Here I am again taking advantage of free internet, I feel fresher than fresh and have a great weekend ahead of me, I thought it would be best to post this now as I don’t think I will have time until next week.
I received a message early last week where I was asked “My hair is really thin…What can I do to make it thicker ?” I thought it would be good to share my answer as it might be a frequently asked question (Advice is for both Afro hair and European hair)
- Shampoo your hair too often, it takes away all your natural oils and excessive washing will result in dry dull hair which is likely to break (tut tut )
- Relaxing your hair too often will take its toll over time (you need to relax every 4-6 weeks, consult your hairdresser for more info)
- Use Excessive Heat, you are actually asking for thin hair if you blast heat on it at every chance you get!!
- Over condition, it can leave your hair looking dull
- Rough brushing/combing…I cant stand when people brush their hair from the top to the bottom, comb with a wide tooth comb and GENTLY comb from the bottom up
- Believe that certain shampoos will make your hair thicker (Not all of them are bad but many are LIARS)
- Tight hairbands and elastic bands = easy breakage and a little bit of alopecia if you are really unlucky
- Find a hair style that disguises your hair but which also suits your face, shorter hairstyles tend to give the impression of fuller hair (be aware of your face shape)
- Get a trim at least every 6 weeks, leave those split ends and they will haunt you!
- Use hairbands that don’t cause strain
- Finger dry /Towel dry your hair first before you blowdry as it will have the same result
- Use less heat or lower heat
- Massage your scalp, it gets the blood circulation going
- Use the right products for your hair, light but effective conditioners…
- Love rollers they add bounce (rubber rollers let you sleep in peace)
- Wrap your hair at night, You still get your desired look.
