COVID-19 took a toll on us for a lot of reasons and if you’re someone who was unfortunate enough to experience it first-hand – you may know what we’re talking about. Not only did coronavirus create chaos with our internal systems, and even our skin, but for some, it even caused thinning hair and hair loss!
And just like many others, we aren’t going to be so blasé about it! Dah-ling, hair shedding is not something to be taken lightly. So what can we do about this?
Number 4 has you covered with our top tips to thicken up your hair and leave you looking as good as new in no time! From the best growth products to the ultimate illusion hairstyles – say au revoir to thinning hair.
Wash Your Hair Enough… but Not Too Much
Yes, we know this is confusing but we’ll explain. We’re looking for what you might call… the Goldilocks amount, as the washing hair schedule for thinning hair needs to be just right. And this seems to be between 2-3 times per week especially for those experiencing hair loss.
Your hair’s natural oils are essential for healthy hair. For shine and general hair health, there is nothing better than letting mother nature do her thing.
So… a dirty truth about overwashing is that it could actually be worsening your hair loss!
But (and there is a but) – under washing your hair can actually be much worse! Especially if you’re someone who uses a lot of product in your hair, the build-up can be extremely bad for your scalp and can prevent hair from growing!
Not washing your hair enough can also lead to limp-looking hair (ugh!! we know right?), lacking in volume, making your hair appear even thinner.
So this brings us to our next point…
But we’re only human. And sometimes a GHD is the only answer on our worst BHDs!
So if you’re going to reach for the flat iron, be sure to use your Thermal Styling Spray from Number 4, to shield your mane from its wrath. Plus, enjoy a bit of hold too for the ultimate stay-all-day style!

Choose the Right Shampoo and Conditioner to Prevent Hair Loss and Thinning!
Don’t Underestimate the Power of Shampoo

Careful With the Conditioner
Conditioner is non-negotiable for beautiful hair, babe. We all know that. But is it possible to overdo it? Oui!
Overdoing it with your conditioner can actually leave your hair looking lifeless, oily and THIN. The exact opposite of what you’re going for.

The lightweight formula is unlike other conditioners, as it helps to look thick without weighing down those luscious locks!

Beat the Heat!
Hot tools are convenient and addictive, trust us we know. But if you’re seriously looking at protecting your sparse locks and preventing further hair loss – the consequences might be worse than this goodbye…
Too much heat just adds to breakage and thins hair even further, so using hot tools on the daily is possibly not the best choice to make.
