How To Make Your Hair Thicker
What is hair thickness? First of all it is the quantity of follicles determined by heredity. Scientists determined that there are anywhere from 100 to 150 thousand follicles on a person’s scalp, and the rate of hair loss is about 100 hair strands a day. There are many causes for hair loss. Even if you do not use a hair dryer, do not dye your hair and do not do perms, hair density can be influenced by other factors. These factors include stress, illness, hard water, improper diet and environmental influences.
So what do you do to make your hair thicker and encourage its natural growth?
This can be achieved by influencing the hair by internal means (or from within). It could be that your hair density is affected by the lack of vitamins. Hair loves vitamins E, A, B, C which are contained in different foods. So it is very important to make these products a part of your daily consumption and to adhere to a certain diet plan. You can also buy readymade supplements which are aimed at improving the condition of the hair, skin and nails at a pharmacy or a health food store.
To achieve the density of the hair faster, you can go the other way – get hair extensions at a salon. There you will be offered hot or cold methods. How are they different? Hot method includes applying extensions using a special device and resin capsules. The cold method of applying the extensions includes using clips and glue. With proper care, hair extensions can last anywhere from two to six months. Therefore before getting the extensions, be sure to learn how to properly care for them.
Another way to quickly increase the density of your hair is to use artificial integrations, like streaks and strands. In this case you do not need a professional help, just use hairpins to attach them to achieve bigger hair volume in a few minutes. Artificial strands can be made of natural or artificial hair – natural are not as noticeable, they look naturally and have a healthy shine. Plus they can be treated just like your own hair for styling, perming and coloring.
Positive effect on the hair density has burdock oil. Some of the benefits of it use include improving the capillary circulation and strengthening and nourishing the roots and hair structure. Also, burdock oil helps to restore the metabolism of the scalp. Before using the oil, it is necessary to wash the hair with warm water and dry it with a towel. Burdock oil is rubbed into the roots first and then applied into the hair. Then the hair is covered with a plastic bag or a shower cap and wrapped with a towel. After an hour the mask must be washed off with a shampoo.
You can also utilize other oils for hair masks – they positively affect the health of your scalp and hair growth. In fact, many professionals recommend and encourage their use on an “as needed” basis.
It is also beneficial to regularly massage your scalp. It promotes blood circulation and hair growth. The massage can be done at home, using a special brush.
