How To Make Your Thin Hair Thicker
Vitamins That Can Help To Give You Thicker, Fuller Hair
In order to achieve thicker hair, there are a number of vitamins that can be taken to help with the process. Keep in mind that there is no "quick fix" when it comes to actually having the thick hair. I will talk later about how to make hair look thicker. But to actually have it, takes some time. Usually you will see no visible results for up to 4 months. Sometimes you will notice a difference after 6-8 weeks, but the "norm" will be after you have taken the right vitamins, religiously that is, for a number of months. Vitamin deficiency can play a huge role in hair loss for women.
Also keep in mind that there are a number of other factors that could be playing into your thin hair problem. You have genetics. A lot of times, thin hair is coming from your genetic make-up. But, you also have stress that could be playing a role, certain medications, or possibly even your thyroid could be affecting your hair. Whatever the reason though, there are still things that you can do to help.
Vitamins To Take For Hair Loss
I will break down some of the most important vitamins for your hair. Vitamins that are the key to healthy hair. But first, there is a product that has all of the vitamins already in it that I believe to be the best quality. This particular product made by Sugar Bear Hair.
There are a couple of reasons why I am particularly fond of these vitamins. First of all, there are no hormones in them. Secondly they do NOT contain gluten, dairy, or gelatin.
They also taste yummy!
More options definitely to consider:
Prenatal Vitamins. Prenatal vitamins usually contain many of the vitamins that play a role in having thicker hair. But you must always remember quality. The quality of the vitamins you take makes a huge difference, no matter what your reason for taking the vitamin is. Always do your research before you purchase anything.
With the amazing power of Google, you can find just about any information on any item that you need, including reviews. I love to read reviews because you are getting the opinions of real people like me and you, that have already taken the product. This will be key in deciding what brand you would like to try.
A little bit better break down of the vitamins.
Vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Antioxidants will always improve the thickness of your hair. Vitamin E improves the scalp circulation.
Vitamin A. This another antioxidant.
Fiber. Most people do not realize that fiber does play a role in having a good head of hair. Fiber is good for your digestion, and keeps your body healthy. This will in turn help your hair too.
Vitamin B Complex. I can not even go into enough detail about vitamin b complex. This helps so many things in our bodies, including our hair. Vitamin B will help with your mood and metabolism, both of which too affect your hair. If all you can afford to buy is one vitamin at a time, make it the vitamin b complex. Do your research on this, and you will without a doubt see why.
Flax Seed Oil. Well, I guess you should get a second job if you can only afford to buy one vitamin, because you really do need this one too. Again, not only because of your hair, but flax seed oil can benefit almost every system in your body. People taking flax seed oil greatly reduce their risk for getting colon and breast cancer. You should be getting 1000 mg., 1 to 3 times a day. Again, make sure that you get the good quality product, and this does need to be refrigerated.
Folic Acid. If you do decide to just take the prenatal vitamin, make sure that it has the right amount of folic acid. Folic acid is very key in having great hair. Think of it like this. If the doctors tell you that you need to make sure that you are getting enough folic acid while you are pregnant so that your baby does not have certain birth defects, what makes you think that it doesn't play an important role in how we are growing? Well, our hair is also constantly growing. We all need this, and our unborn babies need this. It is absolutely essential.
3 Month Supply of Minoxidil
MINOXIDIL! Yes, it REALLY works
I didn't for a long time either. I am always very skeptical when it comes to paying more than $10.00 for something for my hair. But I was suffering from a couple of bald patches on the sides of my head. I had been under a lot of stress and I believe that stress is what caused my hair to start falling out.
I got desperate. I would have paid anything to get the hair back. Now, I will say I was extremely lucky that I could easily pull hair down and cover the patches up. But I had to tease my hair and spray quite a bit of hairspray to make sure that if the wind blew, the patches wouldn't be visible.
I really just wanted the hair back. So I tried the minoxidil.
Minoxidil is NOT a QUICK fix. It takes time. But in my experience, the hair has come back!
You MUST be diligent and apply the solution twice a day. And for women- make SURE that you use the women's formula and NOT the men's formula. I have heard of women using the men's because it is a stronger solution. They thought that it would make it come in quicker and/or thicker. But, the solution's are formulated according to whether you are a man or woman. You can cause yourself problems if you try to speed things up in this way. Don't do it.
So, Minoxidil definitely works for most people. I personally always ask my doctor before I start anything new. It's just safer. But again, this is the way to go if you have actually begun to see your scalp through your hair. In fact, this is what I have found to be the MOST helpful. I still think the vitamins made things go quicker, so I would NOT skip those.
I am putting a link to the kind that I used, but feel free to try any of them.
Kenra Thickening Glaze
Hair Products That Help You With Having The Appearance Of Thick Hair
Now on to hair products that I have found to help the look and feel of my hair to be much thicker.
Kenra Thickening Glaze. This stuff is AMAZING. It not only gives your hair texture, it can make a blow out last for several days. Since my hair is on the thin side to begin with, I HAVE to have something to give it body. I've only been using this for about 4 months, but let me just say- I will never go without this again. Never.
Kenra Volumizing Spray. I don't go without it. It does what it says it will do- adds volume. But it is not sticky and it is very workable. I like some "poof" to my hair, but I like for it to look natural. This holds, but it leaves the room you need to make adjustments as you are doing your hair.
Kenra Platinum Boosting Spray Foam. I use this when I am dressing up and I want my hair just a little bit more "Glammy." It does add some more volume, but more importantly it holds your hair all day and all night.
The thing that I like about the Kenra products is that A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. These bottles of products last a very long time. It's worth the money, and that is what I love the best.

Your Diet Does Play A Role In Having Thick Hair.
Having a good diet and good eating habits will always be the best hair thickening tip that there is. But we all know that things are hectic, and sometimes our diets come last on the list of things to do. It is sad that it has gotten to be this way, but it is the truth.
If you really get into researching this, these same vitamins that are so important in order for us to get that great head of hair, all seem to be key in preventing, and even helping cure awful diseases like cancer and diabetes. It does make sense though, do you ever see someone that has been very sick for a long time have beautiful hair? No. Sadly the answer is no. Another reason why hair loss gets worse as we get older is because the longer we let our bodies be deprived of the things that it needs, the worse the symptoms get - whether it is our hair, our skin, our weight, or whatever else it is that is bringing us down. I truly believe that cancer is nothing more than stress, putting the wrong things into our bodies, and then not doing anything to get it right.
A Tip From The Book, "Hollywood Beauty Secrets" for Volumizing Thin, Limp, Lifeless Hair

But, there is always room for improvement. Don't stop trying to make it the best it can be!
