It’s time to examine your locks. The first clue to thin hair is a visible scalp. Do you see gaps when combing through your hair or has your part widened? Other signs of thinning hair are color fading, brittle strands and difficulty putting your hair into a ponytail.
To see if you have fine hair, grab a single strand and run your finger through it. How does it feel? Fine hair tends to be smoother, silkier and smaller than thick hair. Another way to figure out if you have finer locks is by comparing a strand to a piece of thread. If it’s smaller than the thread, chances are you have fine hair.
