There are certain physical traits that we all desire, with thick hair being at the top of the list for a lot of people. The thickness of your hair is often determined by genetics but there are also steps you can take in order to improve the thickness of your hair. Below are some of the best ways to do this ( Tips for Thicker Hair ).

Eat a healthy diet

Diet plays a big role in the health of your hair. If you’re eating a lot of high fat, high sugar foods that cause inflammation in the body then your hair can easily suffer as a result. A healthy diet is one that consists of plenty of fruits and vegetables as well as foods high in omega 3 such as tuna and various types of nuts.

Eliminate stress as much as possible

Stress can come from many sources and it’s not always possible to control the amount of stress you’re subjected to. However, you should learn to deal with stress in a healthy way and not let it affect you emotionally. Stress can certainly cause hormonal changes in the body, which leads to hair thinning so take any steps you can to stay calm. Meditation is a great way to reduce stress in your life.

Stay hydrated

Your body needs water – not just to keep functioning but also to thrive and be healthy. A lack of water will affect many areas of your physical health, including the thickness of your hair so it’s always important to get enough water each day. Opinions do vary on how much water you should drink each day but around 2 litres would be considered a healthy amount by most.

Use a good shampoo and conditioner

The shampoo and conditioner you use can make a big difference to the appearance of your hair. There are many types of thickening shampoos on the market as well as conditioners. It’s a good idea to experiment and see which brands you like the best.

Avoid tight hairstyles

Tight hairstyles that cause a lot of tension and pulling on your hair can certainly cause it to thin out, especially around the temples. If you wear your hair in a ponytail and particularly have heavy extensions then it’s very possible that your hair will start to thin at the front of your head. Also if you’re a guy and have your hair in cornrows then be sure to take them out fairly regularly to avoid your hair from becoming thinner.
