Hair Care Tips For Thin Hair

{SCA} People lose hair for various reasons. Illness and medication (like chemotherapy to treat cancer) can cause hair loss. Hair loss can also be inherited from a parent. Often, hair thins because it is fine-textured or because too many harsh chemicals have been used on it, so it breaks easily.
