Wax because of thinning hair? Do I not wear it because I don’t want thinning hair?
If you are asking yourself these questions, we recommend that you consider the impact of waxing on your hair before you consider it.
Synthetic surfactants were causing hair thinning!
Synthetic surfactants are not only used in shampoos, but also in waxes. This is because, in addition to improving the lather of shampoo, it softens the hair and makes it easier to style.
If you have thin and frizzy hair, it is difficult to style it, so wax use is high, but it is best to avoid using it if possible. If you don’t apply it to the roots, you can still reduce damage to thinning hair, but if you don’t take the time to clean it with shampoo, it can cause problems such as clogged pores.
Wax on hair tends to spread to the scalp when sweating, so consider using it while also considering the scalp environment.
Thinning hair looks even less when waxed!
One of the disadvantages of using wax for people with thinning hair is that it makes the hair look extra small. A strong wet look makes the hair look more bunched up instead of smooth.
The more bunches you get, the larger the gaps in your hair will appear and the flatter your hair will clump together, which will emphasize thinning hair. Unless you change the timing of blow-drying and waxing, you will get the impression of only disadvantages and not good things.
Learn how people with thinning hair can make better use of wax.
As we have shown, there are only disadvantages for people with thinning hair to use wax unless they are creative. Here are some ways to make good use of wax with thinning hair.
- Careful selection from types of wax
If a person with thinning hair uses wax, avoid a wet look. Gel-type waxes are sticky and make the hair bundles sticky, so even the skin of the hair will be exposed. Matte-type waxes should be used only in small quantities, which will improve the finish without making the hair strands look weird.
- Do not apply wax after towel-drying.
Do not apply wax while hair is still wet. Wax rarely dries with a hair dryer, so you don’t want it to clump or turn white. It is recommended that a very small amount of wax be applied after the hair has been blow-dried and styled.
As mentioned above, depending on how you apply the wax, you can make your thinning hair styling better, so give it a try.
