5 Easy Steps To Thicker, Healthier Hair


There are more people who encounter hair thinning in life than are willing to admit. I mean, don’t we all know that woman at the salon who keeps complaining about her thin hair and seems to have tried different solutions all to no avail? So, if you’re going through hair thinning at the moment, know that you’re not alone.

Nobody wants to have limp and outright flat thin hair, especially not after bumping into that lady at the beauty store with a lush and bountiful mane. When trying to fix your hair thinning issue, it’s important to first find out the root cause (no pun intended) of the problem before you start splurging on every hair product you can get your hands on. It could be the products you use, stress, or maybe even diet. Keep in mind that hair thinning might not just be a maintenance problem but could be genetic and in this case, you have to take extra steps to prevent excessive thinning.

Having a great hair routine will always leave you with healthier looking hair but it’s important to keep in mind that what works for another might not work for you. There are a number of things you can do to get that thick hair coming but the ultimate secret to thicker hair is making sure your hair follicles are healthy.

Check out 5 tips that will help you grow thicker and healthier hair…

#1. Routinely trim your thin hair

Take out your split ends. People are using this term more figuratively to cut people off than for its original usage. This aids hair growth and eventually gives the hair more volume. You could do it yourself or book a routine appointment with your hairstylist. Tidying up loose ends will always be a good idea in every sense because that leads to overall better hair health.

#2. Avoid over-washing your hair

When you over-wash your hair — like doing it daily — you wash off the hair’s natural oils. This eventually results in frail hair. Washing your hair twice a week is advised to help rinse off impurities from the environment or an accumulation of products used. This helps maintain a healthy scalp and a healthy scalp leads to healthy hair.

#3. Minimize heat styling

The only way some of us have discovered to keep our hair submissive is to heat those tresses up, but sadly heat has been proven to make hair pop at the expense of eventually thinning your hair. One of the best pieces of advice you could get for preventing thin hair is to avoid those heat tools by limiting usage. Using them sparingly will make a huge difference. When you unavoidably have to use them, first use a heat protectant spray on your hair.

#4. Use aloe vera gel

The thing about Aloe Vera is that there are a gazillion products available that come in the form of gels and creams that can be applied directly to the scalp. This saves time and is still as effective. If you prefer a more organic and homemade approach, you could apply pure aloe gel on your scalp and let it stay for 30 minutes, then rinse off. Do this once or twice a week and in no time, thin hair would be a thing of the past.

#5. Take some hair growth supplements

There are too many hair supplements out there to choose from but look out for ones containing biotin, vitamin B, and collagen. If you can’t find all in one and you need to ditch one for the other, don’t ditch biotin. Biotin is arguably the best hair repair and growth remedy as it effectively enhances hair thickness and growth.

Bear in mind that applying these tips won’t automatically add volume to your thin hair overnight but maintaining them over time will eventually lead to healthier, thicker hair. Soon you’ll be waving goodbye to thin hair.
