These are just some of the many hairstyles you can try you on your thick hair. I hope they’ve inspired you to mix and match them or even create other styles! You have awesome hair. It’s your asset. Flaunt it!
I personally use a natural biotin shampoo made by a company called Jason’s. Biotin benefits include being known for hair fortifying and thickening, as it’s a B vitamin that helps with your hair, skin and nails — making all of them stronger. You can get Jason’s at Whole Foods, you can order online, but again this is a great brand. 
The drug was actually originally designed to treat transplant patients, to suppress transplant rejection and autoimmune diseases. Known officially as Cyclosporine A (CsA), it has been commonly used since the 1980s, and does, unfortunately, have many side effects. One of the least serious – but most interesting – of these is the fact that it can sometimes cause unwanted hair growth.
Disclaimer: What has worked for me may not work for you, but I found all these elements together helped my hair grow over an inch in a week and I also found a lot of new hairs on the crown and around my hairline.
Every mornin on an empty stomach have a glass full of carrot o beetroot juice. Do not brush ur hair when its wet. Also oil ur hair atleast 2 hours before ur bath. Have multivitamin supplements daily at nite before sleeping. Have a good haircut atleast every 4 months.
Well I tried the biotin thing to grow my hair which hasn’t worked and have bought some coconut oil but I’m only using it once a week also have started eating nuts as well. Have ordered some Lee Stafford hair growth stuff too I live in hope. I have had my hair cut short both sides because I had it in a style long one side short the other and I wanted it same both sides regret it massively now because I hate it so short.
Thick hair is a hairstylist’s best friend when it comes to event styling. Normally, we’d have to put padding or extensions to make the hair look thicker and do a lot of teasing. With thick hair, all you really have to do is curl and pin things in place!
Women who are pregnant may feel that their hair is actually growing faster. And women who have just had a baby may feel like they are losing their hair at a faster rate than normal. This is because during pregnancy, the hormone estrogen actually causes a woman to have a higher ratio of hair follicles in the growing phase. After the baby is born, hair follicles return to the “resting” phase, making it appear as if they are shedding hair.
I had chemotherapy and radiation for tonsil cancer about 10 years ago and I can’t get my hair to grow no matter what I’ve tried. I was told to try coconut oil and a regrowth hair product. Will it work or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated
I also believe protecting the head from sun exposure (UV) is important, as presented by Conklin. (Despite her spelling issues, I don’t think this issue should be discounted – and in her defense, I think her grammar issues are due to being a non-native English speaker. There might be some helpful knowledge in her post).
“Learning about your hair texture is so critical because then you can determine exactly what products you need for your hair,” explains celebrity hairstylist Vernon François, who works with Lupita Nyong’o. “This will inevitably lead you down the path to experiencing the best response from the products you use.”

I am dealing with hairline close to my forehead the hair just isn’t wanting to grow at all. Several people have said that my hair is damaged and fried an that there is nothing that I can do; I have been eating a ton of fruits and vegetables but I haven’t noticed a difference at all what more can I do for my hair, I am open to any suggestions or ideas that might help because I have been extremely embarrassed about my hair I’ve been walking around wearing a giant black headband.
When your hair is dry, do a dry brush from the head downward once every day. Use a wooden bristle brush that stimulates the scalp and pulls the natural oils produced at the top of the head down to the ends. This will naturally hydrate your hair.
Last year I chopped 10 inches off my hair and immediately panicked. What had I done? I’m sure you’ve had a similar, post-haircut moment of regret. I wanted a change, but I didn’t realize just how drastic it would be. As I reeled to figure out how to remedy this now irreversible situation, I recalled reading somewhere that hair grows an average of 6 inches a year…so regrowing those 10 inches could take me almost two full years! (And that’s not factoring in trims and breakage). I felt stuck without my hair and now had a new mission: to reclaim it.
Avoid applying essential oils directly to your skin. You can dilute the oil with a few drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil. Two other oils that may help include rosemary and peppermint oil. While the trials have been animal studies, results suggest that these oils may benefit hair growth.
Allow your hair to grow in its natural texture and color. Avoid dyes, highlights and chemical treatments. Any type of chemical applied to your hair will damage it and dry it out. Even natural hair lightening techniques, like using lemon juice, can cause your hair to fray.
“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.
You can also use a mixture of egg yolk, olive oil, and water to gather results of thicker hair. The three should be mixed well and applied all over dry hair. Leave this on for fifteen minutes and then rinse well followed by a light shampoo. Repeating this procedure a few times a week will offer results in a few weeks.
Hair follows a specific growth cycle with three distinct and concurrent phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Each phase has specific characteristics that determine the length of the hair. All three phases occur simultaneously; one strand of hair may be in the anagen phase, while another is in the telogen phase.
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.
I got my hair cut into a pixi cut last SUMMER! now only may do i have a half bob. GIVE ME HELp cause i cant buy any of these things and i desperatly need help. Can you estimate how long (in months ) itll take to get my hair to my shoulders?
About a year ago, I cut my hair into a short pixie cut and while I loved it, it was hard to manage and I soon started to grow it out. It was while I was on my search for hair-growing products, that I was recommended Lee Stafford’s Hair Growth range from a lady in a LUSH shop.
In fact, there’s about a hundred different great benefits of using fish oil or cod liver oil.The truth is that your internal health can appear on your skin, and if you take fish oil internally as a supplement, it may be as good as or better than applying conventional moisturizers. Therefore, I recommend that you take about one tablespoon a day of cod liver oil or fish oil — in between 1,000–3,000 milligrams a day would be sufficient.
Hi Cindy I’m not too sure really it depends on your normal hair growth rate and whether these tips personally work for you.Why don’t you give them a go and make sure you keep a record of your length of hair every few weeks?

Hi, is was wondering if you have any further recommendations that aren’t listed in the previous reading? I’m trying to get my hair to grow six inches in less then 3 months so I was hoping you might have a further explinination or list of foods that might benafit my hair? Reply soon:D
In most people, scalp hair growth will halt due to follicle devitalization after reaching a length of generally two or three feet. Exceptions to this rule can be observed in individuals with hair development abnormalities, which may cause an unusual length of hair growth.

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.
My was really good and healthy 3 years ago. with time I started ironing my and using heat a lot so my is thinning its weak and I also feel like its lifeless (although its not). I started growing it by using natural oils and it did work but my hair is naturally oily and it made more oily and greasy but I did not care because it worked but at some point my hair stopped responding to the natural oil treatments and i also tried watching my diet but I think I was doing it wrong. When I see my hair 3 years back it was so healthy it was not oily or greasy it was thick. I hope you can tell me about more treatments!!!

Just a thought to all of those posting with thinning hair. First, have a blood test. Be sure your thyroid is not off wack. This solved part of my problem. But, my hair was damaged from weaves and stess. Now my hair is shoulder length, I insist on only 5 foils when I need a bit of a color lift. Hairdressers (if the are good), will do this for you at a reduced rate. On a trip to France I started using L’occitane hair repair shampoo in the hotel. My hair was thicker. Came home and started using their products for damaged hair. Expensive, but worth it. But, better still….I tried the banana & oilve old hair mask a month ago. This is even better (in terms of results) than L’occitane hair products. Now I use the banana, oilve oil hair mask a couple of times a week. It is simple and inexpensive. Forget the hair extensions. I am 65 and my hair is thicker and healthier than it was in my 40’s. I have fine blond hair. I have tried 100′s of products. Some hairdressers over process. (if you ask for a weave, ask for 5 foils, not a partial or full weave) avoid over processing. And, do not use that hot flat iron on your hair.
My hair actually changes color. It is sometimes red, sometimes brown, and sometimes blond. I don’t know what color it is. It’s naturally very curly, but not ringlets, spirals. It is very, very, soft. It’s not thick or thin. But ever since I was a child I wanted really, really long hair. But it always stops and gets course once it’s a centimeter above my elbow. It just always stops. And I want to grow it long for once. I don’t really know much about hair care, am low budget, and don’t have much time. I’m vegetarian, and I’m a competitive swimmer, so I have to swim in chlorine 5 days a week. I’m clueless! Please help!
