My hair is fine to begin with but has been getting much thinner in the last 2/3 years that I have noticed it and maybe that is mostly caused by age (42), but I am wondering what I can do to change that - is there certain vitamins/foods that are recommended? I do not think its at the stage for medical treatment but I just want my hair healthy and to be thicker - it seems like I lose a lot more hair then grows back!! I have used Nioxin hair Products for Fine, chemically enhanced hair but not on a constant basis. I would like to know are they one of the top products to use for thinning hair or is there something better on the market? Are there any consumer reports on Nioxin products?

I have found that professional hair loss products provide great results but I would suggest that you keep using the product. Most of my fellow professional hairstylist do recommend professional products and have had great results on their clients.

My hair is exceptionally thick, falls in loose spirals, and comes down to the middle of my shoulder blades. I have been growing my hair out for the past couple of years, and I never had a problem with frizz until my hair approached shoulder length.
I immediately started using moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, letting my hair air dry, and shampooing every other day instead of daily, but it has only been getting worse. I tried a ridiculous number of hair products to see if I could style away the frizz, but the only thing that worked 100% was to straighten my hair.
I have since found some products I am happy with, but they are not able to control the frizz completely. I use Frizz-Ease shampoo and conditioner for curly hair, a deep conditioner as needed, and Frizz-Ease volume reducer for control. I do not care for serums, but I use them if I am going to be in the sun for a while.
I really do not want to straighten my hair or cut it shorter, so what can I do?

I would suggest using a clarifying shampoo and removing all product build up and starting form scratch. Check that the anti frizz products you are using do not contain silicone as this can cause the product build up. The use good moisturizing shampoos and conditioners that contain humectants such as coconut oil. And use a good moisturizing styling lotion to keep the curls defined

I do not use colourants of any kind on my hair. I had a hairdresser at the house to put my long but fine hair up for a wedding. I had it washed and conditioned ready using my usual products. Just before leaving for the wedding I noticed an unusual smell from my hair much like perming solution or peroxide and there was a tinge of gold almost green in my hair. The next day I washed my hair and the smell was worse and my hair very dry and damaged. The hairdresser said she had not used anything but hairspray on my hair. I was wondering what could have caused my hair to be like this. My daughter who used to be a hairdresser has cut my hair for me says that something has been put on my hair to damage it so much. Can you please help Thank you

Dear Ann, yes this seems very unusual as it sounds like a chemical reaction has occurred causing the hair to become dry ! I can only guess that she may have used a styling product or hair spray that reacted with your products. The reaction will have caused the hair to lift slightly .Do you swim a lot? Build up of chlorine on your hair could react. Do you use a coloured shampoo or henna products as may also react. I suggest deep conditioning and regular cutting to remove the damaged hair.
