Protect What You Have

Even though you’ll want to focus on growing more hair, the best place to start when it comes to achieving a longer, thicker mane is with the hair you already have. To protect the hair on your head from further damage and potential hair loss, switch to a wide tooth comb or wet brush to detangle, especially when it’s wet. Also, try to take a break from heat-styling. If you can’t, use a thermal protector and opt for ionic tools, as they will shorten styling time. Lastly, try sleeping on a silk pillowcase. It’s gentler on your hair and skin and it looks fancy af - you’ll love it. Our favorite pillowcases are by SLIP. If you do want to heat style your hair, make sure to use a Heat protectant like our Hair Oil, a pump or two before applying heat will prevent split ends from traveling up the hair shaft and causing strands to break.

Add to Your Diet

Real hair growth requires proper nutrition and proper hydration (delivered at the root) so drink more water and supplement your diet with our Thinning hair supplement. If you drink enough water, your body won’t have to use the water from your hair for other more vital organs (which, as you can imagine, leads to breakage and thinning). Our Thinning supplement works for pretty much anyone who wants better hair and more of it and contains a powerful punch of vitamins and nutrients that supports healthy growth, like MSM, Ashwagandha, Amino Acids, Omegas 3 & 6 and Biotin.

Wait For It

If you remember one thing from this article, remember this; Hair growth takes time. Even if you make changes to your diet and are careful with the hair you have, you likely won’t see results for about 3 months, or maybe more. Don’t give up! In the meantime, trim dead ends and treat your hair to masks and oil treatments so your hair will be long AND healthy. If you’re really impatient, opt for extensions or root concealers, which will make you hair look thicker, instantly.
