Hair Solutions: Caring for Thinning Hair

Celebrity stylist and grooming expert Thom Priano of The GARREN New York Salon has worked with the world’s top photographers, fashion companies and magazines to create the most stylish looks for male and female celebrities from the worlds of Hollywood, sports, music and fashion.

“I see hair loss in my salon every day,” says Priano. “When a woman first starts to notice hair loss, the experience is incredibly emotional. Hair is a woman’s crowning glory -- but unlike men, women don’t expect to lose their hair,” says Priano.

“The first thing I tell the client is that she’s not alone. In fact, one in four women experience hereditary hair loss -- and by age forty, 40% of women show some degree of thinning hair,” he adds.

An expert in women’s styling and treating thinning hair, Priano offers the following advice to his female clients with thinning hair / hair loss:

By the time most women notice thinning hair, they have already lost at least 50% of their hair. “It’s important to seek treatment as soon as you notice the first signs of hair loss, such as more hair on your brush, pillowcase, or in the bathroom drain.”

Choosing The Right Products:

Women's Hair Regrowth Treament

“For my clients with hair loss, I suggest Women’s ROGAINE,” says Priano. It’s the only brand FDA-approved to regrow hair in women. “If you have thinning hair, there are many hair care and styling products that really help make hair appear thicker. Look for anything with a "V" that adds VOLUME to the hair (shampoo, conditioner, gel, mousse, cream, or spray),” says Priano.

Choosing The Right Cut:
“There are different ways to cut and style your hair to help it appear thicker,” says Priano. Layered cuts can add volume to your hair -- whether it’s curly, wavy or straight. Stick with minimal layers, rather than heavy ones that can look flat. Consider cutting deep bangs to help mask thinning hair on the top of the head. Also, try a zig-zag part and a “messy” style.

Hair Color Helps:
“Hair color can also play a big part in masking hair loss,” says Priano. “Darker shades play up the contrast between hair and scalp, while lighter shades that are closer to your skin tone can actually help camouflage thinning hair,” adds Priano, who recommends highlights. “Coloring your mane also expands the hair shaft which makes hair appear thicker,” says Priano.

DDF Sulfur Therapeutic Mask

DDF Sulfur Therapeutic Mask is a clay mask or spot treatment with sulfur and purified clays to absorb oil and help keep pores clear. This therapeutic, medicated mask uses the anti-inflammatory properties of sulfur, aloe vera, purified clay, and aromatic extracts. Helps to clear blemishes and treat oily skin, clogged pores, acne, and seborrhea. Only $38, not only can you use this as a mask, but you can also use it as spot treatment. Ideal for acne prone skin, this mask will minimize the appearance of the pores. Excellent for chest and back as well as face.

You should not use this Therapeutic Mask more than once a week if you have normal skin, and shouldn't use it at all if you have extremely dry skin.

We recommend applying the mask onto your face and allow it dry completely (about 15 mins), then wash it off in the shower. Your face might retain the sulfur smell before you go out somewhere, unless its washed off thoroughly. After each use, be sure to properly moisturize your face. This is an excellent product - considering the benefits and price.
