Whether your hair is prone to damage which makes styling hard, or it’s simply too thin to create a ‘voluminous’ look, we’re here to guide you through some of the industry’s best kept secrets to help you get stronger and fuller-looking locks. Read on to find out for yourself! 

Medical Procedures

If your hair is on the thinner side through hair loss or premature balding, you could opt for a hair transplant to even out the overall look of your hair. Hair transplants are available around the world and technological advancements have made it possible to receive the treatment and enjoy minimal downtime after the procedure, depending on the technique. With hair transplant Turkey cost being lower than most, you could travel, have the procedure and return home with no one any the wiser as to why you travelled. This truly is an ideal solution for those who are nervous or self-conscious about the procedure!

Check For Zinc Deficiency

If your hair is proving particularly breakable, you could have lower zinc levels than is ideal. In fact, zinc deficiency can cause your hair to shed. Worry not, however, as simple changes to your diet could improve this. Brazil nuts, walnuts, pecans, cashews, almonds and, of course, a lot of vegetables, fruits, salads and water can help you build up your zinc levels and promote a healthier, stronger head of hair. If this still doesn’t seem to be working, you could take multivitamins or zinc supplements, but it’s best to discuss this with your doctor beforehand.

Learn More About Your Hair

The best way to get stronger hair is to learn more about what it’s like naturally. Is it particularly dry, or is it oilier than most? Are you highly active and is your hair tied up most of the time? What hair products do you use? These kinds of things can affect your hair and its health, so learning this inside out can help you decide what needs to be changed and adjusted to promote better hair health.

Avoid Layering

If you have naturally thin hair, avoid layering when you have it cut as this could actually make it look even thinner! Layering, thinning and razoring can all reduce the fullness of your hair and when your hair is already thin and breakable, this could be too much for your hair to go through regardless. Of course, getting a trim and cutting away those split ends will help your hair regain health overall, but try and keep the cut as ‘blunt’ and straight as possible if you want it to look thicker.

Don’t Wash It As Often

This might have some of you turning up your nose, but reducing the amount that you wash your hair could be the only solution you need! Some of us wash our hair every single day and while some locks can handle this, others could benefit from stepping back and putting away the shampoo every other day. This gives your hair a chance to replenish the natural oils that give hair natural life and strength. By washing every day, you’re essentially washing these out before they can do their job! Hair can be temperamental. Between bad hair days and inexplicably weak strands, it can be tempting to shove it up with a hairband and be done with it. However, there are plenty of ways to help improve the health of your hair overall, and hopefully our tips have given you a good place to start.
