If you have limp locks, avoid loading them with conditioner and go for less quantity. Most people avoid it but if you want to keep healthy and shiny hair, give it a try.
Keep up with the cuts
Never ignore trimming as hair need proper attention. So, after six to eight weeks, go for hair trim it will make your locks look full and healthier. One thing women always remember that over-layering is not suitable for thin hair. As Mannah said,”You want the shape to look thicker, especially on the ends, too much layering does the opposite.”
Use a weekly treatment mask
According to dermatologist Debra Jaliman, MD, deep conditioning once a week can fill damaged areas and make your hair appear thicker. People with thin hair should choose mask loaded with antioxidants and omega fatty acids and yes don’t forget vitamin A and C.
Beware of heat
Styling is must and women prefer it to look more attractive but as per Dr Jaliman suggestion, “Don’t set your hair tool on high temperature as It needs a lower setting,” she says, “otherwise it can, quite literally, fry and break.”
Eat for healthy hair
Besides all the practical efforts, your daily diet matters the most. Everyone knows protein is essential for overall health and so does for hair. Also, sufficient amount of protein is necessary for thick and long hair. Moreover, Nutritionist and registered dietitian, Brooke Alpert, RD says,“A person should get the required amount of protein from natural resources and hence fill you meals with organic chicken, nuts and greek yogurt. Along with this, plant based sources of protein such as seeds and beans are essential as well. ”
