This is for the people who don’t have glam squads or extensions to be maintained. Hair thickness can be an issue if you don’t take good care of your hair. Here are some tips to point you in the right direction.

1. Don’t Stress

Having thick hair is genetic, but thinning can be related to stress. Remember to take a breath from time to time and exercise. Stress can exacerbate hair thinning.

2. Eat Right

I’m sure we have all heard the quote, “you are what you eat.” This does hold some truth. Staying focused and having a healthy diet can have a huge effect on your hair. Your hair gets its nutrients from your food. The Kingsley clinics found that specifically eating 120 grams of protein at breakfast and lunch is ideal for keeping hair strong.

3. Style Smart

You can fake thicken your hair. Stay away from oils and hydrating products because they weigh down your hair. Getting highlights can make your hair look thicker because it adds texture. Make sure not to over do it because it can cause breakage to your hair.

4. Don’t Ignore Your Scalp

Treatment for hair thinning should not only improve the appearance of the hair but optimize the scalp. Using a deep conditioning mask once a week can moisturize your scalp and protect your hair follicles.

5. Look For These Products

Products with parsley extract increase blood to the scalp and stimulate hair grown. Biotin and moisturizing vitamin B are another great set of products you can buy and use.

With these tips, your hair will stay luscious, full, and healthy.
