From masks and treatments to shampoos and mousse, here's a list of things that will help you create volume and thickness from any hair type! Masks. Using a mask to condition is a step in the right direction! For thick hair, look for a mask with protein like an egg mask. Natural Treatments. Aloe vera is one of the best things to apply to your hair for growth stimulation and it also acts as a thickening agent. Mix aloe vera with egg and apply to your hair as a treatment. Let the combination sit for about 15 minutes, then shampoo. As a result of using this treatment once per week, your hair will be thicker, faster! Shampoo and Conditioner. The right shampoo and conditioner can work wonders. Look for ingredients like vitamin B5 or aloe vera, which will leave hair feeling softer and thicker. Styling Mousse. For hair full of texture and body, it鈥檚 a quick fix to just tease it with some awesome mousse! Get regular haircuts. Haircuts are great for overall health of the hair. When the hair is cut, dead ends come off, making the hair more full of volume and looking much thicker than it did before. Before you style. On damp hair, use a thickening spray before styling. It gives your crown volume and allows for a flawless finish. Clarify. After a while, product buildup can weigh your hair down and make the overall look appear flat and thin. Once a week, try using a clarifying shampoo to relieve your hair of all the excess product and toxins. Wide-tooth comb, not a brush. When getting out of the shower, steer clear of a full on brush and use a wide-tooth comb instead. This will ensure that your hair resists the breakage that a fine-tooth comb may bring along with it.
@danidee, yeah I am a Cosmotologist. I quit doing hair when I got pregnant w/ my second child. I still dabble in it. BUT the older I get the harder it is for me to do it. good ole arthritis and carpel tunnel. :-( Let me know what you think about the baking soda technique. Another cheap hair fix, to treat dry and damaged hair apply coconut oil or olive oil to hair cover w shower cap or use a plastic bagel wrapped tight clip bag with hair clip, let set on hair with bag covering hair in Hot shower or bath 10-15 min. rinse then shampoo and apply regular conditioner. Helping ur dry ends and the natural oils are absorbed in hair shaft leaving the hair nice and shiny! 馃槉
did you know that a really great clarifier is a small amount of BAKING SODA POWDER and Your regular shampoo. just mix together in the palm of your hand and apply to hair leaving in for 5-10 min. rinse then apply your regular shampoo and conditioner. The baking soda breaks down all the impurities in the folicals in the hair. I promise that your hair will be deep clensed! I do this 1-2 times a month. (former Cosmotologist)
@CandieMachacek How do you plant Aloe Vera in your yard? Anyways, here's how you use aloe vera on your hair. Cut the aloe vera stem to extract the gel and mix it with one egg. The amount of aloe vera you use depends on the length of your hair. Start applying from the scalp until you reach the tip.
I have tons of Aloe Vera in my yard, so do I just cut it, and slime my head? How do I apply it, and how much egg do I use?
@TammyPruitt REALLY?! Are you really a former cosmetologist?? You should make some cards on here with some other tricks. I'm already really excited just to try this one before I shower tonight. ;)
