4 Ways to Get Thicker Hair

Thinning hair is not fun. Especially when you’re trying to avoid hair loss. But there are ways you can thicken your hair. If you use these 4 tips, you won’t need to be envious of those thick haired friends of yours anymore. 

How to Improve Hair Density

1. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Treatment 

First and foremost, getting a simple treatment like PRP improves hair density without surgery or any side effects. PRP for hair restoration involves a simple injection of your platelets into the scalp. 

PRP will help increase hair density because it:

  • Increases hair thickness
  • Will trigger and maintain the hair growth phase
  • Decreases hair loss
  • Controls the hair growth cycle

2. Proper Nutrition 

Along with getting a PRP treatment, your diet also plays a large role in hair loss and getting thicker hair. Thin hair can even be a sign that you aren’t getting enough nutrients. Like any other part of the body, your hair needs a variety of nutrients to be healthy and grow.

To get thicker hair, your diet should consist of plenty of:

  • Healthy fats
  • Protein
  • Vitamins

To make sure you’re fitting these into your diet eat foods like:

  • Salmon
  • Eggs
  • Nuts
  • Healthy beans
  • Greek yogurt

Add 3-4 servings a week to improve hair health. As always, avoid foods with refined sugars and trans-fat. You should be eating enough healthy food that nourishes your body.

And don’t forget to make sure you’re getting the right vitamins. Iron, biotin, and vitamins A-E promote healthy hair growth. Although food is the best source, your diet may be low in these vitamins, so look for supplements if you need them.


3. Try Home Remedies 

In addition to proper nutrition, people like using foods as a hair mask. Foods such as eggs, avocados, and olive oil have been known to help thicken hair and strengthen it. These foods are high in protein, rich in omega3 acids, and vitamin E. It all goes back to your hair getting the nutrients it needs. 

4. Wash Smarter 

You’re giving your hair the nutrients it needs, and you’ve scheduled your PRP appointment. Something else you can do is think about the shampoos that you use. Sulfates can leave your hair dry, cause irritation, and encourage hair loss. Try a sulfate free shampoo or a shampoo that has a protein rich formula. Those should help increase hair density and avoid hair loss.

How to Avoid Hair Loss

 
There are some things you can avoid altogether to prevent hair loss and promote thicker hair:

  • Stress - It impacts so many parts of your health, including hair growth. Try to reduce stress as much as possible as it can contribute to hair loss.
  • Over washing – If you have thin hair, it’s recommended that you wash your hair no more than 3 times a week. Thinner hair needs more time to create oils that you need to brush through your hair.
  • Too much moisture – If you use lots of oil or moisturizing products in your hair, it can weigh your hair down and promote hair loss. Find the happy balance for your hair.

We hope you’ve found these four tips helpful in your journey back to enjoying thicker hair.
