Perhaps you could try a gentle shampoo- something that is SLS free?

Nioxin shampoo and conditioner are fabulous for thinning hair. You can get a kit for a decent price, they have sets for thinning and natural, thinning and colored, etc etc. I think there are 4 diff types. The hair growth foam (comes with kit) is really good too.

One of the main ingredients are the same as in rogaine, and the shampoo has great reviews for regrowing hair.

And try taking biotin. I had lost a ton of hair after having 3 consecutive surgeries for my ankle ๐Ÿ˜” it was falling out like crazy. I started taking biotin gummies (I took 4 a day=5000mg) and in a few months I noticed my hair was growing back. I had TONS of new regrowth, around my hairline I had so many new hair’s, crazy. It really helps.

All natural shampoo bars have really thickened my hair. The downside is that there’s an adjustment period where your hair will probably be even worse. But since then, my hair as been thicker  (it was already thick so now it’s almost unmanageable) and I can go so many days between washes without it getting oily.

I’m following too! I have to declogg the bath drain after every shower I get a Palm full of hair every time and after I’ve brushed it I get another palm full. I’m taking 10,000mg of biotin every day for 6 months but it’s made no difference. I’m at my wits end. I’m from the uk.

I don’t have this problem but I am a big fan of Klorane shampoo and a friend reports that their quinine and vitamin b formula for thinning hair works wonder!

Wash less (or not at all – look up “no poo method”) and skip the conditioner. If you must use a tiny drop on just the ends.

I don’t really understand how shampoo or conditioner, which only touch your scalp for a few moments, can address thinning, can anyone explain?

OP, is the thinning due to more frequent breakage, a change in texture, more hairs falling out, or fewer new hairs growing? Or a combination? I ask because volumizing products could help with texture, and thinning from damage can be fixed by gentler handling, but thinning from reduced growth/increased shedding could be hormonal, or diet- or health-related, and might require speaking to a doctor.

I agree that thinning hair could indicative of medical related issues and/or diet.  As for shampoo/conditioner I have tried and really like Bumble and Bumble Thickening products.

Whatever you do, avoid Monat products!  They claim great success reversing hair loss, but horror stories and lawsuits abound.
