Hi Anon

Thanks for your question and welcome to Empowher!

There are many ways to help with thin hair although not really anything that will make you go from thin hair to a rich, full head of hair in a week! Or ever, perhaps.

But there are things to work with that can really help!

The first is having a good cut. Believe it or not, thin hair looks better when it's on the shorter side. Having very long thin hair simply makes it look thinner. A visit to a hair dresser can really help with this. Textured layers and some curls can do wonders. Ask for someone who specializes in this - most salons have someone who can help with your specific needs.

Color may also help. Low lights and high lights that are specially placed can take the emphasis off your thinner areas and on to the thicker ones.

There are lots of products out there that are "thickening" shampoos and conditioners. You can ask a stylist for a recommendation or check for reviews on line. Once you have some highly recommended products, you can buy them at auction online which is a lot cheaper than salon prices.

Scalp massage will help.

A good blow dryer can also give your hair great body. Use a roller brush (or wear curlers over night for tons of body!) and it might take practice but it'll help a lot.

And lastly, don't forget nutrition! For healthy hair, make sure you get enough folic acid, vitamin B, flax seeds and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) . A good multi-vitamin or other supplement will be of help to you.

Does this help?
