Consider a Change of Color

First on my list of ways to hide thinning hair is one relatively easy solution that must have crossed your mind too! As it turns out, darker shades of hair makes thinning more noticeable, which is why hairdressers usually advise a hair color change! Simply go a shade or two (maybe even three if you’re brave) lighter and those areas where your scalp used to kind of peek through won’t be as noticeable as before.


Lightening the hair can create an illusion of volume and density. Highlighting techniques, such as balayage or ombre, add depth and dimension, which can be particularly helpful in disguising areas of concern. Furthermore, adding subtle highlights around your face can draw attention away from the thinning areas. Consider consulting with your hairstylist about the possibility of adding layers of lighter colors; they are skilled in selecting shades that will complement your skin tone and enhance the overall appearance of your hair's thickness. Remember that healthy hair reflects light better, so make sure to nourish your locks with the right products after dyeing.


Layer It

Disguising thinning hair or giving the illusion of volume to thin hair can be achieved with layers as well! Good news in case you’re totally not loving the first suggestion and an even better one if you do! After all, the more options we have out there, the better, plus there is no rule that says you’re allowed to use just one way to add hair volume. Ask your stylist to cut a few more layers, style them then explain how to achieve the same result at home, suggesting a few products and styling techniques for you to use on daily basis.



Although it gives great results, teasing as a popular volume-boosting method probably isn’t what you want to be doing day, after day, after day! No need to risk further thinning, breakage and damage – right, ladies? Why not experiment with other ways to add hair volume such as thickening hair care and styling products? Give it a shot and you might be surprised! Thickening shampoo and conditioner will work wonders on their own, giving you the illusion of at least 20% thicker hair. But, you can also follow up with a root booster, volumizing mousse or powder and crank that volume up even more.



But what if your thinning hair isn’t a result of age or genetics, but a completely reversible damage your hair had sustained through your wig or extension wearing habit or chemical treatments? Well, time to give your hair a break, ladies, and yes – there are ways to hide thinning hair and look absolutely gorgeous in the process! Fold your favorite scarf into a headband or invest (and maybe even design) a few elasticized, quick-slip ones to have on the go and you’ll have a trendy interesting look to experiment with while growing out your edges.


Accessorizing is a great way to draw attention away from thinning hair and look stylish at the same time. Scarves, headbands, and hats can be used to create interesting and fashionable looks. Elasticized headbands are especially convenient as they can be quickly slipped on and off. Hair accessories are also a great way to create volume and add texture to thinning hair. For example, clips, barrettes, and ponytail holders can be used to add a bit of body and lift to the hair. Finally, hats can be used to cover up thinning hair and create a fashionable look.


Add Some Color

Scalp colors are another interesting, highly effective way to hide thinning hair and make those critical patched areas less noticeable. Don’t give up your beloved hair color – get a matching spray-on color instead and achieve that head full of hair at home! You will have to experiment a bit to find the product that works best for you, but once you discover that perfect, non-sticky, non-transferable, long lasting formula, obtaining a flawless hairstyle will be a piece of cake!


Adding color to thinning hair can be an effective way to make those patches less noticeable. There are many options available to choose from, including spray-on colors, temporary colors, and permanent dyes. Spray-on colors are a great way to get a head of full hair without committing to a permanent color. They are non-sticky, non-transferable, and long lasting, making them easy to apply and maintain.

Temporary colors are often used for special occasions, such as a night out or a special event. These colors are easy to use, and they can be washed out after a few days. Permanent dyes are a great option for those who want to add a bit of color to their hair without having to worry about reapplying it. Permanent dyes are long-lasting and can be used to create a variety of shades.

No matter which color you choose, it is important to use products that are specifically designed for thinning hair. Products that are too heavy or sticky can make thinning hair more noticeable. It is also important to use a color that is close to your natural hair color, as this will make the color blend in better.


Get Creative

Speaking about ways to hide thinning hair – here’s a tip that never gets old! Part your hair differently and experiment with hairstyles that can help make those critical areas less noticeable. Not exactly rocket science, I know… but you have to admit good ol’ styling does have its benefits! And with so many hair accessories you can use… who’s to say you won’t even enjoy your new and improved styling habits!


Give Keratin Protein Fibers a Go

Last on my list of tips for disguising thinning hair is something you really must try! Rush to your beauty supply shop and grab a product containing keratin protein fibers! This product basically looks like a powder, but actually contains special protein fibers that attach themselves to your hair making it look thicker, fuller and more voluminous! And crazy as it may sound – this revolutionary product really works magic and, unlike scalp color sprays, won’t run in humid weather!

Are there any other ways to hide thinning hair? Do tell! I’m sure you have your own fool proof way to add hair volume and I hope you’ll be so kind to share it with the rest of us here.

I use pony tail extensions and hair fibers to help with my thin hair. Fast and works wonders. I have frosted hair ...easier to match

My hair started thinning on its own when I was about 19. My secret tip: with shortish-medium length hair, I take a crimper (the kind with the tiny crimps) and use it close to my scalp all the way around my head, but underneath the top layer of hair so the crimps didn't show. I preferred that to teasing, because my hair still felt soft and it didn't require a lot of spray. It worked wonders and made my hair look so much fuller.
