Here at ZALA, we love all kinds of hair. Short hair, long hair, straight hair, curly hair, wavy hair, fine hair, thick hair. Name it and there’s a hundred percent chance that we love it–as long as it’s healthy of course.
That said, we do understand the longing for another type of hair apart from your own. How many fine-haired folks in here have wanted to get thicker hair, even just once?
We covered an article before on how to make your hair thicker, or at least appear to be, using styling and hair extensions. In this article though, we’ll be sharing some tips on how to get thick hair the right way!
1. Eat foods that promote hair growth
We’ve said it time and time again: real beauty starts from within. That’s why we have listed ‘foods’ at number one in our tips on how to get your hair thicker. You should always stick to healthy food as much as you can. If you’re not a big fan of fruits and veggies (don’t worry, we totally understand), you have to try your best to at least incorporate a couple of them into your regular diet. By eating foods that promote hair growth, you’re helping your hair immensely.
2. Pop some vitamins
You might also want to consider taking some vitamins that specifically promote hair growth. Vitamin E, for example, can help improve the condition of your hair, skin, and nails after consistent doses. Of course, you can also opt to just get all your nutrients and vitamins from food. But if you really want to get thick hair, a vitamin E supplement may help you achieve your goals easier and faster.
3. Don’t forget to deep-cleanse
It sounds a little disgusting, but your hair could look fine and thin if it gets matted by too many products or worse, too much dirt from around you. Of course, dirt and product buildup on our hair is unavoidable, but that’s why we should always wash our hair properly in the shower and schedule a deep-cleansing session at least once a week. Not only can it make you feel much lighter and fresher, it can also help your hair grow better since it’s no longer bogged down by so much rubbish.
4. Use DIY home remedies
In addition to deep cleansing, you should also consider treating your hair on a regular basis in order to moisturize and nourish it. Hair that’s well-nourished grows much faster and better than hair that’s terribly dehydrated. This doesn’t mean that you have to go to the salon weekly just to undergo expensive treatments though. You can check out our short list of easy and cheap DIY home remedies that you can start doing as soon as possible.
5. Brush regularly
Our last tip on how to get thicker hair naturally is probably also the hardest to believe: brush your hair regularly to get thick hair! What? It’s as simple as that? Well, of course not, but brushing your hair regularly, especially with a non-plastic paddle brush, has so many advantages that a lot of people are missing out on. For one, brushing your hair regularly distributes the natural hair on your scalp to your shafts, which not only helps protect your hair from damage, but also locks in moisture to your strands.
