Causes For Decreasing Hair Density

Hair density is the number of hair strands present on your head per square inch of the scalp. Hair texture is the quality of those hair strands. When you lose more than 100 strands of hair a day, then hair density starts decreasing rapidly. Due to various factors, hair density tends to decrease over time. Some of them are-

  • Poor diet

This can adversely affect your hair and skin health. What goes inside your body is reflected on your hair. Consuming unhealthy food can increase hair fall and decrease hair volume.

  • Genetics

Genes can also play a major role in decreasing hair density. Some people tend to have a gradual decrease in hair density. Male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness are two examples of hereditary diseases where there is thinning and loss of hair.

  • Stress

Stress is another major reason for hair fall.

  • Lack of taking proper hair care

Taking care of your hair is also vital to maintain hair density and thickness. Use of correct products and techniques can prevent hair breakage.

Tips To Increase Hair Density And Thickness

  1. Wet hair is most vulnerable to hair breakage due to combing, tugging or brushing. It is always advisable to avoid styling or combing your hair when it is wet. Let your hair dry before de-tangling those strands.
  2. There are various products available in the market which has volume boosting chemicals added to them. You can use volume enhancing hair products for an instant result. However, different hair type means different products will work on them. So it is always better to consult a dermatologist regarding the use of such products on your hair.
  3. Diet rich in protein, iron, folic acid, Vitamin D, zinc and iron are known for increasing hair density and improving hair thickness. It is always better to have a balanced nutritious diet.
  4. Make sure to massage your scalp as frequently as possible to increase hair density. With frequent head massages, the blood circulation increases which provides essential nutrients to your hair strands and make them thick.
  5. Avoid trying various brands of products on your scalp. You should also avoid styling your hair with hot irons. These can cause hair damage and lead to hair breakage. Hair colouring also damages your hair and makes it lifeless.
  6. Always wash your hair gently with your fingers. Don’t scrub them too hard.
