From cutting and curling to straightening and styling, most of us use our hair as a way to showcase our own individual style. It’s an expression of our personality, from the colour we choose to the way in which we wear it. But, as much as a good hair day can make us feel full of confidence, losing our locks can unfortunately do the exact opposite, leaving us lacking in self-esteem and feeling anxious. 

Not to worry, though, as there is plenty you can do to bolster thin, limp locks and fight the effects of hair loss…

What Causes Thinning Hair?

Much to some people’s surprise, hair loss is an everyday occurrence and we actually lose up to 60 hairs a day – however, it’s when this number increases that you can notice excess hair in your brush and the worrying signs of thinning.  So, what is it that causes hair to become thinner over time? Firstly, and one of the bigger factors, is that for many women hair loss begins around the time of menopause, when the female hormone (estrogen) decreases and the male hormone (testosterone) increases. That’s not the only reason for hair loss, though, and other factors such as stress, dieting and medication side effects can all play a part.

What Should You Look For?

You’re likely to notice hair loss by the fact your hair feels thinner, and also the amount that you’ll find in your hairbrush after styling. You may also notice a receding hairline and thinner hair around your parting, along with less volume in your tresses overall. The good news is that there are some great products out there to help combat thinning hair, such as Plantur39.

Plantur39 is designed specifically for those that suffer from menopausal hair loss or are looking to prevent it. Its formula is based on years of research, with its products all engineered.

If you’re ready to start making a difference, then we’d suggest upgrading your shampoo to Plantur39 Phyto-Caffeine Shampoo, for coloured and stressed hair. Its unique Phyto-Caffeine Complex formula is a clever cocktail of caffeine mixed with active botanical substances, zinc, niacin, wheat protein and white tea extract. Leave it in for just two minutes and you’ll be well on your way to fuller, silkier hair that’s high on shine.

Don’t want to wash your hair every day? Then try Plantur39 Phyto-Caffeine Tonic, a leave-in treatment that works by being massaged directly onto the scalp, before your hair is styled as normal.
