Hair loss is a more common problem than you think. There can be multiple different factors that contribute, such as hormone-related hair loss, stress, or excessive styling that can leave your hair thinner and more ‘meh’ than usual. The good news is, however, there is something you can do about it.
Firstly, you can start with a diet that will help retain and accelerate growth. Dr. Dendy Engleman tells Byrdie that she recommends ‘eating clean proteins as well as vitamins A, B, C and D’ as well as having a proper hair care routine – choose shampoos that will encourage blood flow and contain anti-inflammatories to help your scalp.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourites so you don’t have to:
Kerastase Densifique Bain Densite Bodifying Shampoo
This bodifying shampoo is designed for hair that lacks density. It will strengthen the hair at the fibre that awakens dormant follicles to add texture, substance and resilience. A bit on the expensive side but you will definitely see results if used daily.

Nioxin Cleanser System 1 Shampoo
This is a crowd favourite and for good reason. When applied, you’ll feel a refreshing tingle to let you know that it’s working and it’s packed with vitamins, botanicals, SPF (yay!) and amino acids which makes it your best bet for a savvy hair care routine.
