All about how to grow long hair and the main facts behind hair growth itself

Thinning hair? Men often suffer from this issue as they get older. While we can’t do much about our genetics, there are ways to improve hair growth for men, and make hair feel and look thicker involving specialist haircare and a few expert hair styling tricks.


Why does men's hair thin?

While both men and women can suffer from thinning hair, when it comes to hair loss, men experience the concern more so than women. Hair growth for men, with its tell-tale thinning hairline, is a common issue. Known as male pattern baldness, men’s hair loss is related to testosterone, which is why receding hairlines and eventual full (or quasi-total) baldness almost only affects men. Other causes for hair loss include stress, diet, allergies and certain medical treatments.

Thinning hair: men’s styling tips

Mark O'Keeffe from Brown Sugar Salon has some expert tips for making hair appear thicker:

1. If you have found that your hair looks thin at the front, a great tip is to have your hair cut so that it is shorter at the sides, and heavier at the top. This is a great way to make the hair look thicker as it balances out the weight of the hair that normally sits in a horse-shoe shape around the head. Cuts such as a dandy boy or the classic faded barber cut are perfect for this look.

2. Once you have the right cut, styling the hair can be just as helpful in adding a look of thickness and density to hair. A trick is to blow-dry your hair with a vent brush, bringing the hair forward and up as you dry to create height and weight in the hair. This will add volume to the hair and make it look fuller.

3. A perfect style for those of you with curly hair is to let your hair fall forward, and dry with a diffuser. This will maintain the volume of your hair and help it look denser.
