It is in our nature to want to change how we look. We want to be unique. We aim to be different. We like being noticed. Bottom line is, we just want to look good.

If we have curly hair, we want it to be straight. If we have straight hair, we want it to be curly. Thin hair? We want it to be thick and have more volume. Having thin hair is caused by many factors. It can be age, genes, hormones or even using too many chemicals on the hair. Whatever the reason is, we want to change things up. So how do we get thick and bountiful locks? Read on and find out.

Proper Diet

Change starts from the inside. If you want thicker and healthier hair, you need to eat the right food. Adding iron and biotin-rich food to your diet is your first step to having thicker locks. Food like beans, tofu, spinach and kale are great at promoting hair growth. Consuming lots of protein is also essential for healthy hair. Stock up your fridge with chicken, eggs, lean meat, seafood and low-dairy products, all of which are great sources of protein. If possible, only cook with coconut oil or olive oil and avoid processed foods. They may be delicious and filling but they will deplete vital nutrients from your body. Eating healthy not only benefits your hair but your overall body. There is no reason not to do it even if you are not prioritizing your hair.

Use Thickening Products

The most logical way to add volume to your hair is to use thickening shampoo and conditioner. These products use less conditioning components that tend to weigh down the hair giving it a stringy and thin appearance. Remember though, using these types of products just creates a good foundation for having thicker hair. It is not the end all be all solution. It just supplements the other hair thickening methods.

Massage Your Scalp

Massaging your scalp promotes blood flow and in turn nourishes the hair follicles. Do this before shampooing and for best results, you can use hair treatment oil to further stimulate the scalp. You can do this yourself or have someone else do it for you. Maybe your significant other? Either way, it feels good and you’re one step closer to having thick and beautiful hair.
