Thick hair adorns both women and men. They lie more voluminous without additional styling tweaks and invariably arouse admiration among others. Unfortunately, the number of hair follicles is laid down at the DNA level, and thinning due to stress, regular dyeing or hormonal reasons deprives us of even what is given by nature. Here’s how to make your hair thicker with modern home care products.
CAN YOU MAKE YOUR HAIR THICKER AT HOME?
Salon treatments promise to do a lot, and they really do: the hair becomes thicker and denser after lamination and keratinization, and the boost-up adds volume from the roots. Is a home conditioner or shampoo capable of competing with professional services?
As the medical expert of the Vichy brand Ekaterina Turubara notes, most of the procedures in beauty salons are aimed not at restoring the structure and growth of hair, but at the visual effect. For example, after lamination, the hair looks healthy and luxurious, but remains itself under the polymer layer: thinned, weakened, brittle.
Home care, when used regularly, can really make hair thicker or thicker, not only visually – depending on what effect you want.
OBJECTIVE: TO MAKE HAIR THICKER, HEAVIER AND DENSER IN LENGTH
Ekaterina Turubara: “Filoxan-based products are suitable for thickening and thickening hair. This molecule goes deeper than the cuticle, reaching the cortex, where, due to hydrogen and disulfide bonds, it creates a kind of framework that thickens the fiber of the hair shaft. “
Also, do not ignore the sealing properties of oils and silicones. They act at the cuticular level, creating a film around the hair shaft.
OBJECTIVE: TO MAKE THIN HAIR THICKER AND MORE VOLUMINOUS
Ekaterina Turubara: “Modern technologies make it possible to achieve such a result. In particular, stemoxidin molecules stimulate new hair growth by awakening dormant follicles that have entered a prolonged state of dormancy due to stress, hormonal imbalances or environmental factors. The effect will not be instantaneous, new hair shafts will appear in about two months. It is important to start a course of treatment at the first signs of thinning, because after a few years, scar tissue forms at the site of the follicle.
What do trichologists propose to do to make the hair thicker or denser? The current approach presupposes complexity. For example, in parallel with the home course based on stemoxidin, procedures are prescribed in the clinic (mesotherapy, some laser techniques). While high-tech methods solve the problem from the inside, nothing prevents you from consulting with your stylist and learning how to make your hair thicker in the salon, albeit with a short, but pronounced result.
WHAT TO DO FOR THICKER HAIR: 5 WAYS
“I want thick hair – what should I do?” – this question generates multi-page discussion on forums. Each comment is an opinion based only on personal experience. Here are some universal practices that can make you happy with thick hair and how the most scientifically effective thicker treatments work.
FIND A SHAMPOO WITH A THICKENING FUNCTION
Can you make your hair thicker with just a cleanser? The result, of course, will be negligible. The principle of two-stage washing allows you to fully reveal the potential of the shampoo. When applied for the first time, the product will cleanse the scalp from impurities, and when applied again, the hair is saturated with useful components of the composition.
CHECK IF YOUR CONDITIONER PROTECTS AGAINST BRITTLENESS
Under the influence of various factors, from sunlight to dyeing, the hair shaft gradually becomes thinner and breaks off along its length. As a result, despite the normal functioning of the follicles, the density literally melts before our eyes. A rejuvenating rinse-off treatment will solve this problem.
TAKE A STEMOXIDIN-BASED COURSE TWICE A YEAR
Thin and “thin” hair can be made lush and thick, provided that sometime – before seasonal hair loss, a nervous period at work or before menopause – it looked much better than it does now.
TAKE ACTION AGAINST INCREASED HAIR LOSS
Loss of more than a hundred hairs a day is already an alarming symptom of the possible hardening of collagen around the hair follicle. Subsequently, connective tissue forms on this part of the scalp. Prevent collagen build-up before hair density is noticeably reduced.
MASSAGE YOUR SCALP REGULARLY
In order for hair to grow faster and not to fall out excessively, their follicles must receive a sufficient amount of oxygen, minerals and vitamins from the bloodstream. Self-massage normalizes the nutrition of the follicles and ensures their healthy functioning.
By the way, styling directly influences the microcirculation in the scalp. It is better to prefer comfortable free hairstyles to hair collected in a tight ponytail.
The first thing to do to keep your hair thick and beautiful (as part of your genetic program) is to check your diet. Perhaps it is too harsh or gives most of the diet to “fast” carbohydrates.
Lack of protein, fatty acids, B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, iron and antioxidant compounds is manifested in thinning and deterioration of hair. These substances are found in vegetables, herbs, fruits, nuts and meat products.
HOW TO MAKE HAIR THICKER AND HEAVIER: LIFE HACKS AND TIPS
Sometimes the hair is objectively thick, but so thin that the density is completely invisible. Especially often owners of curls and natural blondes face this problem. Three principles will change the condition of your hair forever.
THE HAIRCUT IS STILL APPROPRIATE
But not extremely short, but of medium length – up to the shoulders or shoulder blades. When hair is very long, it becomes thinner at the ends, strands and looks less thick. We have to come to terms with the idea that growing is really not for everyone.
Renew the cut once a month, then the hair will not have time to thin out, which will make it visually thicker and “thicker” without complex styling.
USE NOURISHING OILS
Products with oils in the composition slightly weigh down the hair and discipline it well, smoothing the cuticle. It seems that silicones work, they should not be feared in leaving either.
In order for the hair to be thick and dense, many turn to folk recipes that suggest mixing an oil hair mask on their own. Burdock oil and laurel ether (bey, piménta racemósa) are especially often used. Recall that such formulations are undesirable to apply to the scalp: they tend to clog the mouths of the hair follicles and cause allergies.
REFUSE TRAUMATIC PROCEDURES
Heat styling, bleaching and dyeing, as well as inaccurate combing, negatively affect the hair structure, damaging it. If you run the situation, brittleness will eventually lead to a decrease in density.
In some cases, it is difficult to do without styling with a styler or painting over gray hair. Then the damaged hair must be restored with care with amino acids and pro-keratin in the composition.
Trust your trichologist and clinically proven home care formulas for fuller, fuller hair.
