Your question

How can I preserve my thinning hair?

Larry's answer!

Thinning hair is something no woman wants! After all, sexy bombshell hair is popular for a reason. Sometimes we can't prevent nature when it comes to our hair, so a little thinning is inevitable depending on your hair type. That said, we wanted to know a few ways to slow down or prevent extra thinning, so we turned to our pal Larry Sims, celebrity hair stylist.

Larry's first piece of advice? Watch how you style those locks, ladies! "The best way to preserve thinning hair is to not snag or break the hair during your styling process. Hook rubber bands and natural boar bristle brushes are great." Nice tip, Larry — a trip to the drugstore is in our immediate future for these essentials.

Larry's second and final piece of advice deals with the tools you use for styling, and more importantly, the settings you use. "Using low heat while styling with thermal tools is essential as well. Heat protectants are golden when it comes to preserving the hair. Smooth ‘N Shine Silk ‘N Sleek Straighten Polisher protects your hair up to 425 degrees."

Nice advice, Larry! We feel a little bit better now.

Since I turned 40 a few years ago, my beautiful, long hair looks thin and fried. I can't even grow my hair out anymore since it breaks so much. I like your tips. I never really tried changing my brush to a natural bristle brush, so I'll give that a try. I have used heat protectors and didn't see any real results. I'll have to try the brand you suggested and see if that helps.

Great tips! I think it's important to do these things even if you're hair isn't thinning - it's a great preventative tool!
