My name is Kristy Sunday, I am married to Mariel’s brother Logan, and I feel honored to be able to post something on her blog! My entire life I have struggled with thin hair and have wanted more!! So as a hairstylist and salon owner, I have been on a life-long mission looking for the best products for thinning hair to help not only myself, but my family, friends, and clients.
The Best Products for Thinning Hair:
Let’s start with shampoo and conditioner for thinning hair:
I feel the Bosley line is the best on the market, and it’s the one I like to use for myself. It has 10 times the amount of DHT blockers than its other competing lines, such as Nioxin or Rogaine. DHT stands for Dihydrotestosterone, (which is a form of testosterone.) This is extremely important, because as women age they start producing less estrogen and more testosterone, which is why they start getting male pattern baldness. Testosterone is also responsible for hair loss in most men. What Bosley does is remove the DHT from your scalp daily as you use their shampoo. Their conditioner prepares your scalp for the thickening treatment which helps stimulate hair growth.
Bosley is also my favorite because it won’t dry out your hair like the competing lines, and they have four different formulas to fit everyone’s needs. They have a men’s line and also three women’s lines: one for color treated hair, one for thinning hair, and one for noticeably thinning hair.
So, Bosley’s shampoo and conditioner helps PREVENT hair loss, but they also have two modoxidil treatments, one for men and one for women. Modoxidil helps RESTORE hair which has been lost, without any horrible side effects.
Now, for my favorite styling aids for thinning hair:
L’Oreal Professional’s Force Vector Thermo Protector – It not only protects the hair from the heat of the blow dryer and hot tools, but also strengthens the hair strand. It has man made lipids that actually go inside the the hair strand and builds thickness and strength from the inside out.
Redken’s Woolshake – This is great to give your hair a wooly texture, creating a dense feel to the hair. Great for women with shorter hair or great for just the top and roots of longer hair.
L’Oreal Professional’s Densité – A weightless, all-over spray to thicken each hair strand.
L’Oreal Professional’s Lift Extreme – A great root lifter that is not sticky and will create extreme lift, just as it says. Great for those who round brush!
Redken’s Iron Silk – For those who like curls to last all day in their thin hair. This has a light yet strong hold. You put this in before blow drying to create a great surface to hold lasting curls.
L’Oreal Professional’s Expansion – This is also weightless, great for long hair! It’s not heavy or sticky!
Favorite finishing products for thinning hair:
I like aerosol hair sprays. These don’t weigh down thin hair. L’Oreal Professional has four hairsprays that start with a lighter hold up to a really strong hold for those of you who like it stiff!
Bead Heads Masterpiece Hairspray – I love this one. It smells delicious and has a medium hold with tons of shine.
L’Oreal Professional Perfect Shimmer Hairspray – If you need more shine and luster, this is a great one.
Favorite styling aids for men:
Redken’s Woolshake -Men also like this to blow dry into their hair to create a thicker feel before styling.
Mister Pompadour Texture Powder – This is a dry volumizing powder (for both men and women). It’s unscented, which is a nice element!
Now for those who have tried everything on the market for thinning hair, and it’s just not cutting it, don’t give up!! I even have solutions for you!
I just found a line of extension hair this past year that has a full line of different kinds of hair accessories to meet everyone’s needs. It’s the same brand of hair pieces worn by Jessica Simpson, Wynonna Judd, Raquelle Welch, and many other celebrities. Its called Top Secret Haircessories, and it’s an extensive line of hair. From bang pieces, ponytail pieces, to extensions to thicken and lengthen, to full top pieces for those who are visibly thinning on top.
Barefoot Blonde Hair by Amber Fillerup is another great option; she has a wide range of hair piece options, and even lets you try a sample before buying (you’ll just pay $4.99 for shipping, but it covers up to 5 different sample colors). She just came out with a new piece specifically designed for updos, which is genius. It can be so hard to hide the root of the extensions when pulling hair up! BFB Up makes it a lot easier to add volume when pulling hair into even a simple look like a bun.

I know how it is to be insecure because of thinning hair, but the effective products for thinning hair are out there. I just had a baby a year ago and my hair all started falling out. I was so freaked out because I already had thin hair to begin with. So I got a top secret hair piece and it has made the biggest difference! My mom also got one and it has really changed her life! She is single and dating and it made her feel way more confident! She wears it everyday and loves it! She no longer has to style her hair either, she just takes it off at night and puts it on in the morning and looks fabulous in minutes. She has told me she will never go with out one again.
Here’s my mom before her Top Secret hair piece:
