I'll be the first to admit that I often neglect my hair when it comes to styling. My skincare routine is intense. When I do my makeup - I go all out. But I can not tell you the last time I "did" my hair. (Unless putting dry shampoo in it counts.)
My hair is naturally straight, difficult to curl, lacks volume, and difficult to set into place. So this means, I often just let it air dry and brush it out. But there are times when I want to do SOMETHING with my hair...and I just don't. I don't indulge in "hairapy." So I decided to try a tip from celebrity stylist, Jill Crosby. (See list below.)

So what are the early signs of hair loss?
- Thinning Hair – hair loses volume and density over time
- Hair Shedding – increased hair accumulation in shower, pillow, and hair brush. Most people lose between 50-100 hairs a day, which is considered normal hair loss; a consistent loss of 150 hairs a day is considered significant hair loss. If hair loss is sudden or patchy, consult a medical professional.
- Widening part or visible scalp – increased scalp visibility is a definite sign of hair loss
- Wear hats that fit and ditch the ones that don't
- Jill Crosby: “Hats cause hair loss only when they are too tight, don’t fit well, or rub and pull the hair constantly. Go ahead and enjoy wearing hats and caps that fit properly – especially the soft knit types.”
- Embrace styling tools!
- Jill Crosby: “You can use all of the same tools and techniques, just with less heat and less tension. The key here is gentle. Ask your salon stylist to ease up on the heat and tension, and use a light touch with towels and hairbrushes at home.”
- Switch up your part
- Jill Crosby: “Experiment with flipping your part to the opposite side. By adding a little texture spray to the roots you can get a new voluminous flip started. Or try a look without a defined part – sometimes with fine hair parts can expose too much scalp.”
