Is Your Red Hair Thinning? Here’s How to Fix It

Remember, some hair loss is normal but it's best to be proactive

Updated: November 2nd, 2023

Thinning hair can happen at any age, for a number of reasons. If you’re struggling with your red hair thinning, you might feel like giving up. But, there are ways to stop or slow the process. Here’s everything you need to know about fixing your thinning red hair

1. Visit a doctor

The most common reason for hair loss and thinning of the hair is age, but there are also a number of medical factors that can cause thinning of the hair. Childbirth, illnesses such as COVID, diet, thyroid disorders and vitamin deficiencies can all cause loss of hair. Visiting your doctor to find out why you’re suffering from hair loss is the first step. 

If you’ve just given birth or had an illness, your hair loss may stop on its own, you just have to give it time. If your doctor diagnoses you with a protein or vitamin deficiency you can stop or slow hair loss by filling that gap in your intake. 

2. Adjust your diet 

If your doctor does tell you hair loss is due to a lack of protein, or your doctor finds no reason for your hair loss, it may be due to diet. Not getting enough protein or nutrients in your diet can cause all sorts of issues with your hair, body, and skin. Strive for a more balanced diet and make sure you’re eating plenty of protein and healthy fats. 

3. Use the right hair products 

When suffering from hair loss, you may be able to use certain hair products to help promote new growth. Opt for shampoos and other hair products that contain ingredients for promoting growth. You can also take vitamins like biotin and do scalp treatments to help your new growth be healthy. 

4. Be gentle on your hair 

Being rough on your hair, over-brushing, over-washing and tight hairstyles can all lead to breakage and hair loss. Try to be more gentle with your hair, brushing it in sections starting towards the bottom, using a silk or satin pillowcase, wearing protective hairstyles at night and not tugging or pulling on your hair can all keep it healthy. 

When drying your hair opt to use a microfiber towel! Introducing the How to be a Redhead Soft Microfiber Hair Towel for Redheads. Because wet hair is at its most vulnerable, this custom microfiber towel gently and carefully absorbs moisture from your red hair and dries it quickly, all while protecting it from stretching and breakage. This design is uniquely shaped to wrap all of your hair securely (no matter the length), with an elastic strap to comfortably keep things in place. Your hair journey starts here, redheads.

5. Keep your scalp healthy 

In addition to keeping your hair healthy, you have to keep your scalp healthy. An unhealthy scalp will lead to excess hair loss and reduced new growth. Keep your scalp healthy by washing it thoroughly, using a clarifying shampoo if needed, and reducing your use of hair products like dry shampoo and hair spray.
