Take Care of Your Scalp
The truth is, thicker looking hair is a result of your hair being healthy. And healthy hair really starts at the scalp of your hair. That being said, it’s time to make scalp care a larger priority for yourself. Experts suggest that starting by massaging and stimulating your scalp can be a massive help with this. When you massage your scalp it helps to get the blood circulating and boosting the growth/health of your hair. In addition, when you’re using hair care products it’s important to make sure that you’re getting the conditioning and moisturizing elements into your scalp as well!
Evaluate Your Hair Care Products
Another secret to thicker looking hair? Going sulfate free! Experts continue to reference how sulfates can cause buildup on your hair and scalp, leading to your hair being weighed down and not helping it to look thicker. Instead, when you go sulfate free it’s said to help you hair be relieved from that and have more natural volume because the sulfates aren’t weighing down your hair.
Back off on Too Much Heat
We’re all about using heated styling tools to achieve fun hair styles on a consistent basis, however there’s such a thing as using heat too often. Even if you practice healthy and safe heat practices, your hair needs a break. Heat causes the hair to be put under stress (even in the healthiest habits), when your hair becomes too stressed it can become brittle and dry-which is not going to help you achieve that thicker looking hair, it does the exact opposite. Make it a point to give your hair a break as often as possible from the heat. Use heat with caution, not every day and make sure that when you are using heated styling tools you’re keeping up with the healthy practices when doing so.
Focus on Moisture and Hydration
To have thicker looking hair, you need healthy hair and healthy hair is hair that’s well moisturized and hydrated. When our hair is lacking in this area it becomes fragile, brittle and dry looking (not exactly what thicker looking hair is made of). Which is why it’s so important to focus on making sure that your hair is consistently being conditioned, moisturized and hydrated. Drinking plenty of water, using a quality conditioning treatment and adding in a deep conditioning treatment weekly are all going to help you achieve this.
