Make Thin Hair Look Fuller
Thinning hair can affect anyone, regardless of your age, gender, or ethnicity. Many times the cause is heredity, but very tight braids, over processing, and stress can cause your hair to thin. Some medical conditions and medications can cause your hair to thin. Men may notice a horseshoe pattern developing (“male pattern baldness”), where the hair on the crown and front hairline will become thinner. Women tend to experience thinning hair near the front of their hairline at the front part. Changes in hormone production as we age can cause thinning hair in both men and women. Some women may notice their hair getting thin when they are pregnant, but this usually corrects itself once they give birth. Whatever the reason you may be losing hair, it can be embarrassing.
Losing 100 to 150 hairs a day is a normal part of the hair growth process. It is important to remember that as the seasons change it is normal to see a few more hairs in our brushes or in the shower drain. Hair has three growth stages:The Anagen Phase is when your hair is actively growing. The hair begins to break down during the Catagen Phase: and in the Telogen Phase your hair enters into a resting period. It is during the Catagen and Telogen Phases that your body sheds hair.

She will be able to tell you if your condition is treatable in the salon or if you should consult with your doctor.
