How to get thicker and longer hair

You cannot escape your genetics.

If nature has blessed you with a thick head of strong hair, then everything is fine if you want it long and thick. Just let it grow.

If you are not lucky enough to be genetically disposed for long hair, there is no need to give up. You can still do a lot to care for your hair, so that it looks healthy and has more volume.

This applies both to your daily hair care routines and the way you treat your hair at other times.

The 8 best tips to care for your hair and give it volume

Are you prepared to make an effort to get thicker hair? Here are some dos and don’ts to bear in mind, and our best advice on how to give your hair more fullness and volume.

1. Leave your smoothing iron in the drawer

Heat styling is hard on your hair. 

So avoid using heat to style your hair, e.g. with a blow dryer, smoothing iron or curling irons. It wears the hair down and is not good for volume.

2. Cut down on hair washing 

Do you wash your hair every day as a habit, when you take a hot shower? 

It is not necessary, and is not as good for your hair as you might think. If you can live with it, then it is best to make do with washing your hair twice a week. Your hair will soon get used to not being washed every single day, and will stop looking greasy. 

3. Buy a mild shampoo

It makes a difference what kind of shampoo you use on your hair.

Many hair products contain a range of harsh ingredients, so it is a good idea to choose a mild shampoo.

4. Don’t forget to use a conditioner

Find your conditioner every time you wash your hair.

Conditioner simply cherishes hair, and adds lots of moisture to each strand of hair. So make it a habit always to use conditioner when you have rinsed the shampoo out of your hair. 

5. Leave your hair loose at night

It may be practical to gather it with an elastic band. But that is wearing on your hair.

So think about letting your hair down, and leave it loose when your head goes down on the pillow. It will give your hair a break, so it is less worn in the places where you normally have an elastic or a clip to hold it.

6. Avoid colouring your hair

Hair dye is not the best health cure for your hair.

It can make your hair more fragile and thus more likely to snap. If you can live with the hair colour nature has assigned for you, that is definitely best for your hair.

7. Do your hair in different styles

It is easy to do your hair the same way day after day in front of the mirror after you get dressed. But if you use an elastic scrunchie or clip in your hair in precisely the same place every day, your hair may easily break.

And that does not exactly help you to grow healthier or thicker hair, quite the contrary.

8. Get lots of sleep and eat a healthy diet

Last, but not least, your lifestyle also decides how healthy your hair is. 

Go to bed at a sensible time and eat a healthy, varied diet. This will also help to improve hair production and make your hair look healthier, with more fullness.
