Products We Love: The Best Solutions For Thinning Hair
We take great pride in our hair and want it to look fabulous at all times. Since the road to 'fabulous' can involve flatirons, curling irons, blowdryers, pressing combs, relaxers, haircolor, weaves, and too-tight cornrows, the truth is that our tresses can end up breaking off, falling out, or thinning around the hairline. The good news is that hair care brands are finally creating products that address the hair loss epidemic (like Biolustre, the line of hair repair products used by celeb stylist Ricardo Rojas to whip Selita Ebanks' strands into shape). Here, the best product lines to help rejuvinate and revitalize thinning hair.
It’s no secret that black women take great pride in our hair. We want it to look fabulous at all times! Since the road to ‘fabulous’ can involves flatirons, curling irons, blowdryers, pressing combs, relaxers, texturizers, haircolor, weaves, and too-tight cornrows, the truth is that our tresses can end up suffering, big time—ie, it can start thinning around the hairline, breaking off, or actually falling out. In fact, 40% of hair loss sufferers in the United States are women. The good news is that hair care brands are finally creating products that address the hair loss epidemic.
One of the best product systems is the Biolustre Intense Repair Kit ($49.95), revolutionary new 4-step-kit that aims to restore hair to its virgin condition in one hour (all the rage in Europe, it’s quickly becoming a must-have among celebs like Eva Longoria Parker and Selita Ebanks). The set includes a Release Cleansing Shampoo, Revive Repair Treatment, Restore Maintenance Treatment Shampoo and Renew Daily Conditioning Sealant—all of which contain a synthetic polymer that binds to the hair and rebuilds it to its glossy, natural state.
