8 Ways to Make Your Hair Thicker
For some of us, thin hair is genetic. For others, our lifestyle contributes to our thinning hair. There are several techniques you can begin immediately to boost your hair volume and even grow new thicker hair.
Only Wash Your Hair Twice A Week
Too many people shampoo their hair daily. According to dermatologists, this does more harm than good. When you wash your hair, you are also washing away important nutrients that protect your hair.
Instead of washing your hair daily, invest in a good dry shampoo and use it in the mornings. Not only will it clean your hair, but it will also add a surprising amount of volume.
When you do shampoo your hair, make sure you use a conditioner to keep your hair moisturized.
Lay Off the Heat
Using too much heat on your hair will eventually lead to thinning hair and split ends. Try to use a low heat product and only use heat a few times a week.
Improve Your Nutrition
Eating a well balanced diet is key to healthy hair. Your body requires protein and nutrients to provide your cells with what they need to grow strong healthy.
Don't brush your hair when it's wet, this will cause breakage. Brush your hair when it's dry, once per day and be sure to massage your scalp with your brush. Massaging your scalp introduces blood flow to your follicles.
Use Natural Treatments
Once or twice a week, try a home remedy treatment for your hair. Mix 1 egg, 1 avocado, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of flax seed oil together and massage into your hair and scalp. Leave the treatment in your hair for 30-60 minutes and rinse with shampoo.
It's really surprising how much stress impacts our lives. Your hair is no exception. Stress can release hormones in your body that can damage your hair follicles and cause balding.
Use Hair Boosting Supplements
For thicker hair, try supplementing biotin, viviscal, or fish oil daily for several months. If you're a balding man use Rogaine. Rogaine is a foam you put in your hair twice a day and has been proven to regrow hair in 85% of men.
Use Volumizing Shampoos
Choose a hair thickening shampoo that has natural ingredients. You can use a site like www.ewg.org to check the safety of your product.
