When it comes to thinning hair?
The thickness of hair is related to its diameter. Although this number is a precise figure, not all populations have the same standards of thick and thin hair. In fact, according to Europeans, thin hair is hair whose diameter ranges from 0.04 to 0.06 mm. Instead, normal hair has a diameter that ranges between 0.06 and 0.08 mm while thick hair between 0.08 and 0.1 mm. At the same time, Asians, having genetically thicker hair, consider normal to have hair with a diameter ranging between 0.08 and 0.12 mm. Finally, Americans are the kindest and associate thin hair with a diameter of less than 0.03 mm.
Men and thin hair: haircuts not to be done
Let's see which are the limits and which are the opportunities that each man with thin hair has to consider to improve his look. Among the men hairstyles highly not recommended for those with strong hair thinning there is the long cut. Fine hair that is kept too long, in fact, ends up to emphasize even more the hair thinning and its poor ability to cover the entire area of the scalp. The long cut, in fact, requires that volume and body that unfortunately thin hair doesn’t have. Fortunately, this is the only option to be discarded.
Kmax recommends: if, despite your thin hair, you don't want to give up the medium-long cut, use a volumizing shampoo that can improve the structure and resistance of your hair. Kmax Volumizing Shampoo is enriched with the best active ingredients and natural extracts, such as rice proteins, allantoin, aloe vera and vitamin E. It cleanses the hair in a gentle way, being free of SLS and SLES, and gives volume and thickness to the hair improving the health of the hair shaft.
Prefer the layered haircut
Instead, one of the best haircuts for men with thinning hair is the medium-length cut. Shaving the sides of the head and leaving the central part with a longer length creates the illusion of a greater volume. The length of the top can be medium to short, depending on your preference. However, be careful! An excessively scaled haircut can lead to the opposite effect: the hair is excessively impoverished.
Kmax recommends: to give immediate volume and density to fine hair, Kmax Concealing Styling Gel can’t be missing in the styling. It is the first gel enriched with keratin microfibers able to fix the look and, at the same time, give an immediate filling effect. The hair looks thicker immediately.
Thinning haircut for the man who dares
An equally valid alternative when it comes to the best haircuts for thinning hair is... shaving! After all, with a very short cut or complete shaving, the problem of thin hair is solved at the root, as by cutting it no one will notice the thinning. Finally, the shaved look allows you to reduce the time dedicated to styling and to be flawless on every occasion.
Kmax recommends: when shaving tends to highlight those small areas of the scalp where the hair is particularly thin, the perfect solution is to use a hair foundation. Made exclusively with natural pigments, Kmax Concealing Scalp Shader is a compact hair foundation ideal for covering the visible areas of the scalp and masking any type of thinning. In this way, your look will be perfectly homogeneous and neat. In addition, it is highly resistant to water and sweat: therefore, ideal for any occasion even in summer.
