It falls and breaks faster, it struggles to hold the style, it has little volume and often suffers from split ends. Fine and thin hair gives the sensation of having a reduced and not very fluffy hair, devoid of shape.
The diameter of the hair depends on genetic causes and varies from person to person: some people are born with fine hair, while others with thick hair. Fine hair is less robust than thick hair and is more vulnerable and prone to internal and external attacks.
Hair is made up of three layers: the medulla, which is the innermost part, the cortex or the median band on which the thickness and shape of the hair depend and the cuticle, that is the outermost coating. In fine hair, the cortex is thin and undersized and it is for this reason that hair tends to break more easily than those with a stronger cortex.
| The causes of fine hair
In addition to the hereditary factor, too fine and brittle hair is a symptom of psychological stress or external stressors such as overly aggressive cosmetic treatments.
Taking certain medications contributes to making the hair more fragile. Also age plays a role: a teenager will have thicker and more robust hair than an elderly person. Hair color is also important: various analysis have shown, for example, that people with red hair tend to have thinner hair than people with dark or black hair.
Finally, external atmospheric agents can contribute to making the hair thinner and more fragile. Furthermore, after chemotherapy, hair that does not fall out weakens and loses volume.
