Is there really anything worse than that moment when you realize that your hair doesn’t look as full as it once did? Getting older certainly has its drawbacks, and this just so happens to be one of them. While you could give in to the annoyance and completely shave your head off, you can also combat the problem in a few different ways. Though we aren’t going to necessarily promise that all these so-called hacks will magically make your hair look perfect again, they can certainly do more good than harm.
Educate yourself on the matter
Boy, this seems like a cop-out on our end, doesn’t it? That’s not at all what is meant to be the case here. The truth of the matter is that the best way to go about this is to do some reading and to really educate yourself about it. Learn what you should avoid putting in your hair, research the ingredients that doctors recommend using in shampoos and conditioners, and so on and so forth. Alright, we know, this is the weakest hack on here. However, at the same time, it also will wind up being the most useful. Let that one sink in for a second.
Use thickening shampoos
One thing to be aware of with your hair is the shampoo you buy? It’s going to make a difference. If you really want to improve the fullness of your hair, don’t just blindly shop for shampoo. You’re going to want to go with a formula that is designed to provide thickening benefits. So, when shopping for shampoo, look for keywords on the bottle such as “thickening” or “volumizing.” Additionally, don’t just wash your hair with it once or twice a week. Washing your hair once every other day can help to remove excess oils, while also keeping your scalp healthy.
Get your haircut regularly
This one makes sense, right? In order to make your head fuller with hair, you need to make sure it’s being cut regularly. No, we’re not playing a cruel joke on you. You see, when you avoid getting your hair cut, that’s where limp hairs and split ends can come into the fold. So, in essence, cutting your hair is one of the best ways to ensure it grows back with more potency. As far as what we mean by “regularly,” that’s something that’s going to be a little different for everyone. Chances are, you probably already have a good idea of how often you need a haircut.
Condition your hair before your shampoo it
So, here’s an interesting question for you. When you shower, do you use shampoo or conditioner first? Or, do you even use both of them? Perhaps you use a product that has both shampoo and conditioner in it. Yet, for the best results, you probably should be using your conditioner and then the shampoo. Doing it in this order essentially creates an ideal texture for your hair. While it may not be noticeable right away, you may start to notice your hairs a little fuller than it used to be.
Why can’t everyone enjoy hair that is literally perfect at all times? Unfortunately, that’s just not the way that it goes, which is a surprise to no one. Thankfully, however, as you’ve learned today, there are tricks and pointers that you can use to help alleviate the issues that you’re potentially having with your hair. Give these a shot and see if they help. If not, you may have to look deeper into the matter. Losing hair is so fun, isn’t it?
