Many of us dream of swishing around a beautiful, healthy, thick mane of hair. Unfortunately, achieving such a head of hair can be challenging, and we’re often left unsatisfied with the look, feel, and texture of our locks.
That’s where we come in to help. From healthy tips and tricks to follow to some fantastic volumizing hair product recommendations, here’s everything you need to know about growing thick and long hair the right way.
We know, we know. You’ve heard it all before. Eating a healthy diet contributes to healthier hair, skin, and pretty much everything else.
But what you eat has such a huge impact on your appearance that it must be mentioned.
If you’re an avocado fanatic, you’re in luck. A diet crammed full of healthy fats like avocado works wonders for growing lovely, thick, healthy locks.
While genetics affect hair texture and curl, our diet plays a significant role in how our genes are expressed. Be sure to consume plenty of good-quality protein and healthy fats, including olive oil and Omega 3. So, be sure to keep ordering those scrummy olive-oil-heaped salads.
Use the Right Shampoo and Conditioner
Different hair types need specific products that are designed to their needs. So, if your hair is feeling a little too flat, reach for volume-building shampoo and conditioners that cater to fine hair. The right products can enhance the appearance of thickness and add shine for that bouncy, catwalk-style mane many of us strive for.
We love Revitalash’s Thickening Shampoo and Thickening Conditioner. The shampoo is a unique thickening and scalp therapy formula packed full of specialized ingredients to enhance scalp health by cleansing and fortifying the hair. The phyto-infused solution is rich in therapeutic ingredients that improve scalp health, fortify the hair cuticle, and boost hair shaft thickness. Use the shampoo regularly for fuller and thicker-looking hair.
Team the shampoo with the conditioner for the best results. Like the shampoo, the thickening conditioner optimizes scalp health. It does this by hydrating and nourishing the hair while defending it from environmental stressors.
The conditioner is also phyto-infused and rich in therapeutic ingredients, enhancing hair shaft thickness and nourishing the hair cuticles. With consistent use, the hair is left hydrated and replenished with plenty of oomph.
Not only that, but both products are fragrance-free, which means they’re even kinder to your hair.
Don't Over Wash
We’ve all been there – a quick workout in the gym, and our hair is drenched with sweat. It looks like another hair wash day, then.
But, too much of a good thing can harm your hair. While it’s tempting to give your locks a good wash frequently, there’s nothing better for shine and health than the hair’s natural oils.
If you feel like your hair is getting greasy, distribute the natural oils gently brushing your hair. If you can, avoid washing every day and try to go every few days. Trust us; your hair will love you for it.
It’s easy to reach for the hairdryer when your hair is soaking wet, and you need to leave the house, or the ghds when your go-to hairstyle is perfectly styled curls. But heat styling irritates dry and breakage-prone hair.
If you’re a lover of heat on the hair and you find your locks are thinning, it’s time to ditch the straighteners, curlers, and hairdryers. Or, at the very least, try to reduce your use.
Try giving air-drying a go. The chances are your hair will grow at a much quicker rate, and it will look far healthier and fuller too.
If you need to apply some styling to your hair, try investing in some leave-in products to use on your hair post-shower. And if there’s no escaping the heat, be sure to use a heat protectant before using hot tools.
Opt for a Volumizing Mousse
A volumizing mousse can do a lot for limp, fine hair in need of a boost. Reach for RevitaLash’s Volume Enhancing Foam, an innovative hair enhancer created to volumize fine and thinning hair for both men and women.
The formula features proprietary BioPeptin Complex® that boosts hair vitality with a breakthrough formula designed to intensify natural volume. What’s more, the clean, lightweight solution adds plenty of shine and body to the hair, leaving it looking luscious.
Brush From Ends to Roots
Finally, our last tip is in the way you brush your hair. So much breakage can occur at the fault of your hair-brushing technique, so it pays to learn how to brush the right way.
Be sure to use the ‘bottoms-up’ method as well as tools that aren’t too rough on your hair. Detangle from the bottom up, beginning at your ends rather than your scalp.
When you brush your hair from the bottom up, you’re working with less surface area to untangle at a time. And as always, be gentle on your ends, as that’s where the breakage comes from.
