  If you don’t need to don’t wash your hair every day. Washing your hair less frequently will help hair’s natural oils to build up and moisturize your scalp. When you use shampoo, use products that are specially formulated for thin hair, like for example baby formulas. Read some small print and find those shampoos that say ‘fragrance free’, because fragrances can be irritants. As well you want to get ones that are labeled as ‘hyoallergenic’. As well avoid products with sodium lauryl sulfate, which is a very a harsh detergent.

  Also, never forget to use conditioner because it will help soothing and hydrating the scalp. You can go for deep conditioning or hot oil treatment, which will do a lasting good for your scalp.

  Good news is, your hair has a strong natural ability to regrow itself. Your scalp is home to about 100,000 hairs. Each one has its own life cycle. A follicle produces a single hair that grows at a rate of half an inch per month. It hangs in there for 2 to 6 years, then stops for about a month. When the next cycle starts up, that hair falls out. At any given time, most of your locks are in the growth phase.
