There are a number of reasons why hair loss and hair thinning can occur in both men and women, whether it be through alopecia, illness, genetics, hormones or vitamin deficiencies. Statistics show that 8 million women in the UK alone experience hair loss, while male pattern baldness affects around half of all men, and Alopecia Areata can affect 2 in every 1,000 people*. With stats like these, there is a large market of people looking for hair loss/hair thinning-friendly salons.

Does your salon cater to people with hair loss?

Are you a hair salon, beauty salon or barbershop owner wanting to expand your services into helping clients who have experienced hair loss? Whether you’d like to offer help and advice, specialised treatments, or expand your range of hair thickening shampoos and enhancers dedicated to people with hair loss, we hope today’s article will offer you a place to start.

Hair thickening treatments for clients with thinning hair…

Clients with thinning hair can be treated with Nioxin hair products – The world’s best-selling salon brand for thinning hair. Nioxin’s specialist technology allows you to help your clients achieve thicker, strong, better-quality hair. Choose from our range of treatment products for the different stages of hair thinning. Whether you’re looking for the Nioxin Trial Kit System 4, which helps clients who have thinning, chemically altered hair, or the Nioxin Trial Kit System 1 for clients with noticeably fine hair, we have a Nioxin product for everyone.

Hair fibres for thicker, fuller looking hair

Hair fibres are a great way to help clients achieve thicker looking, fuller hair – particularly if the hair is noticeably thinning or is naturally very fine. The Bravado hair fibres range is made from the highest grade natural keratin which has the same genetic profile as the protein found in human hair, ensuring a natural look. We also offer the Hair Sculptor, hair building fibres for both male and female clients. These natural fibres cover the scalp and adhere to thin hair to make it look thicker and more natural, a total confidence booster for your client!

Specialist shampoos for thinning hair…

The Goldwell Dualsenses Scalp Specialist Deep Cleansing Shampoo offers clients a clean and fresh scalp, whilst removing product build-up and styling residue. This specialist hair care treatment is absolutely ideal for clients with a sensitive scalp and/or thinning hair.

The power of makeup…

Hair loss doesn’t just affect the hair on our heads, it can also affect the eyebrows and eyelashes. With this in mind, beauty salons can also help clients with facial hair loss/hair thinning feel confident through the art of makeup. One way of doing this could be to offer makeup lessons to clients who want to learn to shade in their brows or give the illusion of a lash line. You could also go one step further and market your salon towards makeup for clients with hair loss for special occasions such as weddings or proms.
