Everybody would love to have longer, thicker hair – unless you’re the kind of person who prefers to have a simple bob, or one of the lucky ones blessed with amazing hair, that is. People like me who have fine, lank hair are always looking for ways to make it thicker and longer, but it’s rare that a solution actually works. The following tips and tricks really do work providing you practice them for a few weeks at least. Persevere with these tips and tricks and you’ll love the results:
Don’t Wash it So Much
Many people wash their hair everyday, or every other day. Washing your hair too much can actually strip it of it’s natural oils, meaning that it’s in less than perfect condition after a while. It’s rare that a person actually needs to wash their hair daily or every other day – this is only usually necessary for people with naturally greasy hair. Try washing your hair just twice a week and use dry shampoo in between washes. Your hair will soon get used to it and stop producing so much oil!
Treat it to a Hair Mask
You can buy all kinds of hair masks to slather onto your hair before bed, or you could even make your own using ingredients like eggs and mayonnaise! Apply a generous amount and then a plastic cap or cling film to leave overnight and wash off in the morning.
Use Hair Oil After Washing
Hair oil like Moroccan oil can get the hair in perfect condition! It can help to repair damage, stop split ends, add shine, and make your hair feel and look silky.
Consider Taking Supplements
Certain supplements can help to give your body what it needs in order to help your hair grow thicker and longer. For example, Hair Essentials for hair growth can be very effective. These supplements can also help your skin and nails sometimes too!
Use Products That Suit Your Hair Type
If you’re not suiting products to your hair type, then you can actually be doing it more harm than good. Find out your hair type, whether it’s fine, frizzy, dry, brittle, coloured, or something else and then use the corresponding shampoo, conditioners, and masks.
Invest in a Silk Pillowcase
Silky pillowcases can stop your hair getting split ends. You’ll wake up with good hair days much more often, and find your hair is a lot easier to manage and style.
Try Hair Extensions
Hair extensions are a quick, convenient way to make your hair look instantly longer. You can have these applied by a professional in a number of ways, or buy clip ins and apply them yourself. Both have pros and cons, so research them before going ahead with one.
Consult Your Hairdresser
Sometimes, your hairdresser may be able to cut your hair a certain way so that it appears longer or thicker than it really is. They can also apply colour in a clever way to make your hair look much fuller.
