalp – increased scalp visibility is a definite sign of hair loss

Great Styling Tips
Not quite sure how to style your hair, here are some tips from from Celebrity Stylist Jill Crosby!
Talk about thinning hair with your stylist
Jill Crosby: “Don’t be afraid to bring up any hair concerns with your stylist! We’ve heard it all – especially when it comes to thinning hair – and we’ll help you navigate the journey to hair regrowth. I personally recommend Women’s Rogaine® 5% Minoxidil Foam to my clients as an easy, over-the-counter product that works.”
Embrace styling tools!
Jill Crosby: “You can use all of the same tools and techniques, just with less heat and less tension. The key here is gentle. Ask your salon stylist to ease up on the heat and tension, and use a light touch with towels and hairbrushes at home.”
Grab the curling iron and add some bouncy curls, or even add some holiday ribbon for some added color, depth and style!
Switch up your part
Jill Crosby: “Experiment with flipping your part to the opposite side. By adding a little texture spray to the roots you can get a new voluminous flip started. Or try a look without a defined part – sometimes with fine hair parts can expose too much scalp.”
LOB it off
Jill Crosby: “For most people shorter haircuts will create the illusion of volume, whereas the longer hair gets the more it weighs itself down and looks even thinner.” An example of this would be the super on-trend “Lob” which is a longer version of the bob cut.
