Thinning Hair Solutions
I am like those of you who have experinced hair loss or thinning. I always had a beautifukl, thick head of hair but the last few years my hairline is thinner and I cannot create the styles on myself I used to, without help.
If the thinning or loss is not caused by a medical or inherited conditon, there is help.
I have been an extension technician since 2002. While most of my years have been creating luxurious long hair, as my clients went into the 40s and 50s and now into thier 60's, their hair changed. Without a good base to apply extensions the technique had to change. Where I had always loved and preferred the strand by strandd method, it was apparent the tapes or apps were much better for creating the look my clients wanted. Apps build density better than the strand by strand method which on thin hair, can look stringy.,
As my hair started to thin I began playing with them, not to freate length but to fill in thiose thin spots. Ihave always worn my hair short and spikey , messy. It was difficult to do, no matter what products I used because I can't plump up what doesn't exist.
I used the shortest app Great lengths extensions and applied them around my face where3 I am thin. What a difference. The amazing Great Lengths come in pieces that look like your natural hair is growing, It takes a very small bit of hair to cover these up. i
Cost ranges according to how many apps are applied. I have five in my hair. That would be $100 plus cut and style. Maintenance is every four weeks ( just like your cut and color) and is $10 per app. So for me it would be $50 a month maintencance on top of my regular monthly hair care.
Above is a picture of me. Trust me those great thick fringes around my face are not my hair. Those are the Great Lengths Apps. As we age we have to learn to embrace the changes and be willing to look at ways to enhance. I love my life. I trust each day that God will bless my life with continued wonderful people and allow me to help others.
PRODUCTS THAT MAY HELP ( From Allure Magazine)
1. Minoxidil. It’s the only FDA-approved topical nonprescription medication that can claim to regrow hair — and it should be part of any hair-loss plan if you have serious thinning. Minoxidil has loads of research to back it, but it requires commitment. If you quit using it, your hair will start to lose ground again. Use a 5 percent strength. Never use the Minoxidil for men. There is a major difference and can cause issues on women.
