It’s true that many women spend a significant amount of time and money trying to help their hair look its best. However, if you have fine or thin hair, you may find that this borders on obsession. You may feel that you would do nearly anything to help your hair look thick and full, like a shampoo model. There comes a point where this obsession can get in the way of enjoying life. So, take a moment and consider your own feelings towards your hair—you may find that it is time to pull back a bit, address your budding hair obsession, and not let it get you down.
Here are a few ways to tell if you’re obsessed with your hair. First, look at your selection of styling products. Has it taken over your bathroom? Most women only need one or two core products to get the look they desire. Clean out those products you have purchased and did not like, as well as getting rid of those that have effects that make them undesirable. For instance, with thin hair, avoiding products with wax is especially important, since it makes your hair dull and flat. In the future, avoid the temptation to try every new product. Wait to hear how they work for friends, or read reviews online and find out if the product will work for you, without making the investment.
Also, scale back on the time you spend worrying about your hair. In the scheme of things, how thick your hair looks is a minor thing. If you are unhappy with your current hair situation, talk to your stylist about steps you can take to improve it, instead of simply worrying. You may never have Jennifer Aniston’s mane, but with some help from a trusted stylist your hair can look wonderful, without the worry.
Your hair may be thin, but that does not mean it isn’t beautiful. By giving it the care it needs, without going overboard, your thin hair can still become your crowning glory. You can even think about growing it long. Even if you are having a bad hair day, just remember that no one notices the flaws with your hair nearly as much as you do. If things are that bad, just take a deep breath, relax and put on a baseball cap. Tomorrow is a new hair day.
