There are plenty of products available to help you regrow hair, and most of them are quite effective at strengthening weak hair, rebuilding hair follicles, and increasing the volume, thickness, and strength of thinning hair.

But beyond just applying these products and leaving them be, or following treatment regimens as labeled, there are many important differences between caring for a totally healthy head of hair, and caring for thinning hair, especially when you’re using different treatment devices.

Here’s a quick list of tips and advice that will surely be helpful to you as you try to regrow your thinning hair.
