"I can't do a thing with my thin, wispy strands!"

The hair sins responsible: Over time, hormonal changes do a number on our hair, causing us to lose some of it as well as making each strand thin out. That doesn't mean, however, that we should simply live with it! That said, bad hair habits can aggravate this condition. "Continuously pulling the hair into an updo or ponytail can weaken it," says Pelusi. Again, as hair health gets compromised with excessive heat styling and color, it also weakens the hair, so try to cut back on both.

Techniques "Take more time to style your hair -- use rollers to give fullness, shampoo it more regularly to cleanse the scalp so it can breathe better and fuel hair growth," advises Pelusi. Also, don't be heavy-handed with silicone styling products. A pea-sized dab will give you great shine without making you look greasy.

Products Try thickening shampoos and conditioners, which are formulated to temporarily boost the width of your natural strands.
