Who does not like thick hair? Thick, luscious hair is a reflection of your hair’s health. Thick hair refers to the circumference of each hair strand. The average thickness of any hair is 0.0003-0.0005 inches.

Anything less is considered as a thin hair strand. On the other hand, hair strands that are more than .0005 inches are considered to be very thick. This blog looks at how to get thick hair easily at home.

Is Thick Hair Good or Bad?

Thick hair can be both a boon and a bane, depending on how you manage it. For example, while thicker hair can be beautiful to look at, unmanageable hair can be quite a disaster. Things get more complicated when hair is both thick and curly. 

The curls get tangled and become difficult to manage. If you want to have thick hair, you must take care of your locks every day. A healthy diet, coupled with regular brushing, occasional oil massages and frequent shampooing and conditioning, are sure to make your hair strands thick and healthy.

Here are 10 easy tips to make your hair look thicker

  1. Brushing

    Brushing your hair at least two times a day not only removes tangles, but it also helps in improving the blood circulation of hair follicles. Improved blood circulation improves hair quality and thickness both. It also promotes hair regrowth.

  2. Shampooing

    Thick hair also depends a lot on having a clean scalp. A dirty scalp can clog hair follicles, hampering the growth of hair. Washing your hair with a gentle organic shampoo will not only clean your scalp but will also help in hair regrowth.

  3. Massaging

    Massaging your scalp improves blood circulation. Improved blood circulation will help in making your hair strands thicker, stronger and healthier. For better results, you can use organic virgin coconut oil or castor oil, which are loaded with vitamins. They also help in protecting the natural Keratin of the hair follicles. Keratin gives you naturally thick hair.

  4. Conditioning

    Hair needs conditioning every now and then. Shampooing can sometimes strip off the hair’s natural sebum or oil, making it dry and straw-like. After washing your hair, make sure to use a gentle, nourishing conditioner that will make your hair soft, supple and healthy.

  5. Diet

    Having a healthy diet can also promote hair thickness. Superfoods like avocado, nuts, coconut oil, onion and garlic can promote hair density and thickness, thereby making your hair stand out from others.

  6. Exercise

    Exercise does promote good health. But it also helps in achieving thick hair. Exercise releases certain hormones that are directly related to hair regrowth. 

  7. Hair care

    You must go for a deep conditioning hair treatment every now and then. In deep conditioning hair treatment, the hair care product enters deep inside the pores of the scalp. This not only conditions the hair follicles from within but also renders a protective cover on your hair.

  8. Organic hair products

    While not all hair products are bad, it is important to use organic hair products like shampoo and oil, to avoid allowing artificial chemicals on your hair. Organic products made from natural ingredients do make a difference.

  9. Hair style

    As simple as it may sound, restrictive hair styles such as tight braiding can damage hair follicles beyond repair. A hair style should be such that it does not harm hair strands.

  10. Hydration

    A large portion of the human body is made up of water. Not drinking enough water can dehydrate your body and also your hair. It can leave your hair dry, frizzy and lifeless. Drinking at least eight glasses of water can help in keeping your hair strands and skin fresh and hydrated.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
