Understanding and Caring for Fine or Thinning Hair

Fine hair refers to the thickness of individual hair strands while thinning hair refers to the overall density of hair on the scalp. Understanding the difference is key to choosing the right products and styling techniques.

At Mandeville London, we offer custom wigs and hairpieces specifically designed to address the unique needs of both fine and thinning hair, providing solutions that add volume and enhance natural beauty.

Our Ready Made and Made to Measure collections of Half Lace Wigs blend in seamlessly with your own hair. Our ReadyMade half wigs or toppers come in 10 colours of 12" natural European hair and with our Made to Measure collection, we can create your bespoke half wig or topper to match your own hair to the finest detail. Whether you have long hair, short, curly, straight or anything in between, we'll source your perfect match down to texture and colour variation.

Our superior half wig toppers give the impression you have healthy, thick hair that's been styled by a celebrity hairstylist each day. They are an easy way to increase coverage and density for anyone with fine hair or hair that is thinning.

Causes of Thinning Hair and How to Care for It

Thin hair can be caused by genetics, ageing, hormonal changes, or nutritional deficiencies. To promote the health of fine or thinning hair, it’s important to use preventative measures, such as gentle products, minimising heat styling and the blow dryer, and handling your hair gently. To avoid breakage or thinning stick to looser styles rather than tight updo's that pull on your hairline and roots. Our expert consultations at Mandeville London can help you identify the best care routine and products tailored to your specific needs.

Choosing the Right Products for Thicker Hair

If you want to achieve added volume and fuller locks, our half wigs and toppers are the perfect solution that is gentle on your bio hair. However if you're looking to experiment with other options, look to purchase shampoo and conditioner formulated for volumising and thickening. Avoid heavy, moisturising formulas that can weigh down fine or thin hair, as these can make hair look greasy or oily. Flat or fine hair at the roots can be made to look thicker with the use of powders and sprays such as dry shampoo which helps freshen hair between washes. At Mandeville London, we're always happy to help with our suggestions for hair care products to support the health and appearance of your hair, providing lightweight options that add more volume and texture.

Styling for Volume

Cutting and layering can significantly enhance the volume of thin hair giving you the fuller look. Shorter cuts add volume and movement, while layers provide texture and depth. Use lightweight mousses, root-lifting sprays, or volumising sprays to add body and hold. Avoid heavy styling products that can weigh down the hair.

For a personalised styling consultation, book an appointment with our experts at Mandeville London. We can go through our hairpieces and toppers and see what fits you best.

Drying and Finishing Techniques

Air drying is an excellent option for thinning hair, as it prevents excessive heat damage and maintains natural texture. Use minimal product and keep any moisturising products away from the roots to avoid weighing down the hair and opt for root spray with volumising benefits. For flat hair, blow-drying with a round brush can give a polished finish and create a fuller appearance. Some like to dry their damp hair upside down for added lift, especially around the roots! Limp hair can be targeted with rollers, as this will add lift and style without heat damage. Our specialists at Mandeville London can demonstrate the best techniques for achieving volume at home regardless of the hair type.

Adding Volume with Accessories

In some circumstances, options such as hair extensions can be a tempting solution. However, we advise those with fine or thinning hair to use caution when considering extensions or integrated hair systems that are fixed permanently to your natural roots. Though you may be happy with the look of longer locks or the added body they can lend, adding weight and tension to your roots is not a long-term solution for those with hair loss, as it can exacerbate the problem over time, not to mention the lengthy and expensive trips to the salon to have them refitted.

Advanced Styling Options for Thinning Hair

Hair toppers and hairpieces can give thin hair a more coverage at the scalp and add density to your lengths. Consider using clip-in hair toppers or hairpieces and find a professional such as the Mandeville team for your every need.

Our professional stylists at Mandeville London are skilled in advanced styling techniques that enhance the appearance of fine or thinning hair.

"Dear Robert & Jo, as someone who has been coming to Mandeville for quite sometime now! I really thought it was about time to write and thank you and I let you know how wonderful you are! I have only ever received kindness, thoughtfulness, discretion and always professionalism from you and also Janet who I speak to on the phone from time to time. Up until now I have had many made to measure, beautiful hair pieces, starting with a lovely 3/4 piece. So with my son’s wedding fast approaching, I felt I needed a nice new, fresh set of hair – but with no time to waste and feeling more than a little nervous – I went for my first ‘Ready Made’. Well I had no worry for worry or nerves! As usual you guys came up trumps and I love my new ready made! Its sleek, shiny and as ever, has been cut and styled perfectly by Robert. I know I don’t have to tell you how traumatic hair loss is, losing your growing glory! You have helped me more than I can say, doing this with such kindness. I always look forward to my visits, catching up with Jo is always a pleasure and putting the world to rights with Robert is great fun and time flies by! A big thank you." Maggie - London

“Dear Robert, I’m absolutely thrilled with my transformation. I wish I’d done it years ago. It was a relaxation to feel safe in the breeze and know that people weren’t staring at the ‘Micheal Jackson’. The reaction of others has been very positive. I’ve really enjoyed the compliments, something i’m not used to, it now feels much more like the real me! I love it. Please thank Jo for her warmth and friendliness. It was great to draw on her experience and understanding. Thank you again, especially for the entertainment. I’m sure I’ll be back again! Regards, Sue.” Sue - Suffolk
