    Here are the Insider Secrets on How to Get Thick Hair

    Everyone wants a thick head of hair; the hard part lies in getting it. Genetics is often to blame for thin and wispy hair, but with so many tips and tricks out there it is easy to get fuller hair. Even if you have to fake it.

    You can get thicker hair naturally . . . medical science has shown that consuming daily key vitamins, like the vitamin B family, can help your hair grow thicker. Because hair is essential made of proteins, eating healthy will allow those nutrients to be absorbed and be reflected in hair growth. If you cannot get those nutrients in, try taking a daily multivitamin to supplement. Prenatal pills can also help stimulate thicker hair growth. Of course, you’ll want to talk to your doctor first to see what the right dosage is for you.

    Another way to get thicker hair is through care. Washing your hair daily is not necessary. In fact, many hair stylists recommend you skip a day to avoid stripping hair of key nutrients. However, you’ll find that skipping can leave your hair oily and lifeless. So on those days you skip wash, use a dry shampoo. Not only does it clean your hair and keep it fresh, it also adds volume and texture. All you need to do from there is run your fingers through it for a nice and tousled look.

    When brushing your hair, opt for a round brush. Start at the roots and work your way out to the end. The shape of the brush creates even volume for your hair throughout. If you need to blow-dry your hair, try doing so with your head slightly upside down. The direction of the air forces your hair the other way so that when you stand back up, it still hold some of it up, creating a look of a thick hair style.

    If all else fails, you can create an illusion of thicker hair. The best way to go about this is by creating volume. To do that, you should choose haircuts for thick hair, such as a haircut with long and multiple layers. Layers are perfect hairstyles for thick hair. This will allow you to curl or wave your hair so that it is not just one length and adds more dimensions to your overall style. If you have very thin hair, try to avoid straightening it.

    Not everyone is blessed with naturally thick hair, but there are many ways to get it, even if you have to fake it. Just remember to eat balanced meals, take care of your hair, and choose styles for thick hair that create the most volume. Keep trying out new styles to find ones that work best on you.

    1. Thank you for your comment. Natural methods are always recommended, and it is wonderful that shampoos and products were formulated for those that need a little more lift.

      Have a great hair day!

    2. There are some shampoos which can give you the illusion of thicker hair by lifting the hair shafts. There are some products made of hair fibers which can create a thicker hair illusion without much hassle. But, if possible get the natural thicker hair by eating food rich in zinc and other nutrients that are good for hair. It is always better to go natural than faking it. :)
