There are limits to how thick any given person’s hair can get, but you can certainly increase the thickness of your hair. Using high-quality shampoo and conditioner, using coconut and/or castor oil (ideally left in overnight and then washed out – it could make your hair look greasy, so you might not want to have it in during the day), and getting good nutrition can all help. How to Get Healthy, Strong Hair has some more dietary and other tips.

Try the Tangle Teezer once and you’ll never use a comb again. Short, flexible bristles have give to them so they won’t pull out fragile hairs, says hairstylist Mia Santiago of Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger. You can even detangle wet hair: “If I used a paddle brush on my wet hair, I could make a voodoo doll of the hair that comes out,” she says.
Hi,I had lost my hair because of bad diets specially in-front of my head was terrible.It affected on my self confident badly.But I started to apply a combination of Castor oil(2/3)+ Coconut oil(1/3). I do it every 2 days and leave it for 2-3 hours on my scalp and then wash it with shampoo which has 5.5 ph and also rinse with mild water.Now after 2 months I can see miracle,new hairs are growing also my hairs are thicker.
Hi Paru, sorry to hear about this! I know it can be especially troubling. Please follow the tips and advice found in the article, it would be great if you could include protein rich food in your diet and also try the inversion method. Good luck,I hope it works for you.
There’s been a revolution in biology. Armed with powerful new tools, scientists are learning how to read the complex chemical languages of the body, including how to coin new treatments for hair loss.
The HRBR Clinic does employ medical therapies as part of their treatments, including Minoxidil (also known as Regaine) and Finasteride (also known as Propecia). The latter is the drug taken by US President Donald Trump to combat his own hair-loss and there have been concerns over its side-effects which can, at certain levels and in a small percentage of patients, include loss of sexual drive, swelling of hands and feet and dizzy spells.
Until then, one other great way to treat baldness is to embrace it, and choose the shaved head look. Research suggests this strategy could score you some serious street cred: people tend to assess smooth-headed baldies as both stronger and taller than their hair-brained counterparts.
Hi Em, I can only recommend the Inversion Method which states you should massage for 7 days every 4 weeks. Scalp massage is always beneficial, but for rapid growth I think you should stick to the 7 days and see how it works for you. Cutting out heat and eating a rich protein diet will certainly help.
Hi there, it’s really up to you. When I apply coconut oil and do the inversion method I do wash my hair every day, but if you don’t like doing this then you can use the oil only before days you wash your hair. I hope that makes sense!
I also remind my guests that this type of double process service must be done slowly and that they must commit to using Aveda’s Damage Remedy line at home to ensure the hair is at its healthiest. Healthy hair enables my guests to change their hair color more often.
Hi Meher, hair straightening treatment may help give the illusion that your hair is growing faster as it’s growing down straight rather than in a spiral but it won’t affect your actual hair growth rate. I would suggest giving the inversion method a try and seeing if it works for you.
If you want to repair split ends and hair fall, you can use a deep-conditioning method. Aside from speeding up the hair growth, your hair will become much softer. You can buy once at any local store or use mayonnaise. Simply, apply some the conditioning one into the hair and allow it to soak for about 20-30 minutes. Wash it off as usual with cold water. Repeat this method once a month.
What it does: Applied to the scalp, this liquid formula aims to improve circulation, ward off free-radical damage, and counteract hormonal activity that can have a slowing effect on your hair-growth cycle.
Your body needs water to work properly and to grow, and so does the hair. According to a research [3], drinking more water may be the easiest way to help your hair grow thicker. Try to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day to get the best results.
Like the cure for cancer, those new treatments aren’t nearly ready for prime time. But they’re coming, promises George Cotsarelis, MD, director of the Hair and Scalp Clinic at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
My hair is growing a bit I’ve been doing this since January and that time it’s was above my shoulder now it’s mid way length down my shoulder and it’s June. How long do you think it will take to get down to my back
i have really bad hair it breaks easy it is either to dry or to oilyand it so frizzy. i want long lush hair but it dosnt seem like its goning happen i will try these when i cananyway. have to keep hope 🙂
It’s definitely a color style that looks best on medium to long hair. Balayage always looks best when styled with loose, full-bodied waves. Use a color safe shampoo and conditioner to ensure that your color will last longer. And for those fun beachy waves, I’m a huge fan of all the Amika and Kenra products.
If you’re using heat tools every day whether that be hot irons or the hair-dryer, try to cut down on using them while you are doing the Inversion Method. Heat can weaken your hair so even just alternating or going an extra day without heat can dramatically improve the condition of your hair.
I would describe this look as a cross between a lob and an updated shag. I love how flattering the bang shape is on the face and how easy it can be to style if the wearer embraces their natural texture. It’s such a fun and modern look!
Washing too infrequently can also be harmful. People with thinning hair often find themselves more susceptible to dandruff and scalp conditions which can be avoided by regular (though not daily) washing.
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?
Instant hair thickeners are becoming widely available. Coloured sprays and creams can be used to colour the scalp and give the appearance of thicker hair. Another option is Nanogen, tiny keratin fibres which bind to your hair making it thicker, but wash off easily. These are a more flexible solution that transplants.
