Losing between 50 to100 strands of hair a day is normal for both men and women, according to the NHS.
But some variables, such as medical conditions, stress, age and genetics, can make hair fall out faster.
Although the only way to expect a fully restored head of hair is with hair restoration surgery, there are many ways to aid thinning hair at home, including switching your shampoo.
Whilst it’s not a solution, using a new hair care product that contains caffeine or has DHT blocking ingredients can give a temporary lift to thin hair, thanks to strengthening properties.
So, if you want to give one a try, here are 12 of the best options around.
