Who does not desire long, lush and voluminous hair? All of us do! Having beautiful and thick hair does not mean spending thousands of dollars, it means making a few adjustments that can improve the general health of your hair. In this article, we have compiled a few tips to get the thickest hair ever with easy, less time consuming and pocket-friendly ways to reach that goal.
Watch out your diet
This is my number one tip. Eat right, and your skin and hair will thank you for it. Proteins, veggies, and fruits should be your best friend if you want thick and voluminous hair. You can apply products meant to add thickness to your hair but dealing with a problem on the surface will not give you a longer lasting solution. You need to get your hair cells and follicles healthy from deep within you, and there is no better way to do that than eating a healthy diet full of proteins, vitamins, and essential carbohydrates.
Be smart when washing your hair
When it comes to getting thick, lush hair, it is not the diet you should watch out for only; you need to get all your hair caring basics straight. Most of us lose hair luster, elasticity, and volume in this process. First, you are not supposed to rub your hair over vigorously when washing. You have to be gentle and use less product as much as possible. Doing the things we are against, strips all your essential natural hair oils that are responsible for keeping your hair healthy and strong. Therefore, wash your hair at least twice a week. This gives your hair time to grow and add volume.
Be mindful in your hair care routine
Another thing to watch out for is your general hair care routine. When do you trim your hair? How do you trim it? How do you comb, style, brush and dry your hair? All these things often get overlooked, but they contribute greatly to making most of us lose lots of hair in a short period which is the exact opposite of what we are trying to achieve. You need to be extra gentle when combing your hair or brushing your hair. If you have no idea how trimming is done, get someone else to do it for you.
Trimming rids your hair of split ends which is a contributing factor to hair breakage. Be careful when styling your hair too. Try to use processes or products that guarantee less hair loss and breakage. Lastly, you do not need to blow dry your hair whenever it is wet. Blow drying drys out your hair making it weak and feeble prone to breakage. The best solution is to air dry your hair. This gives your hair freedom to grow healthy with thickness and strength.
Pamper your hair
Pampering your hair means giving your hair the best there is you can afford. Condition your hair often with homemade masks like avocado masks, egg masks and essential oils like coconut oil, almond oil, and olive oil because conditioning often gives your hair life, thickness, and strength. The more natural the products on your scalp are, the better. Manufactured products have their disadvantages, so it is always best to choose nature over processed products anytime.
Another important thing is massaging your scalp. This tiny act is beneficial to your hair simply because it facilitates blood circulation to hair follicles enhancing growth and general health of your hair. When all these things are in place, you are guaranteed healthy, strong and thick hair that is not prone to breaking or drying.
Choose less damaging hairstyles every time
Pulling your hair tight, tying your hair in knots will all weaken even the strongest of hair. Go for hair styles that minimize hair stress. Stressful hair styles like extreme braiding and subjecting your hair to harsh styles that require lots of heat will damage your hair and reduce its thickness and volume. Instead be gentle. No one is against you having the style you want but be careful not to overdo it. Free flowing hair that is thick, healthy and strong will be anyone’s choice at the end of the day. If this is your goal, then stay out of hairstyles that add nothing to your goal.
Everyone can have the hair of their dreams. What separates the people who have thick, lush hair and the people who do not have thick, lush hair is not doing things that make their hair reach this beautiful goal. If you want to look gorgeous, turn heads then follow the tips above and see how your hair will be transformed in a matter of weeks!
