Has hair thinning affected the way you wear your hair? Since my hair began thinning, I have not been able to wear my hair down. It is growing and I suspect that new hair is coming in, but when my hair is down it looks lifeless. I have not worn my hair down since March of this year. I know that I need to trim my hair and perhaps once I get that done my hair will hold curls better and have a little more body. For those of you who's thinning has affected how you style your hair, what have you done to combat the problem?
