Everyone wants to look their best but when it comes to appearances, hair can be difficult to control.

From adverse weather conditions messing up your mane to damage due to excessive use of styling tools, there are many reasons why your hair can become thin and dull. Luckily, there are also plenty of ways to boost hair health. So, whether you have simply been the victim of a few bad hair days, or your locks have become less luscious and limper with age, here are a few ways you can restore volume and thickness to thin hair.

Medical Hairline Tattoo

Many people have heard of microblading and understand how this treatment can make brows appear thicker. However, medical hairline tattoos are less heard of. These types of tattoos, also known as advanced tricho pigmentation (ATP) are a great solution for individuals with a receding hairline. It is a non-surgical procedure that involves the application of natural pigments to a patient’s scalp or brow, and it gives the illusion of a fuller head of hair.

Protect Your Head

Sunshine is a great source of vitamin D, which in the correct level of doses is beneficial for the skin and mind. However, too much sunshine combined with a lack of protection can result in a sunburnt scalp. Besides feeling terrible and looking unsightly, a burnt scalp can cause hair to start shedding. Not to mention, it can also directly weaken hair and make it brittle. Protect your head by wearing a hat and staying in the shade during the sunniest part of the day.

Hair Transplant

A hair transplant may sound like a scary procedure but it is an effective way to improve hair growth. It involves taking hair follicles from a part of the body that has an abundance of hair and transferring it to a part that is lacking hair. When the procedure is performed by a specialist, you can expect a natural-looking result. It is the ideal procedure for people who have already lost a large amount of hair.

Change Your Parting

Humans are creatures of habit, and many people tend to stick to the same parting for a long, long time. Your hair probably has a natural part but allowing your hair to stay in place constantly causes your hair to lie flat. By changing your part intentionally, you increase the volume naturally. For more bounce, style a deep side part by swooshing your hair over to the side of your head that doesn’t usually have a parting. Use a rattail comb to create your part, then keep it in place with a touch of hairspray.

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is fabulous for those days when you lack time, or you just cannot be bothered to wash your hair. However, dry shampoo is also great for volumizing lacklustre hair. Adding a layer to your roots and gently backcombing it can give fine, thin and limp hair the boost it needs.
