Thousands of men and women will experience thinning hair at some point in their life. Thinning hair is not life threatening, but it definitely can be embarrassing and affect your social life and self confidence. There are some quick and easy ways to hide thinning hair without breaking your wallet.

Things You'll Need

Use Toppik to hide the thinning areas instantly. Toppik consists of fibers that are made of keratin protein, the same protein of which your hair is made. The fibers are charged with static electricity, so they blend and bond with your own hair. Sprinkle Toppik on the area where you need to hide your thinning hair. Wait a few minutes, and then comb your hair gently. Style it as you like.

Spray on a hair volumizer for a quick and easy way to hide thinning areas. Apply to your damp hair, then brush it through and use a hair straightener or a curling iron. A volumizer gives lift and keeps your hair in place. Use John Masters Organics’ deep scalp follicle treatment and volumizer, Pureology’s pure volume thickening mist, L’oreal’s volumizer spray or Paul Mitchell Volumizing mousse.

Hide thinning hair with highlights and lowlights. The coloring not only adds style to your hair, but also gives the illusion of thicker and fuller hair, because it adds dimension and depth.

Get a good haircut that suits fine hair. Your hair will probably look best short, with soft layering and a long bang. Layers add volume and texture to your hair.
