The Truth About Thinning Hair

The thing about thinning hair is it’s not just a physical change. It can be an emotional one, too. Which is why we wanted to lay some ideas out here in a clear, concise and helpful way. And if there’s one thing we’ve learned about how to tackle pretty much anything connected to your hair or body, it’s that an ‘inside/out’ approach always makes sense - which is why we’ve also put a kit together with a month’s supply of our new Renewed Density Hair Loss Ampoules plus our bestselling Collagen Powder, so you can tackle the issue…head on.

Will Washing Your Hair More Frequently Cause Thinning?

No, if you use a gentle shampoo, it’s fine to wash as regularly as you like. Some experts recommend that when you lather up, you massage the shampoo gently into the scalp, and let it run down through the hair shafts, rather than trying to rub directly into the hair, which might result in you tugging on it and causing friction.

Does Hair Conditioner Weigh Hair Down?

Actually, your conditioner is probably doing the opposite: swelling the hair cuticles with moisture and making it softer and easier to style - minimising damage from brushing and styling.

Does Blow Drying Thin Hair?

No - it’s ok to use a hairdryer, straighteners - any kind of heat appliance - just put it on the coolest setting and don’t overdo it. Ideally, stop before the hair is 100% dry, and always use a heat protector spray, too.

How Can I Prevent Hair Thinning?

Our new Renewed Density Anti-Hair Loss Ampoules are designed with hair thinning in mind.

Used regularly, these ampoules contribute to the prevention of hair loss * using a REDENSYL complex that supports the hair follicle and increases the quantity of hair in the growth phase.  Hair becomes fuller and stronger with extended use. 

*Test carried out on 20 volunteers for 12 weeks.

BEAUTY PIE Renewed Density Anti-Hair-Loss Ampoules

How Do I Know If They're Working?

  • 77% agreed their hair looks and feels thicker and their scalp felt healthier after 4 weeks 

  • 87% agreed their hair looks and feels thicker after 8 weeks

  • 90% agreed their hair looks and feels thicker after 12 weeks

(Based on 52 user trial participants over 12 weeks). 

How Should I Use Them?

  • Take one ampoule and lift from underneath the plastic tab to release the seal. Unwind fully and pull upwards to remove the stopper. Discard the seal.

  • Attach the applicator cap with the nozzle facing upwards. Remove the small nozzle-end cap to apply the product. (Do not discard the nozzle-end cap.)

  • Distribute drop by drop onto a dry or towel-dried scalp and massage to absorb. Do not rinse. For INTENSE treatment, use ½ - 1 vial per day for 1 month. For MAINTENANCE, use 1 vial per week on an ongoing basis. 

  • Reattach the nozzle-end cap when you’ve finished applying the product.

  • When treatment is complete, keep the nozzle applicator cap and discard the glass vial. 

What If I Feel a Tingle When I Use Them?

As with many potent scalp products, Renewed Density contains allergen and irritating ingredients that may cause tingling and reddening of the scalp and skin. Do not apply if your scalp is particularly sensitive, irritated or damaged, and patch test with a small amount before use. Not suitable for sensitive skin. 

Can Supplements Help With Thinning Hair?

We think it’s always best to take an ‘inside out’ approach. Our Collagen Super Powder provides 10g collagen PLUS Biotin which supports healthy hair, which is why we’ve put it in a kit with a month’s supply of RENEWED DENSITY Anti-Hair Loss Ampoules. 

What Other Supplements are Good for Thinning Hair?

Vitamin D

As well as being anti-inflammatory, Vitamin D plays an important role in the hair cycle. Vitamin D binds to receptors in hair follicles and promotes growth, new follicles help to maintain overall thickness and slow the rate at which existing hairs fall out.

BEAUTY PIE’s Like Sun is a high-strength, bioavailable vitamin D3 supplement, which also includes vitamins K2 and E suspended in olive oil, making this softgel easy to take.

One high-strength softgel delivers 1000 IU of vitamin D3. It’s naturally sourced and extracted from the concentrated Cholecalciferol (that’s Provitamin D3) in organic Scandinavian, North American & Asian Lichen – making it vegan too, unlike most vitamin D3 in food supplements.


A good multivitamin (and our Perfect Daily option is BRILLIANT) can provide a great basis for the normal functioning of scalp and hair. Ours is highly effective mix of 22 incredible nutrients, in two capsules a day. With well-absorbed nutrients, these capsules contain optimal daily intakes of all the B vitamins, vitamin C plus Bioflavonoids, vitamin A, vitamin E, plus Copper, Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Iodine, Selenium and Zinc.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is vital for the absorption of iron into the body, and iron deficiency has been shown to contribute to hair loss. 

‎Our Efficient C supplement delivers 1000mg of naturally-derived Vitamin C to help support your normal immune function, collagen formation for the normal function of your skin, bones, teeth and gums, your energy metabolism, iron absorption and nerve health, and your general wellbeing. The liquid is wrapped in micro-bubbles of soy-free phospholipid liposomes - lipids that are biomimetic to our cell membranes - and flavoured with a dash of natural orange. Manufactured under a nitrogen gas blanket for optimum stability, Efficient C is our ultimate Vitamin C supplement.

What's a Good Hairstyle for Thinning Hair?

We asked our good friend, London-based hair-stylist-to-just-about-everybody Adam Reed about this. He said a layered cut can help, as it will give the appearance of fullness. Also avoid anything that feels annoying or uncomfortable, like pulling a ponytail too tight, or wearing a fringe or bangs too long so that you have to keep pushing it out of your eyes.

What if I'm Still Worried?

Visit your doctor, so that they can talk through your situation and decide whether it’s a health condition (which might be due to things like stress, or medications you’re taking), or other lifestyle issues - and help you find solutions.
