If you’re noticing a few extra hairs in the plughole, don’t panic. Here are the styling tips, tricks, and products you need to make the most of your thinning hair.
The struggle is real
While you don’t literally feel your hair falling out, the pain is real. The emotional impact hits hard and it isn’t always vanity that grips you; it can feel like your body is failing you. It rocks your self-confidence and the impacts can ripple across your social life as well as your career.
And you are not alone. Approximately twenty five percent of men who suffer with male pattern baldness begin the painful process before they reach the age of twenty-one.
Androgenetic alopecia or common male pattern baldness (MPB) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men according to the American Hair Loss Association.
Shockingly, by the age of thirty-five two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss and by the age of fifty approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.There is hope! Your strands are in good hands
There can be many reasons for your hair loss, heredity, medications, diet, and even stress. A conversation with your stylist will help you get on the right track. Between a customized haircut for your thinning hair, products like Aveda’s Invati, lifestyle changes or perhaps a combination of them all, you will find your individual solution.

This doesn’t have to be a radical change, in fact very simple modifications to cut can make a tremendous difference.
Depending on whether you are thinning from the front or from the crown your stylist can make subtle changes that will improve the look of your hair.
You may be thinning in the front and feel you want to wear it longer around the back and sides but this can end up emphasizing the discrepancy in thickness and draw attention to the thinning areas.
Shorter and texturized hair will give the appearance of thicker hair and bring your hair into better balance with the areas that are thinning. Matching the texture of your hair across your scalp will de-emphasize the thinner areas.
Finishing product can also add texture and give the appearance of thicker hair. Keeping your hair off your scalp will make it appear fuller.
Just remember, anything longer than a few inches is going to make thinning hair look even thinner. Shorter is always better.
