Thin Hair and itchy scalp problem

About 2 months ago I purchased Clean and Clear shampoo and conditione

And had to stop using it. My scalp got super itchy. My hair started coming out more than normal. Started feeling like hay. Overall a nightmare for me.

I am 34. My hair before this was great. I have always had thin and straight as a board hair.

 

The itching has gotten  alittle better. But my hair is still thin. Hay or straw like. And dull. Any advice on my problem will be great

I do take biotin daily.

Hi minamina79,

 

I've tried that shampoo and use it daily- so far I've been okay with it because it actually caused LESS of my hair to fall out. I'm sorry it wasn't working for you!

 

Try a clarifying shampoo that will help with the ph balance of your scalp so you aren't feeling so dry or itchy on it. That's hard with thin hair I know but they can make a difference using them at least once a week! 

 

Carol's Daughter Rosemary Mint Clarifying Sulfate free Shampoo (best option as it is free of sulfates and will be less drying and stripping to the hair)

Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo

Another thing to keep in mind is that many volumizing products really put the emphasis/concentration of their items on the scalp- that is, they build up and layer more product on the scalp to give the hair that thick and full appearance which is why a clarifying shampoo is so helpful to remove that buildup! 

 

Try using volumizing mousses or sprays like the Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Blast or  Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse:
