How to Get Thicker Hair, According to Hairstylists

FashionHow to Get Thicker Hair, According to Hairstylists

On the list of hair wishes, it’s safe to say thicker hair ranks right up there with scoring Blake Lively’s no-matter-the-season-beach-ready waves. But in a sea of products, tonics, potions, and vitamins, it can be tough to know what actually works. 

For starters, it’s important to know why you may have thin or thinning hair, says Flora Fuentes, a certified hair restoration specialist and owner of Unique Hair Concepts.

“The primary reason men and women experience thinning hair or hair loss is due to heredity,” she says. “This is commonly known as male pattern or female pattern hair loss. This type of thinning hair or hair loss is primarily noticeable along the hairline, top of the head, or crown.”

Fuentes says other causes of thinning hair and hair loss are the result of hormonal changes, poor diet, stress, aging, vitamin deficiencies, and certain hairstyles and treatments. Certain health conditions, such as an autoimmune disorder, may also cause thinning hair.

So while some types of hair loss can’t be prevented, nourishing hair from the inside out is key in the quest for thicker hair, Fuentes says.

“Antioxidants help protect hair follicles against damage from harmful free radicals,” she says. “Eating antioxidant-rich foods, such as berries, turmeric, avocados and green vegetables, is not only good for your health but promotes healthy hair growth.” Supplements that include omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, green tea, and vitamin D3 may also help with hair growth.
