4 Easy Hacks for Thicker Looking Hair
- Posted on: May 8 2019
Looking for thicker hair with or without hair transplant surgery? We are sharing 4 easy hair hacks to help you achieve fuller looking hair.
Micro-pigmentation isn’t just for your eyebrows, it’s also for your scalp! Scalp micro-pigmentation is a non-surgical resolution to create fuller, more dense looking hair. Natural and organic micro dots are placed with a single needle tattoo gun at the epidermal level to mimic a real hair follicle. This is a permanent treatment that requires touch ups every 3-6 years. We have an amazing scalp micro-pigmentation artist here at Utah Hair Restoration. View her before and after photos HERE.
Try to avoid products that leave your hair looking and feeling greasy because it will weigh it down and leave your hair looking flat. Not sure which products to avoid? Look for products that do not contain alcohol. Alcohol will leave your hair feeling extremely dry, especially thin hair. Look for products that are labeled “volume boosting” to help your hair appear thicker. Also, texture spray will add both volume and texture to the hair.
Choose the Right Hairstyle
Certain hairstyles will look more flattering on someone with fine and thinning hair. Avoid any hairstyle that is going to be too straight or single length because it can also leave your hair looking flat. Instead, try adding in some curls and layers to the hair if possible.
Medications and Treatments
Medications like Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (Minoxidil) are great medications that slow the hair loss process and in some cases, thicken existing hair. Our in-office PRP (platelet rich plasma) with ACell treatments can help stimulate shrinking follicles to produce longer, thicker hairs. Typically after one treatment, patients start seeing result after 6 to 12 weeks thought it can take up to one year. Where follicles have gone completely dormant, the only way to bring back hair in those areas is with hair transplant surgery. That being said, PRP with ACell is a great option for those more-so in the thinning process with less actual balding. Learn more about PRP with ACell injections HERE.
