Hi Tatty, Hair can be thin for a number of reasons, from genetics to bad hair habits. Do you use heat every day? Using heat can lead to thinning, brittle hair. Are you avoiding sulfates? Be sure to buy shampoos that are labeled "sulfate free." Are you brushing your hair every day? Skip the brush entirely and use a wide tooth comb, but be very gentle with your hair. Then, I urge you to try Jamaican black castor oil. Lots of naturals swear by it. Read this article on CurlyNikki, and skip ahead to the section on the scalp. If you rub this into your scalp in circular motions, you will encourage growth. It may take a long time, but keep at it and be patient! Good luck,
