What is it about thick hair that just makes you feel incredible?
We could blame Victoria’s Secret or Disney but whatever the reason, when you have thick hair you automatically feel glamorous.
With thin hair? Not so much. If you miss just one wash it can appear dull and lifeless. Take a car ride with the window down? Well, you’ve soon got one flat head over there.
Even if you do have thin hair, you probably still know what it feels like to fleetingly experience a thicker head of hair. And it’s usually after a trip to the salon.
But you really don’t have to spend a fortune at the hairdressers to experience the same feeling. Nope, there’s some simple, everyday things you can do to add volume. And best of all? Most of it can be done at home, for next to nix.
1. Consume more Vitamin B.
Vitamin B has a huge effect on the health of your hair. The more you get into yourself, the less likely you are to malt. There’s plenty of research that says Vitamin B is great for the central nervous system and helps strengthen and condition hair.
The best sources of vitamin B are all in your leafy green veggies, milk, yoghurt, egg whites, nuts or from meat sources like a nice hearty steak. So eat up.
2. Get some natural sea-salt in your hair.
Ever noticed how on a beach holiday your hair seems to sit with so much more body and movement? We all know it’s because of the sea’s salty water but we can’t always get ourselves down to the beach, so it’s necessary to find a home remedy that’s both cheap and easy.
All you have to do is mix one tablespoon of sea salt (NOT table salt) into about 300ml of water. Pop it in a spray bottle if you want to style your hair with it, or rinse through your hair for that just-hit-the-beach feeling.
3. Get the right hair care range.
With the right hair care range, you can amp up flat hair in a matter of minutes. The current frontrunner is the L’Oreal Paris Elvive Fibralogy thickening hair care.
