Tips for Stronger, Thicker Hair


Whether you have curly hair, straight hair, or something in between, it is important to make sure that you protect your hair and use the right products in order to have stronger and thicker hair. Here are a list of ways that you can try to achieve this goal.

Use a Protein Treatment

Protein treatments can be used once or twice a week to help keep your hair stronger. The treatment boosts your hair with nutrients that are vital for your strands and proteins such as keratin to help keep your hair strong. Protein treatments are especially great for those who color, lighten, or chemically texturize their hair to help lessen any damage on hair.

Castor Oil

Castor oil is high in Vitamin E and fatty acids which promotes hair growth. You can massage castor oil onto your scalp regularly two to three times a week. The oil helps to moisturize your scalp naturally without clogging your pores, increasing your chances for healthy, lustrous hair.

Avoid Excessive Heat

Heat damage is one of the worst things that can happen to your hair because you can lose your natural curl pattern and your hair can become weak and split. It is best to allow your hair to air dry after you wash it or use the cool setting on your blow dryer. This will help prevent your hair from excessive breakage. If you must use hot tools, use them as infrequently as possible with a heat protectant.
