Hair thinning and loss of thickness is an issue that affects thousands of women.

(45 per cent of women to be exact!) Just like the rest of our body, our hair changes as we age, becoming brittle, wiry or limp. Luckily we can reverse the damage, as there are solutions to our hair-loss woes in the form of great at-home products. We broke it down into three easy steps that will help to renew the scalp and encourage new hair growth.

STEP 1: Use a shampoo and conditioner that is regenerative.

Giovanni Cosmetics Wellness Shampoo and Conditioner ($12 each, at Shoppers Drug Mart, Whole Foods, Loblaws and specialty health food stores) are enriched with herbs and botanicals like ginseng and jai ma chi xian to strengthen the root and promote growth through scalp stimulation.

STEP 2: Apply a nourishing mask.

Apply Kevin.Murphy Young.Again.Masque ($49 at select salons) to wet hair—paying special attention to your ends-—and let it sit for up to 20 minutes. Then rinse. The mask tackles hair’s premature aging by preventing damage to the cell structure, leaving locks shiny and soft.

STEP 3: Protect with a leave-in conditioner.

Prevent further damage and enrich your hair with Peter Lamas Chinese Herbs Revitalizing Nutrient Mist ($20, Shoppers Drug Mart). The mist will detangle and nourish the hair with vitamins like B3, B5 and B7, which help retain moisture and increase growth and fullness.
