Caring for and styling thin hair can be challenging, especially in the hot and humid summer months. Thin hair tends to frizz easily, especially if it is fine or damaged, and our attempts to shape it up often fall flat. We may try ever-more styling products and conditioners that make bold claims to moisturize, thicken, and smooth our locks, none of which may be good for thin hair.

If you are struggling to plump up your thin hair or add moisture to your dry scalp, the wrong conditioner can make matters worse. To add real volume and breathe a second life into your locks, choose the correct conditioner, and get ready to face the summer sun with confidence.

What Is Thin Hair?

Hair follicles age like other organs in your body: they shrink, and their regenerative abilities decline. Some quit producing hair and may disappear from your scalp altogether — others generate finer or shorter hair than you once had.

Thin Versus Fine Hair

Many people confuse thin and fine hair:

  • Fine hair — is a texture based on the width of your hair shafts: coarse, medium, or fine. Coarse hairs have a thicker shaft diameter, while fine hairs are relatively slim.
  • Thin hair — suggests the number of strands on your head. If you progressively see more and more scalp while styling your hair, you may have thinning hair.

Why Do I Need Conditioner?

If conditioner has left your thin hair flat, greasy, dull, or unmanageable, you may want to drop it from your beauty routine. The right conditioner, however, can provide significant advantages for your thin hair.

Conditioners are more beneficial for your hair biology than you realize. They coat and penetrate your strands to feed your fibers and shield them from damaging elements like heat, UV rays, and pollution. Using the right conditioner can leave your hair:

  • Detangled
  • Softer
  • Pliant
  • Less frizzy
  • With better moisture retention
  • Protected from breakage
  • With less color fading

Skipping your conditioner can leave your locks unprotected and undernourished.

Choice Conditioners for Your Thin Hair

There are many causes of thin hair; however, the biggest offender for aging women is menopause. This mid-life interruption triggers hormonal changes that rob moisture from your follicles and sap strength from your once-alluring locks. Despite this, there are quality conditioners available to counteract this disagreeable reality,

Whether you are trying to add volume or moisture to your thin hair, here are choices that can help:

Bulk Your Body with Wake Up Call Volumizing Conditioner

Volumizing conditioner is a hair care product commonly used by people with limp, fine, or curly hair to increase their hair body. Women with thin hair want a conditioner to manage their hair and give it a boost, but not weigh it down. If you are serious about volumizing your thin hair, try the featherweight Better Not Younger’s Wake Up Call Volumizing Conditioner, formulated to bring your thin hair life and luster with dynamic ingredients including:

  • Hops extract — Hops nourishes and elevates your hair’s strength, sheen, and thickness with its powerful antioxidant-rich oil.
  • Oleanic acid — The production of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) increases following menopause. Oleanic acid, a botanical extract found in garlic, apple, and olive oil, may promote hair growth by inhibiting DHT.

  • Rice bran protein — This amino-acid-rich protein derived from rice’s outer layer strengthens and volumizes your hair.
  • Ceramide-NG — Ceramide-NG is a fatty acid that attracts and retains moisture and seals your cuticles, protecting your strands from harm.
