Want Thicker Hair? Follow These 10 Steps

If you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from hair loss, you’re not alone. Whether you’re experiencing increased stress due to COVID, are taking a medication that can cause hair loss or are just seeing thinner hair due to a change in diet or another lifestyle factor, hair loss can be disappointing. But with the right products, a solid hair wellness routine and some self love, you can learn how to revitalize thinning hair to get the thicker look you want. 

10 Steps to Getting Thicker Hair

The actual size of your individual hair strands is unlikely to change significantly — you've either got thick hair, fine hair or something in between. But you absolutely can take steps to increase the fullness, volume and growth for thicker-looking hair.

Follow these steps to get thicker, healthier looking hair: 

 1. Wash With The Right Shampoo & Conditioner

Cleansing and moisturizing your hair with shampoo and conditioner is a critical first step in any hair routine, and it's important you find products that can help your hair appear thicker. Start by washing your hair in the shower by massaging in our 2-IN-1 HAIR TREATMENT to your damp hair. One of its primary ingredients is castor oil which encourages microcirculation to repair damage from heat styling and hair dyes.


2. But Don't Overwash

While a good wash day routine is important, you don't want to overwash your hair either. Why? Washing your hair every single day could strip your hair follicles of its natural oils due to excessive exposure to unfiltered hard water. Plus, overwashing could lead to increased hair fall. Find a wash schedule that works for your hair type so it leaves you feeling clean without overdoing it.


3. Go Easy With Your Hair Brush

The type of hair brush and the technique you use can have a huge impact on your hair. Reduce breakage to maintain your gorgeous, thick hair by brushing your hair starting with your ends and working your way up as you detangle. Brushing your hair in this gentle way avoids damaging your hair and reduces hair fall.

Using the bottoms-up hair-brushing method allows you to detangle your hair without encouraging breakage or split ends. If your hair is curly or tangles easily, detangle your hair with a wide-toothed comb in the shower while you have conditioner in — this is the gentlest way to get tangle-free hair while reducing hair fall.


4. Apply Hair Serum to Your Roots to Encourage New Growth

After shampooing and conditioning, let your hair dry and then use Line Refined Hair Serum —  — to deliver hair wellness nutrients straight to your roots.

Give your roots the boost it needs with our best-selling, 100% vegan serum (and none of the harsh chemicals or side effects of other options out there). Fill your dropper with serum and apply a few drops directly to your scalp focusing on thinning areas, working in sections and massaging it in with your fingertips to cover as much of your scalp as possible. There's no need to rinse it out, and you can use it morning or evening — whatever works best with your routine.



5. Give Your Scalp Some Love

Good hair starts at the roots so it's important you give your scalp the attention it deserves. A healthy scalp has an impact on how your hair looks and feels so it's important to treat it well and exfoliate regularly.



6. Avoid Heat Styling

It's tempting to reach for your hair straightener or curling iron — and you don't need to give it up completely — but reducing heat styling can help with thinning hair. Heat styling leads to dry, damaged hair and inevitable breakage. By reducing heat styling, you set your hair up to be healthier and thicker.

If you can't give up heat styling 100% (we get it!), make sure to use heat-protectant products before using your heat tools to reduce damage.


7. Reduce Stress

Did you know that stress can lead to hair loss? Yup, increased stress causes your body to release cortisol, or the stress hormone, which can affect how your hair follicles function and reducing new hair growth. Addressing your stress and finding ways to reduce it a critical step in your journey towards hair wellness.

First, figure out what is causing you stress and ask yourself if there's way to cut back in those areas. Then, follow up with a self-care routine that you know works well for you. Yoga may be great for some people but if you know it doesn't work for you, find something that does. Be it a hobby, setting better boundaries at work or getting a babysitter for relaxing date night, finding tangible ways to reduce stress is key to achieving and maintaining healthy hair.

8. Eat a Nutrient-Rich Diet

If you're experiencing thinning hair or more hair loss than usual, your diet might be the cause. Without the right nutrients, your body may have a hard time growing healthy hair or even lead to increased hair thinning. Make sure you're eating foods that support hair growth and take supplements as needed.

You can have the best routine and products in the world, but if your diet is lacking critical nutrients, you may not totally get the hair results you want. Remember, hair wellness is a holistic process — everything is connected.


9. Get a Boost With Biotin Gummies

Gorgeous hair starts from the inside out. While applying topical products can certainly help combat hair loss, providing your hair with all the nutrients it needs for strong growth can enhance the results you see.


10. Massage Your Scalp Daily

A daily scalp massage is one of the most underrated practices for healthy hair growth and it's easy with to do with a hand-held scalp massager, which is perfect for a simple product-free scalp massage or to work in your serums,
