How to Make Hair Thicker in 5 Easy Steps

If you would like to know how to make hair thicker, you must first understand that factors such as nutritional deficiencies, poor hair care practices, as well as hormonal imbalances can cause hair loss or thinning. In a bid to grow thicker hair, some people resort to commercial hair care products. The problem is manufacturers have introduced a wide range of hair care products making it hard for consumers to choose the right one. Read on to learn how to grow a thicker patch of hair.

How to Make Hair Thicker

If you love trying out every hair care product that hits the market, you may be destroying your hair unknowingly. Remember hair care products contain chemicals that can even burn the scalp. This is why hair stylists wear protective gear such as gloves when applying hair care products on clients’ hair. Ditch hair care products that contain harmful ingredient such as sodium lauryl, aminomethyl propanol, parabens, PEG-3 cocamide, and 2,5 diamine toluene sulfate. You should also avoid hair dyes. According to the National Cancer Institute, hair dyes increase the likelihood of developing bone marrow and blood cancers such as leukemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

Stimulate your Scalp

When it comes to growing thick hair, the scalp plays a big role. In view of this, you should use shampoos with certain ingredients such as eucalyptus and peppermint on your scalp. Such ingredients increase blood flow and circulation, thereby enhancing hair growth.

Watch What you Eat

The adage you are what you eat also applies to hair growth. Make sure you eat a balanced and healthy diet. This means plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Avoid sugary foods and reduce your sodium intake. Replace sugar with raw honey, or blackstrap molasses. If you have to use salt, go for unbleached sea salt. Finally, drink at least two to four liters of water every day to stay hydrated.

Protect your Hair

If you plan to spend time outdoors during summer, make sure you wear a cap or hat. Hair exposed to direct sunlight tends to dry, become brittle, and break easily. It is also wise to wear a swim cap when in the swimming pool to protect your hair from chlorine.

Trim Your Hair

Trim your hair every six to eight weeks to get rid of split ends. Uneven hair wisps or split ends will not help in your endeavors to grow thicker hair.

To make your hair thicker, you should adopt a healthy diet as well as trim and condition your hair regularly. We provide training to people who would like to become hair care professionals.

Valuable article ! There are things here I never heard of to try. Idon’t exactly need it myself but I’ll have people I know take a look !

I swear that lots of vitamin C , as in fresh squeezed orange juice and eating oranges as well is good for your hair. I grew up with all sorts of citrus trees on my parent’s property, I have a thick head of hair and did too even as a kid.
