I’ve always had fine hair.
As a teenager I would read hair tips in Just Seventeen magazine and spend ages lying on my bed with my head hung backwards over the age, trying to encourage blood to flow to my scalp. At the same time I’d be reading the problem pages and looking at the ‘Position of the Fortnight’ in More and wondering what it would be like to actually have sex with another person. Like how would you even go about it? You’d have to actually talk properly to a boy for a start. I couldn’t get my head around it, hung upside down or otherwise.
(Funnily enough, not long after I drafted this post I found myself talking to some women about More and Position of the Fortnight. How is that feature the only thing people ever remember from the whole magazine?)
Over 25 years later and I do less of the head dangling, although I do still wonder sometimes about how to talk to (now grown up) boys, and my hair is still just as fine. In fact, if anything I probably have even less of it now, what with the impending *whispers* menopause. Hopefully I have few years yet, but I’ve definitely noticed my hair getting dryer, so it’s probably only a matter of time before it starts thinning too.
(Yay! Life is so kind.)
Fortunately there may be something that can ease the thinning hair crisis at least, if not help with the men thing – a new naturally-derived haircare range called Thicker Fuller Hair™. Clue’s in the name with this one isn’t it? While I can’t afford a personal stylist waving products and a professional hair dryer at me every morning, this is the next best thing.
If you have thin hair, or are worried about hair loss, you’re not alone.
The number of women experiencing hair loss or thinning hair is actually really high, and despite what you might think, it’s not just about age. 34 is the peak age for hair loss, due to stress, diet and hormone changes. Even so, it’s not something that’s easy to talk about. Although 69% of UK women worry about hair loss and 66% say it makes them feel self-conscious, 68% of women believe it is a taboo subject that they don’t talk to anyone about.
Let’s change that shall we? I’m happy to speak out and say that thinning hair is definitely something I worry about, and I know that the state of my hair can change when I feel under pressure, or am not looking after myself as well as I could be.
Check out my stylish post-shower selfie and see how the light reflects nicely off my scalp:
Thicker Fuller Hair™ is a complete, four step system made up of a shampoo, conditioner, serum and scalp tonic. It’s 100% vegan, SLS free, and is all about cleansing, feeding and repairing hair from scalp to tip. It contains natural ingredients like organic quinoa, baobab and pea sprout, and is designed to provide support to thinning hair, whether that’s caused by age, stress, medication, hormones – whatever the reason.
According to research, 71% of UK women want a more natural solution rather than harsh, synthetic solutions that cause irritation – these products tick that box.
I’ve been using the Thicker Fuller Hair™ range now for a few weeks. It’s difficult for me to say exactly what the effect has been, as it’s pretty subjective at this stage AND I started using it at about the same time as I had all of my hair cut off, which has definitely helped with the ‘not looking like I have about three strands of hair’ thing.
What I can say for sure for now at least is that the Thicker Fuller Hair™ range is lovely to use, and leaves my hair feeling soft and in really good condition. You can feel the quality, and you get that nice feeling of knowing you’re using products with natural ingredients, designed to to heal and care for your hair, rather than just stripping it or coating it with something.
The four step system starts in the shower with shampoo and conditioner:
The directions say to massage the shampoo into your scalp for 1-3 minutes, which definitely took me back to my Just Seventeen days. One of the key elements of the range though is cleansing the scalp, not just washing your hair, so working the shampoo in thoroughly is an important step.
Then it’s on with the conditioner for a few minutes, a little sing song if you feel like it, rinse and then jump out of the shower, ready for the second half of the routine.
The next steps are the scalp tonic and the serum, both vegan, both designed to provide a natural, caring solution to hair loss and to nourish your hair from the roots to the tips.
My favourite product, which I’ve noticed makes an immediate difference to how thick my hair feels, is the serum. I just use one squirt of it, but on the days when I forget, I can definitely notice the difference in the texture and manageability of my hair.
I’m not really very good at hair STYLING, but once I’ve worked the tonic and serum through my towel-dried hair I just give it a blast upside down with the hairdryer and bob’s your uncle. My hair feels super soft and manageable, and definitely feels like it has a good amount of bounce and body. The volume lasts all day too, it’s not one of these ‘flat after the first ten minutes’ things.
