Hair Thickening Treatments for Stronger and Healthier Hair

by Viviscal Hair Expert on May 04, 2017

It’s almost summer, and you need your hair looking good. With so many hair thickening treatments out there claiming that they do it all, it can be frustrating figuring out which one works for you.

The goal of any thickening treatment is to make your hair strands appear fuller. This is especially true if you’ve been experiencing any hair thinning. Thicker strands can really help cover any problem areas without anyone suspecting.

Whether your thinning hair is due to diet, a less-than-ideal scalp environment, or it’s just time catching up to you, there are quite a few methods to get noticeably thicker hair. Here are four hair thickening treatments that we recommend.

Hair Growth Vitamins

There are certain nutrients that can seriously give your hair growth a boost. A lot of them are found in people’s normal diets, but it’s easy to fall below your daily recommended values if you’re not paying attention.

Your hair needs nutrients like biotin, iron, and vitamin C to grow well, but it can be a hassle finding them all in your daily diet or having to take five pills a day. We recommend our hair growth vitamin that combines the nutrients all into one, plus our special marine complex, AminoMar.

Hair Serum

Don’t overlook the power of a good hair serum or an elixir. Most hair treatments are aimed at general healthy hair principles, but hair thickening serum has only one job — to make your hair thicker.

Our densifying elixir contains zinc, biotin and keratin, as well as our exclusive thickening complex called Ana:Tel. The light, non-greasy formula works on any hair type and can be applied to wet or dry hair. A lot of women miss out on the benefits of a quality hair serum or elixir. It’s definitely something worth trying if you want to thicken the hair strands for fullness.

Essential Oils

Stimulating the scalp is one of the best ways to improve the appearance of your hair. Essential oils have antiseptic properties that clean the area around your follicles while also increasing circulation. The better your scalp circulation, the easier it is for the nutrients in your diet to get to your hair. Not to mention the refreshing feeling they give you… we love essential oils.

There are lots of different essential oils to choose from, but if you want to keep things simple, try rosemary oil. Mix it with a tiny bit of olive oil and massage it into your scalp. Wash it out after 3-4 hours.

Aloe Vera Juice

You’ll see a lot of natural hair treatments with aloe vera as one of the main ingredients. That’s because it helps make hair look healthy. All-natural aloe vera has vitamins and nutrients that can make a noticeable difference in hair thickness. It has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, so it helps keep your scalp clean and able to grow thick hair. Not only will your hair start looking thicker, but you’ll notice an improvement in your nails too.

One of the great things about aloe vera is the different ways you can use it. As we mentioned, you could find a shampoo or conditioner with it as a featured ingredient but you can also drink it. Some experts recommend drinking a cup a day. You can find it at almost any grocery store and it is not too expensive. If you can, buy in bulk.

Ultimately, the best hair thickening treatment is one that works for you. There are certainly lots of methods to choose from, but everyone’s hair responds differently. With a little bit of patience, you should see thicker hair very soon. Good luck!
