7 Deadly Sins That Make Your Hair Thin!

May 27, 2015 2 min read

Thinner is fine if you're talking about my midsection, but it's a nightmare if you're referring to my hair! Here are the 7 deadliest haircare sins causing your lush locks to thin:

#1 Steamy showers

Hot water dehydrates hair just like skin. It strips your natural oils from your strands, so turn the dial down a notch.

#2 Hot styling tools

Blow dryers and straighteners scorch proteins right out of your hair! To prevent disrupting your moisture balance, limit your hot styling usage to twice a week at the most.

#3 Tight up-dos

Tight buns and braids can reek havoc on hair. Loosen them up and don't pull on them to tighten them. Let your hair down as much as you can!

#4 Birth control pills

Oral contraceptives have been known to thin hair and cause shedding. Most pills contain androgens, and if you have an androgen sensitivity, your hair can be affected. Find out if this is the case, and switch to a low-androgen index brand on birth control.

#5 Diets

Switching up your food intake or starving your body can have impact on hair health. Make sure you stick to a balanced diet of lean meats, lots of fish and beans. Hair needs that protein to grow healthy, strong and thick. '

#6 Longwear styling products

All-day mega-hold styling products like gels and sprays are a danger to hair. If they make your hair stiff or sticky, forget them. They most likely are high in alcohol and are damaging your follicles. Look for softer styling creams that nourish and moisturize.

#7 Not washing hair

It's not good to wash your hair every day, but it's not good to leave it too long either. The longer you skip the wash and use dry shampoo, they more product, dirt and oils build in your hair and weigh it down. This can cause breakage, so wash hair every two to three days.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
