  • When hair starts to thin, it’s important to address it early as it is easier to keep it than to get it back.
  • Use products designed for scalp health and thinning hair that add thickness and volume so hair has a fuller look, and when used for prevention, slow the look of aging hair.
  • Shampoo frequently with a thinning hair cleanser, like Bosley Professional Strength BosRevive Nourishing Shampoo, which is designed to remove any build-up and debris from the scalp and hair.
  • For a quick cover up try natural keratin hair fibers like Bosley Professional Strength Hair Thickening Fibers, as they give instant density in the hairline and crown.
