How To Make Your Hair Thicker!

Although i already have thick hair, i also incorporated these practices into my regimen to get more thickness. To me, there's no such thing as hair that is TOO thick lol. The thicker the better..and healthier too. :)

1. I air dry up to 90% of the time. If not, i do rollersets.

2. I incorporated Castor oil into my regimen. I use it as a sealant to seal in my moisturizer. You can also mix it in with your deep conditioners if you want.

3. Make sure your moisturizers/leave-ins/deep conditioners contain Panthenol. Panthenol is an ingredient in some hair products that acts as a thickening agent, and thickens the hair strands up to 10%

4. Deep condition weekly with a light protein based conditioner. I use Lekair cholesterol mixed with coconut oil!

5. Trim off the thin, see through ends.

6. Stretch relaxers to avoid over processing, which leads to thin damaged hair. I stretch up to 6 months.

7. I do not use heat on my hair. The only heat i use comes from when i sit under the dryer with rollers on my head, which is only twice a month.
