3 Things To Make Your Fine Hair Look Thicker

You've heard the saying a million times.  We all want what we can't have right?  If you have thin hair you want thick hair, if you have thick hair you want thin hair, if you have short hair you want long hair, and the list goes on.  I have had many women who have thin hair ask me how can they make their hair thicker.  Unfortunately the truth is that if you have always had thin hair for your entire life you can pretty much count on it staying that way.  There are a few things that you could do to make it "appear" thicker though.  Let's jump right in.

  1. Keep your hair short- If your hair is thin, don't let long hair be your ultimate goal.  The longer your thin hair gets the thinner it will start to look.  Aim to have your hair come right above your shoulders or shorter.  The shorter you have it cut, the thicker it will appear.
  2. Try hair fillers- Hair fillers come in little cans that you actually shake onto the thin areas of your hair.  It comes in many different colors and helps to make your scalp not show at all.  See more info here.  I have actually used this on my clients and they loved it.  It comes out when you shampoo your hair and causes no damage at all to the hair.
  3. Ditch the relaxers- If your hair is relaxed AND is thin, you may want to consider going natural. Not having a relaxer will definitely make your hair thicker.  Even if you are not interested in wearing your hair in its natural state, thin hair is easier to straighten and keep straight.  All you would have to do is wrap it.

Thin hair doesn't necessarily mean that you can see your scalp through the hair.  Your hair could just be fine, meaning it's diameter is not as large as someone with thick coarse hair. These tips will still help you.  The reason why I say not to aim for longer hair is that as it gets longer it will only start looking thinner and because as you age the hair becomes thinner.  

The client shown in the pics above has thin hair but is in the process of transitioning to natural hair.  In her transition process I can already noticeably tell the difference in the hair that has relaxer on it and the hair that doesn't.
