So You Want Thicker Hair… Now What?

Hair Care

If you have been born with naturally thick, luscious hair, then this article is not for you. For the rest of us who were born with straight, limp, lifeless hair, then this article is going to help save your ‘do and give you a whole new look.

As some women age, they also tend to have their hair thin out, which can be noticeable and embarrassing if you have been known to have thicker hair in the past. Here are some of the best ways to add some extra volume and “oomph” to your lifeless tresses:

Request to Have a “Thicker Look” when you get your Hair Styled

Here’s the easiest way to get that thicker look back: ask for a hair style that will help give you that look! Any professional hair dresser will know exactly what sort of hair styles will help add some extra volume and bounce to your hair, and they will be able to easily create the illusion of you having thicker hair by cutting and styling your hair a different way.

Hairstylists will often add in some extra layers, which will help give your hair more body and better shape. Bob-style haircuts will also help give you the appearance of having fuller and thicker hair.

Try Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a great solution for anyone who has the patience and foresight to give themselves thicker hair. It may take a while to see results, but you will definitely see the results in a few short weeks.

This method is rather simple. All you need to do is to take the aloe vera and squeeze it into your scalp. Massage the aloe vera into your hair, focusing on getting it into the roots of your hair, and slide the gel down to the very tip of your strands of hair. Leave the aloe vera in your hair until it has dried up completely, and the wash it out with your usual shampoo and follow up with a conditioner.

As an alternative or a follow up to the treatment, choose to use shampoo and conditioning products that contain a fair amount of aloe vera.

Eat Well

The best way to make you look better on a whole is to eat a nutritious and balanced diet. What and how well you eat will be shown by your hair. If you know that you aren’t getting enough of those essential vitamins and minerals on a daily basis, choose a quality multivitamin and take the recommended dosage every day. It doesn’t take long to pop a small vitamin into your mouth, and it will benefit many different areas of your life.

Try Mixing Baking Powder with your Conditioner

Adding just a bit of baking powder in with your conditioner can give your hair that extra volume that it really needs. Take a teaspoon of baking powder and mix it into with your conditioner. Shake the bottle so that the two are thoroughly mixed, leave the conditioner in your hair for at least 2 minutes, and then rinse it out as usual.
