Shampooing 101: How to Choose a Shampoo for Thin Hair

How to Choose a Shampoo for Thin Hair

Everyone has different hair types whether it is curly, wavy, thick, thin or straight and there are plenty of different products to fit your hair needs and goals. 

If you have thin hair you may want to consider buying a certain shampoo specifically formulated for your hair. Thin hair is nothing to be ashamed of and can be maintained as good as any other hair type. 

Hair thinning can be caused by many different factors and knowing what’s in your shampoo will help you to eliminate that.  

Keep reading for tips on how to pick out a good shampoo for thin hair.

Volumizing Shampoos

You can get a shampoo specifically geared towards creating volume for your hair in just about any brand. Just note that all volumizing shampoo is not created equally.

You will want to avoid shampoos with retinyl palmitate because this could cause skin irritation such as peeling or scaly skin. One thing you will want to avoid is itching your scalp throughout the day. Touching your hair too much can promote fall out. 

When deciding on a volumizing shampoo, look for a shampoo that has vitamins and minerals aimed at straightening your hair. You will also want to make sure that when choosing a scented shampoo that they used a natural fragrance.

It may even be more beneficial to choose an unscented shampoo. Tricovel is a great band to look into for making your hair look and feel thicker.

Avoid Sulfates and Parabens

You will want to avoid sulfates and parabens in your shampoos and look for a shampoo that specifically states it is sulfate and paraben free. Some organic shampoos may seem like they would follow these rules but remember to read all of the ingredients before using organic shampoo. 

Sulfates destroy hair follicles and inhibit the growth of your hair. Meaning you will especially want to avoid sulfates if your hair is already thin.  

Having moisturized hair will help fight against split ends and breakage. Sulfate and paraben free shampoos help to lock the moisture into your hair. 

Try a Thickening Shampoo

Another type of shampoo you can try for thin hair is one that will help to thicken your hair. You will need a shampoo that reduces shedding and helps your hair to grow.

A thickening shampoo should help your hair look fuller and actually make it become thicker as well.

The best way to pick a thickening shampoo that may actually work for you is to read the reviews from other customers that you can find online. You may find someone in a similar situation as you and hopefully can use their advice on whether to buy a product or not. 

Tricovel Shampoo for Hair Loss

Tricovel’s fortifying shampoo is another great way to accomplish thicker hair. This shampoo has B5 in it which helps to nourish and promote thicker healthier looking hair. It also helps to give it a shine and make it feel soft to the touch. 

Tricovel’s unique formula helps to protect your hair from heat and styling damage so you don’t have to worry. You can use Tricovel’s fortifying shampoo every day! Apply the shampoo to wet hair, massage it throughout and then rinse after 2-3 minutes.  

Read the Ingredients

When it comes to buying shampoos there are certain ingredients you will want and others you do not want in your shampoo. Look for shampoos that have vitamin B which can help hold moisture into your hair and strengthen it.

A good choice would be shampoo with a slightly acidic level. If the shampoo is between four and six on the pH scale it will help add volume to your hair. 

Most shampoos do contain alcohol even if you may not realize it. There are quite a few alcohols that are good for your skin and hair such as Cetearyl and stearyl which can help increase moisture. But on the other hand, some alcohols can dry your hair out. 

You should avoid sodium chloride in your shampoos. As you can probably infer sodium chloride deals with salt which can irritate or dry your scalp.

Dimethicone is used in shampoos to make your hair appear to be shiny. But you do not want to use this ingredient in your shampoo because it can actually weigh your hair down a lot. It acts like a plastic coating over each strand of hair which can increase build up and keep away healthy nutrients and moisture from your hair.  

Use a Treatment

Hair Growth Vials

Another great way to get thicker hair is to use a treatment for your hair. Tricovel vials should be used every 3 days when hair feels dull, thin or weak. The vials are a topical option to disperse Biogenina throughout your hair.

Biogenina helps to improve your hair overall and combats thinning. This treatment will not leave your hair oily or weigh it down. The product gradually releases over three days and does not rinse out when washing your hair. 

Don’t Forget to Condition

We’ve discussed the right types of shampoo to use if you have thin hair, but don’t forget to follow it up with conditioner. The conditioner works to moisturize your hair and fights against the dryness caused by some shampoos. 

Most brands have a conditioner that goes along with your shampoo so you should definitely utilize this two-step process. Conditioners are also loaded with lots of good vitamins and benefits so don’t skip this step. 

Apply the conditioner to the ends of your hair avoiding your scalp. You should leave the conditioner on your hair for about two minutes. This will help to create a protective layer on your hair that can fight to keep your hair growing strong and prevent easy breakage. 

But make sure not to use more than a palm size dollop because too much conditioner can weigh your hair down. For people with thin hair, it can make your hair seem oily and flat. 

Finding the Best Shampoo for Thin Hair

Overall, there are many factors that can contribute to the thickness of your hair. If you feel that your hair is unusual, then you should look into your stress levels, general health, nutrition, thyroid hormone levels or your genes to determine what is going on. 

There isn’t going to be one treatment that helps everyone. You may have to go through a lot of trial and error before you find the best shampoo for thin hair that works for you.

Remember to read the reviews on products before you buy them so you can save time and money. Being consistent is key. Don’t give up after the first wash if you do not see a huge difference.
