Avoid heat styling tools. Use blow dryers, straight irons, and curling irons sparingly. Overusing heated hair appliances causes your hair to become dry and brittle, making it fall out much more easily.
Thick hair is something more people would like to have. Whether your hair is long or short, having thick hair just seems to look better. Your hair may be thin depending on a number of reasons, but there is no reason why you can’t get thicker hair naturally. Climate is a big reason people have different thicknesses of hair. In colder climate hair tends to be thinner, while in warmer regions hair is often thicker.
Most importantly, avoid any yo-yo dieting or fasting programs. Any change in diet or low protein intake will unnecessarily weaken the shaft as well as stress the follicle, which can lead to hair loss.

If you need your bob layered to remove volume, but miss having a curvy beautiful feminine profile, you can get convex layers. These layers follow the shape of your head. It can give you the feeling of having a stacked haircut, minus all the crazy volume. The line on this bob is incredible. It is curved and very precise.
The researchers found that of the nine patients with iron deficiency anemia, eight had telogen hair loss. The mean ferritin (a protein in the body that binds to iron) level was statistically significantly lower in patients with diffuse telogen hair loss than in subjects without hair loss. The study suggests that women with an iron deficiency are at a higher risk of hair loss, and serum ferritin levels below or equal to 30 milligrams/milliliter are strongly associated with telogen hair loss.

HI I always tried to have long hair but then I cut it short and now it’s mid length, I want my hair to grow at least 3 inches please are their any home remedies that I can try, or are their any hair masks I can get to make it grow faster.?
Hi Mal, thanks for getting in touch! Getting regular trims are essential for healthy hair growth, plus if your hair is dry and split ended then it’ll only appear shorter even if it is growing. I would get a trim about 1-2 inches to tidy up your ends then use a moisturising oil on your hair every week. Are you using hot tools and how often are you washing your hair?
In a 2013 study, researchers evaluated the role of zinc status in each of the four types of hair loss, including alopecia areata, male pattern hair loss, female pattern hair loss and telogen effluvium. In all of the hair loss patients, the mean serum zinc was significantly lower than the control group. The analysis of each group showed that all groups of hair loss had statistically lower zinc concentration, especially the alopecia areata group. The data led to the hypothesis of zinc metabolism disturbances playing a key role in hair loss. (2)
Studies show that women with an iron deficiency are at a higher risk of hair loss, and serum ferritin levels below or equal to 30 milligrams/milliliter are strongly associated with telogen hair loss. Low serum zinc levels have also been linked to alopecia areata cases.
best to apply pure coconut oil almost every day in a week except a day and have a head bath , use of shampoo frequent also to be avoided it contains much of chemicals , avoid hair dryer it weakens the hair cells use egg on hair let it for sometime and rinse nothing harm using egg
Didn’t we tell you to be careful of layers? They can hurt as much as they help. Case in point: In an attempt to take out some of your massive hair’s weight and girth, a stylist chomped at your locks with one of these tools, leaving them frizzier and damaged.
I lost a lot of my natural curls and hair, after internal bleeding, gallstones and just being sick. After throwing away my blow dryer and air dryer my hair over night, it started growing in again. The new undergrowth has returned curly but the rest is wavy at most… any tips to getting my curl back w/o perms and chemicals? It has been almost 2yrs, my hair is almost 3ft. Long
For this look, I recommend using a heat protectant, weightless volume, shine serum, and a light hold hairspray. I specifically used these Aveda products: Brilliant Damage Control, Phomollient, Light Elements Smoothing Fluid and Air Control Hairspray.
Direct sun exposure is the best way to absorb vitamin D, plus you can detox your body with the sun. Sit in the sun for roughly 10–15 minutes to absorb about 10,000 units of natural vitamin D. Topical application of vitamin D might also play a role in the restoration of hair cycle dysfunction in patients with alopecia areata. To increase your vitamin D levels with food sources, eat vitamin D-rich foods like halibut, mackerel, eel, salmon, whitefish, swordfish, maitake mushrooms and portabella mushrooms.
Hello, I have been struggling with my hair for about 4 months now. Back in May I had decided to go back to my natural hair color from being platinum blonde. My natural is an ashy dark dirty blonde. Unfortunately doing it at home was my first mistake, and I ended up with red hair. I went to my old high school which has a salon with students working in it, which was my second mistake. They got my hair to a more manageable color but cut off around 3-4 inches when I only wanted 1 inch off. I was devastated.. and my hair was very very dry and thin and lifeless everywhere except about 5 inches on the top of my head. Since then I have added a lot more blonde highlights to get closer to my natural color as it wasn’t going a weird orange red color from the previous red dye. It has gotten a lot more moisturized and feels much less dry since then, but regardless is still very stringy and lifeless looking and very hard to style and maintain volume. The natural state of my hair has never been very volumous , but when I had bleached it the texture changed and it felt a lot thicker. I desperately want that hair back but cannot bleach my hair in this state.. so the only thing I can really do is grow it all out again till I have my natural 100% hair back to bleach it again , with caution to have minimal damage. I have been taking hairbrush vitamins, a b-complex vitamin, as well as trying to drink more water and eat more of the right foods. I’ve also recently started doing a castor oil and coconut oil leave in treatment, which has made it feel stronger. Do you have any advice for me? I am just so desperate to feel some weight to my hair.. it feels like air when I move my head back and forth and doesn’t even feel like it’s there. I also have parts on the top of my head on the right side that got burned off from bleaching back in January this year, they have grown about 6 inches out now but look very odd and stick out unless I straighten them with light heat. I don’t straighten any other parts of my hair anymore as I used to every day and that definitely contributed to the damage I face now. I used to have such beautiful long healthy hair and my confidence has mostly diminished because of all this. I am just desperate to feel like myself again. Thank you for taking the time to read 🙂
Oh no sorry to hear that, how frustrating for you! I definitely recommend the scalp massage using some natural oils like coconut or olive oil. Try this every day for 5 minutes once a day for a week and let me know how you get on.
Hi Lamont. Wow, it sounds like you have been doing all the right things and achieved some really fantastic results by doing so! We’re so glad to hear you’ve found a solution that really works for your hair. Please do keep us updated – we love hearing hair-success stories!
Hi Charity. It sounds like your hair needs some nourishment! All is not lost, though, coconut oil should soon sort you out. I’d recommend using coconut oil a few times a week, regular trims (to keep your hair healthy and from splitting, which will lead to it shortening) and finally the inversion method to stimulate hair growth. I hope this helps 🙂
Hi Taylor. I would say, from personal experience, the inversion method is the most effective for hair GROWTH. If you want to maintain your hair health and growth, I would advise a coconut oil treatment too as it nourishes the hair and keeps it healthy. I hope this helps 🙂

Another option is to mix one-quarter cup of warm water in one-half cup of Indian gooseberry powder and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Apply the paste on your hair and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off. Do not shampoo your hair for a few hours. Follow this remedy every few weeks.
Some advice that I would give is that this haircut works best with thick hair. Also, make sure to go to the right person to cut your hair because it has to be well proportioned depending on a your face shape and structure.
If you want an asymmetric look for your bob but aren’t ready to commit, wear one side behind your ear. It will give the illusion of an asymmetric haircut. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be ready to visit your hairstylist and actually get the haircut.
Oral zinc compounds have been used for decades for treating disorders such as telogen effluvium and alopecia areata, forms of hair loss, because zinc benefits hair follicle health. Zinc is an essential co-factor for multiple enzymes and is involved with important functional activities in the hair follicle. Zinc is also a potent inhibitor of hair follicle regression, and it accelerates hair follicle recovery. Studies suggest that some alopecia areata patients have zinc deficiency, and oral zinc sulfate therapy serves as an effective treatment.
On the 20th of December 2017, I was playing with my short, dried hair (which was on average 1 inch) in the front of my head but I accidentally tangled it so bad that I had to cut it off with a pair of stationnary scissors. It is very noticeable when I have a high ponytail but you can’t see it when I have a low ponytail when it is split down the middle. Luckily it’s quite small (2.5cmx1.5cm) but I’m scared that it might not grow back. Do you think it will grow back and if so, what do you recommend for my hair?
“Rough-dry your hair until it’s about 80 to 90 percent done,” says Santiago. “That’s superimportant for people with really thick hair; otherwise you’re going to be there forever. Once it’s almost dry, then attach the smoothing nozzle to your dryer, making sure it’s always facing the end of your shaft to smooth it out.” Rough-drying does work better for straight- and slightly wavy-haired gals though. “If you’re prone to a lot of frizzing or your hair is supercurly, rough-drying can open up the cuticle too much. Get the nozzle on a little faster if that’s your hair texture.
“In the late 1980s, the standard of care was to take large grafts, plugs of 12 to 20 hairs, and implant them,” he says. “It would give either a very good or acceptable result. But some men, as they got older and lost some more hair, they got that doll’s-hair or corn-row phenomenon: Little poles of hair jutting out.”

According to a research about the effects of stress on your hair [2], stress can be one of the main causes of hair loss. So, you should try to calm down your life, and you will find that your hair starts growing thicker. For example, you can try meditation that may help you find how to deal with your stress better.
“Obviously, if you have thick hair, regular elastics aren’t going to cut it,” says Santiago. But you also need to stay away from anything with a grip or plastic that will get caught in your massive hair and pull it out. Thin and flat fabric hair ties, like Emi-Jay’s, are going to have more staying power and won’t break or dent your giant hair. “Those fat Heathers-style scrunchies would work too, and I wish they were cool—but they’re not,” says Santiago.
