In this post Nino Milano Studio team discuss thin hair and share tips and tricks on ways to give it more body and volume. So don’t worry, our team have lots of suggestions and ideas to help you.
The various causes of thinning hair
There are many reasons why your hair may be thinning, including over-processing your hair, stress, using the wrong products for your hair type and, of course, medical conditions like alopecia. Indeed, various medications can also affect hormone levels and affect hair growth. Some thyroid medications, anti-anxiety pills and birth control tablets are thought to have an effect on hair thinning. Age is also a factor of course. As we get older our hair looks thinner for two reasons – we produce, less hairs and the hair strands themselves get thinner.
But there’s good news too…there’s lots you can do to create thicker hair.
Use highlights to create texture to your hair
Carefully placed highlights create texture and to your hair, which gives a fuller look compared with a single toned style. We can advise you on the highlights that will work well to achieve the result you want.
Colour the root to create the remedy
Another way to create the illusion of hair thickness is to colour your roots a slightly darker colour than the rest of your hair. This needs to be done professionally though as the technique to get it right is a specialist one.
The colour won’t thicken your hair but creates an optical illusion as the eye is drawn to other areas of your hair.

The days are getting longer and there’s a trace of sunshine in the sky; the breeze is less biting. Yes, spring is here! Why not shake off the winter blues by getting your tresses in order?!
Switch Your Shampoo
Spring clean your hair by finding the right shampoo for your hair type (the same goes for your conditioner!). For a gentler cleanse, consider switching to a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner – especially if your hair is feeling dry. Because they’re free from sulfates (the chemical cleansing agents in shampoo that cause suds), sulfate-free shampoos don’t strip the hair of its nourishing natural oils.
Give Your Scalp Some TLC
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Dirt, oil and styling products build up on the scalp, which can lead to irritation and dandruff. At the very least, buildup leaves hair looking dull; over time though, scalp buildup clogs hair follicles, causing hair thinning or even hair loss. Well, to keep your scalp healthy, you should periodically exfoliate it as well. Use a scalp scrub or brush to slough away any buildup, and wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo once monthly.
Hydrate Your Hair
If your hair is feeling really dry and brittle, nourish it with a daily dose of moisture. Apply a lightweight oil or cream from the mid-lengths to the tips in-between washes.
And whenever you do wash your hair, try not to use heated styling tools; if you can get away with letting your hair air dry, then do it. If you do need to use the hairdryer, turn the temperature down.
Refresh Your Colour
One of the best ways to lift your look is by freshening up your hair colour, whatever your shade. The spring and summer months are a great time to experiment with lighter hair colours or highlights, especially if you want to complement a sun-kissed complexion. Speak to your stylist about the hair colour trends we’re seeing this year if you’re struggling to settle on the right hue for you, or check out more of our blogs!
Get a Trim
Whether you fancy a whole new hairstyle or just need your ends tidying up, head to the salon for a seasonal trim.
When you get a split end, it heads further and further up the hair shaft; the only way to fix broken ends is to snip them off. If you don’t want to lose much length, ask your stylist to ‘dust’ the hair instead.
