3 ways to protect a client’s thinning hair

As a hair stylist, you will deal with all kinds of hair from the clients that come into your salon. Some will have locks that are easy to work with, while others are stuck with follicles that are thin and weak, requiring extra attention and care during their appointment.

When you have somebody with thin hair in the chair, the most important thing you can do is be careful not to cause any further damage. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can cut and style a client’s hair, no matter what shape it happens to be in.

Here are a few tips to help you out:

  • Be careful with the product: Weighing hair down with product will mean that the hair cannot grow out healthily. If you go to put anything in the hair, be sure that you do so in a way that is careful and sparing.
  • Don’t use heat: If the hair is already dry and brittle, adding heat to it will just make the problem worse. So when you are styling a client’s thin hair, you need to make sure that you are using heat as judiciously as possible.
  • Trim the hair: As long as there is dead hair on your client’s head, the healthy follicles will not be able to grow out. That is why a nice trim will do a world of good, as long as you are careful not to put too much pressure on the locks.
