Ever dreamed of thick, luscious hair? Us too. If your hair is fine, thinning, or just generally a bit flat, getting thicker hair can seem like a struggle. There’s plenty of products out there, but that doesn’t mean that they’re all good – if you’ve ever experienced sticky, weighed down hair from too much product, you’ll know what we’re talking about.
Luckily, we’re here to tell you what you do and don’t need. Keep reading to find out more about all the steps you need to get the hair of your dreams.
Scalp health is everything
We’re all guilty of having tunnel vision on our hair, but did you know that scalp health is just as important when you’re trying to get thicker hair? A clean, healthy scalp promotes healthier hair growth, which in turn results in thicker, stronger strands. One of our go-tos is the Davines Solu Sea Salt Scrub Cleanser. This scrub texture helps to exfoliate the scalp, removing product build-up, as well as stimulating the hair follicles, resulting in softer, healthier hair. The sea salt also adds subtle volume to the roots, creating the illusion of fuller hair.
Treatments are the one for infusing your hair with ingredients and benefits that you might not get from your normal shampoo and conditioner. If there’s one brand that we can always rely on, it’s Olaplex. The No.0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment has the highest dose of Olaplex technology to infuse your hair with all the goodness. Repairing bonds and strengthening the hair, this will help you on your journey to thicker hair.
Fake it ‘til you make it
We get it, looking after your hair can be a lot of maintenance, so if you’re just looking for a quick win, then a thickening spray is the answer. Our fave? The Bumble and bumble BB.Thickening Go Big Treatment. This ultra-fine mist adds volume, bounce, and thickness to the hair, without weighing it down or making it look and feel greasy. Try it for yourself, you won’t regret it.
Protect whilst you sleep
Although our bodies regenerate whilst we sleep, did you know that sleeping with your hair tied up or on a cotton pillowcase can actually damage your hair? Shocking, we know. Protecting your hair as you sleep has never been easier thanks to the Kitsch Satin Sleep Cap. The ultra-soft, satin material keeps your hair out of your face whilst also protecting it from friction, pulling, and tugging on your usual pillowcases. You’ll wake up with softer, stronger, less frizzy hair, and your hair styles will last for longer too.
We know by now that some of the best beauty results come from the inside out, and that’s certainly true when it comes to your hair. There’s so many supplements and gummies out there now that provide you with all the vitamins you need for healthier, stronger, and thicker hair, but our favourites are the OGs – Solgar. Their Skin, Nails, and Hair Tablets are packed full of ingredients such as zinc, copper, silica, amino acids, and vitamin C, which all help towards promoting healthy hair growth.
Use heat protection
Heat styling – it’s a love hate relationship. We love the looks it creates, but hate the havoc it can wreak on our strands. The happy medium? Heat protection. A must for if you regularly heat style your hair but still want it to be thicker and healthier, you need to make sure you’re using one every time. Pick up the Heat Protection Spray & Argan Oil Duo from Beauty Works. This duo will protect your hair and nourish it, all at the same time.
