Five Quick Steps To Achieve Hair Thickness

If your hair is thick but you did not have to do anything to get your hair where it is, then count yourself among the lucky ones. Some of us have to do the hard work to either make our hair thick or to keep it from thinning out. Having thick hair can be considered as a luxury and a must-have to some while some wonder what they will do with the huge mass of hair. If the former is you then here are 5 ways to grow your hair thick;

Massaging the scalp

Scalp massage stimulates the blood circulation and this in turn channels more nutrients to the hair roots. Blood flow to the hair cells means healthier hair growing out of your scalp. (Check out this article on scalp massage)

Moisture

When the hair is rich in moisture, it is a good environment for hair growth. Moisture can be infused by deep conditioning treatment, daily refresher ( especially in summer, it’s important to carry one to refresh your hair and scalp) (daily refresher as I call it is a spray bottle with 70%water, 20%leave-in-conditioner and 10%oil, shake the mixture very well and spray on your hair now and then), hot oil treatment and protein treatment. Each treatment depends on what your hair needs at the time. My two favorites are deep conditioning and hot oil treatment and I do them once a week.
Remember: dry hair leads to hair breakage/hair thinning and when this occurs the hair will lack growth.

Castor oil

Castor oil is an age-old remedy use in making the hair thick and it truly works. I add some into my shampoo, conditioner and then my daily refresher. I also have a bottle where I mix castor oil and olive oil and then use for my scalp massage and also apply to the length of my hair every two days.

Avoid products that dry out your hair

Like I said dry hair or scalp is not an enabling environment for hair growth. Some products can dry your hair. So after using a product instead of your hair to be silky and smooth there are a lot of friction causing it to snag and snap and then the amount of hair you lose after washing your hair, nah that’s not good.

    I would have said avoid products that contain sulphate or paraben (they don’t work for me) but some people can beat their chest and say products containing these ingredients work best for them. So instead when you use a product how it makes your hair feel determines if you should be using it again.

    Use a silk pillowcase/silk scarf

    Silk material are so friendly to the skin and hair and they will keep the moisture in your hair locked in unlike cotton that will seep out the moisture in your hair and cause friction that that leads to breakage and cause split ends.

    Conclusion

    Making the hair thick takes effort and consistency. Take pictures to compare results because sometimes our hair is actually growing and retaing the lenght and thichkness but because we have nothing to compare it with we won’t agree.
