5 Ways to Thicken Your Hair Naturally
Thinning/fine hair is a problem that plagues so many of us (especially as we age) and it seems that everyone has a solution for you. But how do you cut through the noise and figure out what genuinely works?
We’ve found 5 ways to thicken men’s hair that WORK - and make you look awesome.
So how did we figure this out?
There’s trial and error, there’s creative solutions and then there’s sea salt spray.
You’ve seen it in your partner’s or friend’s bathroom and thought “huh, I wonder if that works?”
Well let us tell you - it’s a game-changer when it comes to adding thickness and fullness to your hair.
1. Sea Salt Spray
Sea Salt Texturizing Spray is an everyday essential for everyone- whether you rock longer locks or a shorter, choppier cut, Sea Salt Texturizing Spray is the styling product that will give you that ‘X’ factor.
You know how after a day in the ocean your hair is messy but somehow looks amazing? Sea Salt Spray gives you that instant texturized look while adding volume and fullness. Sea Salt Spray helps to thicken the appearance of thinning hair too, if that’s your concern. A couple of sprays is all you need to get on with your day. Let it dry in naturally or style it using a blowdryer, your call.
What started as a staple for summer has quickly become a year-round regimen for men worldwide. Spray on wet or dry hair, scrunch - and you can stop there, or finish with your favorite styling product.
This is our favourite, no-fuss way to thicken hair while maintaining a laid-back, tousled look.
2. Hair-Thickening Shampoo &
Hair Thickening Conditioner
Hair-Thickening Shampoos & Conditioners are easy to integrate into your daily routine, but beware of products that just masquerade as hair-thickening products. Checking out the ingredients is important when picking the right hair-thickening shampoo and hair-thickening conditioner.
Keep an eye out for ingredients that work naturally, such as:
- Panthenol: strengthens your hair.
- Kakadu Plum Fruit Extract: nourishes your scalp and promotes hair growth.
- Peppermint Oil: stimulates circulation, bringing fresh blood supply to your skin cells, which feed and nourish your hair follicles to promote hair growth.
The aim is to strengthen your hair from the root to the ends, so that new hair that grows from within the follicle is strong and healthy.
3. Hair Food
Sometimes your hair needs some extra TLC - like one of those IVs designed to eliminate your hangover - except for your hair!
We have just the thing - VITAMAN’s Hair Food is a natural infusion of all of the vitamins needed to strengthen and thicken your hair from root outwards.
Think of it as a shower intermission - you shampoo, rinse, then massage in Hair Food and leave in for 15 minutes before you rinse and move on to your conditioner.
Alternatively, some prefer to leave it in all-day as a light styling product, which provides an effective treatment on your scalp (but won’t offer any additional hair-thickening benefits). But… we’re all for a product that you can use in multiple ways!
Natural ingredients are key to creating an amazing hair-thickening solution. Key ingredients to look for in your products are:
- Saw Palmetto Fruit Extract: assists in promoting hair growth.
- Sage Leaf Extract: stimulates blood circulation
- Quandong Seed Extract: nourishes hair to give you stronger, healthy hair.
4. Styling Gel Formulated for Thin/Fine Hair
Some styling gels will weigh you down even worse than your ex did. That’s why all styling gels are not created equal - if you have fine/medium hair and you’re looking to build volume and thickness, you need to use a styling gel specifically formulated for fine/thin hair.
Why? Caked on styling gel is just going to look like a sticky mess and draw attention to the problem - your fine/thinning hair.
Don’t worry though, there are plenty of products that won’t weigh your hair down or draw unwanted attention. VITAMAN has specially formulated Styling Gel for Fine/Thinning hair that allows you to style your hair to achieve a voluminous, tousled look, without making your hair hard or sticky (yuck). It rinses out easily with water, so no dry flaky build up, just added thickness and fullness. Win-win!
5. Thinning Hair Treatment Kit
Okay, sometimes we need to pull out all the stops to get the thick, voluminous hair of our dreams. It’s not always easy and it’s not always an instant process - when your hair needs a little extra help and styling gel doesn’t do the trick, we suggest finding a full system to live by - use a specially formulated shampoo and conditioner duo PLUS a vitamin-infused treatment.
One of our best-selling kits will do the trick (and then some!) VITAMAN’s Thinning Hair Treatment Kit contains our hair-thickening shampoo & conditioner as well as Hair Food - this kit is the epitome of giving the people what they want!
Oh… and have we mentioned that these are ALL natural? Zero harsh chemicals to strip your hair or scalp - just nourishing, natural ingredients, all sourced from beautiful Australia’s native botanicals. Can you even imagine the smell? Amazing.
So you have hair a little more on the fine side… or it’s downright thinning. No sweat - there are tons of waves to pump up the volume, boost your roots and nourish your hair naturally.
PS - pro tip: make sure to massage your scalp regularly when you are using these products to further increase circulation and stimulate hair growth.
Choose the right products for you - think about your lifestyle, your look - and then take the plunge and try some out.
