The first factor of thin hair that you can blame your parents and race for is genetics. The thickness of the hair is directly related to this factor. African-Americans have the thickest hair, while Europeans the thinnest. Other factors include unfavorable environment, wrong hair care products, frequent heat treatment such as blow-drying your hair, washing your hair with hot water, or straightening it with an iron.

For healthy thick hair, you need to wash your hair less often – no more than three times a week – so that you don't strip the scalp of the production of sebum, which is the body's natural defense mechanism. After washing your hair, rinse it with cold water to stimulate blood circulation.

Get rid of stress

If you want thick hair, you need to worry less! This way you will not only look better, but it will also make yourself better in many other areas of your life.

Vitamins you get from healthy foods have a positive impact on the condition of your hair, so you really shouldn't neglect this point. You definitely should add the following foods to your diet: quality proteins (lentils, tofu, nuts), healthy fats (avocado, seeds, coconut oil, olive oil), minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins of group B are also essential.

Apart from a different style and mood, dyeing your hair may make your hair a lot thicker, which will give it extra volume. If you blow-dry your hair, use a round brush. Many people reckon that only hairdressers have the skill of using it, but if you have a bit of practice, you can master it and do it on your own to easily create volume. Also, you can consult a master in a salon to pick the hairstyle that adds more volume your hair.
