Thin Hair Styles For Men

Thin hair needs to be babied more than normal hair because it breaks easily, is often difficult to style (or to hold a style - volume), or by nature is thin because of early stages of thinning. By using the right hair products and a cut that fits your hair type, you can get a look that you're comfortable with that gives you the added advantage of hiding bald spots...or at least making your hairstyle look thicker.

Being one of the guys who hair is thin (not thick and a bit thinning), there are two things I look for whenever I try a new shampoo (which is rare). First, I want my hair to stand-up (err...volume and body I think is the way professionals describe). I don't mean standing straight up, just so it doesn't lay down on my head. With my various cowlicks and absurd straightness, if my hair lays down, it looks terrible. Second, I want my hair to look and feel thick, so I use a hair thickening gel/conditioner (see below).

So what styles work with thin hair and what cuts should you avoid all together, even if you are using products to make hair grow, it could be a while. So your hair is thinning, but how bad. It is good to use products to help get your hair to grow back but they take a while so the one thing you can do right now is get a good hair cut and style it correctly.
