Usually, slicking your hair back makes your hair look thicker, but it depends on where the hair loss is located. If you have most of the hair loss primarily in the hairline, then slicking the hair back will expose the hairline and thus, expose the hair loss more.

I have most of my thinning in the crown. But also have very slight thinning i think in the front also. So id say i got some crown thinning with very slight diffuse thinning.

It just depends on where the hair loss is concentrated, for most they slick their hair back to cover up a bald spot or thin area. But this depends on the length of the hair etc. In some cases, a slicked back hairstyle may highlight the hair loss even more, it just depends.

If you've just got a bit of thinning going on you should try using concealers. They can work wonders.

Hair loss is a common problem. Use natural and home remedies for hair loss problem. Eat a healthy diet. use onion juice. Massage your scalp with oil twice a week. Wash your hair with cold water avoid warm water to wash hair. Reduce stress. Avoid chemicals and heating products.

I also brush in a front to back style which helps create added illusionary volume...and my hair is dry when doing this.

Phillyman, is your hair wet or dry when you do the brush back?

Yeah....except that none of the stuff you mention in your post actually works to combat hair loss.

If you try using a blow dryer with the brush back, you may be surprised at how much illusionary volume it will produce.

Experiment with different products as well. Using a gel can make it look thinner, particularly with this hairstyle. But pastes/fibers/etc. can add volume and density. Using a blowdryer as Gillenator suggested is also helpful.

My hair looks the fullest when it is dry and using a blow dryer to create volume.
