6 Proven Ways To Make Your Hair Look Thicker
Hair feeling a bit.. lacking?
By the age of thirty-five two-thirds of all men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss, and by the age of 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.
It’s not just men.
21 million American women currently suffer from some form of alopecia. 12% of women with hair loss pursue restoration treatment, as compared with 20 percent of male alopecia sufferers.
80 percent of women will also experience noticeable hair loss by the age of 60
Here’s what you can do to make your hair look thicker.
1. Choose the right shampoo and conditioner.
Go for “volumizing” or “thickening” products.
These are made to work without weighing down your hair, so you can get a fuller look.
For added insurance against limp locks, apply conditioner mainly to the ends rather than your scalp.
2. Style smart.
Again, look for mousses and gels geared toward building volume.
To give the most oomph to thin strands, blow-dry your hair until it’s only a little damp, then apply a styler at the roots.
This also keeps hair from sticking to your scalp, which makes thinness more obvious.
3. Find a great barber or stylist.
Exactly how this pro works her mane magic depends on your hair type, texture, personal preference, and pattern of hair loss.
She might blunt the ends of your hair to make them look thicker, for example, or leave your hair longer in some areas to help disguise trouble spots.
But the bottom line is that the right haircut can make a big difference for you.
4. Switch your part.
If you’ve always worn your hair parted on the left, try shifting it to the right or center.
After years of lying in the same direction, a switch will help lift your hair away from your scalp.
5. Consider coloring
Not only do the dyes on your strands help thicken them, but the right shade can make the contrast between your hair and scalp less obvious, which draws attention away from thinning.
Talk to a pro to be sure you use the right shade. If you prefer to do the job yourself, ask your regular stylist for tips on how to get the same results with at-home color.
It’s key to have a plan for upkeep, since hair color can make hair loss stand out if your roots are too noticeable.
Not keen on all-over color? This might be the time to try highlights, which need less upkeep.
6. Fill up with fiber.
If you have mild to moderate hair loss, fiber hair cosmetics can be a quick fix for adding volume.
These products use statically charged fibers that you sprinkle over your hair to make it look thicker.
Most of them come in a few different shades to match your color and will stay on until you shampoo them out.
If you are not completely bald and have some hair, hair fiber can work magic
(Just a warning though…. this won’t work in FRONT of the hair, and is designed primarily for the top / crown of the head)
