Fine hair and thinning hair are two different things. The picture above features products that can assist with either or both issues. People who have fine hair have thin strands of hair and not very many of them. When they scoop their hair back with an elastic, the ponytail won’t be very thick.

People with thinning hair could suffer from a reducing hairline or a thinning crown, which means bald patches may begin to show through or you may begin to notice sparse areas on your scalp where not a lot of hair is growing.

While some of the above products work to help improve both issues, it’s important to know which category you fall into before you attempt to treat it to ensure that you’re definitely using the right products to get the best results.
